Boom is a volume enhancer, which boosts the sound volume on a Mac by up to 400 percent. The app places a volume slider on the menu bar as well as more detailed controls for manipulating sounds.
The equalizer is used for tweaking the sound to better match specific content, such as movies, music that should emphasize bass or vocals.
The Mac app has won plenty of accommodates, including a Best of Show at Macworld.
Boom should appeal to music or movie enthusiasts who use their MacBook frequently for entertainment. It also could replace carrying around external speakers when giving presentations or showing video.
One pretty neat feature is the ability to boost the audio of particular songs. You can drag and drop a song into Boom, which will automatically boost the song’s volume and then sync it to iTunes.
Boom has been submitted to the Mac App Store, however it is currently available directly from developers Global Delight on their home page for $4.99.
