What is the end result of attending too many rock concerts and listening to too much music in our teenage years? Boomers have hearing problems. What did you say? No, literally. Say what?
Hearing loss occurs to most of us when we grow older (or marry, have children, same things, right?). What my wife and I find these days is that we need more volume from the volume controls on TV, stereo, Mac and iPhone. Mac users, please! There is a way to improve the sound of your Mac, either from the built-in speaker, headphones, earphones, or home entertainment speakers.
The appropriate name Hear provides a dozen audio enhancement tools to enhance the sound that comes from your Mac.
General – These settings control SuperBass, DeWoofer, Ambiance and Fidelity with convenient slider settings. And, yes, volume.
EQ – With the built-in equalizer, you can set frequencies that suit your listening device. room, garage, basement or headphone.
In addition, Hear has an audio mixer, 3D audio, an Ambiance control, special sound effects, a Limiter, and more tools to make sure the audio comes from your Mac is better than what
or, in that least a bit higher.
The presets alone will convince you that Hear improves the audio that comes from your Mac. That's where it gets a little complicated. So many controls make it more complex to produce better sound because there are so many possible settings and where your Mac is at that time, the settings may vary.
Still, there is no better way to bring expensive audio audio tools to a Mac. Just be prepared for some long sessions of trial and error.
