I've been Maximized! ...updated review
Just got the update but It seems pretty much the same as before but that's a good thing to me! I didn't have any problems with the last version. Anyway, I look forward to whatever BBE comes up with next. Below is my original review. I wouldn't change a word. Love this app! I'm a mobile DJ and I use a BBE 382 Sonic Maximizer in my gigs. I'm a BBE fan because my rack mount BBE Maximizer makes a huge improvement and my clients always compliment me on my sound. I was a little skeptical that this app could deliver such a big improvement on my iPad but the SonicMax absolutely rocks! Listen, I know exactly what my tracks sound like with BBE and this app nails the sound. Great clarity and detail on the top end and clean punch on the low end. I can't believe I'm getting sound this good straight out of my iPad. Thanks BBE! - Trackmaster J

Fixed in Version 1.0.1
Although it meets the hardware requirement, the app will not load on my 3GS (and I see from other reviews that I'm not alone.) After trying the common troubleshooting steps (restarting the phone, reinstalling the app, etc) I tried contacting the vendor support and got no response. Hopefully they will get the issues worked out, but until then, one star. UPDATE: - With version 1.0.1 the developers have fixed the loading problem that I experienced. Now that I can use the app, I'm impressed. I use Klipsch Image 4Si earbuds (which are a HUGE improvement over the Apple buds), and with the Sonic Max app the improvement is even more pronounced. I've always felt the EQ built in to iTunes was worthless - this finally gives some control over EQ on the iPhone. I'm changing my one star to four - well worth the $4.99.

I was really excited to try this out when I heard it was available and I'm not really all that impressed. I've been using Equalizer for quite a while, and more recently EQu in which both apps are amazing at tweaking music to your liking. Using my IEM's with this app I'm pretty underwhelmed at the sound and I feel kind of ripped off at $5. Plus all of the other letdowns such as: no gapless; tiny, round cover art; auto-plays music when selecting an artist/album/track instead of allowing you to browse; no queueing system; no albums listed under artist; and one out of five tracks has a read error - all really ruin this app for me. Granted these can all be added with software updates and I will update as they come out but as it is this app is pretty much useless to me when there are IMO better alternatives. And I think the reviewer who mentioned that when you turn off the enhancements it sounds worse than the stock sound is on to something. A couple things I'm impressed with though are the GUI is really nice and the app is very stable.

Good but fatigues
Improves sounds quality for lower grade earbuds or dock but as with the plugin, overdo it and it gets difficult to listen to after a while. Great improvement for my car system (infiniti factory Bose) but glitchy when controlled through the stereo (plugged/not headphone out).

Highly Impressed
After using BBE equipment in the studio for decades, I had my little doubts this app could reproduce the sounds I've been accustomed to, with their outboard gear. After a few bars of audiophile music tracks, I'm sold. Plus the ability to pick earbuds, headphones, speakers, etc as an output, is an unexpected pleasure.

I wish I would have bought this before the mytunes app, this has worked perfectly, the sound is just a tad lesser Than the SRS app but still good enough, and no skipping at all
