Really good piece of software
Kickname, 25.07.2020
I'm using sonarworks for quite a while now and can say that it's a really good piece of software. I did my best with the room treatment but there were still plenty of small issues here and there and sonarworks is really good at fixing them. I primarily use it on studio monitors and my headphones (which is Sennheiser HD-650) and it works great for both. 650 are pretty flat by themselves, but I still use calibration as it sounds way better to my ears. Not to mention other headphones, that I sometimes use, the difference is huge.

The only issue I've faced so far is the latency thing that systemwide version introduces from time to time, so it's better to go with vst when you use external hardware or something. Other than that software is extremely reliable and easy to use. I had zero crashes, issues, and didn't notice any bugs. The calibration tool is always super easy to use.

Also, I'd like to highlight that sonarworks support team is one of the most professional and understanding support I have ever communicated with. They are fast, polite, and most importantly helped me with my problem (that was totally my fault and didn't have to do anything with the quality of soft). So, yes, really good support.

Essential Tool for Project Studios
JChong, 13.02.2020
I shifted out of my old studio into a home studio setup recently and the acoustics in my new place wasn't great. I struggled alot with the bottom end and noticed massive notches and dips in the low and low mid range, thus I resorted to a speaker calibration software. I did a bit of research and having heard of Sonarworks from industry friends and also online reviews, I took the jump and bought it.

Delivery was prompt and came within a week of the order being placed. Instructions was clear and straightforward. I had to calibrate a couple of times to get it right but after which I was quite blown away by the results. It takes a while of getting used to the calibrated sound. But after a week of listening to various source materials, I could see how useful the software calibration was. Mixing was alot easier and i could make decisions faster in the process.

Systemwide software was useful for just getting the same listening experience out of the DAW but the only drawback was the Linear Phase mode which at times would increase its latency to up to 1 second, which was terribly annoying for watching YouTube videos as it would sound out of sync with the video.

Overall it's a good buy! Only use it if you find that after getting treatment and speaker placement you can't seem to get the sound out of your speakers.

Good at fixing small problems in frequency response
RF12, 05.04.2018
I got this program to help finalize my studio monitor room. I have heavily treated room, and good enough monitors. Still to be sure I wanted something to measure my room and possibly fix the minor problems that were there (bump around 100Hz that comes with smallish rooms etc). For this pourpose the program works well. The most fixing it had to do was around 6dB, so minor changes only considering room size.
So how dit this affect the sound of my speakers in the room? It helped to clarify bass and mid frequencies, and revealed some things that were hard to pinpoint inboth my and others mixes. The systemwide part of the program makes it easy to listen music from youtube/spotify/etc. and the daw plugin is nice too. The only problem in systemwide is that it only uses windows direct sound (I'm a windows user), and has no ASIO support yet, though Sonarworks seems to be implementing it later this year.
Also I would like to say that the program is very easy to use. It guides you through the measurement phase very well. The only thing I would have liked for them to include was a mic clip. I had to resort taking a clip from a sennheiser handheld mic, and pad it a bit to get a snug fit so that I could use a mic stand.

Brilliant
FuzzySham, 27.06.2020
Easy calibration and great results, especially for speaker calibration.
For headphone calibration, I've noticed that some of the curves aren't correct. Like they just use the same curve for Beyerdynamic DT 770 M and 990 Pro, even though one is closed back and they sound different.
But other than that super worth it and really helps with setting up your speakers and room better.
