A Useful Tip: How to Boost Your Laptop Speakers.

    As a Mac user I wanted to share the best way I have found to boost volume on a Mac. Apple doesn’t have a good internal feature that allows you to boost the volume on your laptop, and unfortunately, most mac laptop speakers don’t put out a high level of volume. There are some programs (like iTunes, VLC Media Player, etc.) where you can go into the Equalizer and boost the sound beyond it’s normal volume, but this results in a good deal of distortion and also only works in those specific programs.

    The solution that I have found is to use an app called “Boom”. Boom is available from the Mac app store or online at “http://www.globaldelight.com/boom/”. It allows you to boost the volume on your mac across the entire operating system, and does so in a clean, easy-to-use interface. Additionally, it comes with a built in equalizer that allows you to minimize the distortion that comes from boosting your system’s sound. Since Apple capped the volume level on their speakers far below their maximum potential, you’ll find that Boom provides a great increase in the output of your speakers without causing much distortion.

    The app will cost you $3.95 on sale (as of right now) and $6.95 if you buy it when it’s not on sale, but it’s well worth the money. If you’re skeptical, you can try it for free for 6 days. Just be warned, as Boom tells you, Boom can be addictive. So once you’ve started the free trial, you may never be satisfied without Boom again.
