As an audio buff, my Mac has more than my fair share of audio apps. From Amadeus Pro to Logic, and a dozen or so audio enhancing apps in between, the Mac is a great platform for audio.
How can you make your Mac’s audio sound better? Yes, as expected, there’s an app for that.
Hear is a Mac app that improves the audio quality of your Mac’s sound output in ways you never thought possible.
7 Ways Sound Sounds Better
Hear is not complex to use, thanks to presets, but the number of options can be overwhelming. But if you like to tweak sound output, Hear gives you controls.
The General settings tab gives you additional control over bass, ambience, fidelity and volume. Effects include 3D Surround sound, compressor/limiter, extended fidelity, and much more.
There’s a built-in equalizer so you can tweak your Mac’s sound output to match your acoustics.
The Mixer works with individual Mac apps so you can control volume the way it was meant to be controlled. Crank up iTunes music as loud as you want, but set Mail’s incoming email sound to a much lower level.
Hear is one of those apps you have to try first. Download the demo, install it, and tweak. If you’re on a MacBook with no external speakers, you will notice the effects and enhancements, but the better the speaker system, the more prominent Hear becomes (including good headphones).
