All those options are bad. I recommend going straight to hi-fi. Look into a TH-900 that will give you good results without having to get an amp, and scale up when you're ready to get an amp.

If jumping straight into hi-fi is too much a hurdle, the TH-X00 is an excellent mid-fi version of the TH-900 at a decent mid-fi price which is currently on Massdrop. The Nighthawk, which uses the same bio-cellulose drivers, are also a good option if you can find them on sale or used. If you are willing to spend some money on amp, try a high-quality planar like the HE-400S.

Avoid lo-fi like the plague. The headphones you list are all lo-fi. There's no point starting off your journey in the low end just to end up spending more in the long run when you go into mid-fi and hi-fi products. In the mid-fi realm there are a lot of obsolete plastic dynamic driver headphones from Sennheiser and AKG, as an example, that you should avoid (K712, HD-650, etc). Amazon reviews are completely useless to an audiophile. Very few people on Reddit (and Massdrop for that matter) have ever heard hi-end audio. Be picky about sources of information.

For a first headphone the ATH-M40x would be great cant go wrong for the price really just check the reviews on amazon.
