Read our full review of the Sonarworks SoundID Reference here. The process remains largely the same for existing users, but for new users, you can get a glimpse there.

“Sonarworks latest offering, SoundID Reference, sees the industry leaders in reference software up the ante yet again, this time by way of integrating several features found in the brand’s personalised listening products and combining them with the unrivalled feature set of the industry-leading Reference series, achieving the most powerful Reference suite yet (and also bringing the gap between perfectly calibrated, acoustically treated studio space and budget headphone monitoring into as close a proximity as they have ever been).

“Using SoundID Reference by Sonarworks will give any audio setup a leg up in terms of clarity and translation. The combination of rock solid room calibration, speaker/headphone emulation and flattening of the acoustic issues associated with on-ear and over-ear headphones is one of the quickest and simplest ways to level out the playing field, and for that, there is simply no better product on the market than Sonarworks and the the latest incarnation of SoundID Reference. It’s simply one of the defining studio technologies of the current era.”
