beat pro headphones
sell them. they are shite for any kind of music work. i don't know how much they go for om ebay, but you should be at least halfway to a decent midicontroller with that money.
DON'T go buying a poor quality mixer and secondhand CDJ's, you'd just be wasting your money and here's why.. well first of all, you can't "use your mixer with your computer" without spending additional ££ on an audio interface with more than one output. a split mono-jack cable won't do.
So then you have 2 possible scenarios
Scenario 1. You find out you like doing this, you'll very soon want to upgrade, cus you reach the limitations on cheap stuff quickly.
scenario 2. you don't like dj'ing afterall.
in either scenarios you're stuck with shitty equipment that nobody but fucking Nou/Joss would buy. But he lives in his moms basement, and has to pay rent in addition to doing the dishes, so big chance off-loading your crap on him. (if it only was literal crap, then he'd be quick to pay though)
My advice to you, I've played for like 14 or 15 years now, vinyl, cdj's, fucking dual tape decks, you name it... Get yourself a NI Kontrol S2. I think it's at $449 now and comes with the softwa Traktor Pro 2.5 (and not a stripped down lite version either), built-in Audio interface. The buttons and faders feel pretty nice, and the jog wheels are the best I've felt on a controller. To say it is of Pioneer build standard is not far-fetched at all. So yah, you won't find better bang for buck with better resale value than that. 4 siriez.
