Does not give you much freedom to actually test the software unless you buy itSummaryI wanted a way to increase my laptop's speaker volume when I wasn't by my external speakers. I found this software and despite the numerous warnings in the DFX Audio Enhancer reviews here, I decided to give it a try. It honestly seemed to increase my speaker volume, at least there was a noticeable difference when it interrupted my movie playing on Netflix asking me to press "Ok" to continue using it or upgrade.
This software might be fantastic. It seemed that it did exactly what I was looking for. *However*, because almost every time I tried to adjust with the settings I was met with a, "This is a pro feature"-type popup window and because it wouldn't even let me finish watching a movie without taking over my screen and disabling itself to upsell me on the software, there is no way in the world I would ever purchase this.
I buy software and apps for my phones all the time. I am not buying this because it's crippled too severely to actually test and see if it'll be a good option for me plus the fact that there's too many upgrade requests. I fully understand wanting to be paid for work you create, I write programs myself. However, this is way too much and offering too little for some of us to actually be swayed into buying it.
It is a shame, it seems like it might be good software and something I would write about on my various sites to help other people. Please move to a full featured or nearly-fully-featured but time-limited version of this, or even let people keep using it after the x-day trial with the current trial limitations. Personally, I think the creators are hurting themselves by not letting people use the software more fully. It cost them a sale from me at the moment, but I'm definitely willing to revisit this later on to see if the trial limitations have changed. Like I said, I think it'd be useful for many people who have poor or low volume with their laptop speakers.Reply to this review Was this review helpful?

Basically, I'm in a tiny apartment, with paper thin walls. So headphones are a must, both so I don't bother the other tenants, and they don't bother me. What it comes down to is my computer and my television is my entertainment system and DFX gives me that big sound. I've created tons of preset templates for audio equalization to appease both sets of headphones for either different genres of music as well as different movie audio formats.ConsThey don't provide free updates. They keep plugging Max Recorder, which I have already purchased and upgraded as it's a great tool. I also wish they would find a way to recognize me as a customer so they wouldn't keep asking for my email address. Of course I can ignore both of these, but the point is, it is just unprofessional from a company that has a lot of audio technology and DFX Audio Enhancer is simply just a taste. The biggest con is it in not that friendly to get it setup properly in Windows 7. Once I got around all of the nuisance fixes, which I had to do mostly myself, it is incredible. I am not fond of software that is troublesome especially when I pay for it.SummaryA working version of DFX, and making sure that all of your audio and video programs are plugin compatible with DFX, such as Windows Media, Winamp, and VLC for examples, it really puts a lot of punch into your audio files. The trick is learning how to create user templates for different applications, and knowing how to get the best out of your preferences. Half the fun is tinkering. If you have malware, then you probably downloaded it from a third party site. If you don't know how to get rid of malware, then you shouldn't download anything. It's your choice to own a computer and use the internet. Yet is it also your responsibility to learn how to protect yourself and your computer. If you do, then in truth, you really don't have anything to complain about. Whining is only for the wont of ignorance. Think about it.Reply to this review Was this review helpful?

It will even TURN OFF the sound enhancement during some of these nags. In addition, what I mean by "Nags" are actually little pop-up windows(in addition to turning off the sound enhancement), which remind you that you are not using the full version and supplies two buttons that BOTH link to the DFX website. One goes direct to the purchase page, the other to the home page - to get rid of the pop-up(and turn the enhancement back on), you HAVE to close the pop-up window. Blindly quick-clicking the buttons just doesn't do it, because then you have the app opening your browser(or a new tab in one that is already open). I would NOT suggest using the free version during ANY sort of important or vital work, because of all the interruptions, and program window-switching that happens. In fact, I recommend NOT using this P.O.S. free-ware at ALL! The hassles and trouble are just not worth it.
You can not turn this on and sit down to listen to any audio file or track, because it WILL eventually turn itself OFF! Which forces you to stop whatever you are doing, focus on the idiot pop-up purchase reminder, and then attempt to return to whatever your previous task was - whether it was relaxing and enjoying music, or listening to something while working on your computer.
Unless you intend to purchase this app, AVOID it like a Trojan Virus - it is just a complete and TOTAL waste of your time!Reply to this review Was this review helpful?

