Add stereo cross-feed options to headphone playback

Since I started using better headphones, I realized how important it is (to me) to use a stereo-crossfeed plugin to convert stereo signals to binaural signals, simulating the natural cross-feed you have when listening to stereo music with speakers. To me, it vastly improves spatial perception of the music and makes listening with headphones much less tiring. (Without it, music sounds like being placed along a spear that is driven through both my ears. With it, music gains angular resolution.)

On my desktop. I use this excellent plugin with PulseAudio:

Read there for more theoretical background, too.

I think, it would make a very useful and distinctive feature to integrate this with the Jolla sound system. It makes in particular sense, because people typically listen to music with headphones on mobile phones.

I like this idea! It should be easy to implement since Sailfish runs pulseaudio as well.
