If one thing is missing from my Macs, which is definitely generational, this is it. High sound. Sure, every Mac has speakers, and new Macs have better speakers than ever. If so, why is the sound so low?
Everything has to do with my aging baby boomers. No, I don't have a hearing aid, but my father does, so I know what's going on. I have family members who would chip in to buy me something to help my ears, but I found a better way. It's called Boom 3D.
Old Boom, New Boom
To be honest about it, I don't mind paying for software upgrades a few years, as long as I upgrade to something new, improved, better, or with useful features that can justify the price tag . Developers need to make money. I need something that is worth my money.
Boom 3D is a new version of Boom 2 that succeeded with the original Boom, and all versions have one thing in common. Loud. Or rather, higher sound from Mac's speakers. In this case, the latest, Boom 3D, also features enhancements in volume enhancement, smoothing and a pretty nice 3D surround sound that works better on headphones connected to the Mac than Mac's speakers.
It is one thing to just turn up the volume of the speakers or headphones, but there is something else to adjust the volume and frequencies in such a way that the listening experience is better than the general settings of Apple Available in System Settings> Audio Settings.
Boom 3D achieves the Boom experience with 3D Surround Sound, a built-in audio player, a full range of equalizer presets (but you can set your own), an intensity control, and a built-in audio player. in the application volume control so you can control the sound coming from any Mac app.
All that means you get audio customized for each app. The Skype sound should be different from Spotify or iTunes. Ditto for games. Video sound is not the same and should be tweaked accordingly.
Boom 3D is one of the Mac apps you have to try, so it's a 15-day free trial. Try it. If you can't tell the difference in the sound coming from your Mac's speakers or headphones, you save some money. If you feel concerned about age in your ears, Boom 3D can give you the extra volume you want, along with a few tweaks that are fully customizable for your home Mac and applications you use.
