The Best - Boom2 is really the best equalizer & sound enhancement for all media on my Macbook Pro. I’ve had it for a few years now, and it is the only app I have consistently start up automatically at login. It improves the sound quality and output of both the intenal and external speakers, and headphones. I can balance different sorts of music to just my optimum tastes, and it’s indispensible for movies and video where sound effects or music tend to muffle spoken dialog- I can keep the actors' voices to the fore. I have not experienced any software conflicts with it, and for all its power and responsiveness, it is a light consumer of systems resources. I can truthfully say it is the one app that has improved my Mac experience overall. Apple should be grateful that a 3rd party app has done them such a good turn.
a nightmare, warning - wow, no one monitors this stuff or looks under the hood. Sure, it will work off the bat, but if your planning on doing anything else with your computers sound, you screwed up. I have found more issues with this than most software, and everyone looks the other way just because it sounds better. Be warned, its full of bugs and your better off getting awsome speakers or using some other method than messing up your operating system. I am a tec and have used this program extensively and have found it to be not worth the money or headache. Granted, the sound system on your hardware is poor from the manufacturing and design, but there has to be a better way! Warning……I have found that other speakers, of any nature, bluetooth, usb bowers and wilkins, will not work properly with this sound software. You will have to totally reinstall you OS to get it out. Clean my mac can not even get out all of the crap that this software leaves after uninstall. It is not clean, it is not bug proof, it is not worth it at all in the long run.

Holy grail of EQ's !!! - I got a pair of sennheiser headphones plugged into my macbook and thought that I was missing a couple frequencies and tones. Downloaded the app and The level of fidelity and truth to the sounds... words cannot describe. I then decided to plug in my pioneer DM40 studio monitors which I use for my personal computer opposed to my actual studio level monitros and the difference this EQ makes is unheard of. Its like an Eargasm!!!! Its all in the details... This coming from someone who has been Djing at clubs and mobile djing for years and heard probably some of the best sounding rooms venues and speakers. Dont sleep on this app. Its worth every penny.
I’m Spoiled! - It is 6 October, 2017. Alexandre Desplat’s “The Luzhin Defence” was playing through my Mac speakers…without Boom enabled. I knew something was amiss – so I engaged the program and now I’m hearing previously hidden textures in the mix. Boom 2 is a bit more complex than its predecessor; but once you get the hang of it, it’s an easy go. A very large “thank you” to the developers of this app! Two thumbs up for Boom 2!
Doesn’t play nice with Bose QC35 - Overall I used to love Boom, but then I bought a pair of QC35 headphones, and the sound becomes horribly distorted every time I run Boom while using them.
Will not work with... - It’s a nice EQ. But if you want to use it with external speakers through a USB audio interface, just don’t. I have a Behringer U-Phoria UMC 404HD and JBL monitors. It works, sounds great, and then something mysterious occurs and all output is silenced. I can select the internal speakers in system preferences and get sound again (with the application running), then re-select the USB interface and nothing. You have to run a script in Terminal to uninstall the program, which is a little peculiar for Mac, but no big deal. But here’s the rub: *My system still had no output through the audio interface, even after uninstalling the program and restarting the computer.* What the heck is going on? I screwed with it for a couple hours, plugged in a guitar: inputs & monitors, no prob, but still nothing from the computer. Finally I unplugged everything, thinking Boom2 had somehow destroyed my system. I let it sit for a week, plugged it in, and magically everything was back to normal. (Without Boom2) No idea how it magically fixed itself, I wanted to make sure that Boom2 that was indeed the cuplrit, so I reinstalled the application. As before, no problem with the internal speakers. I switched to the monitors / interface, and it worked fine. For a while. (Maybe an hour?) Then some fuzz and distortion (I forgot to mention that above) and all output ceased. I uninstalled again. No sound. Restarted. No sound. Unplugged the interface for an hour. No sound. Unplugged the interface for a week. Everything back to normal. I have no idea what this program is doing to my computer, but certainly don’t want to pay for it.
Horrible Interface - Installation damaged my MacBook hard drive, preventing the device from sending sound through desktop speakers. After 1 day trouble shooting by phone with Apple, it was determined the Boom 2 app caused the problem. Sound settings now allow only headphones. I’ve been waiting for technical support from Boom 2 to contact me for several days. Nothing. Don’t waste your money on this SCAM.
