I got mine yesterday and after trying them on 3 different amps i really have no problem with the mids.....

Well to me, the mids on DT880s sound forwarded compared to the M50s (DT880 has slightly recessed mids).  And when you compare HD600 to M50, mids definitely sound recessed (HD600 considered very neutral).  When compared to HE-6, M50s seem to have no mids.

 

As for the OP, if you find the bass of the HD600s lacking then you really should consider the HD650.  I wouldn't exactly say they are out of budget as you can find a pair on the FS section for ~300.  You might amping problems though, but I believe they can still sound better than M50s properly amped.

This is directed to the OP as to refute your claim of muddled mids.

http://www.headfonia.com/closed-cans-shootout-m-50-esw-9-t50p-hd25-1-beats-studio-srh-840-srh-750dj-k181dj-and-dj1pro/3/

This is a highly reputable review and has been linked on these forums many times. He says in his review of the M50 "If the midrange is just average on the Shures, the M-50 has a much more seductive, fuller bodied, and smooth midrange. Just everything that you would expect from a good midrange."

Now he only compares closed cans, and the shures he is referring to are the SRH-840, and the SRH-750DJ, but what he says is still valid to my point.

If you really insist, but I still wouldn't say the midrange on the M50 is that good.  Since the OP has 300 to spend, might as well recommend him Pro 900s instead which IMO is a much better can.

 

If the OP isn't afraid of DIY, he can even mod some Fostex T50RPs.  Of the modded ones I did try, some were pretty decent.  It will run you ~100 total and supposedly sound better than HD650s.  Amping will be an issue but you save so much money that you can get a decent amp.  Might as well go for an NFB-12.

It's pretty hard to discern what the OP wants he says he wants full size but lists a pair of on ears (hd25). He says he wants forward mid range and lists the Denon. He says no more than $350 and lists the HD650. I've never heard it but maybe this would work:
