Surround Headphones

I'm looking for some surround headphones.
After having researched around I am looking at buying the LTB-AC97-M http://www.ltbaudio.com/ltb-ac97-m.html

My problem lies in the fact as I can't seem to find them in NZ.
Does anyone know if a legit reputable place to buy from in Australia, or further abroard, say US or the UK?

One that will ship internationally.

Is Amazon fine to buy from?

We can only get the Zalmans here - and after the reviews, etc I don't think they would be worth it.

Well If I could find some decent tech specs I might look into them a bit more.

Again there is a problem getting them in NZ

These are the only ones I could find but I've never had any dealings with them. http://www.megapc.com.au/index.php?c...e=subcat&ix=51

Just some quick input here. I bought som eof the Zalman units a while back as did a few others here. They are great. I did quite a bit of reading and research on what to buy and why. I do have some of the articles saved. I will post them here if you like. Just remember you will never get the same effect as you would from surround speakers.

Also if your a music lover they do not suffice! A Decent pair of normal stereos will always do so much better.

Not to disagree, but.....

It all depends on the settings. My Zalman set do much better than my Jenson or Pioneer stereo set I have. I agree that a nice higher end will blow them away. They are great for movies and gaming. If you already have a good stereo set then you can switch over to them when listening to music.

I can get the Zalman / MMgear surrounds here. The problem I have with them is the lack of base (probably due to the fact that the LFE channel isn't connected), and the poor high range reproduction. I also have no qualms in paying a couple fo hundred $NZ for a decent set, that and maggie said I could.

They are going to be used for Games, music, skype (although thats going to sound strange if it gets upmixed).

I already have a pair of sony stereo headphones (not sure of model), and I am looking at getting the JBL creature speakers. But for me at night, or when one of her shows is on, a decent set of headphones would go a long way.

Thanks QSDT, unfortunately they only deal with Aussie residents - well I may have to find a pair when I'm next over.

EDIT: Does anyone know if the Medusa-USA website (http://www.medusa-usa.com/) is ok to order from?
