A Complete Mixing Workspace in Your Headphones

Important Note: This is the Realphones Professional Pack. The following versions are also available:

dSONIQ Realphones re-creates the acoustic environment of a recording studio control room in your headphones and corrects their frequency response. With Realphones, your headphones will turn into a reliable monitoring tool for mixing tracks that you can trust.

Realphones gives you everything you missed for sound mixing using headphones! A meticulously picked set of features will help you understand how your track will sound at a studio or elsewhere without taking your headphones off.

With Realphones You Can:

  • Correct the frequency response of your headphones.
  • Emulate a studio control room with professional near- and far-field monitoring.
  • Use binaural virtual positioning based on HRTF.
  • Simulate the frequency response of professional and home/consumer audio reproduction systems.
  • Monitor the spatial and frequency components of the mix.

Realphones 1.7 has a new simplified interface, which we added at the request of users. Now the interaction with the Realphones is much easier since there are only three intuitive main controls.

Easy Mode

A new interface is called “Easy mode”. Thanks to this, new users will be able to significantly improve the quality of their headphone monitoring in just a few clicks!

The “Easy mode” has no compromise in sound quality. It has the same engine with simplified controls which let you change the sound of Realphones in a much more convenient way.

You can switch from Easy Mode to classic Advanced Mode and back.

What’s New in Version 1.7?

  • “Easy mode” introduced: additional simplified interface with no compromise in sound quality
  • 3 new headphone emulation profiles: Dynamic Open, Dynamic Closed and Gentle Response
  • New factory presets added
  • Offline export control: now it’s possible to mixdown through Realphones

How Does Realphones' Technology Work?

Alignment of Headphone Frequency Response

Peaks and dips lead to errors in timbre and musical balance and cause frequency masking. A more even response allows you to get a more reliable transfer of timbre and musical balance.

Virtual Acoustic Space

Conventional Headphones' Stereo Reproduction

Phone transducers are located close to the ears and are acoustically isolated from each other.

  • Imaginary sound sources are spaced too widely and not joined into a solid soundstage
  • The spectral balance between the centre and sides is disturbed
  • An absence of room response leads to a dry and thin sound

Binaural Angle Set to 60°

Psychoacoustic virtual source placement matches the reproduction of a standard studio monitor setup.

  • The representation of the mix and its components becomes solid.
  • The level and frequency balance between the centre and sides is reconstructed.
  • Proper localisation and interaction of the sound sources are necessary for creative work on the width and depth of the mix.

Room Ambience Set to 100%

The binaurally captured ambience of professional studio control rooms is added to the dry headphone sound.

  • The mix is reproduced in the context of real room acoustics.
  • The body, transients and space of the mix are revealed.
  • Room reflections provide points to tweak the levels, equalisation, space and effects for a better mix translation.

Mix Testing Tools

Realphones includes modelling of diverse sets of pro and consumer audio speakers so you can verify the behaviour of your mix across a wide range of simulated speakers.

Also, there are controls for various aspects of the stereo mix. Test mono compatibility, left-right symmetry, single-speaker playback and the side anti-phase component.

How Can Realphones Benefit You Personally?

Do you lack a suitable acoustically treated space? Do you have to work on mixing tracks at home, in a room with terrible background noise and reverb, and even professional monitors aren't enough to get the results you want?

With the Realphones plugin, the possibilities for mixing on headphones approach the conditions of a professional recording studio's control room. You'll be able to trust your monitoring, making the mixing process much simpler. And your family and neighbours will no longer have to put up with intrusive sounds and loud music.

If you have access to a professional audio studio, you'll be able to use Realphones for supplementary monitoring in the studio, and also as a primary tool for working on tracks outside it.

In studios with unfamiliar acoustics, you will always have access to the controls you're used to.

Modes for emulating various audio devices help you determine how your mixes would sound on consumer speakers, systems with a powerful subwoofer or portable devices, without even getting up from your desk.

Also if you are travelling a lot the Realphones plugin is ideal for working on mixes on the road and when travelling. All you need is the plugin, headphones, and a laptop. Realphones is honest monitoring that's easy to take on the go.
