I mentioned this set in the thread I started about headphones for home theater use. It is well reviewed and gets high marks for its ability to produce surround sound over headphones. A head-fi reviewer even says he prefers these headphones to his 6.1 speaker based surround system (http://www5.head-fi.org/forums/showt...threadid=59025) Yet, there is a lot of skepticism about surround headphones. In another recent thread about surround headphones the consensus was that effective surround headphones was a fantasy. The Pioneer set seems to be an exception if you believe the reviews. Yet they are expensive and for that much money I don't want to be dissapointed even a little if I buy them. So I'm looking for feedback on these units specifically if anyone has tried them. Are they as good as the reviews indicate? If I buy them I'd make sure I buy them from a place that has a good return policy, but it never hurts to get as much information as possible.
