Just remember, just because there are people who find it shit and stuff, does not mean it is necessarily shit. There are a lot and i say, a lot more people who find it good. Just because people say they are hyped up and are bad does not mean that they are actually bad. Now I'm probably going to get a lot of hate for this, but the people who say m50x are bad are those who have spent quite a bit in audio, and have heard better headphones which is why they say the m50x are bad. Or they are people who instead decide to buy like say the sennheiser 598s and then goes on to bash on the m50x to comfort themselves on making the "right choice". There are also others who just carry on the hate after seeing others bash on the m50x, and who don't even own the m50x. Of course, there are better options at around the same price out there (that part I have to admit), but for that price that the m50x are at, it is a solid option, and not a bad one at all. Sure it may not be the best at that price point, but they aren't anywhere close to how bad some people describe it. I for one would say that the dt770 is quite a good choice, but it is a little bit more expensive than the m50x, considering how you need a decent amp to power that pair of headphones, which would set you back another $100. But people keep recommending it all the time saying how it is so much more better than the m50x at the same price, which i find weird because unless you already have an amp, the dt770 technically speaking would cost much more than a m50x if you want to bring it to its full potential. Also people recommending m40 instead of the m50x saying they are more neutral and shite like that, he wants this for casual listening and gaming, not for mixing and recording, so he doesn't need neutral sounding headphones unless that's his taste, which i doubt so.
tl;dr It's not the best, there are better options out there, but they are definitely solid and good for the price, and you definitely have not made a bad mistake.
Back to your point. $200 is a lot of money and can get you headphones much better than the m50x, considering retail of m50x is $50 less than your budget. If you could, return them and get like the k7xx, but you might need an amp for that to be at its full potential too.
