Denon AH-D2000 (25-Ohm)
Audio Technica ATH-A900X (40-Ohm)
AKG K550 (32-Ohm)
Sennheiser HD598 (open) (50-Ohm)
First hand experience with D2000. +1
OP what are your music preferences and closed or open phones?
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!
