Some info about surround Headphone 5.1 options:

You can either choose real 5.1 surround headphones or a 5.1 simulation through stereo headphones.

The first choice boils down to Zalman or Sony 5.1 sorround headphones, that IMO totally lack the sound quality to drive the experience home (the Zalman is cheap but sounds cheap as well).

The second option, in the form of Dolby Headphone, is much better (other virtualizers don't do the trick), and that tech can be found in separate units like the Philips HP1500, which simulates 5.1 surround wonderfully through any stereo heaphone.

I'm personally very fond of the HP 1500 (have one myself), and I posted some of my impressions on the Headwize forums:

Don't mind my overly enthusiastic tone, I'm simply incredibly impressed with the stuff this unit can do when it comes to 5.1 seperation. I find it by far the best solution available.

I hope this helps you in your search.
