    If I want to stream a song between several devices, what is the best technology to do so?

    I mean, a song is being played on 3 devices at once, for example

    I mean, streaming between 2 or more iOS devices

    Device A has it's song, now I want to stream this song to Device B, and C.
    So they will be able to listen to this song also, but on the device

    I assume you mean some sort of iOS device (iPod, iPad, iPhone) then you would need to write the audio streaming code yourself. Typically you would need some way to connect the devices. If its a one to one you could use bluetooth to pass the data back and fourth. If its multiple devices. you would need to create an app that is a client server based app where your source becomes the server and the other devices connect to receive the data over sockets. This is a trivial thing to do on a wifi connection but when you start trying to do it ad hoc you have to start creating your devices as a mobile hotspot. This can be done and there are samples. However the default hotspot works as socks proxies and does not allow for simple bonjour connectivity.
