My System Specs


The 7.1 virtual is really down to your sound card rather than your headset. IMO, typically the "true" 7.1 sound headphones tend to suck because for an equivalent price you are either getting 2 good drivers or 10 crappy drivers in your headset.

There are products like the Orion Pro which have a usb 7.1 sound card included but I wouldn't call them great sounding. If it was me looking for good $200 headphones I would pick up Sennheiser 558s on sale at ncix right now and use my soundcard/mobo virtual surround.
