I haven't found or heard of any, and it's really not a surprise
since laws of physics are 'in the way'. :)
Pistonic distortion & other issues.
But of course some closed phones sound more open than others,
and a couple I recommend for that are the AKG 550, the
Audio Technica ATH A900, and its recent upgrade the ATH A900X.

Denon D5000, ATH-W5000, but they both do not isolate that well.
Also Sony MDR-1R sound surprisingly open and spacious for its size

Sony MDR-1R. One of the reasons why I even decided to buy these. And SQ did not disappoint either :)

K550 sounds pretty opened for closed hp.
