Are you sure this isn't just a fling? You said it yourself, you're new to all this but you're already gunning for the high end headphones. It can get pretty pressurising being around people who talk about their thousand dollar rigs all day. You sound like my friend who was into bikes. He was all, "I LOVE BIKES some day i'll gather enough money to buy some high end Trek bikes"... months later he decided bikes wasn't his thing and moved on to photography.
