    Mixing engineer for The Killers, Pink, Shakira, Imagine Dragons, Chris Isaak

    "I was a little skeptical on how well this would work and quickly it would come up with a profile for me of a song that I had mixed. I was quickly schooled! With the headphones already loaded with a “flat profile “ the program came back with my profile as a flat response in a very short order which would have been what I listened to when mixing the song. BRAVO"

    Love this app!

    I discovered Sound ID from being a Sonarworks user for years and I am equally as happy with this as I am Reference 4! I hope to be able to be an audio engineer into my later years and I feel that this app will play a huge roll in me being able to do that effectively. The A-B identification process was straight forward, accurate, and I was really happy with my ID profile at the end! Excited to see the further development of this app.

    I'm absoloutly in love!

    I am absolutely in love with this app and these improved tracks! With the app off, the songs sound muddy and dampened. Now, lyrics are clear (as well as unappealing lip-smacking mouth sounds and very audible double tracks, maybe things they wanted to hide? lol!).


    However, this app, your app, makes every track remastered! Your app removes the heavy bass so I can hear the intricacies of each track. I love it!

    “For me as an audiophile sound engineer listening to high-resolution music it would be great to make use of sonarworks/sound ID to adjust the sound of my device according to my hearing preferences. To integrate Sound ID in Quboz would improve a lot”

    Just wow!

    “Must hear the difference. Tried this on my AirPods, can’t believe the difference this makes. Amazing! Too bad this is not integrated in my earbuds.


    Love the design of the app too!”

    Works great!

    “Works great! I made my SoundID profile, finished a couple of preference tests and did a quick hearing test as well. The test correctly identified an issue in my left ear (damaged my hearing in the high frequencies) and compensated for it. The profile synced with the desktop app seamlessly. Good job!”

    Great idea!

    Ran through the listening test and love how it creates a personalized experience for my taste in the content I enjoy. Cannot wait to see this in more products!

    You guys, you GUYS!!!

    “I have suffered from APD (Auditory Processing Disorder) my entire life; this means, usually when people are talking, it sounds like they have a mouth full of mashed potatoes and I struggle to make out a single word they're saying half time.


    The same thing with songs.. it sounds like all the words are blended together. For instance, for over a year I thought Charlie Puth was saying “Throw that dirt all on my name” - And I just listened to my favorite song through this app (after going through their hearing tests...) and it's like I'm hearing the completely different song and it's 500 times better.. and I can actually hear the words.. I'm legit in bed about to cry. The only way I knew the lyrics to any song was after I googled them. Now.. I can actually hear them and it's incredible.

    Killer App!

    Just one request.... Firstly, this app rocks & what I’ve been missing. As an avid audiophile & music producer, I truly appreciate what Sonarworks has done to bring high fidelity to the masses.


    Keep up the amazing work!!

    Dope

    “I thought the app on both iOS and OS worked seamlessly. The sound profiles are interesting to me, especially as a mixing engineer. Feel like after I did all the test, my hearing experience was accurate! Felt like I was hearing bass, especially real low notes better than I have before!”

    Nice!

    “Easy to use, can try for free and pair with a desktop 60-day trial. Anyone familiar with Sonarworks will see a familiar approach, now with individualized preference, and hearing, profile testing for a lot of popular headphones. Worth checking out!”

    Fell in love with my headphones!

    “My Sennheiser HD650 sound much better now, I find they’re a bit bright and bass-light, but this app has sorted out that for me. The option of having your sound ID to your computer is great too as I listen to music a lot on my laptop. The hearing tests were fun to do too. This really works for me.”
