Sonarworks Reference 3 Headphones Calibration is a collection of plugins that can be deployed directly to your DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) of choice in order to calibrate your favorite headphones.

When producing music, it is very important that your audio output system is calibrated. Otherwise, you might notice that the piece you just produced sounds different on each audio system, which is not an ideal situation.

This plugin makes sure that your headphones are brought to a "standard" level so that wherever you might listen to your projects, they will sound the same, no distortion, no added bass, no low volume.

Since it is not a standalone application, you need to have a DAW that you can integrate Sonarworks Reference 3 Headphones Calibration into. After doing so, loading the plugin depends on the workstation that serves as a host app.

The interface lets you perform automatic calibration based on the headphones that you own, which you can select from a combo menu in the upper part of the window. Reference curves can be set, and you can choose between a dry or wet sound, depending on your needs. The "Simulate" button enables you to test the settings that you just configured.

It is possible to enable an "Avoid Clipping" option, adjust the master volume level and customize advanced settings as well.
