First hand experience with D2000. +1

 

OP what are your music preferences and closed or open phones?

Any Grado.

My recommendations:

 

Lower-budget closed-back >> Audio Technica ATH-M50

Higher-budget closed-back >> Denon D2000

 

Lower-budget open-back >> Sennheiser HD598

Higher-budget open-back >> Beyerdynamic DT990 32 ohm


Also, to back up bbophead, any Grado.

 

Of course, everything in this thread will only be an idea. Research what we suggest before buying!

I've been able to drive even a 250 Ohm Beyer from a phone and creative mp3 player to (IMO) a reasonable volume (loud enough to drown out transport sounds on the bus...

 

Or any grado, yes.
