Boom 2 v1.1: New Equalizer Presets And App Refinements!

February 25th, 2015

Boom 1.1 is now out!

In keeping with our policy of regularly updating Boom 2, we’ve come out with version 1.1 that further streamlines the whole experience. The new release brings forth several additions and improvements like two new equalizer presets, a fix for the random audio muting issue when Boom 2 isn’t in use, audio improvements in the equalizer department and other changes that should keep you Boomin’ all day long!

Starting things off, we’ve introduced new equalizer presets for you guys to enjoy. Presenting ‘House’ and ‘60’s’, two presets that will get you tapping your feet in no time. Hit these to get your music sounding groovier than ever and you’ll forget about using external speakers ;-) .

Another important aspect of this release is that we’ve now squashed that annoying bug where your Mac’s audio kept getting muted even when Boom 2 wasn’t running. We had addressed this in a separate post not a couple of weeks ago wherein we said that this wasn’t due to the app itself. This is something that OS X Yosemite brought to the table and there was nothing we could do about it at that point in time. In this update however, we’ve added an option under the settings tab that takes care of this problem. You can now enjoy plugging in and out your external audio devices without that annoying audio black out!

Moving forward, we’ve also improved certain finer aspects with respect to ‘Fidelity’ and a few other equalizer presets. Even those who’ve been facing problems using Boom 2 via their HDMI connections should see a marked improvement. Rounding off this update, we’ve made minor changes to the UI and resolved several other bugs.


What’s new in Boom 2 v1.1:

-  Two new Presets – House and 60s’

-  ‘Audio mute’ issues when Boom 2 isn’t in use has been fixed

- Dynamic equalization for ‘Fidelity’

- Equalizer Bass reduction for MacBook systems with regards to internal speakers

- HDMI improvements.


We’ve made sure that version 1.1 of Boom 2 eliminates several issues that you’ve been having. We shall continue to test the app for quality and rest assured, you will always receive only the best from us. If you haven’t experienced the magic of Boom 2 yet, do check out the free and no-commitment trial.

Boom Isn’t The Reason Your Mac’s Audio Is Mute!

February 4th, 2015



We’ve received a lot of feedback from users of Boom 2 regarding the automatic switching of audio devices under sound output. The concern being brought up is that on connecting another device to listen to audio, there are frequent occasions where the audio blacks out and nothing can be heard. At this point, we thought we’d take the time out and explain what’s actually going on behind the scenes.

The issue here is that Yosemite has changed the way sound output logic is fundamentally dealt with. Previous iterations of Mac OS X worked well in this regard. In the latest operating system however, when an external speaker, device or headphone is connected, the output automatically switches to some other device. In some cases, the output that gets selected is incorrect. This is especially prevalent when there are multiple sound output options installed.

On installing Boom or Boom 2, a new sound output option called ‘Boom Device/Boom 2 Device’ is added and it is through this that you get enhanced and boosted sound. There is no problem when listening to audio when Boom/Boom 2 is running. But when an external device is plugged in or removed when Boom/Boom 2 isn’t running, the OS doesn’t necessarily revert back to the internal speakers and instead. In an ideal situation, it would immediately switch back to the correct device and normal audio service would resume.

This is a small example of audio output selection in Yosemite (With Boom/Boom 2 OFF):

This is how it looks when playing audio through the default Mac speakers

On plugging in headphones, the selection jumps to Boom2Device instead of staying put.


A lot of users have incorrectly identified Boom 2 as the issue and so we wanted to point out to the actual issue at hand. We’ve raised a ticket to Apple as this has put a lot of users like you at an inconvenience. We wish there was something we could do to resolve this from our end. Hopefully, this will be taken care off in the near future!

If you’d like to talk to us, we’re available on Facebook and Twitter. For more details on Boom 2, do visit our site. Have a good day!

* Update 1 *

With the release of the latest Yosemite 10.10.2, we’re actively looking into the issues caused with respect to the audio switching. We’re working with this release on a high priority and will update you as and when we come out with a breakthrough.

Boom has always stood for audio that surrounds your senses with notes that elevate your listening experience. Whether it’s that flimsy audio file that was inaudible from a meter apart, or the Spotify track that never impressed, you’ve always been covered.

Whether it was its volume boosting capabilities or the novelty factor that was associated with it, it was on a mega roll! Everyone was reassured by the fact that TechCrunch, Macworld and the like were unequivocal in their praise for the number one app that enhanced the audio of millions of Mac users worldwide. Not to be outdone with the success, we’ve refined and transformed the app’s functionality over the years and it doesn’t stop there.

Boom is poised for great things from here on (pardon our lofty expectations!). Boom 2, released last month, has already set the benchmark for audio from Macs and it only goes upwards from here, We aren’t going to go into the details about its past, future or present, but you can be assured that Boom 2 is going to come out with some real top of the shelf features. Sit back, relax and buckle up so that the good times roll as Boom has already undertaken its journey towards audio greatness (please don’t lampoon us with respect to this L).
