I need an opinion on a headset choice

Currently I have the x11's and am using the DSS2 surround sound adapter. The sound is great but I wanted to try a true 7.1 surround sound headset. I think the x42's are 7.1.

Anyway I was wondering if it was worth it to drop money on a headset when I have the DSS2 for my X11's. Is the sound really that much better with a 7.1 headset?

Ya know, I saw that newegg had the xp500 on sale for $170. I've had many a headphone and so far those are the best I've used. It's worth looking into.

You cant even get 7.1 sound through optical. Its a marketing scheme.

You can definitely get a better sounding headset, but dont base it of 7.1
