The product is incredibly easy to set up and use, with a simple calibration process that took only a few minutes.

The SoundID Ref was able to identify and correct any acoustic issues in my room, resulting in a more accurate and balanced sound. The difference was particularly noticeable when listening to music with a lot of instruments and complex soundscapes.

Furthermore, the kit comes with a microphone that can be used to calibrate the sound on other devices, such as my phone or laptop, which has been extremely helpful for my work as a music producer.

Overall, I highly recommend this product to anyone looking to improve the acoustic sound in their room. It is an affordable and effective solution that has made a significant impact on my listening experience.

It solved a lot of my problems!!! You cannot replace this with an acoustic treatment, that would be an illusion. Also even in the best case with CPU and minimal usage of plugins, you'll get latency. So please use it all the time on your listening, mixing, mastering, etc. but you'll need treatment for tracking and in general. I got a lot of bass problems and Sound ID solved them, plus peaks and reductions on the mid/high-mid section are much clear!
