Best Headphones To Use For Home Theater?

I rent an apartment right now and can't really enjoy my DD 5.1/DTS Denon reciever's surround sound capabilites too loud so I was wondering if there were headphones that at least psuedo emulates DD 5.1 or just any kind of surround sound feeling that would be better than just using the TV's speakers and are reasonable priced (maybe under $200?).

Thanks and sorry if this was already asked, I did a SEARCH already.

I don't know about other brands but I've heard the Sony MDR-DS5000 aren't too bad.

I used the senheiser pro logic emulator (used to be called lucas), and it was okay.. but honestly, all it does is make it sound like audio is not centered in your head... the rear effect doesn't really work. Still a good unit, however.

My co-worker has been raving about the Dolby Headphone mix on the new Pearl Harbor release. Apparently it works very well on any set of headphones. Hopefully more DVDs will be mixed as such.

The Sony MDR-DS5000 have been replaced by the DS5100.

Are those the Sony headphones with the external DD/DTS device. Those are supposed to be cool...
