If you're planning to wear them whilst DJ-ing, you want to get custom-moulded units.

Etymotic

For general clubbing I wear the cheaper ones, but if you DJ, you want a flat attenuation, which means open-wallet surgery. I use the cheapies because they're easy to lose, and my friends have lost Etymotic - leading to much swearing.

A lot of performers opt for molded in-ear phones which have drivers built in:

Get them now.

What Justin said, especially "get them now."

The cheaper etymotics won't work if you want to DJ with them in (stick out too far), but you could conceivably do so with the custom molded ones (never done it myself, but they will fit under headphones).

If you're fighting a lot of volume from the main speakers, in-ears may be the way to go. Though not the easiest to take out & put back in when you want to listen to the mains...

I have actually played a couple of recent gigs with 'in-ears'.

Strange experience, because it's all about creating a balance between the program and the cue, which is not easy in the best of time, many DJ mixers do not have this so well worked out.

But I noticed my mixing got a lot more precise, and overall I didn't listen so loud at all, compared to using headphones and full-range stage monitors, which can literally take your ear off in a couple of minutes, especially when standing next to them while other DJs are using them at full blast...

When fitted with the 'triple-flange', the in-ear also afford you a real good level of hearing protection, and some models like mine are even fitted with a mic so that you can listen to what people are saying if you want to do so.

ymmv

In general I always wear the cheap ones, and got used to those enough that I can mix with them, not pretty but it does the job.
