Hajo's Headphone Enhancer is an affordable Mac app for music enhancement and virtual 5.1 surround listening.

Makes your Music sound amazing

Have you ever had this experience that you absolutely love a song in the club or on your home stereo system, but when you try to listen to it with headphones.. it sounds like shit?

Most music sold these days is designed for clubs or home stereo systems. That means the technician preparing your music is kind of expecting the music to travel through the air from your speakers into your ears. When you listen to that same music with headphones, the sound from the right earplug cannot reach your left ear, and vice versa. That is unnatural and causes confusion which most people describe as "it sounds broken" or "it feels as if my other ear just went deaf", for lack of better words.

My headphone enhancer software can simulate the acoustical effects that are caused by the sound-waves traversing the air and your head and your ear to ensure that your favorite track sounds on headphones just as amazing as it does on speakers.

Movies in 5.1 Surround on the Train

Did you notice that most movies that you can buy/rent on iTunes come with 5.1 surround sound? I think it would be pretty sad if you could only hear 2 out of those 6 audio channels, just because you happen to watch that movie while on the bus or train or anywhere else where you need to use headphones.

It's pretty obvious that most movies are meant to be watched in a cinema. That means that the clever people making these movies plan to use many different speakers in different corners of the room. When you're watching such a movie at home, that is OK because you can just buy 5 speakers and a subwoofer and set up your own home entertainment system with full surround sound. And as a result, most movies today are delivered to enthusiasts like you with 5.1 or 7.1 surround sound.

With regular headphones or laptop speakers, you'll only be able to hear Stereo, which means either left or right. That means making sound come from behind you is pretty much impossible.

My headphone enhancer software simulates the way that sound coming from different directions naturally reflects when it hits your ear cups. Since that always happens in real life, your brain has learned to estimate the direction of a sound from the arrangement of these reflections.

In other words, using crazy mathematics and psychological knowledge, I can trick your brain into believing that the sound is coming from whatever direction your movie director wanted it to come from. I know this sounds like snake oil, but I'm actually quite proud of how well that trickery works ^^

And should you not like it for whatever reason, it's dead-easy to remove my app again. Here's instructions in case you get stuck.

Free to try, dead-easy to install & remove

In case you didn't notice yet, I'm trying really hard to convince you to download my 100% free trial and try it out on your own Mac with your favorite pair of stereo headphones.

Why is that? Well, if you are like most people, then you probably cannot really imagine if "sound enhancement" or "virtual 5.1 surround" is your thing or not. But most people who try out my app really love the way their music sounds afterwards.

And should you not like it for whatever reason, it's dead-easy to remove my app again. Installation & Removal instructions
