I can tick all those boxes with the beyerdynamic DT880 except isolation. the Shure SRH940 is a good cheaper alternative though. Bugden Audio in Canada sell Fischer Audio products.

im on my phone and cant quite get to the site. bbb also rates them an F?

im also thinking the akg hd 272s? how do those compare to the 880s? if the price drops on boxing day, the 880s are definitely going to be considered but i dont know how id fair without the isolation. i liked open cans when im on the mic but not liking the hearing of everything else.

thanks for the suggestion

I seriously can't make up my mind now. I'm looking for something better then the 555s, and based on the frequency response of the 598, it seems like a lot of the cans that I've been suggested sound similar?

I dunno how to interpret those charts correctly though.

I'm going to add to the list of "extreme detail". I would love a can that is so detailed, that it picks out all the bad on mp3 rips.

That really depends on the quality of MP3 files. On some files, I can tell the dynamic range has been completely screwed over by the compression and everything just sounds so flat on my Sennheiser HD600 but there are MP3 files that I've converted from the same source CD that are really indistinguishable from both the CD and the FLAC rip.

Doesn't exist unless you're buying electrostatic and that kind of stuff

If you're looking for 'extreme detail', I think you're more looking for a can that has lots of treble

eh no and no. There are plenty of dynamic transducer headphones that have high amounts of detail. e.g. Sony SA5000, beyerdynamic DT880 or higher end such as the beyerdynamic T1, Sennheiser HD800, Audeze LCD2.
Both are far from treble heavy. there are things such as bass detail e.g. distinguishing between different basslines, the timing of those bass lines etc...

What do you think is the closest to the DT 880s that are also closed back? Are the 940s the best I'm going to get in the price range?

DT 770 PRO's sound pretty decent good base and closed
