I buy a lot of chairs for our office, and you can get some low priced ergonomic chairs from amazon, that aren't expensive or garbage:
I find them to be super overpriced. If you just search on amazon for (whatever colors you want) office/desk chair and stay in the $75-$120 range I think you will be fine. I personally am doing a white and black setup and I bought this chair a while back. I paid $120 for this about 2 years ago.
Only issue I've ever had so far is I lean on the arm rests REALLY HARD with my elbow and the cover is starting to crack, but other than that its been an absolute joy to have. Seat is a big thick piece of foam. I don't think I've ever bottomed out on it (I only weigh 140lbs though) You can tilt forward and backwards, put the back to about 140 degrees (back or laying), and obviously up and down.
Just check reviews. If the 4 & 5 star reviews are at least 70% or better you are usually good to go.
Another very similar amazon offering; we use these at work and I bought one for the house, love the three-way adjustment. Comes in a few colors as well.

Is this chair worth $300? I currently have this mesh chair and its similar just squeaky AF now and has a cushion rather than mesh butt rest.
Got that one for $43 shipped on sale.

Would it be worth switching out this chair I got for $45 after tax for this one. Main differences seems to be a head rest and mesh butt pad instead of a foam or whatever butt pad.
Look at this one: [link]
We have herman millers/a variety of other ergonomic chairs in our office. This one is in your price range and is reviewed well.
1/2) Herman miller make aeron
3/4) I would buy a decent ergonomic chair from amazon. We have a bunch of these, they are good. [link]
You will have to look around for a $500 deal.
Good reviews on Amazon , i'd get it for that price.
Same price on Amazon as well since they matched it :D

Paid $40 for it back in May 2017 lol
Why not one of these or even this? I have one and its way more sturdy and comfortable than the comparable Staples office chair I had prior to it. With "gaming" chairs you're just paying more for the race car seat colors and "gaming" in the name.
So I have a Herman Miller Aeron (around $1000 loaded) and a cheapo from Amazon. I prefer the cheap one honestly.
For headphones, I would be really concerned about audio lag. If you're on a budget and can deal with a long cord, I'd suggest these. They come with a 4' and 10' cord, and have really good sound quality for the price. You can easily spend 3-4x that for a wireless set with worse sound and possibly lag. Also, I've never had the batteries die on my corded headphones.
