I have used these before... OMG do they sound amazing! BUT way past my price range

http://www.amazon.com/Grado-PS-500-P.../dp/B005W1BXC6

Now I almost bought these, back when I had more money than sense... but these are incredible as well:

Being a true audiophile is extremely pricey. Also, this totally should have went in the audio subforum

If you want a good place to start, I would look at a FiiO e17 as a good baseline for a headphone/DAC. You will have to do a ton of research on cans in your price range because there is something for everybody. Like one big preference is open vs closed cans. You have to figure out what it is you want, then research for products that supply that sound.

Ok What I'm thinking for a Good Gaming/ Music Setup For Audio would get that e17 buy a pair of ATH-M40x. With a Blue Snow Ball. I Still want to find a good 2.1 Setup for Speakers Doe i heard the Sound Sticks We're good.

The M40x is a good choice in that price range.

Not really many "good" 2.1 setups without getting overly expensive to the point that piecing your own together would benefit you more.
