    Skrillex is too cool or headphones. Did you listen to him play? I wouldn't need headphones either if I stopped and started the songs.

    As for the others, I'm too tired to watch them, but I.E.M.
    I prefer headphones however.

    I say 12 posts before this turns into a Skrillex thread.

    Without a monitor, you get to find out what your mix sounds like at the same time as the audience, which equates to bad mixes and bad DJing in my book. It's your last line of defence and a valuable tool.

    And I disagree with this completely. So, the answer is that its just personal preference.

    Why?
    What is the advantage of not being able to hear what your mix is going to sound like, before you play it to other people?
    How often do you cue up a tune in your headphones to hear which remix to play?
    How often do you cue the mix up in your headphones, and the two together remind you of a better song to play?
    ---
    What happens when you bring the next song in and the keys clash horribly?
    With headphones - you select a different track
    Without headphones - your audience hears your shitty, shitty mix

    ...it just seems nonsensical to get rid of something will prevent you failing, and the only thing that can guarantee (if there is any doubt) that the thing you are about to present to an audience will sound good.

    I know Steve Angello has gotten a lot of criticism for not wearing headphones. Lot of people called him out for pre-recording his mixes, he touched on it in his DJMag interview for the Top 100. I dont know if any of it is true but I do know that he doesnt always/rarely wears headphones.

    Steve angello = bad example

    Roger Sanchez + dj sneak + digweed = good examples
