What do you think of these headphones & is virtual surround sound worth it?

OK so I'm thinking about buying these: -

Questions: -

1. Will they also work by just plugging them into my TV audio jack without the USB soundcard? (Since my TV doesn't have USB input).

2. Is the virtual surround sound worth it? Is the experience any good? If it's a bit of a gimmick I was thinking of buying the cheaper ones that don't have it: -

3. Should I avoid them all together and go for a different brand? Reviews seem pretty good though.

Cheers!

  1. I opt for #3

    If your source is a TV via 3.5mm/RCA out, forget USB cans and stick to decent stereo, wired cans - head down to headfi for more advice?
