Closed headphones with strong treble?

    I've been looking at the Shure SRH940 and the KRK KNS 8400 - but I've read soundonsound reviews of both of them which said that they've both got great mid-range response and ok (not bad by any means, but not stand-out) treble. I've heard similar things said of the AKG K272 HD and 271.
    Without venturing into Ultrasones (which are, imo, over-priced, and have good treble but also way too much bass) - is there any closed headphone in the $150-300 price range that really excels in treble reproduction?

    Shure SRH940
    AKG K272 HD
    Ultrasone HFI 780
    Grado SR60i
    Beyer DT660
    AudioTechnica A700X
    Beyer T70 (used, $300, on Amazon)
    Also note, you can simply equalize the treble on any headphone to be stronger. This makes it so much easier to get what you're looking for.
    Very best,
