surround sound headphones are a joke. these could be the best ones out there and theyre still not worth it. stop buying into the marketing. get a sound card instead for 3D sound through phones and positional audio. either way, headphones by themselves represent sound positional exceptionally well through simple stereo, and with only 2 speakers you get better quality sound for the same price.

on a side note, if i were to buy a nice speaker setup today, i'd definitely go with a really nice 2.1 setup over a 5.1 since the quality of the sound would be better. plus i use my headphones more and more for gaming and music is stereo anyway.

ive actually used this headset before, and, yeah, it is really expensive, and i cant say id buy one because of that, but they are much better than any headset ive used, and ive perused the majority of the good ones out there. the surround is overkill, but they sound beautiful. better than some of the bose headsets, and those are top notch.
as for the stereo setup, i have a surround and wouldnt trade it. ive also got a built in card (comes with the mac) that can deal with the surround. windows shits a brick, but macside deals just fine. sounds better than the sony 2.1 that i have, and it was only 50 dollars more. plus, any movie watching is infinitely superior with surround.
and tf2 is epic.
