Press Release Highlights

Pioneering audio calibration software company Sonarworks has announced the launch of its new Sonarworks True-Fi mobile app at CES 2019 [Tech West, Venetian Suites, Booth #31-209]. The revolutionary mobile app, which provides audio calibration references on both iOS and Android for nearly 300 headphone models, has already launched in ‘early access’ and 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. Existing Sonarworks customers who already own the desktop version will be provided a free upgrade option to a lifetime license for the mobile app.

Sonarworks True-Fi mobile app — provides consumers with the ultimate sound experience ‘while on the go’ — supports wide a 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).

“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.”

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.


The new mobile app, which supports nearly 300 headphones, 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.
