Here’s how you can enhance the audio quality of music in iTunes for PC or Mac without installing third-party plug-ins or software.

Enhance Audio In iTunes For A Truly Immersive Music Experience

iTunes for PC or Mac gets the job done in a wide variety of ways, despite users claiming that Apple’s music management software offers a half-baked experience when compared to other programs out there. We do agree to that notion to some extent, but you’ll be pleased to learn that there are things you can do to enhance the overall experience which iTunes has to offer at a stock level. Today, we’ll be focussing on the audio aspect of things, and show you how you can boost the sound credentials of iTunes by toggling on a simple option in Preferences.

1. Launch iTunes on your PC or Mac.

2. Now go to iTunes’ Preferences.

3. You’ll see a bunch of tabs at the top. Click on the one that says ‘Playback.’

4. See that ‘Sound Enhancer’ option? Turn it on, leaving the slider at the default, center position.

5. Now play a song using iTunes. You’ll notice that the audio quality now feels and sounds more spacious than before. If you think iTunes is overdoing its processing, then simply head over to the Playback option once again and move the slider towards the left until you get the optimal experience out of it.

While this option won’t turn your old headphones into a high-end pair of Audio Technica cans, but the point is that you can tune up the sound in iTunes in a dramatic way, giving yourself a truly immersive experience without having to jump ship or stumping out cash for better earphones. But of course, if you’re looking for more bass and low-end that would make a club go crazy, then you’ll be required to buy yourself a new pair of headphones or earphones. Before you do that though, do give Sound Enhancer feature in iTunes a mix. Who knows it might just strike a nerve with you.

We really wish iTunes gets a major boost this year, with a ton of focus on music controls and accessibility. In its current state, iTunes is a dire mess in a lot of ways, with many users complaining that their music library is a tough biscuit to navigate through.

Let’s just hope Apple delivers something groundbreaking at WWDC 2016. This menace has to stop once and for all.
