I need a new headset

I prioritize sound quality over everything. multi channel surround sound is secondary. Budget is +/- $400. My motherboard is - https://www.asus.com/us/Motherboards/ROG-STRIX-Z370-E-GAMING/ the on board audio seems fine, but definitely has flaws. i'm not sure whether to put all of my budget into the headset itself, or to split it to get an amp as well. Thoughts and suggestions?

slkipp has the right idea, grab a set of HD 6XX on Massdrop for 200, and then get a standalone mic like a yeti or snowball. i have a pair of HD6XX and can vouch for how good they sound.

you can always get an amp later on down the line

I've heard - http://www.schiit.com/products/magni-1 is a good amp. Would it be worth the $100 to pair with the 6xx?
