Help How much should one spend to notice the difference in the player

From what I heard/read headphones are the greatest contributors to overall sound quality, followed by the file type/compression followed by the actual source.
I presume that this means that if i tried to compare the audio between lets say an Ipod and a S9 using just the standard white apple headphones i would hear little or no difference?
So in that case my question is approximately how much does someone have to spend on headphones before they can actually hear a difference.
Also does it vary from source to source like maybe the difference between a S9 and an Ipod might be audible through a $50 head phone whereas the difference between a s9 and a p3 might only be audible through a $100 pair?
Sorry if this is a redundant/silly question.
Also if anyone's wondering I'm only asking this out of curiosity. :P
