    Also, if it can't take a 5.1 input then it's not 5.1 IMHO, it's simulated. a stereo jack connection can't provide that.

    So me, with only two ears and all, am I getting 5.1 or simulated?

    They are actually quite good and although sold as a gaming headset are excellent for late night DVD watching when the kids have gone to bed and in the office for music and Skype duties. The surround works very well TBH and the in-line volume control gives you the freedom to set the volume over all channels independently and the audio quality cannot be grumbled at given the price.
    I have an earlier version of them with the seperate Pre-Amp, was a great set of cans and loved them to bits, but the in-line remote and seperate pre-amp let them down as both broke easily Keep thinking about getting another pair as the surround was brilliant

    And how might that compare to simulated stereo from a single speaker?

    Enquiring minds want to know!
