    Not sure if they're supposed to sound this way but songs sound very boring (like this forum now) listening through these headphones, is this normal? Can someone explain what is happening here.

    Its a more linear neutral sound compared to the hyped hifi equipment you are used to. You will get used to it.
    The idea is to make it sound good on these and then it will translate good on other equipment as well.
    Also the 660S treble wont extend as far as 600 and 650 so if you can, trade em for the hd600, they are far more used for music production.

    Some headphones are tweaked with a smiley curve, some are more about actual fidelity to the sound/signal.

    They sound neutral for a damn good reason... Go mix on Dre Beats or EarPods like Skrillex if you prefer hyped cans.
