If anyone's attending WCES, hope you can check out any new Dolby Headphone (DH) hardware and let us know how it sounds, availability, etc. For the unitiated, some hardware was introduced at WCES 2000 and several members reported favorably about listening results. There's some discussion of the technology here: http://www.avsforum.com/ubb/Forum3/HTML/001237.html

Basically, it enables you to use conventional headphones to hear surround sound, akin to earlier systems on the market. Including upcoming (?) non-software-based DH system(s), there must now be 4 or 5 such products on the market or announced. Saw an announcement of the latest in the news section of Widescreen Review a few months ago. It would be nice to read a complete roundup in some publication, including double-blind listening tests to compare surround-sound effectiveness.
