Amp sounds better through headphones

So i own a peavey Vypyr 30. When i listen to this amp through my headphones the tone is 10x better than through the amps speaker or even through the 4x12 cab i run it through.

The headphones make the sound much more compressed and can attain much higher gain, the notes are clearer and sustain better too. Why could this be and is this normal?
