3D Surround Sound
The biggest and most impressive feature included in Boom 3D is its 3D Surround Sound technology. Long gone are the days of needing an extensive array of physical speakers or specially designed equipment, this lets you enjoy an immersive virtual surround sound experience on any headset. Boom 3D allows you to toggle individual virtual surround sound speakers on/off, adjust the bass level, and scale the intensity of the 3D Surround Sound effect.
Select Your Audio Output Device
Boom 3D allows you to select your audio output device from a list including system speakers, on ear, over ear, in canal, in ear, bluetooth, external speakers, and usb speakers, with images of each type that allow you to quickly identify your device. Selecting the correct audio output device helps Boom 3D optimize the output for your configuration.
Boom Volume & Controlled Boost
The Boom 3D Volume Controller is a volume booster for Mac, and buttons can be used to toggle Boom on/off, adjust the audio output volume, and toggle the Controlled Boost feature on/off.
Apps Volume Controller
Boom 3D lets you independently adjust specific application volumes, or mute them entirely. This can be used to eliminate distractions and interruptions like mail notifications, or to balance sounds between multiple applications at once.
Equalizer and Presets
The built-in equalizer presets in Boom 3D cover a wide range of music genres, as well as offering optimized configurations for vocals, movies, bass boost, treble boost, and more. You can easily change between presets depending on your current audio using the drop-down list, and even create your own custom equalizer presets by modifying an existing one and saving it under a new name. Boom 3D also includes a 31-band Advanced Equalizer option so you can fine tune your settings even further. The equalizer for Mac in Boom 3D makes any kind of audio sound even better.
Mini Audio Player
Boom 3D also includes a Mini Audio Player feature that allows you to drag and drop files of common audio formats to add them, or you can add them to the player using a Finder selection window. This is a great Mac music player if you want to quickly test out a preset or 3D Surround Sound configuration for a specific audio file.
There are a number of Audio Effects included in Boom 3D. These include:
Ambience - Feel sound moving all around you.
Fidelity - Can increase detail, crispness, and clarity of audio output.

You can also adjust individual application volumes and open the full application from the Quick Controls menu.
