Does anyone have it what are your experiences with it?

I used to own the Asus N55SF can anyone possibly tell me if the results are equal to or better than Asus's implementation of their subwoofer feature with their newer N-series lines of laptops?

Wow it's been a while since someone talked about this. I used it with 2011 13 MBA and those speakers were loud but very tinny. Using the BassJump, the bass improved dramatically and it sounded like someone put a whole set of new speakers plus a subwoofer in it. I enjoyed it very much.

I can't compare the bassjump to the asus as I've not heard the asus, but I have the bassjump connected to my 17" MacBook pro and it is awesome!!

One of my favorite purchases in recent times

I also love my bass jump 2 on my rmbp. Software is a little buggy in ml but its beta right now. Speaker itself is amazing

My friend's Asus G70-something or another (has Intel i7-2650M and 3GB NVIDIA GT560M) had terrible speakers (and terrible display).

The Bassjump original is exactly the same as the Bassjump 2. Serious. Go digging around on their FAQ and you'll see that I'm not lying.

Anyway, the new Bassjump software vastly improves the original, and the original was decent. Previously, it added a bit of depth and richness to your sound - the Mac's treble and high-mids are of excellent clarity, but the bass was lacking. Now, however, the Bassjump adds thumping bass.

Make sure you download the correct software.
