Saving a marriage and going to headphones for Movies and Music - Page 2

If localisation of sound is that important I would look into the Smyth Realizer. If you just want an enjoyable listening experience I would suggest the TH900, HD800 or maybe one of the Audeze's. If you can reach for it I would suggest a DAC/Amp combo like the invicta or Eximus DP1 that offers a range of connectivity options. Best of luck, sorry about your wallet.

I've tried a lot of different headphones for movies and my favorite has always been the D7000, even over much more expensive ones. I always just ran them straight out of my Denon AVR-988 but you could always pick up a cheap-ish Turtle Beach base that has a 1/4" input and run the optical from your AVR to that and get simulated 5.1. Problem is you will lose the lossless track as those codecs will not pass through via optical/spdif. Were I in your position I'd probably roll the dice on some Fostex 600's and just plug straight in to the AVR. YMMV

Bingo! I watch all my movies on the TH600 or HD800's. You will get better sound out of them than any kind of headset with 5.1 or 7.1 as they are usually pretty low rung anyway. At the worst you could get a Audio Gd amp/dac connect via S/PDIF and run it to the headphones. The sound is extremely detailed, I think you would be surprised with the fine detail you can extract at times.
