I have owned both the HD555's and XB700's, one after the other. The HD555's were much better for clear, precise audio but had next to no bass. They suit indy, maybe light rock, pop etc... They are much more tone neutral and great for if you want accurate audio.

The XB700's are the polar opposite. They offer bass, bass and a bit more bass. The issue is this overrides something of the mid frequencies and makes everything seem a bit messy. However, for dubstep, they were the better of the two.
