Pretty damn annoying that one needs to purchase a code for EVERY USER on a single machine. We're stuck using one user account to listen to music because, right now, we don't think we should have to buy another one so my wife can use it. We share the mentality that software goes w/the machine, not the user necessarily. Coincidentally, almost every other developer agrees with us. I wouldn't have a problem paying 2x as much for this if I knew it was going to behave like this.

This software nags you with a dialog to call home even after activation. You get spammed by discount offers to upgrade every few days. I understand many developers in the apple ecosystem take advantage of the self serving nature thats common today, but these guys firmly have crossed the line.

I've been using Boom 3D on my Macbook Pros and Airs since it first came out. It's reliable, easy to adjust, and performs remarkably well. The Ambient and 3D settings are mind-blowing. I haven't experienced the problems others have with payments. Have I made two, one for each of my Macs? I don't think so. But even if I did, it would be worth $20 to get control over my audio, better than the native Apple controls.

Since I switched to the latest MacBook Pro Touch Bar the Boom 3D application is constantly crashing. Every time I need to use my AirPods for a call on Slack or FaceTime or any time I use my AirPods for any kind of call the app will just crash and even if I restart it just crashes straight away again. I really enjoy using the Boom 3D but they need to fix all of those bugs it is so frustrating using it when every time I need to make a call it crashes. And I do make a lot of calls using my MacBook Pro.

WORKAROUND for distorted System sounds: Recent versions of Boom 3D have introduced the potential for distorted system sounds such that, oddly, sounds start to play part-way through then play the start of the sound briefly thereafter. I nailed the problem down to the Boom 3D Setting "Sleep when idle". If you get this distortion, UNcheck that setting. The problem is gone. No other culprits were found to be involved in my system. If for some reason you find a need to use 'Sleep when idle', the workaround it to go to: -> System Preferences/Sound/Sound Effects/"Play sound effects through:" Choose in the popup menu "Internal Speakers". The distortion is gone. I've passed the problem source and workaround to the developer in order for them to be able to help users in the future. [The distortion problem had flummoxed them as well.]

I Too had to Give up on this app after a couple months like others have stated here. 1) Too many issues with out of Sync Audio & Video on YouTube... Had to constantly quit and relaunch to get audio in sync. Had to wait for update to fix this. 2) Compatibility issues and Latency Issues with Pro Video & Audio Editing Apps. You have to Quit out of it to resolve these. 3) Blows the crap out of Audio if you have HQ Music file such as FLAC or AIFF audio files. 4) Required constant adjustments to EQ if you have Audio from a wide variety of Sources & Quality. I found UnInstalling it and Not using preferable to all the issues with it running. 5) Finally, If you just use it with Average quality iTunes MP3s and AC3 files then it works well, but easier to just Use iTunes Custom EQ Settings than to flip back and forth with this thing and all its Quirks.

Note that many videos on YouTube already have out of sync audio & video! The main culprit was Microsoft Windows' flakey video recording/editing app and AVI format. That's one reason there were so many AVI repair tools. Until or unless Google addresses the problem, those bad videos will live on in infamy. Note that YouTube isn't the only place to suffer from bad AVI files. My US government made the blunder to standardize on AVI video as an archive standard back in 2010. (o_0)

I've been using Boom since it came out. I'm about to give up on it, though. The latest version, 1.2.7, crashes so many times a day it's absurd. Sometimes it completely kills all sound output from my MBP; only doing a restart restores sound output. There's a dialog box after the app crashes that supposedly submits a bug report to the developers. I've sent dozens of these, which include my name and email address and gotten no response. I contacted them directly through support on their website and got only a robo-response and nothing further.

I'm not sure if the bug is completely Boom's fault or if there's some bad juju with the app and Mojave 10.14.x, but I'm fed up with the crashing and the fact that the developers can't be bothered to respond to bug/crash reports.

I'd backgrade to the previous version if I could; had no problems with that version.

Otherwise, I generally have to leave it disabled. Save your money for the next big iteration of Boom 3D, folk, assuming they get the kinks worked out. And I'm not even speculating on the app's future path with Catalina..

Keep failing on my MacPro running High Sierra. Keep having to reinstall. Sound quality is greatly improved otherwise.
