iWOW – a iTunes plugin from SRS

July 19, 2007

iWOW is a plugin for iTunes on OS X. What an apt name for one of the best tools I have used in a while?

It is simply a iTunes plugin that promises to “expand the size of the audio image in the horizontal and vertical sound field and creating a deep, rich bass response”. And boy, does it deliver…

I am not an audiophile by any means, but I can definitely spot the expansivess of audio. I have always felt that iTunes kind of muffled the songs a bit on my laptop, be it through the built-in speakers or ear buds, and installing this plugin has validated my belief. You’ve got to listen to the music to really feel the difference this plugin brings.

The user interface could use some help though. When I first came across the plugin, I was turned off by the ugly interface. But I am glad I came back to try this plugin out. However, I do like the three buttons to change settings for laptop, external speakers or head phone.

SRS also has a similar plugin for Windows too. If you haven’t tried one of these, go ahead and give it a shot. I promise, you will be hooked.
