yes they are a gimmick.
sennheiser 595's and a JVC Dolby Headphone decoder unit will be your new best friend.

the JVC has an optical input and is portable. It converts a Dolby Digital signal into a DOlby Headphone signal. If you havent heard dolby headphone in action, it really is quite amazing. dolby's website has a demo of it, and it works with ANY set of stereo phones.

if you dont like the looks of the senn's try the beyerdynamic DT880's.

Thank me later.

Yes you can get surround sound headphones but i dont think they are going to be any good. You can try out the Pansonic RP-WF6000s or CreativeHQ-2300D and Medusa5.1home edition.
