anyone from the philippines get theirs yet?
Not yet. I've been to the post office too often that the lady at the counter asked for my number and opted to just send me an sms when it arrives. Haha
okay i would've been paranoid to find out that you got yours since everyone in the sea region seem to be getting their cans.
let me know when you get yours. my schiit stack arrived earlier even tho i ordered them on dec 23
starting to feel nervous about my package being stolen by those fuck nuts over at customs.
Sure, will do. I'm actually fearing for the same thing. Why does our government have to be so corrupt :\
i got a slip from the post office today
i hope you get yours soon friend
ZOMG! I dropped by the post office a few hours ago, but unfortunately the lady at the counter was probably sick as her booth is closed while the others weren't. I'll check again tom. BTW are you within Manila or at a province?
i live near naia 4 if that helps. so yeah i live pretty damn close to the post office
Hi! were you able to get your AKG K7XX already?
yeah, i have. no rattling issues but the bubbly parts i see on both diaphragms are a bit unnerving. it's like measles but for diaphragms. should i contact akg?
EDIT: i went ahead and googled forums discussing the issue. one guy in diyaudio (link below) said
"I recently ran into the same issue with my new K702 and the official reply from the AKG quality manager is that "This cosmetic phenomenon is well known and cannot entirely be avoided during production. It definitely has no impact on sound or durability"".
hopefully they're not lying about this because i don't have other AKG headphones to confirm this with.
I have them on my Austrian made Q701, less than on K7XX but they're there. It's ok with that type of layered diaphragm (K/Q 7** series).
nice! I hope i get mine soon. If there aren't any issues with the sound then I guess you don't need to bother cause I don't think they'll replace it anyway if they already said it has no impact on sound and durability. How much did you need to pay for customs? Did you receive it through regular post or was it through the EMS office? thanks!
the shady customs guy almost had me pay 1700 (about $40) but i only had like 800 ($18 or so) on me and weirdly enough he just accepted it. the receipt had 100 (roughly $2.5) as bill. so yeah, customs people.
This is why I ALWAYS have internationally shipped items delivered to my provincial address. You're more likely to get taxed in Manila than in the province. That "under the table no receipt" practice is abundant in Manila post offices, but in the province they charge you ONLY the 100 fee, as I've experienced with my past 7 shipments, 2 of which are from Massdrop.
Also, I still haven't received my AKG K7xx yet, though I did get my Just Mobile headstand a few hours ago, which is weird since the headstand was shipped on Dec 22 while my AKG was shipped on Dec 16.
Our postal services suck.
Haven't received mine either. I contacted the guy I know at the post office and he said they had a lot of packages that need to get sorted out. He was able to find 11 packages for me but none of them were from Massdrop. He's on the lookout for it though. I'll tell you when I get mine.
