I’m sure you have heard people say that listening to music through cheap headphones does an injustice to the song (and these people would be mostly right). Luckily for those of us that can’t afford top-of-the-line headphones, there is another option – CanOpener. CanOpener works with your headphones to make sure the music sounds its best. You can also use the app to fine tune music to your personal preference. You can add more or less bass, increase clarity, and help protect your hearing. This app costs $1.99, but it is well worth it! After using CanOpener, you won’t know how you lived without it.
