dSONIQ Realphones re-creates acoustic environment of 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.
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.
Mixes made on headphones sound good only on the same headphones and often translate badly to speakers or even to other headphones. Realphones technology is designed to compensate for headphones' most prominent reproduction distortions and misalignments when compared to speakers. Turning on Realphones when mixing with headphones will provide a reliable representation of how your mix would sound on professional studio monitors in acoustically treated room and outside it.
The number of Realphones Supported models exceeds 100.
Do you lack a suitable accoustically 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 neighbors will no longer have to put up with intrusive sounds and loud music.
So you have access to a professional audio studio, and you're not sure how you would benefit from Realphones?
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.
Do you travel a lot?
The Realphones plugin is ideal for working on mixes on the road and when traveling. All you need is the plugin, headphones, and a laptop. Realphones is honest monitoring that's easy to take on the go.

From what I see Realphones System-Wide works similar to how Sonarworks Reference, ODeus ASIO Link and VB cable work on PC, between the ASIO driver and the direct CPU calls to the operating system. But RP has a lot more audiophile centric features that are needed for mixing.
I have a EGA Nu Audio sound card, Sonarworks demo was constantly fighting with Nahimic driver of my Nu audio card introducing latency for some weird reason.
RP System-Wide has been very hassle free with my setup Nu audio, FL studio, AKG k240m2's. The latency is within a normal range.
I have clear sense an audio engineer has been working on this, the speaker response emulation is awesome. It sounds like bass drum kick is coming from floor and not in your head, some real interesting acoustic modeling going on, it reminds me how Airwindows VST "Monitoring" plugin's 'Cans' settings worked. I found myself very easy just to listening to music without any fatigued at all when using RP. FL studio has no problems with it.
For PC it is a very good headphone monitor emulation system, I've always used headphones. It's exactly what I needed, other people mileage may vary.Read Review

I've been using Realphones for a few years now, since first betas that were distributed in a proffesional circle and were not publicly available. I'm really glad it's finally released into the world and I can put my two cents in).
So I sent my two pairs of headphones (HD 650 and Blue Mo-Fi) to dSoniq for calibration profile. And when I got 'em back and heard 'em through Realphones I was blown away by the difference it made. The calibration alone really opened up the sound and made the center image much more defined. I recently compared averaged profile with my custom one and it's very close, not as detalied but very close indeed.
I use it every day when I'm writing music at night in my headphones and as a an additional monitoring option during mixing (especially to get a sense of kick and bass since I don't have a subwoofer). And when i take my headphones off and turn up the monitiors I hear exactly the same thing! Well, not the frequency response of course but the balances, panorama positions and so on. Its exactly the same feeling as sitting in front of pair of monitors in a real room.
I know a few of my colleagues who just don't like it and don't get it. Its fine, different folks different strokes and a matter of taste of couse. But for me it's one of those must have tools in my box. I have it in my Ableton and ProTools templates already set up on the headphones bus. (Btw, if anyone's guessing how to do that - create an effect rack on your master with two chains, put Realphone on one, add External Audio Effect after it and route it to your headphones outputs.).
I haven't compared it to competitor products yet. Mainly because it just works for me and it's already tuned to my headphones. But when I do - I'll remember to update this review accordingly.
Also, I should point out the reason I jumped on Realphones boat is the developer. He's a professional sound engineer and has deep understanding of all the science behind the plugin both theoretical and practical to such an extent that I felt like a total noob talking to him about HRTFs. He's really passionate and invested in this product, constantly listening to feedback and improving it. So if there's something not to your liking in the plug-in - make sure to send some feedback and there's a really high chance it will be added/improved in the future updates.

Realphones turned my cheap SuperLux HD668b headphones into decent monitoring tool.
The sound became cleaner brighter and audio image became more focused. There are a lot of presets and settings, I really liked "Next door" preset because I feel the sound like in another room.
There are many other mix checking options. Mixes made with Realphones translated well to consumer and professional monitor speakers.
