Not quite sure where to ask this, but I know there's some DJ's / Producers in this thread, and I'm thinking of getting an entry level mixer myself. I was looking for something cheap like the Numark MixTrack, but then I came across this locally. It looks to me like a Numark Mixdeck, but the price seems too good to be true. Just wanting another opinion, is this a good deal?

You should pretty much ignore any listed prices and MSRP for headphones.

They're listed at 350 USD on AKG's website, £350 on their UK website. Based on that kind of listing, £250 street price is very typical for something that's been on the market for long enough. That said, this indicates that the price is lower than it has been generally in the past on Amazon:

I don't mean that it's a bad deal, but it's not like you stumbled upon something extraordinary that must be acted upon ASAP.

First Impression
Keep in mind I'm coming from a pair of 990 pros.
When I first started listening to them, I decided to give a first listen using no EQ at all. And these things are really bassy. I had my 990s at a +6 EQ setting usually on my Fiio E17, and these 770s have that much bass with no EQ.
I've been listening for maybe 3 hours and I haven't felt the need to touch any EQ at all. These headphones give off some mean bass, without loosing the performance of the highs and mids.
I was a little worried coming from an open headphone that I would loose the open, airy feeling. I can tell next to no difference at all in that area with these headphones, and I don't regret choosing a closed headphones. They provide much nicer isolation than my 990s and It's great not having to worry about my listening environment when blasting some tunes.
Overall I'm impressed with these cans and don't regret making the switch. I'll probably leave them on overnight to get some burn in hours then hear the difference in the AM.
Do your ears start to sweat/get hot after long sessions?

No sweat, but they do definitely get hot. Certainly it's part from the warm temperatures in the summer time, but when I do take them off it feels relieving in terms of heat.

you should listen to it on some more bassy headphones like the DT770-DT990 or HD 650s, techno just sounds amazing on them.
