"Improvement is disingenuous"

August 04, 2011  |  By suprtomatobxb

 |  Version: DFX Audio Enhancer for Windows Media Player 9.301

Pros

It appears to improve sound quality. Yes, if you turn it off, you wonder how you ever listened to music before without it.

Cons

But, it didn't really sound that bad before!!! They make your music sound worse than it really is. Try this, turn the features off. While playing music, uninstall the program. Then it sounds good again. This is obviously not a mistake.

Summary

Should I really pay a company for a product that I don't think is being honest with me?

"Absolute garbage. I own the Plus version."

May 29, 2011  |  By SoftwareTestPilot

 |  Version: DFX Audio Enhancer for Windows Media Player 9.301

Pros

none what so ever.

Cons

I downloaded the plus version to use with Windows 7 64-bit. Windows Media Player actually has a decent amplifier and equalizer, but they made it almost impossible to find. I downloaded this software and actually paid for the premium Plus version.

Summary

It sound absolutely horrendous with my high end Sennheiser headphones. The sound crackles when any of the features like Fidelity, Ambience, 3D Surround, Dynamic Boost and Hyperbass are moved past the 1 slots. Are you idiots at DFX serious? ***? I tried this on 3 family members' computers and two friends. Every time the sound was so distorted and crackling, I had to uninstall. I tried everything to make sure it wasn't something I was doing wrong. Do NOT pay for this pile of sh*t.

"Excellent for those with WMP Problems.."

May 23, 2011  |  By DoctorOFDoom

 |  Version: DFX Audio Enhancer for Windows Media Player 9.301

Pros

This unit even in it's lite free form is very helpful for those who need amplification of their Window Media Player

Cons

Limited control in the lite form. There is much more control when one buys the full unit....

Summary

Excellent volume booster for Windows Media Player...lite form
Excellent volume booster and special effects with full form for WMP

April 20, 2011  |  By mdyunus60

 |  Version: DFX Audio Enhancer for Windows Media Player 9.301

Pros

well i guess i have to award them 100 stars for making a fool of everybody who is on window 7 64 bit operating system, a job well done.

Cons

i had downloaded it three times and i clicked 64 bit system as instructed by this rocket scientist manual and
guess what, yes you are right i received the 32 bit system three times in a row and now i have to award them
stars!!!!!!!!!!

"Doesn't work anywhere as well as SRS HD Audio Lab"

February 01, 2011  |  By rskenderian

 |  Version: DFX Audio Enhancer for Windows Media Player 9.301

Pros

Slight improvement in sound. That's all.

Cons

You have to buy one for each player.Sound improvement is mediocre. SRS HD Audio Lab works with any sound from any source, so you only need to buy one.

Summary

Buy SRS HD Audio Labs instead, which has many more settings, like Video, Music, or Game settings, and also has Headphone, Laptop, and Speaker (2.0, 2.1, 5.1, and 7.1) settings. SRS also has advanced controls - SRS 3D Space, SRS 3D Center, SRS True Bass, Speaker Size for bass, SRS Focus, SRS Definition, and a Limiter. ALSO ... the 30-day trial is fully functional, so you know exactly what you're buying. Yes, it costs more - but it works with ANY sound from ANY source ... and you do really get what you pay for. Guaranteed; if you use SRS HD Audio Lab, you won't want to listen to anything without it. I don't.

"The price is reasonable--pay for the complete package."

December 23, 2010  |  By cjohnblum

 |  Version: DFX Audio Enhancer for Windows Media Player 9.301

Pros

Really brings audio to life. I also purchased the DFX USB Adapter to get the best possible sound out of my computer. I think the improvement in sound was well worth what I paid.

Cons

Default settings are too extreme, but it's easy to tone down the effects. I found the headphone option not to my liking, but the speaker option works great (even on headphones).

Summary

Significant improvement in sound if set up properly. Good value--get great sound on your computer, without investing in a new sound card.

"OK, but nothing super special"

December 02, 2010  |  By foyman

 |  Version: DFX Audio Enhancer for Windows Media Player 9.301

Pros

It does tend to give some very limited enhancement to audio. I use it for high quality cd music that I have on ripped to my computer. It's free.

Cons

I assume the DFX PLUS ($20) would provide some real enhancement but the free package does not.

Summary

I've played with all the adjustment options and the bottom line is that the basic DFX Enhancer is very limited in it's ability to greatly improve music quality. That being said it is a nice free download to have.
