So if you do only have one driver per ear, software can manage any surround sound requirements?

Thanks all for the info, I've got a decent grasp now and am therefore finding my research a little easier. Thanks for bearing with me.
Pretty much. At the end of the day you only have 2 ears, which is like having two microphones on the side of your head. Your ability to understand where things are in a space is based of the timing difference of the sound hitting each ear and some other things, but mainly the timing difference; thus you only really need 1 speaker (driver) per microphone (ear).

There aren't any 'serious' 3d sound systems that use multiple drivers per ear. BAE Systems Striker II Helmet
