Did it occur to you that a lot of people, including me, like the AD700 more for music (don't just assume that they like them more due to gaming performance) than the HD555. Just because you don't doesn't mean others wont. The AD700 is the technically superior can (better detail, clarity, soundstage separation, bass quality, speed etc.) The HD555 may have more bass and but when its slow and wooly in comparison, it doesn't mean much. The AD700 is also more forward sounding than the laid back HD555, at least in the highs (bass impact is stronger on the HD555). Sound balance preference and comfort will be dependant on the individual.
