You’ve got nine new apps to check out today and if that’s not enough, there are still a few freebies left in Thursday’s post.

These are paid iPhone and iPad apps that have been made available for free for a limited time by their developers. There is no way to tell how long they will be free. These sales could end an hour from now or a week from now — obviously, the only thing we can guarantee is that they were free at the time this post was written.

Studio Music Player DX

Normally $0.99.

This simple and smart player takes headphones like EarPods, and many other models, to a completely new level, providing the playback quality usually delivered by professional studio headphones (priced from $600).

You can add music with:
1. Dropbox cloud service
2. iTunes File Sharing service

Supported formats: mp3, wav, aiff, m4a, m4p

How does it work?
Right away, one question pops in many people’s heads: “How can you modify your headphones?? This is just impossible!” That’s right, you can’t change your headphones. But you can change the audio signal sent to the headphones.
All headphones have some sound distortion, caused by many factors, and the greater the distortion the less the music that you hear resembles the original sound that you obtain at a professional recording studio.
Only high-quality studio headphones (usually priced from $600) allow you to hear minimally distorted sound: the true sound. This is because such headphones have a maximally flat frequency response.
Thanks to our in-depth research into sound, we know how to configure your equipment to achieve a level of sound quality maximally close to what you get at a studio. We thoroughly researched the frequency response of all the devices in the player and fine-tuned them taking into account the special characteristics of their sound. In addition, since we know that every person’s ear is unique, we allow you to fine-tune the sound of the available presets, but please be very careful when using this feature: don’t try too hard.

In terms of technology, our player is:
◉ More than 80 fabric presets
◉ Unique 48-band parametric high precision
◉ Possibility to adjust the sound of factory presets
◉ Song Lyrics
◉ Intuitive and user-friendly interface
◉ Possibility to create and edit playlists
to your taste using adjusting module with pro abilities
◉ Automatic presets switching for bluetooth devices (very useful in car or home audio system)
◉ Really low energy consumption
◉ Possibility to change the speed and the tonality of music
◉ Zoom of the album artwork for a detailed view
◉ 16 color schemes, include “Night” skin
◉ Possibility to save equalizer settings to e-mail

We used our entire experience of working with audio to create this player and share it with you. With the help of our proprietary technology for identifying excessive frequencies in the sound, we tried to get rid of the headphones ‘effect’ and obtain maximum presence sensation. Try to listen to live music using EarPods headphones, for example, and you will understand what is meant here.

Many people are searching for their own sound and remain not fully satisfied. We tried to arrange for that you could hear the music as it sounds in the recording studio, maximally close to the studio original sound which draws the line in the search for true sound.

Audio engineers use their entire working experience to make the sound elegant and beautiful. But only 3 to 5% of the people listening to music on truly professional equipment or Hi-Fi / Hi-End class equipment are able to hear what the audio engineer tried to deliver. With our player you will have the opportunity to listen to music in the same way as the lucky owners of expensive equipment do.

The player has over 80 presets for the equipment of the following brands: Apple, AKG, Bose, Beats by Dre, JBL, Harman/Kardon, Marley, Razer, Sony, Sennheiser, Monster, Parrot. Each preset is the result of in-depth research and fine tuning of the sound of each model individually.
You can find the list of presets at our site.

Listen, experiment, share your discoveries and sound experience with your friends!

IMPORTANT: All of the presets were created on original audio devices exclusively. The sound on “counterfeit products” are absolutely incompatible with our player!
The production year and model has to match with the model mentioned in presets. Otherwise, there is no guarantee of studio sound quality.
