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?

Heya,
 
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,
