Modern signal processing is quite powerful, and SonarWorks’ True-Fi app breathes new life into even cheap headphones with a flat frequency response.

If you could take your most coveted pair of headphones for a test drive, would you? Well, SonarWorks’ True-Fi software supports 232 various headphone profiles, allowing your C-grade cans to emulate the frequency response of more desirable models. The company is constantly updating supported headphone profiles and plans to do so each month: recently added are gaming headsets like Razer and HyperX.

True-Fi affords plenty of versatility and customization by empowering users to fine-tune each headphone’s profile. Do you like the Audio-Technica ATH-M40x but want a bit more low-end? True-Fi grants you the freedom to make those adjustments. So, although it may look like you’re listening to Apple AirPods from a bystanders perspective, it may sound like you’re listening to the Monolith M1060.

Based on your age, the software can limit exposure to treble frequencies that are outside your range of normal hearing.

By assembling a database of headphone frequency responses, SonarWorks’ software lets your modest over-ear headphones mimic the response of the sought after beyerdynamic DT 990 Pro.
