I use these as an alternative to PC speakers, I have a great set-up but the noise from PC games drives my Girlfriend crazy, she also dislikes most of the music I listen to so guess what I got for Christmas.

The Headphones themselves are fairly comfortable and light, considering all the stuff they have on them. The sound is fantastic, it took a little bit of messing around with EQ settings but after that was done they sound just like a 5.1 system.

The only thing that could be improved is battery life. Two AA's will get you two or three days before the headphones start beeping at you (to change the batteries). They give you a set of rechargeable but if you spend any significant time with them on you'll need to pick up another pair of rechargeable (maybe two, just in case).

If your wallet can take the hit I would highly recommend these headphones.

They are exactly what you would expect for surround sound headphones. The surround sounds do sound like they are coming from behind you, the sound is not ear-blowing, mind-numbingly "surroundific" but it is better than, lets say, the surround effect you would experience using a good pair of headphones on a surround reciever on headphones surround mode.

These headphones are pretty good. They're perfect for Apartments when you don't want to disturb the people living around you. I would suggest getting a home theatre system though, if you own a home. Headphones fit very comfortably, and have a surprising bass sound coming from such little speakers. If you have the money, they're worth it.
