Customer Reviews

Great app with a couple minor flaws.

FIrst, the good. I really love the minimalistic interface. It’s like, crazy pretty. And it’s super snappy because of its small memory footprint. And oh my god, the equalizer is incredible. I’ve had problems with iTunes’ equalizer clipping the music if I put the bass sliders up too high, but Vox’s EQ is crystal clear. It’s like seriously amazing.

Good things aside for a second, there’s a couple little niggling things that I don’t really like. For one, I can’t start shuffle of my entire library by starting one song in particular, like I could with iTunes. If I want to listen to a particular song, I need to either find it in the queue, or play it directly from the album, which only plays that album. Also, my computer’s media keys don’t work right away - you have to download a pref pane for them to start working. It’s really easy to do, but a really minor annoyance.

All things aside, this app is incredible, and I love the clarity of the sound (seriously, it’s like listening through a brand new pair of studio headphones), but the organization of music files leaves a lot to be desired.

FIRST WRITTEN REVIEW EVER

I have never written a review for a product—ever. Regardless of the medium. But I had to go on the record to say this app is the BEST app for listening to music on my mac EVER. I have fiddled with iTunes for god knows how long and have constantly hated how it has evolved over the years. In opening and using this app once, I was able to figure out how it works, how to load music into it, and also tweak the equalizer with absolute ease. It’s minimalistic, intuitive, and the quality of listening to FLAC audio is unmatched. This is what iTunes SHOULD BE.

It also has an amazing feature to link up to your soundcloud account and it can also load your iTunes library. And it was a SNAP. A few clicks and done! I haven’t felt this charmed by the ease of use since I first switched to the Mac platform. Great app..five stars.

Sounds awesome, love Audio Units & device management

I fell in love with this player. Apart from design, I like the way it sounds and handles Hi-Res audio. It can play every audio file I have without conversion.
The signal path is minimum, no "enhancers" behind the scenes, untill You specifically enable one.
Equalizer now sounds more natural and efficient than in legacy versions. New EQ presets are audiophile - wise.

It easily handles multiple external audio devices and sound cards (connecting/disconnecting, e t.c)
Now when Audio Units support is added, it became my player for pro audio uses.

All of my whishes that I expressed to developers are accounted for and sorted out in upcoming app versions. Support is incredible, and developers respond very kindly and positively.

Awaiting for full Pro Tools HD support!

Great app!
