What Headphones Do Top DJs Use?

Picking the right headphones is a terribly subjective thing. Not only does your choice involve the quality of the ‘phones, but on how your ears work. Everyone’s sense of hearing is slightly different, which means one set of headphones may sound great to you but pure shite to someone else.  I, for example, favour Sony and Seinnheisers and loathe Beats. Some AKGs are nice, Grados are good (but can be expensive) and I’ll do with some Sol Republics in a pinch.  And I should point out that these are are the headphones I prefer in radio and recording studios. When I used to DJ, only Sonys would do.

If you’re shopping for a new pair, you need to start somewhere, right?  How about this list of 100 top DJs and their headphone preferences? Go deeper here. (Via Chris)
