Designed for sound creatives who rely on headphones for monitoring, Sonarworks Reference 4 Headphone Edition is a headphone calibration plug-in that removes unwanted coloration from over 100 supported headphones, for mixing and mastering with consistent results. Whether in the comfort of your studio or on the road, this DAW plug-in makes it possible to take your monitoring reference with you and trust the mixes you create on your favorite headphones, with greater confidence.

Sonarworks Reference 4 Headphone Edition uses proprietary Headphone Acoustic Power (HAP) measurement technology to measure and adjust the frequency response of your headphones and precisely match flat- and neutral-sounding studio monitors in a well-treated studio. It offers calibration profiles, predefined simulations, and filter modes for a variety of usage scenarios. With zero-latency monitoring, the software can be used live when tracking vocals and instruments.

Included is the Reference 4 Systemwide app for headphones. This plug-in add-on brings the convenience of system-wide headphone calibration. It lets you retain a neutral sound, no matter which app you are playing music through, whether it is iTunes, SoundCloud, Spotify, or other sources.
