Headset advice.

So im looking at headsets. I have narrowed my choices down to two. 

turtle beach stealth 500X

Or the new 420X

What I really want to know is,...is the surround sound in these headsets worth the additional cost?the 500x seems to be the full DTS, while the 420X is not DTS it is advertised as surround sound (virtual surround sound perhaps?) The price difference is quite small so it seems like the 500X is the easy choice but I get the feeling that retalers will be selling the 420X closer to the £100 mark. Never bought a gaming headset but I need one for lat night gaming sessions. plus I like quality stuff, so Im not going to cheap out here. but im not going north of £200 either.

Thoughts?

I own the 500X and i'm really satisfied with the sound quality and the direction of the sound so to say. the only bad thing though is that i have already broken 1 set of 500x. It cracked in the plastic above your ear, hard to explain but i got a new set from the store on warranty. but if was in your shoes i would wait a bit for the 800x that should be here in EU in any week now. better designed and full BT compability to your phone.
