Frequently asked

Who is FxSound for?

Whether you want a volume booster, bass booster, better sound quality, or an easy-to-use Windows EQ, we've got you covered.

Our users are budget audiophiles, music lovers, gamers, transcriptionists, Netflix bingers, and more. Especially if you're using quiet laptop speakers or other low quality audio hardware, FxSound is the best free software to boost volume, bass, and sound quality. And no free EQ for Windows is easier to use than FxSound.

Why is FxSound free and how do you guys make money?

For over 20 years we've been selling FxSound (we used to call it DFX Audio Enhancer) for unrestricted access to our sound boosting software.

But we've recently decided to make FxSound 100% free. Why? Because our mission is to make high quality audio accessible to all, not just those who can afford our software or expensive speakers and sound systems.

And we can do this only with your help. FxSound is now entirely supported by our users. Click here to donate to help fund continued development and improvements to FxSound.

How does FxSound work?

Home stereo systems and PC’s are built with a compromise: keep hardware affordable at the cost of quality.

FxSound compensates for low quality hardware by targeting and processing sound’s timbre, volume, spatial balance, and dynamics.

What this means for you is clearer, louder, deeper, and balanced audio. Install our lightweight program, let it run quietly in the background, and enjoy your new audio experience.

Learn more about how FxSound works.

What if I already have high quality headphones or speakers?

FxSound is built for all hardware. From budget to audiophile.

High quality gear won't need as much compensation. But just like our ears, no two headphones are made alike. Use our EQ, audio routing, and volume control to dial in a precise and personalized sound. Get the most out of your equipment.

How does FxSound boost volume?

FxSound is built to provide a dynamic yet controlled increase in volume. We prevent harmful peaking to make listening less fatiguing. Along with our equalized boost means you can increase your volume without distortion. (Unlike some other volume boosters out there).

How does FxSound boost bass?

Our equalizer and Bass effect give you more punch, clarity, and depth in the low end of your audio. And who doesn't like more bass?

How does FxSound improve sound quality for music?

Your music files, even ones labeled as "high quality", have some compromises. Some of the original data is removed to make the file a more manageable size. When you stream your music, even more 1's and 0's are cut out to make it fast to deliver. As such, your favorite songs become flat, dull, and lifeless.

This is where FxSound comes in. FxSound helps by giving you the highest possible audio passthrough and output. Then, with targeted EQ, you can bring up those compressed areas and return your music to its proper form.

How does FxSound help with transcription?

You need to transcribe quickly and accurately. You need to protect your ears so you don't end up with hearing loss. And you need high quality, clear audio files to do that.

Unfortunately, not all clients are created equal, and you end up having to work though some horrendous audio. It makes it difficult to understand and transcribe, and turning up your volume to make out what's being said will damage your ears over time.

FxSound can fix all these problems. FxSound targets the frequency range of the human voice and cuts out the noise. It then boosts the volume of voices by almost double the amplitude. This allows you to hear perfectly at much lower volumes. Let us help you breeze through even the worst courtroom camcorder MP3s.

How does FxSound help with gaming?

Video games are one of the most acoustically rich, audio-saturated situations you'll encounter. Music, sound effects, ambient sounds, spatial processing, audio cues, warnings, indicators, and dialogue all crowd into your headphones or speakers. Unless you're dropping serious coin on a hi-fi gaming setup, you'll lose detail and miss important sounds. And if you're lucky enough to have that high-end gear, you can't always dial in global settings to fit your hearing profile.

FxSound will pass your game's audio through at a higher bitrate than almost any other digital soundcard. With EQ and effects, you can apply a smoother, richer, more clear experience to your favorite games. When looking to get that edge (and finally joining your high ELO friends), give FxSound a shot.

Why do I need to customize my audio settings?

Without equalization, audio can be hard to understand and lack the intended depth and emotion.

With FxSound's EQ, Effects and Presets, you get perfect audio for listening to music, making Zoom calls with friends, transcribing audio and much, much more.

And don't worry, FxSound makes it easy, so you get professional sound processing without the complexity.

Does FxSound work on other devices besides Windows PCs?

For now we are only compatible with Windows desktop PCs. However, with your support we can develop FxSound for Mac, Chrome, and mobile.

Donate today to get FxSound on Mac, Chrome, and mobile.

(FYI... FxSound on mobile is a bit tricky since Android and Apple do not allow us to do system-wide processing on their devices. This means we'd have to develop our own music players that can play your downloaded files as well as import your music from your favorite music streaming services.)
