+1. Try a few if at all possible.
Audio technica ATH-M50's are a frequently recommended set - I like mine plenty.
I'd recommend looking at Closed, full sized headphones - a common type - that way you can get a set you like new or used and listen to them in a variety of settings
- they won't leak sound like open or semi-open designs.
No matter what headphone/earphone you use, the EQ on the GK combo will probably be able to boost lows enough to distort most headphones - if not that then your ears.
Try to avoid headphones that really accentuate certain frequencies - like a certain very pricey, gaudy, prevalent beet oriented brand - If you want my 2c look for monitoring rather than Hi-Fi headphones.
As with all listening - watch the levels. Tinnitus and hearing loss really suck.
