I'm only an amature/beginner DJ, so don't want anything too complicated/difficult to learn. I just want to ...

it depends on your budget, as you can spend a lot of money on really good quality headphones. But I got a pair of "Numark HF125" headphones for under £10 and have been very impressed with them.

Especially the crossover bits, where the the 808 boys would just take the mic out of Matt all the time (l...

It'll be the 4th time that i've seen 808 State... I can't wait!!

A DJ set, not a live set, though... :)
Sorry for posting in the wrong section, i knew that it was a DJ set on Saturday, rather than a "LIVE" set.

I have experienced both and enjoyed both!!
