Default use closed headphone open with current source amp?

Hello all!

I have a pair of excellent (but big) 300 Ohm headphone drivers, obviously for sealed enclosure.
The problem: I find they are already big enough without.
My question:
Can I use them open with a current source amp?
And can anybody recommend a schematic?

Greets, Oliver

I tried 380 Ohm resisters in series. Bass is there, but it makes an ugly middle wave radio sound.
