Re: [PLUG] Looking for a Music App for Hard of Hearing

Stereo EQ!
stereo eq plugin  (this is an effects rack)

otherwise...  there are some longshots...

Pulse audio will allow you to unlock stereo and have different volume controls. [output, click lock]

Any of the spatialization plugin, stereo widening, binaural. VLC has something called audio channel remapper. Stereo to mono remapper. Also headphone spatialization effect. Any of these will at least give different responses that might help.

Possibly running audio through audacity and applying eq to one side, if a stereo can't be found. This is their plugin page:

There's a pulse audio eq but it's not stereo

Backend code for stereo eq

I've got a pretty significant hearing loss in one ear, and now am
starting to suffer from age-related hearing loss.  When I listen to
music with ear buds on my android phone, I hear fine through one ear,
but the other is muffled because my hearing loss is more severe at
certain frequencies than others.

I'm looking for an app that can compensate for frequency response and
loudness in each ear separately.  Ideally, I want a graphic equalizer
that is separate for each ear so that when I play music, it compensates
for the losses I have at the specific frequencies I have.  I would use
some type of white noise generator to set the individual frequency
responses for each ear.

Anybody know of such an app?
