    As someone who's been around here for a long time, I can tell you this with absolute certainty:

     

    Apple never listens to anyone about anything. The only thing Apple listens to is the sound of pennies thrown at them. Not to the kids throwing the pennies mind you; only the sound of the pennies.

     

    And big bucks make no sound for them to hear at all.

     

    The sooner everyone realizes this the happier they will be continuing with Apple.

    Are you listening, Apple?

    I know that. But I would be very surprised if their marketing or product dev people don't browse these forums. I've already sent them my feedback on this issue.

    To K Childs

     

         Thank you!  Your response is respectful of the needs I expressed.  If you'r right, that there is no freeware solution to the problem of low sound output, I'll probably spring for the $7 app.  I'll give it a few days to see if anyone comes up with something.  I believe that during this conversaion, someone might have had time to write a simple app to increase volume - someone with skills I don't have.  But not many people are probably paying attention to this conversation.  Any way to get the word out to benevolent developers?

    Not really sure. I would try here maybe? https://developer.apple.com/devforums/

     

    I'd also encourage all who have this problem to let Apple know using the link kindly provided by Grant: http://www.apple.com/feedback/macbookpro.html. The more people scream, the more likely they are to listen.

    Thanks, KChilds

     

         I tried to make a request in the Developer's forum, but I would have had to lie and say that I am a developer, and that didn't feel right to me.  I did send in the suggestion to apple as recommended.

    I also sent feedback requesting an enhancement to the volume for my new Macbook.

    I have also found the sound on my Macpro totally pathetic. The laptop is sold as having  "inbuilt speakers" it is MISLEADING ADVERTISING to state this if Apple mean it is only for bong ping sounds! People generaly by the term " inbuilt Speakers" understand this to mean it has speakers like any other lap top on the market- that is it can play sounds at a reasonable audible levil! No one is expecting the speakers to be "profesional". All consumers want is to listen to a dvd or music or a moie at an audible level. The speakers in the Mac are totally pathic and Apple should be brought to task over this. its totally misleading- what is Apple trying to redefine the dictionary re what words mean! Speakers mean in the consumers mind that they have the ability to play at a reasonable level. If not Apple should try to sell the Macpro stating they have no internal speakers only bing bong sound makers, and see if they can sell them. That would more to the Truth. So what is the answer you want me to purchase a slimline mac and then to buy bulky external speakers! your kidding right. Hoiw about a bit of Honesty here Apple. Hey Apple  I can put you intouch with Soney they can help you make internal speakers for the Mac that can be heard.

    I would "Like" this post 100x if the discussion board allowed it!  You were polite and succinct, you clearly understood and restated the problem, and you highlighted the solutions you are aware of.  Great answer!!!

    well, its a 7day trial. I thought about it too but realized some powered plug in speakers would cost me at least $10 + batteries if theyre battery powered. Iv been using it for last night and today, awesome app that really does boost super low audio in videos and has a great EQ too.  You can even drop a file into it and boost an MP3 or something.  Definately worth the $7.  Try the trial and you will see.
