This may be off-topic since this is not a "system-wide" solution, but anyway...
You can use ffmpeg's sofalizer filter ( https://ffmpeg.org/ffmpeg-filters.html#sofalizer ) to load and apply SOFA files (https://www.sofaconventions.org/mediawiki/index.php/SOFA_(Spatially_Oriented_Format_for_Acoustics), which you can grub from http://sofacoustics.org/data/ for example.

In case of mpv player, you can use sofalizer like this (in Windows):
Code: [Select]
mpv --af=lavfi=[sofalizer=sofa="C\\:/Users/foo/bar.sofa"] file-to-play
Note the backslashes before colon in the path name. Since colons are used as delimiters in the ffmpeg filter spec, you would need to escape them.

You can try He-suvi

Interesting collection of samples and equalizer presets there. Too bad there's no real way to use them with PulseAudio. For one thing, PulseAudio's HRIR virtual-surround-sink plugin is terribly limited, in that it does raw sample convolution instead of using an FFT, and because of this, it also limits itself to 64 samples per input to output mapping.

I also tried doing something funny with the dtshx then dtshx- presets, which caused my USB microphone to lock up, and murdered PulseAudio in the process.

I'm quite certain you have to pay for that, unless they changed it.
In the Windows Store, you can look up "Dolby Access" to find the app that lets you buy "Atmos for Headphones".

Now, there's "DTS Sound Unbound" app which leads to purchasable access to DTS:X and DTS:X Headphone.
Which, last time I tried to install for the demo, removed "Atmos for Headphones" from my Windows Panel until I uninstalled it.

Using Win10 you can choose Spatial Sound in the audio panel.
One of its options is 'Dolby Atmos for Headphones"
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/win32/coreaudio/spatial-sound

Is this newish to W10? Interesting.
I'll try it when I'm feeling masochistic enough to give another try to Win10.
I like to use "HD audio" in PaulStretch. "HD audio", lol.
