I'm not sure why people keep trying to find the one Beats/Monster headphone that actually sounds good.   Imagine if Sennheiser, AKG or Beyer just put out nothing but horrible sounding, disposable, spraypaintjob headphones for 5 years. They would just go out of business. Nobody would give them 2nd, 3rd, 100th chances release after release. They would just fall off the map and cease to be discussed.
Stellar build quality and very deep, powerful (yet somehow not boomy) bass, but I departed with mine after realizing I couldn't really listen to them for more than 20 minutes at a time without listening fatigue. The HFI 580s are the headphones I've owned that come closest to the sound signature of an SPL car audio system and Beyer is probably the only other brand occupying the same price levels with such solid construction.   Like MalVeauX said, very love it/hate it...

In a word, no.
Beyerdynamic makes a single-ear version of the DT 250   However, your options would increase if you just looked at DJ headphones with a mono switch, which would have the exact same effect as a single-ear headphone (all of the sound would be present in both ears rather than stereo channels).
You'll grow out of it.
I actually don't like the 600/650 very much (I like some brightness), so I'm not saying it's blasphemy to equalize it.  It's just that it's like living in a city full of burger joints, finding the one sushi place, and telling them to go buy some ground beef and make you a burger. It just seems to me one could save time (and perhaps money) by just choosing one of the hundreds of pre-EQ'd headphones out there (burgers).   The 600s/650s are designed to sound this...
Any headphone or speaker that's very flat will sound "veiled" because all of the sound is crowded into the same levels. Just like erratic treble spikes give us a sense of clarity.   The entire point of the HD600 & HD650 is textbook flatness so I personally think it's kind of redundant to try to "cure" them of the same thing that gave them their pricetag, but whatever suits your fancy.
I found my DT 770s perfect for portable use when I had them. That said, maybe check out the Sony V6? Cheap, easy to drive, bass is woofy without being absurd, treble is bright but not painful, very portable.
  Nice understatement
