You can't get 5.1 surround sound from only the one 3.5mm jack. There has to be three on the computer. A converter would be useless. You should be able to just plug one of the cords into the iPod/computer. Probably the front one (white one).

They have 3 speakers for each ear, i think. each ear bud is like this: o0o. the 0 being a big speaker, and the o being a smaller one. It's hard to explain
