Customer Reviews

I wanted to love this app

I use BBE in my studio and live. The sound quality of this app can be wonderful. It can take a dull tune and add great presence and low end. However one must be careful since in some genres, you can lose vocals and horns completely. The mid adjustments don't seem to get them back.

I have found that the app integrates well with my music but hate that everything I jump in my car, it seems to have lost its place in the song or on the album. I did not have that problem on the apple music player. If these two items could be addressed, I would only use this app as my music player and would give it 5 stars. But for now I am going back to the apple music app and adjusting frequencies on my radio to enhance my music.

Sonic Greatness

I am very picky about sound and as we all know iOS devices aren't exactly audiophile grade. BBE makes a sonic maximizer that I use with live sound production and it's amazing, so I tried this app for my iTunes downloads, and WOW! If you spend a few mins understanding the settings, you can dial in killer sound.

The only reason I did not give it 5 stars is because it sometimes crashes for no discernible reason and occasionally has a hard time connecting to my truck audio system via USB.

Works for me

I have used this app to make lame systems sound amazing. That alone is worth the small price of this app. I am a long time user of BBE products and I have never been disappointed. This one is no different.

It has a number of dials of which you probably only need to touch a couple of them. The presets are very useful and you need to sit back and let your ears adjust before you start to tweak anything further.

The only suggestion I would make for this app is that maybe it could have a "simple" interface in addition to the detailed interface (i.e., just a couple of knobs versus the bunch). That would help novice users dial in the sound the are looking for (improvement) more quickly without being overwhelmed by all of the other knobs that need to be investigated.

All-in-all, a great app.
