Well O2 and your computers soundcard probably both measure flat. So they sound "the same".    In fact they don't. With O2 you get much lower distortion and more gain. Listen to some uncompressed music with some peaks, it should become REALLY noticeable. Try playing some (uncompressed) real hard hitting drums for example. Without amp there is not much dynamics and the HD600 will sound like a pair of cheap cans. With O2 the HD600 will sound just as big as the drums were...
How about a pair of K141's (K142HD is the consumer version)   Same drivers as K240 I guess.
That's BS in my opinion. If they sound bad out of the package, they sound bad. Maybe they are broken!
You won't notice a difference with compressed material. Yes the HD600 sounded excellent right out of my cellphone too.   Play some high dynamic classical, or theatrical (with some bass) and no, your PC or cellphone can't power the HD600. They will sound anemic.
Volume knob position doesn't have anything to do with the actual power of the amplifier.
buy some acetone, (nail polisher may do)   beware it will also clean off any paint on the surface and could even melt plastic. 
KRK Rokit 8. Those go pretty low though. But have you ever actually measured the frequency response in your room? Without KRK's Ergo they probably have some 10-20dB peaks here and there. Far from hi-fidelity.   I've tried using a pair of 8" hifi speakers for my computer before.
I hate single subs, but in a different way.  Two subs and more, ideally you should have 4 to have the best frequency response in a room. Single sub can't just give you a flat response in a typical room without some serious eqing, and even then multiple subs are better. But that was a different subject altogether. I'd say that a good 2.1 or 2.2 is often much better than 2.0 systems in typical conditions. In a good 2.1 setup you can't hear the sub, it just blends in to the...
Looks like 1st gen M-audio BX5's to me. More interested in the Tannoy sub, never seen them make any good subs.
they can't reproduce below 80hz bass with any authority.
