I am a guitarist, pianist and music arranger and I use my Mac and Logic software to create my music. Once done, I transfer the finished article to iTunes so that I can listen to, and compare, the sound quality and volumes, of each instrument used. I am highly critical of my own music so I need to be able to listen both intently and in comfort.
These earphones [Sony MDR-V55 DJ Stereo Headphones - Black
] are, in one word, phenomenal!! I can hear every high note in a highly crisp treble whilst at the same time, hearing a smooth bass. The sound quality is brilliant and the phones are as comfortable as any I have tried.
I admit that I am surprised at the price, not because it's too high, but because, for the quality of the sound reproduction, I have never heard such for this low price range.
I cannot comment on what they would be like in a DJ environment, however, the phones cut out a lot of the surrounding sounds that normally interfere with one's listening pleasure, so I would not be surprised to hear that they work well in a music venue environment.
Very highly recommended, in fact I give them 6 stars out of 5
