Probably just an AC charger then. Depending on how bothered you are with the slower USB charging (and not being able to use the player whilst USB charging).

A lot of people get a leather/silicon case for it, or screen protectors; I just choose to be extra-careful .

Have you got some 'phones already?

Indeed, good phones will make a huge difference.

Or you could look at the Sansa Clip Plus 8gb + 16 GB microSDHC card if video isn't important

Why do they call it the D2+? Isn't it really the D2-, minus the AC charger that the D2 comes with?

- Good headphones (the Cowon ear buds are garbage)
- Headphone amp, depending on the cans you buy
- Screen protector
- Silicon or leather case

Also, you can get the line-in and line-out cables, if you are considering using it for those purposes. Line-in is for adding an external mic for recording, and line-out is for outputting videos / photos to a device with composite inputs (like a TV).

good headphones are a MUST for the D2/D2+ I would also recommend getting a case and/or screen protector my D2 recently got a little scratch that annoys the crud out of me. still, it's a good player, and if it doesn't die I will keep it for a long time.

certain headphones (especially full size) will need an amp. I have a FiiO E5 amp for my RE2, but I never use it with them, that whole "to get the best out of the Re2 you need an amp" sentiment is garbage. the D2 can boost the low end on them just fine all on it's own. I use the FiiO with my Audio Technica ATH M30, great full size cans for the price.
