Opus_demo does not read and write wav files, it reads and write little
endian raw 16 bit pcm data.  It's very easy to get the raw format
settings wrong and get buzzing output like you describe. Without more
information I cannot offer more advice.

Opus demo is a testing tool for development and not an end user application.
