Our ears receive sounds from multiple sources in a true 3 dimensional sound stage. Inside headphones however they are cut off from that sound stage and effectively forced into a 2D environment. Perhaps I worded my initial statement incorrectly. Read below...
Did you actually try it before declaring that it doesn't work? I have and found it worked fantastic.
Give it a try and see if your opinion changes.
I don't need to try it to state an obvious fact. Sure, you can make sounds that are suppose to be behind you a bit quieter, and sounds coming from the front a bit louder, but that doesn't make it true surround. It's faux surround and perhaps gets close to the real thing, but nothing you can say will change the fact that you cannot physically get surround sound from two speakers.
