Ratings and Reviews
Truly is very bad.
I have a pair of Sennheiser’s IE 80 S headphones that had this app referenced on the box. I downloaded I thinking that it would be useful for playing around with the sound signature of my headphones, however, the app is pretty much useless. As someone who uses Apple Music to stream music, and almost nothing else, I can’t use it as ALL of the songs are DRM protected. I also cannot afford TIDAL, so I’m pretty much dead in the water. I simply wish that either Apple or Sennheiser would get up with the times and realize that this app simply isn’t viable in an environment that relies so heavily on streaming and internet content. I’m not one to force innovation, but you would think with a service like Apple Music that plays back lossless audio in real time using steaming that they would understand the massive drawback of not supporting this highly prevalent feature.
I do greatly appreciate the addition of a parametric equalizer to Tidal. A big win. But this app is tricky to use which can be quite frustrating for newbies.
One obvious bug: after I added it, my Tidal account name has a spurious %40 added before the @ sign that can’t be removed even if you edit it. This does no harm but it’s confusing.
The app UI requires a lot of trial and error to learn. Strangely, the dynamic EQ waveform shown during playback is close to invisible in all 3 color schemes. The blue is prettiest, but introduces poor contrast, making it too unclear for everyday use.
Worst, the app’s UI makes it very hard to navigate once you’re inside Tidal, except by text search. I suspect that’s partly due to Tidal’s poor UI, but this app makes their bad UI even worse.
Is this app worth getting? YES, if you want an EQ for Tidal. And I do, very much. Thanks.
I really like my PXC-550 headphones, but this app is a joke. Limiting it to work with only local files or Tidal is effectively pointless for the vast majority of users. On top of that, it's very buggy and I found myself having to restart the app to get around the UI bugs.
It does allow you to change a few settings on the headphones, so it's not entirely useless. It would be nice to support headphone firmware updates, but it doesn't seem to allow that either.
Sennheiser makes great gear, but they should be ashamed of this junk app.
The worst thing about this meager app is that it takes forever to detect my headphones. The mobile apps for my various other wireless headphones from Bose, JBL, Parrot and various others detect their respective headphone almost instantly, whereas Captune takes 15 to 20 seconds to detect the PXC550. To boot, all the other apps have much better EQ options that can be used with any music source.
This app is garbage and it’s too bad because the PXC550 is otherwise great.
