Great Gift Ideas for Digital DJs
As the holidays creep up on us quicker then ever it seems, the guys here at DDJG thought it would be wise to throw a post up of killer gift suggestions they would love to get themselves (yes, this doubles as a blatant hint to those who know us personally :))
Lets start with some STOCKING STUFFERS…
We all know these things wear out pretty fast, and the better and more sweatier your gigs get this will hold more and more true. Having an extra set or two around is a great thing, and going from leatherette to velour can sometimes make a more comfortable headphone for longer use. Some 3rd party companies have even started supplying multiple colors.

1/4″ Locking Headphone Adapter
The Jewel of the Nile! If you have one of these, and the DJ after you lost his/hers, you are a godsend… but you will never see it again. If these were attached to us in some way, we would lose them. The locking version fits most popular models from Sony, Technics, Shure, etc.

Earphones / In-Ear Monitors
It’s no surprise that DJs love music, and they want to listen to it everywhere they go. From the bus to the gym, to pick tunes for sets or kick back on the commute, it’s always a good time for music. A quality portable pair of earphones can really come in handy.

Turntable Cartridges / Headshells
Even though you may see a lot less vinyl being played, or a laptop screen lighting up the booth, don’t dismiss the importance of a fresh pair of needles in a DJs life! Whether it’s to digitize those crates of vinyl and bring them back to life, or to for a pair of control vinyl for Serato Scratch Live or Traktor Pro, phono cartridges have remained a staple in the game.

A Proper DJ Bag
While it’s true that anything you have that fits your gear should work for the night, all things are NOT equal in the world of DJ bags. If you are a traveling DJ, in and out of airports and train stations, you’ll need something that will really hold up to the abuse of the road but also fit in the over head bins as needed. The Mono EFX 365 (pictured left) is one we at DDJG highly recommend.

Professional DJ Headphones
There are many options out there these days in the headphone world, but going with a pair from a trusted name in audio is always recommended. Try to avoid anything to flimsy, as these things tend to get abused pretty badly. A pro quality pair will probably range from $100-$300. We offer quite a selection on our site, and one of the most popular is the HDJ-1500K which is featured left, which has great sound and durability.
