"We are proud to support an increasing number of headphones, and at no incremental cost to the consumer," commented Helmuts Bēms, CEO and co-founder of Sonarworks. "Frequent travelers will appreciate that True-Fi now supports two of the best noise cancelling headphones we have ever measured: the Bose QuietComfort 35 II and Sony WH-1000XM2.

Sonarworks' True-Fi technology, which made its debut in the consumer market in November of 2017, removes unwanted sound coloration from headphones so consumers can experience the artists' true intentions — on a sonically balanced listening canvas. The consumer-based software — which is available on both Mac and PC platforms and soon on mobile devices — is priced at just $79 USD and was awarded 'Best in Show' in the music listening category at CanJam Europe in Berlin last November.

True-Fi is available for purchase on Sonarworks' website.  For more information about Sonarworks' True-Fi, please visit https://www.sonarworks.com/truefi.
