I've been looking around for a few months but I can't decide which one I should go for. I like female vocals, and I would use mostly for anime, visual novel (which is kinda similar), and maybe some asmr.

Some headphones I'm considering are fidelio x2hr, meze 99 Neo, hifiman he400i, ATH-AD900X, HD598, maybe akg q701/k701 if it's really better than other ones? Feel free to suggest me anything else! I'm probably going to buy them on ebay or amazon, and my current headphones are Creative Aurvana Live!

Budget: Around 200$.

The X2HR isn't bad for what you're wanting to do, and relatively easy to drive. You should be able to get a used pair in excellent condition for ~120, or they're new on Amazon for $145.

The HE-4XX is probably the "better headphone" but it's pickier about amplification and not nearly as comfortable as the X2HR.

The HD598 really needs dedicated amplification. The Q701/K701, similar.
