I want high end RGB LED gaming headphones with 7.1 surround sound, that have little to no lag, and a good headphone amp. Thanks

Why RGB headphones? You probably wouldn't see the RGB since it would be on your head most of the time. Plus iirc there really aren't many choices for one You would be better off going with a non LED heatset or even better off going with a decent pair of headphones plus a decent mic, two things you typically gaming headset, which would be your sterotypical RGB headset wouldn't have.

http://pcpartpicker.com/product/tZL7YJ/kingston-headphones-khxhscprd if you want/must have a headset. Also why 7.1, high isn't always better when it comes to headphones/headest, some of the best headsets/headphones aren't 7.1.

or this

plus this if you don't care about how good you sound since you won't be dealing with it. If you do care I would suggest this

none of them.

simple as that.

i tend not to associate "high-end" headphones with ones that have colors and surround sound

High end headphones never have real 7.1 surround sound. We have two ears, and the best headphones are designed to respect how we hear. True 7.1 headphones have too many drivers competing with each other in that limited space. Get a good headphone that reproduces sound the way you like, and then use a virtual surround software to simulation crossfeed.

Creative DSP:

Dolby DSP for Realtek ALC1150 (harder to set up, but if your onboard audio drivers distort sound in the background and you can't turn them off, this should bypass them. It also unlocks some Realtek features that ALC1150 supports but are usually not included):

Then there is things like Razer Surround, though I've never tried it myself.

These will give you a much better experience than real 7.1 surround headphones.

If it's for music listening, I recommend this if you use Foobar:

If you use a rooted Android phone, try this:

Viper4Android also is great for applying digital compensation for headphones that you already have if you are interested, so if you have cheap iems that doesn't distort much, you can refine them close to or past stock flagship iems in the thousand dollar range.
