If you’re traveling light but want big sound wherever you go, Boom 3D for Mac can help. This awesome app makes your Apple machine produce incredible surround sound without the need for external speakers, and it’s now just $10 (Orig. $17) at 9to5Toys Specials.

Most Macs sound pretty good in their own right, but Boom takes your audio to another level…literally. This highly-rated app is both a system-wide EQ and a volume booster with a built-in audio player. You can use your own custom settings, choose from a large selection of presets, or allow Boom to create the perfect sound profile for your device.

In addition to the basic EQ, Boom lets you turn up the volume without distortion, and add special effects. The surround sound option is great for movies and immersive playlists. You can also add ambience, or normalize the output for listening at night. Finally, Boom 3D lets you adjust the sound individually for each app.

Boom 3D is usually $17, but you can grab it now for $10.
