hi, im looking for an amp that will boost DT440 from MP3 or Ipod outdoors.
my budget is 40$, but im not really looking for quality atm, so as cheap as it can get and still works.

any suggestions?
thanks =)

Yep - you are in Fiio territory. Fortunately, for fullsize Beyers, the 440s are fairly easy to drive and you dont need a whole lot more than that. If you can solder and know a little about electronics, a CMOY might be right up your alley. There are a couple of Fiio models and quite a few threads here, but this is the word from someone who was initially dismissive:

FiiO, the $8.50 Headphone Amp

Personally, I hope to point something with a bit more grunt at the 440s within the next couple of months, but XMAS isnt an easy time to find 'spare' cash.
