...in which clarity, isolation (read: closed), durability and comfort are all very important.

I haven't, but I think the Thunderpants would be outside my price range.  Under $200 would be great.



Wait, you'd go for a modded can that you wouldn't mod?
 
I would of said modded T50RP, but then you don't want them modded.
 
Under $200
neutral
Comfortable
Closed
Unmodded
Easy to drive
 
I think you have WAY too much on your plate. The only thing I can think of is the HD598, and that's way too colored to be used for monitoring. and Open too.

the fischer FA003 is a very good choice, fits with all your requirements plus it doesn really need to me amplified.
 
clarity: almost on pair with the K601 (K601 with a good amp) but a tad less.
isolation: I was impressed by it, more than the HD25 if that tells you anything.
durability: I havent had them long but the build quality seems to be good. detachable cable.
comfort: super comfortable and includes extra pads, velvet even more comfortable.
 
they also come with a well padded case for transportation.

James, I give you 6 points for your Andy pictures.  Awesome

OP, i think the K271 would be worth a punt if you like the K601.
