This is about it. I know it's pretty hard since a lot of headphones have a "v" shaped response but i hope that someone can help me find something that is suitable.
To be sure we understand what you want, you basically want something with forward mids, and less forward bass/treble. That's "N" to me.
If that's the case, I would suggest you really just get a flat headphone and equalize the treble and bass down a touch and you'll have what you're looking for. If you want it to be as close to that as possible on a headphone, it's going to be hard to find that really. There's plenty of headphones that have shy bass, but they usually have slightly bright treble with those forward mids.
The first headphone that I think of that has a stock "N" sound is the Fostex T50RP unmodded. It sounds like nothing but mids.
Otherwise, maybe look into some of these:
Koss DJ PRO 100
And again, maybe just slightly equalize bass/treble to achieve the sound you're looking for.
