Although the truth is that your MacBook or iMac is only ever going to sound as good as its speakers and headphones allow, there are lots of things that you can do to improve the sound quality of your machine and get more from your computer.

One of those solutions is Boom3D Desktop, an award-winning pro audio enhancement app that allows you to play your media content – from movies to Apple Music releases – with incredible 3D effects on ANY headphones, from any player, any media, or streaming services.

The app has attracted a great deal of attention in recent months, and it’s clear to see why.

Below, we offer an introduction – and share our thoughts on the software.

It can be so tempting to pay hundreds or even thousands of dollars for quality headphones from makers like Bose and even Apple (with its premium Apple AirPods Max), but the truth is that software like Boom3D could do most of the legwork for you. Its app, available on Windows and macOS, is designed to help redefine your movie, listening, and gaming experiences, helping immerse you deeper into new worlds and musical escapades.

Perhaps one of the most exciting features is 3D Surround, allowing users to experience movies, games, and music with 3D Surround technology, offering virtual surround sound without any special headphones or expensive surround sound boosters. Similar to Apple’s recently-announced Spatial Audio feature, Boom3D allows you to experience the same level of quality audio and interaction no matter what you’re listening to.

Equalizer Presets, on the other hand, allows you to precisely tune your listening experience, with a large range of presets available that have been handcrafted to match different genres, like gaming, rock music, and heavy metal. Boom 3D for Mac also includes a system-wide volume booster which safely increases the volume beyond its regular limits on macOS, meaning you can enjoy more intense, richer audio experiences on your devices.

Another feature that’s exclusive to the Mac is an Apps Volume Controller, so you can control exactly how loud (or quiet) a particular app performs. A state-of-the-art audio player is also included as standard, so you can play songs with unbeatable Boom effects, or create your own playlists.

What’s more, Boom users can enjoy access to more than 20,000 local and international radio stations from within the app – offering the same high-quality listening experience. You’ll be spoiled for choice and you’ll never have to work in silence again – with so many stations, Boom 3D has you covered.

It’s easy to see why Boom 3D has received a number of prestigious awards – from the Macworld Best of Show 2014 through to the 2021 Software Informer award, and even a spotlight on the Apple Mac App Store. It’s available to try for free for 30-days, and the company is currently running a flash sale, where you can enjoy a significant discount off of a license, so there’s never been a better time to give it a go.
