Letasoft Sound Booster could not have a more descriptive name as all this tool does is raise the sound volume of your system. In fact, it is said that it can increase it up to five times its maximum normal level. This comes in very handy when we can hardly hear a word in a specific movie or your favorite game’s sound effects are hardly perceptible.
The program is extremely easy to use: it can be set to start along with the system and remain available at the System Tray from where you can move the volume slider to the desired boost percentage. In addition, it supports using hotkeys for this same operation and, fortunately, these can be customized to your preferences.
However, so much simplicity takes its toll, which means that you cannot adjust the sound volume for specific programs. So, depending on the level of the source, it is likely that you will need to readjust the volume quite frequently. Another drawback is that pushing your speakers to the limits may damage them or affect the quality of the sound output.
All in all, although there is not much to say about this tool, its usefulness cannot be denied. It is both straightforward and effective. The product is shareware, and it will work without any restrictions for the first 14 days after its installation.
