I am planning on buying a headphone in the next couple of days and is wondering whether to buy the Philips Fidelio X1 or not. It is gonna be used primarily for gaming and I'm worried it will not provide any good "surround quality" aka being able to her where footsteps/explosions originates from - hearing peoples footsteps when they come behind you etc. From what I can see it is not avatized to have surround, like most gaming gear have - like virtual surround 5.1 or 7.1. Now this might be me just being stupid, but what kind of virtual surround is the Philips Fidelio X1 able to produce? - none, virtual surround 5.1, 7.1 would be most helpful if anyone could clarify as this is why I'm hesitating at this point. I know the headphone will produce very good sound quality, but will it give me a decent "surround" experience? Also would be nice if anyone could tell me if I need any special gear/software to make the philips fidelio x1 work properly.
Also as a side note, I'm considering "powering" it with something like ASUS XONAR U3 - do you guys think this is a good choice or not?
