Sonarworks adds headphones & updates Reference 4

Posted on: Monday 1st of July 2019

Latvian audio software developers Sonarworks have announced the addition of 17 new supported headphone models for their  audio calibration software Reference 4. The addition of these new models – which include headphones from existing supported manufacturers such as Sony, Sennheiser, and JBL as well as new additions from House of Marley, Taotronics, and Brainwavz – bring the total count of supported headphones up to 247, a number which Sonarworks says will continue to increase.

“One of the great strengths of Reference is that it allows engineers to work in any circumstance and trust what they hear, whether they are using monitors or headphones,” explains Sonarworks Co-Founder Martins Popelis. “By continuously adding new headphone profiles, we’re able to accommodate more of our users and ensure that all of them are getting the same Studio Reference sound that has become essential to their workflow.”

  • Brainwavz HM5
  • House Of Marley Positive Vibration 2 Wireles (with cable)
  • House Of Marley Positive Vibration 2 Wireless (Bluetooth)
