    If you're not wanting a microphone, how about a pair of Sennhesier 497s?

    http://www.askdirect.co.uk/uview?cal...351&topcatid=7

    They look a bit cheap, but they are very good headphones for the money (RRP is £50 as far as I'm aware, but you can often find Sennheisers for much below their retail price, such as that above store).

    Expensive compared to the prices at askdirect.co.uk.

    And the surrond sound headphones are the Zalman ones - I think there is a review on the hexus site..

    If you want to spend lots of money get a set of DSP-500's. Absolutely amazing quality, you don't need a sound card to use them. They cost for you VAT payers about £80 i think

    I've heard that a good pair of headphone (e.g. some of the Sennheiser) can do pretty convincing surround.

    Sennheiser really are top dog by quite a way when it comes to headphones. Have a look around, they have a wide selection of headphones to suit both taste and budget.

    The Zalman Headphones are excellent in my opinion. For Gaming, DVD Movies and Music, they provide a quality and thorough sound in true surround. This is achieved by having 6 speakers in the headphone, 3 each side (2 front, 2 centre and 2 rear).

    Well worth the purchase if u:

    a) can afford them
    b) can find somewhere that sells them.
