If you only care about game sound, then the ad700x is the best way to go.

If you willing to sacrifice a bit of sound stage for more sound quality for things like music, then go for the q701s.

Personally, unless you are really trying to competitively compete in csgo or something like that, I would go with the q701s.

The ad700xs are just too bass light.

If memory serves the K612 has a smaller sound stage, but thats about it. I would say you would be better off with the ad700x, but I am not 100% sure.

I really have no idea. I do not play games to a degree in which I need better headphones.

The best advice I can give you is you can pick up the ad700x from a best buy. It may be a few bucks more than amazon, but you can plug them in and if you do not like them, you can just return them.

I would much rather make the shorter trip to best buy and just throw the box at someones head.
