Waves Nx Headphone Mixing Plug-ins Add Target EQ for 170 Headphone Models



They use spatial audio technology plus precise measurements to put you in a world-class control room

Did you graduate from kindergarten? Did you read this release last summer?

Then you’re officially old enough to remember when almost no one would even consider mixing on headphones.

Welcome to 2022.

Oh, and if you were wondering, the answer is no – Waves doesn’t expect you to own all 270 headphone models. 

Here’s their release:

 Waves Audio, the world’s leading developer of professional audio signal processing technologies and plugins, announces a major update of all its Nx headphone mixing plugins, adding EQ correction curves for over 270 popular pro audio headphone models by 54 headphone brands.  

With this new update, all Waves Nx plugins – Abbey Road Studio 3Nx Ocean Way NashvilleCLA NxNx Germano Studios New York, and Nx Virtual Mix Room – now offer EQ correction profiles for practically every pro audio headphone model, by AKG, Audio-Technica, Beyerdynamic, Sennheiser, Sony, Shure, Focal, Audeze and dozens more brands.  

With this update, Waves Nx is now the ultimate, most complete headphone reference solution on the market. It is now the only headphone reference software to combine EQ correction for all major headphone models as well as 3D acoustic simulations of the world’s finest studios, from Abbey Road and Ocean Way Nashville to Germano Studios New York (formerly the Hit Factory) and Chris Lord Alge’s Mix LA – so you can fully trust the sound of your headphones when producing and mixing.  

The EQ correction method selected for Nx is the innovative Harman Headphone Target Curve. Developed over the last decade and based on countless blind tests, the Harman method is now widely regarded as the definitive representation over headphones of how flat speakers sound within a well-balanced room. 

With Waves’ groundbreaking Nx plugins, you can now create better mixes wherever you are, over any set of headphones. You can make your best decisions about balance, stereo image and panning, mix depth, low-end response, reverb usage, and more. You can get reliable perspective as you cross-check your mixes in trustworthy acoustic reference environments, expertly tuned to ensure that your work translates properly to all systems – and now, also EQ-calibrated for every significant headphone brand. 

All Waves Nx plugins except Abbey Road Studio 3 are included in the Waves Nx Virtual Studio Collection. Abbey Road Studio 3 is available separately. 

Current price: $79
