When you plug them into a 5.1 surround sound system, do you loose sound from channels?

It’s not clear if:

a) You are asking whether plugging them into your system will disable the loudspeakers
b) You are asking whether you will get surround sound effect through these headphones

If [a] – it depends on your system. Probably, depending on where you plug them in.
If [b] – it depends on your system. If it emulates surround sound through stereo headphones – yes; otherwise no.

Sorry… I answered backwards:
If [b] – it depends on your system. If it emulates surround sound through stereo headphones – no (i.e. you will not lose the surround effect); otherwise yes (i.e. you will probably get a Stereo downmix).

Thank you for your response. To be clear, I have plugged headsets into 5.1 surround sound systems before, and found that only certain channels (Front Left, Front Right and Centre) were fed to the headsets and any dialogue sent to rear speakers lost. “Emulating surround sound through headphones” is a function of the headphones, not the system.

Why do people think the word lose has two ‘o’s? Terrible
