Hi there
I have a Yamaha Surround amplifier.DSP A5.and a pair of headphones with
surround sound..
Does anybody know if it is possible to use these headphones to listen to
real surround 5.1 from the amplifier ?

Is it possible at all ?

Thanks in advance

It is not possible; real surround 5.1 requires five speakers and a sub
woofer.

No, you'll need a 5.1 surround sound headphones - there are some on the
market.

Otherwise you amplifer should be able to output Dolby Pro Logic (or
simulated surround sound).

Most Yamaha receivers have a "Silent Cinema" mode for headphones. This
mode uses HRTF (head-related transfer functions, look it up on Google)
processing to simulate surround. The effect is modest at best. For more
complete simulation of surround, there are special 5.1 headphones on
the market.
