|Product: Boom 3D for Mac
Founded in 2008 and a head Office in Udupi, Karnataka, India
GLobal Delight is developer of Photography, iOS, Apps, Software, Video, Mobile applications. Their latest application Globaldelight Boom 3D for Mac is discussed in this review.
The main Boom 3D interface is logical and well designed. The interface has not changed much to earlier versions like Boom 2D, but does have some advanced features added. The Presets are multiple, but the application does perform an ‘auto’ tuning at setup to calibrate your iMac’s integrated sound.
SETUP BOOM 3D
On installing, Globaldelight Boom 3D self-calibrates according to the type of Mac to offer the best sound experience to the users. After self-calibration, the application is ready to use. A Boom 3D Helper-menu is located at the top bar at the right, ready for choosing some basic actions.
USING BOOM 3D
Boom 3D is for some time one of the best audio enhancers on the market. Boom 3D acts as a system wide volume booster and equalizer. I personally use it default for my iMac. Boom3D is both a replacement for Boom2 and addition to Boom2 having 3D sound options which are not available in Boom2. So Boom3D is most likely to suit anybody looking for 3D sound experience. The interface of Boom3D is even slightly nicer then Boom2, which is great too. The in Boom2 ‘locked’ settings for Spatial, Night Mode and Pitch are all available in Boom3D. So no need to buy these unlock codes from Global Delight.
Your Mac sounds good or great depending on your personal taste and needs. Who wanted better sound had some options. Use a full external sound set or/and opt for an application taking your sound experience to another level. Your Macs iTunes offers you an equalizer and many pre-settings, but iTunes wont present a True new listening experience. Boom 3D does bring new sound and spatial acoustics made available to your Mac.
Switching Boom 3D on and off presents the difference in sound quality and experience one did not expect. Boom 3D is powered by Global Delight’s patent-pending Boom audio engine that presents 3D Surround Sound offering a true virtual surround audio experience on any headphones. In addition to the 3D headphone sound, the application also reveals that your Mac is capable of higher and better sound output then in its basic performance setup
Volume boosting is just one of Booms 3D qualities. It also offers full Control over your personal sound settings.
Boom 3D has 4 sound presets:
- Pitch option is not a setting used by most users I guess. Can’t see any real value in it for me personal.
The best way to show the full functionality of Boom 3D is this .mp4 file:
EXPERIENCE THE SOUND
I can write as long as I want, but I can’t make you hear the difference in sound. The only option available is to Download and enjoy Boom 3D. Just try it out and decide for yourself if its up to your standards or maybe even better.
Of course your best experience is with a headphone, I never wear headphones and for me the overall boost in audio quality of my iMac is most important. To judge Boom3D I of course used a headset for the ultimate sound experience. And although all music sounds best with a headset, the 3D setting absolutely opens a new sound dimension. It’s far more refined then the basic ‘spatial’ or ‘ambience’ setting. The well balanced open sound makes it easier to place instruments and opens up ‘depth and vocals’.
One other feature of Boom3D is to have your existing music library or single file imported in Boom3D and play without iTunes.
IS IT ANY GOOD & WORTH BUYING
Simple answer to this question. YES it is good and YES it is worth buying. Your Mac is great, but will sound even better. When Big Sur was launched Boom 3D crashed and an uninstall was needed. But I really missed the Boom 3D addition of my iMac, as the difference in sound is unquestionable present.
If you want to get the best or better sound and music experience from your Mac, Globaldelight Boom3D will do the trick ! Nothing is perfect in life, and our Mac’s are great but Boom3D makes it even better in day to day life. Wether you stream your audio, use headphones or simply use your Mac, your Mac sounds like it never did before. How does that sound for you? Try Download and enjoy Boom 3D. This is my recommendation to you all, but you decide if it fits your needs.
