Relativistic Doppler Effect

            The Doppler Effect represents a sensory perception "distortion" of sound waves with regard to the hearing [auditory capability] of a human being. The emission of the sound waves remains unaltered from the source. The reception of the sound waves varies according to the movement of the source emitter.
Einstein reasoned that something similar happens with regard to light waves and
carried the analogy over from sound waves. [Albert Einstein, "On the Electrodynamics of Moving Bodies", §7. Theory of Doppler's principle and of Aberration, June 30, 1905].  The difference in velocity between sound waves and light waves, together with the distinction of the sources, probably would explain that there is no Doppler effect with light waves. Unless, this is employed to explain the distinction for the blueshift|redshift phenomena observed by astronomers.
            Logically enough if the Doppler effect occurs with regard to light waves, then the Doppler effect of sound waves is proof of "relativity" at low speeds of matter-energy [sound waves].  And, when relativity is purported to occur and be distinguishable only at high-velocities, the Doppler Effect of sound waves would prove this incorrect as a working hypothesis.
            On the one hand, today relativists appear to want to prove that relativity may be detected only at high velocities of matter-energy, yet they draw on an example that occurs at a low velocity, as in the Doppler Effect of the speed of sound, to prove their high-velocity thesis. When there should be no examples as proof at low velocities, which are near meaningless to the relativists. Proving the existence of relativity through the Doppler Effect might effectively demonstrate that there is no need for a theory of special relativity at high velocities [the speed of light in a vacuum].
