I've narrowed down my options and come up with some combos. The hardest part is staying at least within sight of my $225 budget. My heart is telling me to cough up the dough for the D2/X-10 system, but that's really busting the budget.

Cowan D2 Options
Cowan D2 4GB with Klipsch X-10, ~$300
Cowan D2 4GB with Klipsch X-5, ~$250

Sansa Fuze Options
Sansa Fuze 4GB with Sennheiser CX95 ~$200
Sansa Fuze 4GB with Sennheiser CX500 ~$190

1. The CX95 & CX500 are only 16 ohms, so are probably not a good match for the D2. The X-10 & X-5 are 50 ohms, so may not match well with the Fuze.
2. How big a drop-off is there from the X-10 to the X-5? My primary listening is classic rock and the main use is for travel.

Comments & suggestions welcome. TIA
