General

Breakaway Audio Enhancer dramatically improves the audio experience for all PC users with the same technology as pros in the music business use to clarify and control your computer audio. Breakaway Audio Enhancer provides complete audio control over music, videos, web browsers, and games. Screaming web ads impale speakers, Hulu videos require cranking the volume up, and every media player makes favorite CD’s sound different but Breakaway Audio Enhancer changes all that. Audio from any source sounds professionally mixed with the Audio Enhancer’s automatic adjustment of volume dynamics and equalization.

Breakaway Audio Enhancer incorporates state-of-the-art dynamics processors that examines and adjusts the audio thousands of times per second. Low levels are intelligently raised and loud signals are kept under control. Audio in any media player or web browser, including MP3s, video, Internet radio, or CDs, will be digitally remastered for consistent volume level and spectral balance. Files are not scanned or modified - just improved in real-time before they hit your headphones or speakers.

With Breakaway Audio Enhancer there is no longer a need to purchase separate audio enhancement plug-ins for each of your media players. Breakaway Audio Enhancer will improve the audio for all Windows audio & video players. It is the gatekeeper for good sound between any digital audio player and your speakers. Only sweet sounds get out.