Uninstalled within a few hours.SummaryAll it does is increases your volume a bit. But you can achieve this "volume boost" by enabling "Loudness Equalization" of your audio. Go to "Sound" from Control Panel, choose "Speakers", click "Properties", then in the "Enhancements" tab check "Loudness Equalization" and you will have the same sound effect (as far I can tell) as this stupid, constantly nagging software.Reply to this review Was this review helpful?

Seems user friendlyConsFree download extremely limited
Impossible to evaluate whether it's worth buyingSummaryI downloaded the free trial since it looked like something I could use and enjoy. Unfortunately, the free trial offered almost no features for evaluation that might make it worth buying. How can I know if a product is for me if I can't try it out? It's like taking a car for a test drive, and not being able to turn on the sound system, and being able to do the test only on smooth, level road in dry conditions.
In addition, within 20 minutes of trying the program, the pop-ups started reminding me it was a limited free trial. These reappeared every 10 minutes thereafter.
There was no way I was going to shell out the money to buy the program based on such an extremely limited trial run. I will say, when I wrote the company about my concerns, they responded promptly with a understandable explanation for the extremely limited trial. I offered my own suggestions on how to work around their concerns while offering potential consumers a better evaluation experience. They did not respond to that.
In the end, I think they're costing themselves a huge potential market by not allowing a good evaluation. I know I won't buy it based on what I was able to try. If you're willing to shell out your hard-earned $$ without knowing what you're getting, knock yourself out. Remember, Caveat emptor.Reply to this review Was this review helpful?

After disabling my firewall and antivirus several times it still wouldn't install. Even got ahold of their support (only took 2 tries) who gave me a link to the same page I'd been trying and of course it still didn't work.
Their old version used to work years ago when they were with Music Match, but since then it's been worthless.
Save yourself the trouble and wasted time and effort trying to get this to work. It didn't do a thing for me.SummaryNothing positive about it. Avoid and go with something else or better speakers.Reply to this review Was this review helpful?

1. Does not support multiple users on 1 PC, so when my wife logs onto her windows account, she has zero sound
2. Crashes spectacularly (over 100 dialog boxes) when I connect my bluetooth headset.
I have reported both issues to the developer, with no response. The first issue was reported over a year ago!!SummaryDont both, far to buggyReply to this review Was this review helpful? (1) (0) 1 stars"Absolutely Stupid"February 28, 2014 | By Spazydragon | Version: DFX Audio Enhancer 11.112 ProsDoes let you make the sound a little nicerCons"Reminds" you to buy the product constantly
Almost every feature is locked in the free version
That is including the minimize feature
Not worth 40 dollars by any meansSummaryI got the free version because, hey, it was free. I immediately regretted it because of just how terrible the program was.
Almost every feature that I wanted was locked. It kept bugging me about buying the full version. And even the MINIMIZE was locked unless you had full.
From the few features available, it is only really worth it to someone who has 40 dollars to (literally) burn.
The features (Anything locked is in the free version only, of course):
Ambiance Slider (Which seems to do absolutely nothing)
3D Surround Slider (Locked)
Dynamic Boost Slider
Headphone Setting (Locked)
Music Type I Preset
Music Type II Preset
Minimize (Which, for whatever reason, was locked)
Its also important to note that in the free version all sliders that were unlocked were limited to about 2/3rds of its full setting.
So, it is useless free and by no means worth 40 dollars. It does hardly anything more than the free version. If you do get it you are better off pirating it. But it sucks so bad that pirating it is by no means worth it.

Get out of here. You are so clearly a developer of this product.
Anyone reading this review, ignore it completely.
Updated on Feb 28, 2014
That last update was in response to a review clearly submitted by the developer. There is a 5 star review that says "Oh, there are no cons that I can think of." If you find it, ignore it.Reply to this review Was this review helpful? (1) (0) You are logged in as .
