I have never considered myself an audiophile, but watching videos from Josh Valour, DMS, etc. plus the fact that I love listening to music probably more than anything in life makes me want to become an audiophile. However I do not make a lot of money as of right now, so I want to create the perfect setup for under $500. As of right now, I am leaning towards the 6xx and the Schitt Stack from everything that I have heard online, but I want to know if there is something that I'm missing that might be a better value or if there is something that is slightly more expensive that creates a sound quality far superior than what I listed.
For context, I love all kinds of music, but my favorite types are choral, bluegrass, folk, classic rock, and 90's punk rock.
For additional context, I have the SteelSeries Arctis Pro Wireless for gaming and I love it, but I also have the AirPods Pro and I prefer that sound signature for music.
