Is there any way I can give negative stars? I loved iWOW, but Audio Essentials has been a headache from the moment I installed it. I got one reply from DTS then they stopped even that. PATHETIC on all levels.

DTS has now killed not only the great iWow, but also the half-assed Audio Essentials. Forget about it.

I'd used SRS iWoW and loved it. So, when SRS came out with Audio Essentials, I didn't hesitate to purchase it. Now, at some point, SRS was purchased by DTS. Audio Essentials is a BIG waste of money. If you manage to get it to accept the key, the sound is outstanding. However, it relies on SoundFlower software ( a beta version was uploaded in 2012). Among the most annoying problems is that Audio Essentials won't hold its key. Anytime I closed the app or restarted my Mac, I would be required to reenter the software key. Also, there are a lot of random conflicts between the Mac's sound software and SoundFlower. DTS has proven itself as the supreme loser in customer support. When I started having problems, I sent an email to their "customer support" email address. I listed the problems and said I thought it was only fair to give them a shot of correcting the problem before I started shouting my experience with their software all over the internet. I was shocked and overjoyed when I received a reply the same day suggesting there may be an error with the key. They asked I send them the key and they'd check it.... tick tok.... tick tok... Months went by and no word from DTS. I sent another email asking about the status..... [cue crickets chirping in the background]. I've since deleted what's now called DTS Audio Essentials from my Mac and reverted back to SRS iWow (I think DTS discontinued iWow -- probably because it worked as advertised).

I used the preview SRS iWOW and then moved to Audio Essentials after it apparently replaced iWOW. The interface is a bit clunky, looking as if it was written without following any of the Apple app style guidelines and, worse, Flash (even though it's not Flash). The sound quality is quite good and the adjustments are rather on-target for music, movies, and spoken word. Unfortunately, OS X Mavericks seems to be a challenge for the software: AE can handle a simple audio stream but is susceptible to static when the CPU climbs for any reason; it also has a very difficult time working properly (as of this review) with the latest version of VLC player. It definitely needs work and the new owner, DTS, ought to release a compatible version with Mavericks, especially considering the price.

9% CPU usage of AudioEssentials switched off (sloppy code!!!), 14% switched on but no processing (no audio signal) and also 14% during processing. Please work on your code guys - beside this, Audio Essentials is still the best audio enhancer for MacBooks out there - only a bit pricy. Wait for a mac-bundle. Used SRS WOW with iTunes for years and did wait desperately for a system-wide version.

I did buy this because I think SRS makes the best audio improving add-on sound wise, but is this company still open? I bought this. They sent me the code. I tried to activate it and its server is down. So it gives you the option to email asking for a manual request/response deal that so many other companies use. The problem is they don't write back. I checked my junk filter file in Apple Mail and then the Spam filter Gmail sets up. No response. I've written them asking if they plan to reply, again no reply. Frustrating. I'll wait a few more days before I call my credit card to wipe out the charges. Its a shame cause its the best app of its kind.

The "demo" does not let me tinker with any of the advanced settings. Without being able to try those, this program gives me garbage for sound. Why are they calling that a "demo?" It doesn't do anything. Pointless.

Had iWOW on my MacPro using iTunes. Worked fine. Downloaded trial of SRS Audio Essentials and it sounded muddy and not as clear. So, tried to drag it to trash to delete w/ AppZapper AND deleted Soundflower (which you must use to use Audio Essentials). Restarted. Now, back to iTunes but can't seem to load iWOW by SRS which is older and worked just fine. Seem to be a sucker for early use then I get burned. This company makes great products, just didn't seem to get it to work for me.
