    Beats Solo 2 a little light on treble?

    So, I picked up a pair of Beats Solo 2 on a whim, because I'm looking for a cheap, disposable $100-$150 headphone. I was expecting this headphone to be a typical V-shaped, "exciting" headphone, but I'm actually finding the treble to be a bit laidback. Am I crazy? Or is this how the Solo 2...

    So, I have a Matrix M-Stage Amp + DAC stack (so, the DAC is the standalone, not the cheap one that comes with the USB version of the M-Stage amp), with a pair of Sennheiser HD-650's.   I also have a really cheap pair of powered computer speakers by Altec Lansing. Is there any way I can use...
