Basically the two crossfeed I found to be the better are BS2B and head-fit with sheppi (the second combo is the most natural I've heard).
You can download them as dsp for foobar2000 for windows, Qmmp for other OS.
why will it not be the same? theres no "surround", but all in all, why would there by a difference? i jut turned on the plugin xnor suggested and the first thing i noticed was the volume dropping sharply. other than that - things do sound wierd. i dont understand why though...
edit: i think i figured out why it sounds odd. i put on a hol baumann track that has a distinct melody that previously danced from one ear to the other (which is why i chose it), and now with the crossfeed on, instead of moving from one ear to the other, it drops and rises in volume - which is what sounds odd, although i may just be imagining.

Rockbox (a firmware for portable players, like the sansa clip+) also has a simple crossfeed built-in.
thanks very much. i couldnt find the plugin on the foobar site, so i googled it and the first link i found was a post you made in a different forum XD. im using the xfeed dsp.
the plugin comes with crossfeed options: ILD low, ILD high, ITD. and eq options: volume and low shelf. all of them with a bar.
the only one i can understand is volume... is there any need to play around with these settings?
edit: after i installed the plugin, i went to move it to the "active dsp" list and saw theres also a "crossfade" option. whats this? because when i tried using it (view - dsp - crossfader) foobar crashed...
