Need advice with our poolside waterfall.

We made the mistake of having our landscape designer design the waterfall for our new pool rather than someone who specializes in waterflow. The aesthetics are nice but the features of the flow are uninspiring and the sound is more like loud slapping (water comes from high above), not soothing at all.

We are trying to figure out a way to retrofit what we have rather than take the whole structure apart. We've tried adjusting the water pressure, adding items at the top, etc. but nothing works.

We have considered adding gradual steps at the bottom to deflect the water before it hits the pool? Or....... installing small shelves from top to bottom to create a obstacles for the water to flow around on the way down? But what should those shelves be made of? ledgestone? more glass tile? How to install?
