How about Canada? You aren't that far from home (relatively speaking) - School here is a touch cheaper than the US  even when you consider international tuition.
Playing with my latest purchase - the Sennheiser Amperior. Listening to country music (Dean Brody - Dirt) flac format fed via the Audioengine D1
Let her have the IEM's... once she gets into the hobby you will have more to share. Plus it reduces the chance of her giving you a hard time about buying new gear. Imagine the day she walks in and actually tells you it is time to "upgrade your gear"
I have one reserved @ $99.99 but 40 miles away... I am curious what the fuss about this is but snobby-me doesn't like the skullcandy name... I could give them to my bro who likes thumpy bassy headphones. Are these any good? I listen to country and rock - mostly country and want something that can be driven off an iphone / ipad...

Means that a while ago there was an active discussion about sites like massdrop / groupon and some moderator put it in no uncertain terms that those deals are not to be spoken of around these parts.

Maybe you need that cable with the crazy magnets that Patrick82 had? That would make them sound right... Seriously though, I feel your pain - I had that moment with cars. I own a Lexus LS but my dream car is a Bentley or Maybach - once I got up close with a 57S I was traumatically disappointed that it was just a nicer S-class. Maybe just focus on the music with the setup you have an enjoy the moment.
