Gaming Headphone Search: Stereo vs Virtual/True Surround sound

    I want to get a headphone for playing Battlefield 3 on my pc desktop. I want to be able to pinpoint an enemies location. I don't know if i should buy a really good stereo headphone or go the surround sound headset route. Price range $200, good isolation, big soundstage, excellent comfort for hours of wear.

    Stereo:
    Bose Ae2
    Beyerdynamic dt770 pro
    Ath m50s

    Surround sound:
    Razer Tiamat
    Turtle Beach
    Tritton ax720 pro
    Corsair 1500
    Astro mixamp
    Razer Megalodon

    I have owned the ath ad700 and astro a40 with mix amp but returned both. I disliked the ath ad700 for its lack of bass and open design. Astro a40 sound seemed muffled and not as detailed but the mixamp did make the game more immersive and really help loacte enemies so maybe pairing the mixamp with a higher quality headphone like the beyerdynamic dt770?

    Any suggestions or oppinions will be greatly appreciated :)

    m50's aren't gonna give you what you want, they have a small soundstage.  You also posted in the wrong forum so your not exactly going to reach your target audience.  Check out these links;
