Can you use 7.1 gaming headphones when working with Wwise?

I'm a noobie when it comes to Wwise and I tried to do some research without much success. I'm wondering if I bought a pair of 7.1 Headphones, would they function while working in Wwise? Would I have to use a plugin to make them work, is it a signal output and busing thing, or will they not work as a pseudo 7.1 solution? I was debating buying a pair of Arctis 5, 7.1 Headphones to use while working in Wwise at home vs buying a 7.1 or Atmos speaker system. Is there a workaround with headphones? Could I theoretically use my current stereo headphones with a "Virtual Surround" plugin? Thoughts?
