Is there any "good" ones?

I have tried a turtle beach HPA and was not impressed.

Nope. Surround sound headphones are a gimmick. The drivers are too close to your head. Its like a 5.1 system set up as a 2.1 system.

forget the surround sound headphones. It's all marketing b.s (except for some of the Ultrasone Series, those are quite neat ! )

just pick a decent can and follow Graphicsm's thread in order to achieve 5.1 surround sound through foobar.
