Boom 3D provides an award-winning app with pro-level features that enhance the audio experience.

As remarkable as Apple devices are, there is one feature that always seems to need a little help — the audio hardware and settings. I always end up adding external speakers to my workstation but when it comes to software assistance, I turn to Boom 3D from Global Delight.

About Boom 3D

Boom 3D is a system-wide volume booster and equalizer for Mac. It is an award-winning professional audio enhancement app that is designed to work with your system to create an unbelievably realistic and immersive listening experience. Boom has been available on macOS since 2011. Boom 3D was first released in 2017 for Mac and was introduced for Windows in 2018.

The prior version of Boom — Boom 2 — is still available and Boom 3D will not be taking its place. According to the developers, “The main differentiating factor between the apps would be 3D audio. However, the equalizer has a higher gain control in Boom 2 (20dB in Boom 2, as compared to 12dB in Boom 3D), it is more suited to anyone who would prefer more control on sound adjustment, over 3D audio.”

Boom 3D’s sound staging technology is run by a proprietary algorithm — written by Boom 3D’s software developers from the ground up. Some external vector libraries have been used to help minimize CPU usage since the computation of the 3D logic happens in real-time and tends to take up a lot o CPU power.

Boom 3D’s developer is Global Delight. The consultancy was started in 2007 and was founded on the southwest coast of India. Global Delight has developed entertainment apps in audio, video, and photo segment for desktop and mobile platforms (across macOS, iOS, Windows, Android, and HarmonyOS). In addition to Boom3D, they have created the award-winning Photo app and Camera Plus on iOS.
