My brother's birthday is coming up soon and i could do with some help finding him a gift but something practical that he'll use while he works. He Dj's at night as well as running two small businesses during the day, he's also a musician playing multiple instruments but primarily the bass & electric guitar so i'd like to find him something he can use during his DJ work or something he'd find handy when playing in his band. I'll be getting him a pair of new headphones for Christmas so that's covered but yeah, something practical a DJ can use to improve the quality of his work or just makes things easier and fun :)

He DJ's with a laptop so a record bag wouldn't be useful

i won a bet on the boxing last night so i used the cash to buy him the Sennheiser Hd 215 as they're a good all round headphone for a DJ at a price i can afford especially after last night lol cheers for the help i know he'll be thrilled with it as his current pair are pretty cheap and he's had to glue part of them together at least twice, so this will be a step up lol

Hell I'd buy him Traktor if he's not already using it. If you can't do that, I'd at least give him a gift card to Guitar Center.

£50 (80 USD), eh? Damn. I'd get em a gift card to Guitar Center at least. For £50 you could get him a pair of nice Sennheisers. All the mixers and stuff are like £140 ($225) at least.

yeah i've been looking at getting him a pair of Creative Sigma's as i have the wireless Tactic recon's and they're great so hoping they'll be good wired headphones for him as they seem pretty similar in design to the Tactic Recon's but are Sennheisers a particular make DJ's go for?

I mean Sennheisers are a good brand, but most DJ's go for anything that has a swivel design and has good Lows and Mids. That for me is Audio-Technica.

quite like the Sennheiser Hd 215 very good design and good reviews think he'd love them! But they're a few years old now, i had a look on the Sennheiser website and there's a Hd 205 model with the same rotating cup. It costs about half the Hd215 so that leads me to believe they're not as good at all?

Do they have another model with the rotating cup that's somewhat newer?

Maybe a iTunes gift card that way he can get apps if he has a iPod or iPhone such as the ikaosolator or purchase music he could use to DJ.

Extra XLR cable, it is a simple gift but you can never have enough of them, especially if you move the mics around a lot.

Or if you want something that is pretty much universal for almost everyone on earth, then go with a decent external or internal hard drive (you can get a nice 1TB for around $50, they could use it for backup, or if you know which hard drive is in their system, then get an extra one and get them on a raid 1 for extra data security/ redundancy and improved read speeds.

going with audio processing equipment is also great but you generally have to own a few cartels and oil companies to have the extra cash to get someone higher end audio equipment.
