Waves Audio has announced a new headphone EQ calibration update to the Waves Nx Virtual Mix Room plugin.
Waves said the new feature allows users to select a correction EQ curve for specific popular headphone models.
Nx Virtual Mix Room is a virtual monitoring plugin that recreates the three-dimensional acoustics of a professionally treated mix room on any set of headphones.
This allows mixers to hear on headphones the same depth and panoramic stereo image they hear from speakers in a physical room. It enables users to properly judge how headphone mixes will translate to speakers.
Based on precision headphone measurement data provided by www.headphone.com, the Nx plugin’s new EQ calibration curves are designed to balance out any extreme features in the headphone’s frequency response, correcting them toward a common frequency balance. This provides a more transparent starting point for monitoring and mixing.
The following headphone models are currently supported by Nx: Audeze EL-8 (Closed-Back), Audeze iSINE 20, Audeze SINE, Audio-Technica ATH-M50x, AKG K-702, Beyerdynamic DT-880 (250 ohm), Beyerdynamic DT-990 (250 ohm), Sennheiser HD-280 Pro, Sennheiser HD-600, Sennheiser HD-800, Shure SRH-440 and Sony MDR-7506.
Using Nx Virtual Mix Room with EQ calibration, users can now mix and monitor on headphones with greater confidence, experiencing precise, reliable high-end sound.
