If it's under$200, go with the vmoda m100, 2nd choice Philips L2, 3rd audio Technica m40x. I've owned all of them. I recommend m100 the most.
If you go up in the $200+ , hd650, hd600, X2, he400i. They are all excellent options. You can't go wrong with any of them. I own all except he400i. I recommend hd650 the most.
Skip the hd598, m50x. I owned both as Well. M40x>m50x. Hd600,650 > hd598
I hope this will help you in your decision making.

Why is m40 > m50? They should be very similar.

40x is more neutral, vocals sound better. The bass on m50x is not that good. I personally prefer the m40x

M50x has gotten a lot of hyper over the years. Some of us think too much.
I sent my pair back after about 10 days. Highs where harsh, mid-range/vocals where a bit recessed and bass was a bit a bit too much into the mids. There was an uneveness that made them sound a bit unbalanced, hard to explain but just sounded off.
Many people prefer the M40x over the M50x. I haven't heard them so can't comment. If you never had good headphones the M50Xs might impress, but if you heard good headphones you may also find them lacking.
Audio is very subjective though.

I listened to both m50 and m40x, and m40x sounded much better. They had bone of those things you mentioned that the 50 had. I couldn't listen to the m50 for nore than an hour, while I forgot I was even wearing the M40x because the sound was so pleasent.

Yeah, I understand the M40x is considered a better alternative by many. It's what I would get if I was getting something not to expensive for portable use.

I’m a beginner audiophile and I need some guidance
I’m looking to spend under $500 on a pair of headphones and under $300 on a amp/dac. I’m looking for the best headphones and amp/dac that would also work well for competitive games such as call of duty, splitgate, escape from tarkov. I want the best of both world so I can enjoy listening and to hi res audio music and gaming. Im pretty new to being an audiophile but I think I want a pair of closed back headphones since I’ve heard the bass is better for gaming while the audio quality can still be great. I hope I can get some good recommendations and thanks to anyone willing to help. thanks, and I’m exited to join the audiophile community.
