Achieving an accurate mix on headphones is, as we all know, the holy grail, and I've tried various things to address this, which, besides not actually working, were too intricate, with too many variables, and just plain confusing. With that background, and the scepticism attached to those experiences, I demo'd Dear VR Monitor with my AiAiAi TMA-2 headphones, set it to anechoic, worked on my track, got a good balance, and was blown away when I turned VR monitor back off again. The difference, for me, was jawdropping. I expected that to disappear once I switched back to my Yamaha HS7 monitors again, but the mix was still great. I can now mix with confidence with my headphones, knowing that the decisions I can now make via VR Monitor will translate, and I won't have to re-adjust the levels when playing back through speakers. Thank you Brainworx. I now use this on every track. The only suggestion I could make is .....could you guys include some kind of message to remind us to turn it off before rendering ? Apart from that, I think this VR monitor is incredible, and gives me the ability to work in a virtual anechoic studio, and for that reason alone, makes it priceless to me. Thank you Brainworx !!!
This is THE thing to have
Ok, i have a really good acoustic treated studio room. But to compare my room, this Dear VR Monitor piece of art is a must have to my opinion! Together with A/B Metric (and some other great PA soft gear) you got just what you need to mix beyond what you think is possible with your mixes. I really mean this... A real ear opener. Thx PA!

I was shooting this out against Waves NX, and this wins out big in terms of clarity and bass fullness in my HD-650's. Transients seem slightly soft in Mix Room A, but Mix Room B sorts that out, albeit a bit bass heavy even if really smooth. This plugin in Mix Room B however is particularly CPU hungry (literally twice the CPU usage vs Waves NX), and I feel like the phantom center in this plugin is a bit more difficult to perceive vs Waves NX. The amount of detail you can hear in this plugin is stunning, and I will be checking my verbs and delays and other spacial stuff in hear for reference going forward, even if I keep the slightly less refined Waves NX as my daily driver for headphone mixing.

Due to my travels I have to use headphones for my work a lot. The dearVR Monitor is of great help to get balance into my mixes with help of the great rooms simulations. Simulations are so real that I sometimes get tricked believing I am sitting in a real acoustic environment. For those using headphones a lot this is a winner!
use Mix Room B + Dry Analytics
For someone with a home studio setup and not thousands of dollars in room acoustic treatment, this is heaven. With a decent pair of headphones (I'm using Ultrasone Pro 750s) you get a perfect simulation of a much better environment to hear your mixes. I tend to gravitate towards Mix Room B. Dry Analytics is just perfect for assessing different reverbs, setting up your template for orchestral, film scoring, etc.
Worth every penny
It's very simple to dial the best environment for your mixing needs. Not bad on cpu. Great plugin without the extra hype..
A Must Have For Mixing

dearVR Monitor is it! This is an incredible way to reference your tracks and mix. Simple to use, efficient and trust worthy. Great interface. Once you use it you will never turn back to mixing on headphone with out dearVR Monitor!
This is the bomb

The plugin does what it says on the tin and way more. If you mix on headphones a lot, this sorts out the no-crossfeed issue. You can mix multi-channel material using your headphones, no fancy setups needed. You can use the studio emulations to put yourself in a great sounding space when working. You can listen to your work in various spaces, such as a car, to better help your mixes translate. This plugin's a beast. Thanks, dearVR.
Fantastic solution for immersive audio
If you are familiar with DearVR then this will come as not surprise that they have created a solution for mixing in immersive environments on the go or in studios where you are limited to a stereo setup.
