I Can’t Imagine Living Without This App!
It was always frustrating to hear some low level voices when I was listening to Podcasts on my Macbook Pro and walked away to do other things. And, as might be expected, music sounded tinny, but I didnt want to invest in computer speakers since my laptop is my 2nd floor computer and there isn’t a lot of room where I use it. This app has resolved both volume level for Podcasts and improved the quality of music when I want to listen to Apple Music while I work. I agree with the other reviewer who says it should be included or recommended with the purchase of every Mac. Most of us have quality speakers and/or headphones for serious music appreciation/listening. But the choice of putting on headphones or purchasing redundant and pricey speakers for multiple areas of our workspace or homes where use our laptops is neither possible nor practical. Boom 2 fills that vast void between low volume/ tinny sound; and Audiophile quality. Not only does the spoken word sound richer, clearer, with amplified volume, but Boom 2 also adds enough quality to music to make it enjoyable. Being able to adjust the EQ for each, makes a huge difference. Thank You!
I’ve had this app for years now. Just now writing a review that’ll get lost in the hundreds but want to show my appreciation.
This will totally change how audio sounds on your Mac. It’s especially apparent with headphones. If you’ve got weak headphones, this app will make them sound like a $200 pair. Your laptop’s internal speakers are still limited of course, but you’ll at least be able to make out the bass now!
That said, if you do any sort of audio editing or mixing, especially music, DO NOT route your DAW/audio editor output through Boom. I do amateur production and always forget I’ve got the default settings and Boom going. Doing so will sound great, but when you play the audio anywhere else without Boom, it’ll likely sound bad as you don’t have Boom’s equalization which is what you mixed to. Same reason you’re unlikely to make a quality mix on non-studio headphones or monitors. Pretty obvious for most amateur producers but for you Fruity Loopers, it’s worth mentioning. :D
The best there is
I spend a great deal of time working with my headphones on, and it always bugged me that many of my favorite albums sounded far worse from my Macbook than they did from other devices, even with a solid pair of headphones. Yes - digital audio is highly compressed, much more so for streaming audio. But still - everything was far too flat and lacked depth.
Boom completely changed that. I’m generally skeptical of EQ programs, but this is an absolute must-have if you want quality audio. The upgrade to Boom 2 was also very much worth it - again, I didn’t anticipate that much of an improvement over the initial app, but the wider array of presets + the greater manual customization are excellent.
I can’t imagine having to go back to listening to my music on my Macbook without Boom.
