Traditionally DJs use headphones. But with increasing regularity, earbuds (or more accurately inner ear monitors or IEMs) are making an appearance. For me this is largely driven by the more universal use of electronics in our lives, and wanting to slim down the amount of stuff we lug around. One pair fits all.
Acceptance of IEMs is still relatively low, and yanking HD25s from the ears of most DJs isn’t likely to happen overnight.
