In the SOX documentation there's a link to EarWax, an effect available in SOX that should give results similar to
Crossfeed (Trelane's fb2k/winamp plugin) and
Headplug (Winamp plugin by hustbaer).

I'll probably include it in my Headphone plugin test when something that's got higher priority on my to-do list is done.

Has anyone tried it already?

I've created some samples using SOX+Earwax and added the links to the Headphone Plugin Test thread.

I listened to it myself. Here my findings:

+ in some cases I tested (e.g. castanets) the sound seems to be moved in front a bit indeed. It seems to work pretty well (i.e. moving sounds outof the head) with high pitched sounds/instruments

- The sound is changed very much: less bass; more, too sharp hights
- Clipping is easily produced: castanets needs to be amplified by 0.7 to avoid (awfully sounding) clipping
- Having a look at spectral view it's clearly noticable that the echos and filters applied caused some frequency bands to disappear - decombing would be necessary.

Result: I don't like it - it makes listening through headphones much worse.

Just curious - has anyone tried this again on a newer version of SoX?

If yes, are there any improvements to warrant using it now almost 9 years after this thread was started?

Thanks!

There hasn't been any development on the earwax effect, as far as I can see.
