Editors' Review

Download.com Staff Sep 4, 2014

Boom works mostly in the background to enhance the audio quality of anything you're playing on your Mac. You can adjust the program's settings any way you want and at any time, and you'll likely be impressed at the increased clarity this app provides.

Pros

Lots of options: Through Boom's main interface, you can adjust all kinds of settings to fine-tune the audio quality. For instance, you can turn on the Equalizer, which improves overall clarity. You can also customize the output sound for different occasions, with options that include Party, Music, Bass Boost, Treble Boost, and more.

Convenient interface: Boom runs from your Mac's top toolbar, and you can quickly adjust the volume from there. You can also open up the app's main interface, which includes all kinds of options for maximizing your sound quality in a clear, convenient layout. And you can set hot keys to turn boost up or down.

Cons

No quick instructions: There is nowhere to go to get quick help with this program. If you do want to access the manual, you have to download it separately, which seems like an unnecessary extra step.

Bottom Line

Boom can make a big difference in the way you listen to music on your Mac. Its interface is accessible to users of all experience levels, and the multiple options for customization make it a great tool to have on hand. You can try it for free for 7 days, and it costs $6.99 to purchase.
