Okay this has obviously been asked before but I've come across so many differing opinions on this subject that I might as well ask.
How good is this headset when it comes to competitive gaming (Xbox) for games such as PUBG, Halo, Gears, CoD? I'm mostly into being able to hear where enemies are and positioning them. I would like a little bit of bass to kind of "feel" explosions but mostly concerned with pinpointing enemies in games.
My options are K7XX, HD58X, HD6XX, HE4XX

I've been using them since I got them on my PC for all of my gaming. Thankfully the onboard audio on my motherboard is actually fantastic and has enough oomph to get these singing.
Coming from my previous ATH-M50s with only upgraded pads, these are a joy for spacial awareness in various games. I'm especially impressed with the positional audio I get through the Dolby Atmos option in Overwatch. In general though, I'm very happy with the audio for gaming.
If you're going to be using them for Xbox though, you'll definitely want to make sure you've got something to drive them properly. I'd suggest at very minimum 50mW into 32ohms for the amp, more especially if you enjoy them loud.

Thanks for the reply, yeah I plan on getting a Optical DAC and Amp to power the headphones that I do choose.

any reason why you haven't considered the PC37x?
