I know how you feel. I listened to the AD700, quite often, for three years before buying Mad's Q701. I do love the Q701, but much more often with the AD700 I think I hear someone behind me and I turn around in real life, to see nobody. Maybe the bass is really quick and cold, maybe the upper-mids are colored, but I am definitely attuned to them. The Q701s dominate music time, but sometimes I get in a groove of playing the AD700s straight out of the recon3D so the AD700 gets around 50% of my gaming time.
