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 — is priced at just $79 USD and was awarded 'Best in Show' in the music listening category at CanJam Europe in Berlin last November.
The True-Fi software platform, which now supports more than 125 popular headphone models, takes just seconds to configure and employs measurement-based compensation profiles to correct tonal discrepancies that are caused by the headphones' physical construction. The result is 'studio reference sound' — closer to the artist's intentions and resulting in a more emotionally engaging listening experience.
Pro audio heritage
The recent launch of True-Fi reflects Sonarwork's deep expertise in the recording studio industry. Currently, the company's professional software is installed in thousands of recording studios and relied on by top studio mixers and mastering engineers around the world. In 2015, the company's professional audio software offering, Reference 3, received an 'Editor's Choice' award from respected UK-based publication Sound on Sound. Recently, the company launched its latest professional software offering: Reference 4.
"The biggest problem music listeners experience today is not in the file and stream quality, but the playback," commented Helmuts Bēms, CEO and co-founder of Sonarworks. "True-Fi uses proprietary, research-driven technology to audibly improve the performance of loudspeakers and headphones. True-Fi stays true to the promise in its name, helping listeners experience the artists' true intention."
Sonarworks, which is constantly adding new headphone models to its calibration profiles, will soon be available on mobile devices at no additional charge to existing users. Further, new features such as personal listening profiles and age-based hearing compensation, will be introduced in the coming months. Currently, the software supports sample rates of up to 96kHz and the company plans to announce support of higher sample rates in the near future.
