Question Looking for new surround headphones..and possibly a converter


Novice Member
I'm in the market for a new pair of surround headphones, but have been having a terrible time trying to find what I need due to my strange setup.

Here's the deal:
I'm using a set of 3 Behringer Eurorack Pro RX1602 mixers to take audio from a variety of sources (2 computers feeding out analog 5.1 audio, 2 digital to analog 5.1 converters sending from the HDMI matrix switch to the mixers for game console audio, a couple stereo sources, etc.) and outputting to my Logitech 5.1 Surround speaker set as well as my current headphones (old Turtle Beach Ear Force HPA2 surround headset - it has served me well but it's starting to wear out).
(Like I said, it's a rather strange setup)

So to summarize that:

Multiple 5.1 Analog Surround Sources -> 3 Stereo mixers
3 Stereo Mixers -> Analog 5.1 Speakers and Headphones

The problem of course, is that nobody seems to be producing surround headsets anymore that take analog inputs (or if they are, I haven't been able to find them).
So I'm looking either for a set of headphones with at least 5.1 surround analog input, or a set with some sort of digital surround input and a way to convert my analog surround output to the digital surround input to run the headphones.

Any suggestions?

Thank you.
