1. Headphones don't have surround sound, they're purely stereo

 

2. Any headset that has surround sound comes with their own sound card usually in form of USB dongle

 

3. Audio technica AD-900X, this is an open back headphones where you will be able to hear your surrounding perfectly and they can hear what's playing on your headphone too.

 

4. As far as sound card goes, it kind of depends what kind of motherboard you have. These days, on board sound from the motherboard is already pretty good and doesn't generate a lot of better sound compared to internal sound card. What I would recommend you is to get an external AMP + DAC or just a DAC
