How does virtual surround sound work?

A lot of high end headphones state they support virtual surround sound, how does it work, if at all?

Yes, virtual surround sound can work extremely well when implemented correctly. It works best with headphones and you want single large drivers. It changes the sound characteristics of each channel to "fool" your ears into thinking the sounds are coming from different directions. It works so well that you can hear footsteps coming up behind you in fps games
