Mac laptops look great, but they don’t always sound great. Their screens may have evolved from black and white monstrosities to mind-blowing retina displays, but their speakers still have the audio fidelity of a tin can.

But thanks to the magic of software engineering, you can now hear pristine surround sound audio directly through your built-in MacBook speakers. Volume booster and equalizer apps such as Boom 3D give you amazing system-wide surround sound that make you feel like you’re sitting in the middle of a movie theater.

Whether you’re using the stock presets or tweaking the 10-band and advanced equalizers, Boom 3D’s built-in audio player gives you complete control over your Mac’s audio. It’ll help you find the perfect sound for any situation. It even has special effects like audio distortion to give you that live amphitheater feeling.

Boom 3D normally costs $16.99, but you can get it from the Daily Dot Store for $9.99, a savings of 41%. Not bad for an app that’s rated 4.6 out of 5 on the App Store.
