iTunes Sound Check & Sound Enchancer

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hey guys,

 

I was wondering if using Sound Enchancer & th sound check is a good idea ?

I listen to music on my Macbook Pro , on my iPhone , with my Bowers & Wilkins P5 and on my Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin Air.

Do they work good ??

 

Hope you can help me ! :)

Sound Check will normalize the volume. So, it will prevent one song from being significantly louder than another song. It shouldn't affect the quality too much. Sound enhancer will add in a good bit of DSP processing which will color the sound in an attempt to restore some of the lost detail when it was converted to aac. You can listen to it and see what you like, I'd prefer not to use it personally. If I wanted that missing detail back I'd find a lossless version of the song.

 

The equipment you are using is expensive and sounds good. It's not designed for critical listening like a monitor would be. I'd say just enjoy what you've got and don't worry about it at all.

Great answer ! 

 

The sound enhancer really works for me and I really hope that there isn't any quality loss when I tick the Sound Check box ! :s 

 

Thanks for the help ^^

I don't use either one.  I figure the less processing the better.
