Generally, detail means mids*. Especially since HD650s have them a bit scooped, which does sound pleasant and powerful, but not particularly detailed. The high end isn't too strong in general as it is, so I'd start by taking the upper bass (125 or 170hz depending on whether you're using the ISO or "Winamp" bands (can be switched in preferences) down a bit and see if it helps. If that's not enough try increasing the 1k band, and maybe the adjacent ones too, but make sure to reduce the preamp accordingly to avoid clipping. Of course the winamp eq isn't fine enough for surgical work, but high quality phones shouldn't need it.

*Or overtones in general. Perceived lack of detail can also be caused by narrow dips in the frequency response, or distortion, but neither of those should be a problem here.
