Improve the quality of your headphones, simulate a wide variety of brands and models, or customize your own headphone sound with TB Morphit.


Every pair of headphones has its own, characteristic sound. Did you ever consider how the specific sonic attributes of your cans change your mixing results? Do you ever wonder how your mix would sound on different headphones?

Virtually every existing set of headphones introduces unwanted changes to the audio. TB Morphit helps to reduce these unwanted artifacts by improving the response of supported headphones. Moreover, it can simulate the sound of any of the other supported headphones. Hear how your mix translates from one set to another. Monitor how your mix will sound for your audience. This is especially important since several market studies have indicated that the majority of audio content is actually consumed over headphones. For this purpose, Morphit does not only include studio headphones, but also includes stock ear buds.

Morphit is the result of a painstaking and meticulous measurement effort to capture the frequency response of headphones, and correcting them using scientifically-proven target curves. Our measurement methods are fully in spec according to ITU-T P.380 (2003). Read more about the importance of headphone correction in our blog post and our most recent scientific paper on this subject in the Journal of the Acoustical Society of America.

TB Morphit is an excellent companion to TB Isone, our environment simulation plugin for headphones. The cascade of headphone equalization (Morphit) and room acoustic simulation (Isone) together provides an unprecedented accuracy for simulation of loudspeaker reproduction on headphones.

Processing modes

Morphit operates in one of three modes. These modes are explained below.


In this mode, Morphit will correct and improve the response of the selected headphones. Unwanted resonances will be reduced, too much or too little bass response will be corrected, and alike. The graph in the user interface indicates the correction that is applied as a function of frequency.


In this mode, Morphit will simulate the response of one headphone while using another. Two identical lists of headphones will appear: the top list is used to indicate what the headphones are you are wearing; the bottom list is used to select the headphones to simulate. Besides specific brands and types, the list includes ‘generic’ models to simulate generic HiFi headphones, a typical ear bud, studio reference headphones, as well as dummy-head responses (such as a free field and a diffuse-field response).


This mode extends the “Simulate” mode, as it will supply a four-section equalizer to modify the equalization behavior. Simply drag the shelving and peaking filters around to adjust the sound to your liking.

Integrated peak limiter

Morphit supports peak limiting to facilitate easy application on a master bus without causing clipping. The peak limiter is similar to our flagship peak limiter Barricade. The level reduction that is being applied is visualized by the gain control.


  • Real-time, zero latency processing*
  • Fully resizable user interface supporting many color themes
  • Supports more than 100 popular studio headphones
  • Includes models of stock earbuds to simulate listening on the go
  • VST, VST3 and Audio Unit (Mac) versions
  • High-quality peak limiter integrated
  • Any sampling rate supported between 32 and 392 kHz

*When enabled, the limiter introduces approximately 3 ms of latency that will be fully compensated by hosts that support plugin latency compensation
