The product introduces a new Spatial Headphone Compensation (SHC) feature adapting the 44 most used professional studio headphones to the virtual mixing room, enabling a model-independent and stable simulation of a perfect acoustic environment.

This allows audio producers, artists, and content creators to ensure their stereo productions translate reliably to any sound system from three virtual reference stereo mix rooms with four selectable loudspeaker positions, to an additional six non-studio acoustic environments, such as a car or a club – all without leaving the workstation.

Each mix room can be adapted to the user’s taste by controlling the amount of diffusion and setting the perfect balance between overall colouration and localisation based on the patented Clarity algorithm from Sennheiser AMBEO.

“When developing dearVR MIX, it was all about creating ultimate virtual acoustic environments for headphone mixing,” said Christian Sander, the CEO of Dear Reality.

“All the experience we have gained in the field of spatial audio comes together in one stellar plugin, dearVR MIX puts this technology in the hands of everyone”.

The plugin is only available online for USD $99 (approx. AUD $134).

Until November 30, 2021, users benefit from a special introduction price of USD $79 (approx. AUD $107), while Dear Reality offers a free 14-day trial at

The SHC feature has been made available to all dearVR virtual monitoring plugins.
