It’s a common joke to say that our Mac’s built-in speakers sound better than you’d expect. They actually don’t, but we do consume a lot of music on our Macs, and especially with Macbooks. Listening through built-in speakers or earpods can feel limiting as far as audio quality.

Boom 3D is an app that enhances the range of your Mac’s standard audio. It’s a system-wide volume booster and equalizer designed specifically for macOS. It’s also surprisingly good at squeezing fresh fidelity out of common Mac speakers and headphones. And right now Boom 3D is available for just $9.99 at Cult of Mac Deals.

Let’s be real, there’s only so much quality you can squeeze out of tiny speakers. But by modulating the sound in smart ways, it’s actually possible to add a surprising sense of depth to even the thinnest of soundwaves. Boom 3D uses a complex set of algorithms to do this, but presents the user with an intuitive set of toggle controls and presets. For the more adventurous or advanced listener, there are is also a 10-band equalizer dial in settings for specific situations. Add to that a set of audio effects and filters, and the fact that it’ll work with any app or media player, and suddenly this looks like a significant audio boost for very little cash.

Buy now: Pick up Boom 3D for $9.99, that’s a discount of 41 percent.
