    Wondering if someone can help me out a little.

    Is there any kind of volume cap on the MacBook Pro that I can remove?
    When I have my headphones in, at maximum volume it is fairly loud but just needs to be that little bit more louder?

    Also, if there any kind of setting where I can play about with the EQ?

    Thanks in advance :)

    I believe this software http://www.rogueamoeba.com/audiohijackpro/ will be able to accomplish what you want.

    EDIT: Yeh just had another little look at it appears you can use audio hijack...

    Just a side note, some apps do have a built in volume "booster" (VLC, iTunes, etc.), however if you want it generally I'd go with the previous poster.

    I agree. I've been very pleased with the volume enhancement and bass boost provided by Boom.

    If you can't get the volume and quality that you want through software applications you might want to get a small headphone amplifier to plug in between your Macbook and your headphones.
