Default Heavy duty drivers needed

Hey everyone, I have a pair of Peltor optime 98 sound protection muffs and I would like to use them as Dj cans. Can anyone recommend a driver that has very good sound quality, can handle 2-3 watts of input power and is around 32 ohms? Thanks for any help

Fostex T50rp drivers fit the description, but are 70 ohms.

Thanks Vaughn ,I took a look around that and several other sites but no luck finding replacement driver listings. The only thing I've seen that comes close are 2" fullrange drivers from several manufacturers but they lack low end (< 150hz). This is proving harder than I thought. Anyone else?

You won't be able to buy just the drivers but at $74 shipped for the entire headphone (or $37 per driver) they seem pretty reasonable to me. That is when they are back in stock!

Thanks for the link, do you have any experience with these,regarding sound quality and power handling? They look like nice units.
