DETROIT - Sonarworks has introduced a piece of audio processing software that could very well revolutionize the way you listen to music thru your headphones. It’s called True-Fi. Digitally elevating the sound of average headphones into a high end studio quality listening device. This is done through your headphones by changing the signal you hear, uninfluenced by the equipment itself. In other words, the software controls your equipment for ultimate listening enjoyment.

A little background on Sonarworks. In 2011 Helmuts Bems Founder/CEO and Janis Spogis Partner/VP came together to create a music technology company delivering award-winning software for the studio sound experience on headphones. The company is endorsed by Grammy Award producers and sound engineers, at 2017 Sonarworks True-Fi software received an award as the best accessory for music listening and the Sonarworks technology was also used in music preparation for the 2016 Rio Olympic Games Closing Ceremony.

Now back to the review.

Because all headphones deliver a different sound based on manufacturer and model, we decided to test the True-Fi software on the Cleer FLOW and Sennheiser Urbanite (both bluetooth), along with the Marshall Monitor and Sony MDR-V150 (both wired) and lastly, a pair of $10 discount store earbuds.

Not to get too deep into the weeds, the Sonar True-Fi developers are aware that all headphones sound different and alter the sound of music as it was heard in the recording studio - this sound difference is the largest remaining problem in music playback. As a result, everyone misses out on something. True-Fi is on a mission to address this issue by delivering original studio sound to all music listeners.

Helmuts Bems, CEO and co-founder of Sonarworks said, “The biggest problem music listeners experience today is not in the file and stream quality, but the playback. True-Fi uses proprietary, research-driven technology to audibly improve the performance of loudspeakers and headphones.”

For a fair assessment, we reviewed the True-Fi audio processor with a music collection that has stood the test of time, a file that has offered nothing less than a full spectrum of the listening experiences: Jazz and 'Ol Skool' Jams. A perfect storm of what your favorite artists hear in their studios just with the headphones you already have.

Downloading the software was a breeze. By just clicking on the install button, we were on our way. The instructions were easy to follow and syncing True-Fi with the five devices was just as simple. However, the execution and configuration process requires one to take age, gender and headphone manufacturer and model in order to properly sync the product with the software.

After testing all the possible listning devices at our disposal, the True-Fi software truly transformed even the most modestly priced headphone into a high, studio quality listening device. True-Fi provides a clean, sophisticated method of adjusting the sound of your headphones to your preferences. Also, we tried the software while watching movies online. The sound was amazing.

So, for anybody wanting to enhance their listening experience, this could very well be a viable solution without going broke or selling the farm to buy high end gear.

It's compatible with both Mac and PC desktops and for free on Apple Store and Google Play mobile devices. The company offers a 10 day free trial period, so you can give a spin around the block. I'm sure you will agree that this piece of software is very cool. Just click on the link and you 're on your way: www.sonarworks.com/true-fi
