Not yet...
It is strange because there should already be a beta version released.
This was announced from sonarworks for this month

Hello,

I don't well understand what is your upgrade system.

I already own Sonarworks 3 with the headphone calibration, and the speaker calibration with the mic, bought before september 2017.

What is the SystemWide ????

How much would it cost me to upgrade to version 4?

Thanks for your help

Regards

Sergio

If you wish to ask Sonarworks directly you would be better to mail them.

But your upgrade is 19 euro as shown here:

SystemWide is an app that processes all audio from your computer with the calibration so you hear the same process whether you use the DAW or are playing from a media player or browser audio etc.

Today I measured my speakers wth and without the correction curve at the sweet spot. I think the mids might be from when I need to put the measuring mic over the mixing desk, a place I never lean over to listen, it’s a shame we can’t set the limits for the measurment process ourselves. Also like we know you can’t just push more bass into a acoustic dip and flatten it out. Also the time response /waterfall plot doesn’t look too good with Ref4, it triggers my 27Hz fundamental mode more than flat (it boosts it a little but also worse in limited onstead of normal low end). Keep in mind this is only the sweet spot, Sonarworks take measurements over a wider area. But I think some of those areas are worthless to include if I never use them. One graph for left and one for right speakers. Edit: Yellow is before, red is with Sonarworks correction. I did not move the mic during the measurements.

picked up the mass drop hd6xx. Supposed to be the same as the hd650, so fingers crossed when I get them that they will work well with that profile. Any chance the Sonarworks team might be considering profiling these headphones. There were millions sold during the sale so I am sure this is one that will get used a lot.

Hello guys! I was reading about the headphones recommended by Sonarworks staff, the Audio Technica M40X was said to be far from neutral and with unreliable treble, however I think it flat (as far as possible), and even more than the Beyerdynamic DT770 as well recommended by them. What do you think?

Cheers!

I think the next move for Sonarworks is being able to move around the room and still be in the sweet spot. That’s the next level but, until then I love this program!!!

Sennheiser HD600 or HD650 are the ones that require the least adjustment to be 'flat' , I have a pair of DT770s , great for recording with but no-where in the ballpark of flat in comparison to the HD600/650s.

Thought you might like to know this

That's true, but I still prefer my DT770 over almost any other headphone. Maybe it's because I'm listening to it since almost 20 years and know exactly howvrhings have to sound like. At the moment I have Reference correction at 50% wet, any more and I feel uncomfortable.
