In addition to individually calibrated Sennheiser headphones, the bundle includes the full package of Sonarworks Reference 4 Studio Edition — as well as Headphone Edition — software, plus a microphone for speaker calibration, providing consistent reference sound both in the studio and on the go. Combined, this premium bundle gives engineers and music creators the ability to work “inside the box” and outside the studio using only their headphones, with the confidence that what they are creating will translate directly to the studio.
Reference 4 Studio Edition is the latest iteration of Sonarworks’ patented audio calibration software technology, which has been embraced by music creators at all levels, to artists and audio engineering students. The software and measurement microphone included in the Reference 4 Premium Bundle give creators the ability to accurately measure and calibrate their rooms for reference sound in any location, as well as improved mix translation.
"When paired with Reference 4 software, precalibrated Sennheiser HD 650 headphones feature an advanced filter engine that allows Sonarworks to correct all FR dips and peaks, making these headphones perfect for monitoring, on-site duties as well as record mastering," the company explains.
“All of our existing headphone calibration models provide accuracy within +/-3dB on average across a model range, which is a major improvement in precision,” adds Sonarworks Co-Founder Martins Popelis. “By measuring and calibrating headphones individually however, we can account for left and right channel differences between drivers as well as ensure that we’re providing improved accuracy across all frequency ranges for each set. This way we’re tailoring the response to each individual set of headphones and accuracy is improved to +/-0.9dB.”
