One single USB cable delivers power and sound. Custom software blends the music coming from your built-in MacBook speakers with extra bass. The result is dramatically improved MacBook sound performance.
Your MacBook Air has never sounded better.
BassJump makes the great sounding MacBook Pro even better. But the sound improvement BassJump adds to MacBook Air is truly mind-blowing. Create a hotel room sound-system, boost your next Keynote soundtrack or create a movie theater right in your bed with your MacBook and BassJump. At the office, it’s an elegant, simple way to improve the sound of your MacBook without cluttering up your workspace with clunky replacement speakers and cables.
Custom software you can see and hear - now redesigned and updated for El Capitan.
The BassJump 3.0 Software Update combines audio coming from your MacBook speakers with the low frequency bass coming from the BassJump subwoofer. By blending the two audio sources, you hear a dramatically richer, fuller sound. Apple Music will sound better, and so will your favorite games. And wait till you see the redesigned BassJump preferences window. A modern VU meter adds a bonus visual experience to your sweeter sound. There’s even a cool little VU meter in the preferences bar. The BassJump preferences window also lets you customize the sound to suit your style of music: rock, pop, R&B, etc.
Essential World Tour road gear.
Since its debut, BassJump has been a hit with professional touring musicians because it lets them monitor audio directly from their MacBook speakers - while giving their headphones (and ears) a rest. Rock-and-roll road warriors also appreciate that extra power supplies, international adapters or batteries are not required. BassJump works with most pro audio software, including Apple’s Logic Studio, making it an essential road tool for listening to and editing tracks on the tour bus, hotel room or anyplace else your music takes you.

BassJump 2 FAQs
- How does BassJump improve my MacBooks sound?
BassJump improves MacBook's own sound by becoming the woofer/subwoofer for your MacBook. Your MacBook speakers then function as stereo tweeters. This is often called a 2.1 sound system. This combined sonic performance sounds tremendously better than your MacBook speakers alone. You will be blown away by just how good your MacBook speakers can sound - with just a little low-end help from BassJump.
- Is BassJump compatible with the 12-inch MacBook?
Yes, BassJump is perfect for listening to music on the go with your 12-inch MacBook. Since the 2015 MacBook has only has one USB-C port, use the Apple USB-C to USB Adapter or the USB-C Digital AV Multiport Adapter, to connect BassJump to your MacBook.
- Can you combine two or more BassJumps for double the bass?
Not at this time. Currently, the BassJump software will only address one BassJump at a time.
- Is the BassJump Software necessary for the BassJump to work?
Yes. The BassJump software is what enables the BassJump sound output to mix with the onboard speakers in your MacBook. It also allows you to tweak the Crossover Frequency and BassJump Volume relative to the overall MacBook volume level.
- What does BassJump sound like?
BassJump mixes with the sound already coming from your MacBook speakers to create a fuller, richer audio experience from the speakers you already have. It's like going from the sound of a hand held AM radio to a full hi-fi sound system - using your existing MacBook speakers. BassJump just helps them sound better.
- Is BassJump compatible with other third-party sound enhancing software?
Unfortunately the BassJump Sound System software can not be used simultaneously with other sound enhancing software (like Boom for Mac). Since these other sound enhancing apps are performing similar functions, there may be some software interaction issues that may cause BassJump to not function as intended.
- What software can I use BassJump with?
BassJump will work with most software on your Mac. After you install it, BassJump is automatically set as your Sound Output, or you can select "BassJump Sound System" as your Audio Output directly in your favorite music production application.
- Where can I get the BassJump Software?
The BassJump software can be found here: http://www.twelvesouth.com/bassjump-2-software
- Can BassJump be paired with an Apple display or external speakers?
Yes, BassJump can be paired with an Apple Display or iMac, but because of the larger speakers in the iMac/Display, you will not experience the same improvement in sound as you would when paired with the much smaller speakers of a MacBook.
To pair BassJump with external speakers, open the BassJump Prefrence Pane, and in the "Pair BassJump With:" dropdown, select the exteranal speakers with which you would like to pair BassJump. BassJump also works with headphone-connected external speakers, simply by deselecting the "Disable BassJump when headhphones are connected" option in the BassJump Sound System prefrence pane.
