Editors' Review

An iTunes alternative, Vox provides you with greater control over music playback.

Pros

Broad file compatibility: Vox for Mac plays more file formats than iTunes, including FLAC, a smaller file that doesn't compromise on quality.

Good startup: Vox has an excellent startup process, where it walks you through a few features of the app. For instance, you can choose to have Vox play only files that aren't supported by iTunes, or you can choose to have it play all file types instead.

Equalizer controls: This is a feature that many music lovers will really enjoy. Vox allows you to access a graphic equalizer panel where you can fine-tune the sound quality that you're getting from the player. This becomes especially important for people who use external, high-quality speakers and want to get the best quality sound. Vox's equalizer is easy to fine-tune and control and comes with a lot of useful presets.

Cons

Slightly confusing interface: The Vox interface is a little confusing beyond the basic play controls. The buttons aren't labeled, and it is not immediately clear what does what. It takes a little fumbling around to get used to.

Bottom Line

If you're looking for a better music player, or for one that plays file types beyond what iTunes can handle, Vox is a great choice. It works well and gives you the fine-tuned control over playback that iTunes lacks.

"Simple music player that improves sound quality."

March 07, 2015  |  By Marc Clark--2008

 |  Version: Vox 2.4.1

Pros

Seemingly warmer tones from your music over iTunes.
Easy, unobtrusive interface.

Cons

A minor complaint but a big one for me. Organizing albums in "record store" fashion is not possible as far as I can tell. You know, Rolling Stones listed alphabetically under "r"; Rod Stewart listed under "S". I'm old, I admit it. But, dagnabbit! that's how I'm used to finding my albums.

Summary

Solid but lightweight app that brings somewhat richer tones to your speakers no matter their size. I recommend.
