Sonarworks Releases True-Fi Mobile App

Sonarworks True-Fi mobile app brings calibrated headphone listening to users with iPhone or Android smartphones.

Works With Nearly 300 Headphone Models

At CES 2019, Sonarworks launched an ‘early access’ program for their upcoming True-Fi mobile app, which brings calibrated headphone listening to users with iPhone or Android smartphones. Previously, we reviewed the SonarWorks desktop software, which is nothing short of amazing. The only caveat for either the desktop or mobile app is that it requires headphones to be pre-calibrated for the best possible listening experience. Nearly 300 headphone models are already compatible, but Sonarworks still needs individually test each one. There’s also a ship/return calibration option for headphones already on the list.

“All headphones invariably color sound, and this is a simple physical reality,” commented Jānis Spoģis VP of Consumer Products, Sonarworks. “Our software uses patented measurement and calibration system for ‘studio sound’, while also enabling users to customize their own listening preferences based on age and other parameters. The new True-Fi mobile app represents an enormous milestone for both artists and consumers, while helping bridge sonic translation issues that are routinely apparent between artists and millions of music fans.”

Highest Sampling Rates

The new Sonarworks True-Fi mobile app takes just seconds to configure and is simple to operate. Once the headphone model is chosen, the user simply presses an onscreen button to engage the selected headphone configuration and the sonic profile is changed instantaneously.  Currently during the early access period, the software will support the highest sample rates possible, depending on the processing power of the hosting system. For iOS, users can expect 96kHz and higher, and Android users can currently expect sample rate performance of up to 48kHz.  During the beta / early access phase, FLAC and high sample rate playback will be continually improved across all devices.

Audio Formats

Sonarworks True-Fi mobile app supports a wide range of native file formats as well as content from iTunes and Android local content libraries. True-Fi mobile supports native file formats including MP3, WAV, AIFF, AAC and ALAC (iOS) and MP3, WAV, OGG (Vorbis) and AAC (Android).

Adjusts Audio for Age

In addition to providing groundbreaking headphone calibration capabilities, True-Fi also allows the user to apply age-related hearing loss compensation and gender-based adjustments and create customized sound preferences. These features, combined with revolutionary headphone calibration capabilities, enable mobile users to have an unprecedented degree of personalization and control over their audio — anywhere they go.

Price and Availability

Sonarworks True-Fi mobile app will be available for purchase later this year in the App Store and Google Play at a price of $3.99 USD per month, or as a lifetime license for $99 USD.
