$13 shipping makes this useless. Very unfortunate.

Hello. Regarding the shipping cost - where are they going?

$13 is for Belgium, I imagine the rest of Europe as well. Presuming these are shipped from the USA, that probably doesn't include import fees. Or is this DDP shipment?

So, I checked on the USPS website, and the cost to ship this package to you is $13.50, so Massdrop is actually absorbing $.50 of the postage I have attached a screenshot for your reference.

Thanks for taking the time to look that up, but you must see how that information changes nothing. There's no way anyone who understands international shipping would buy this if they aren't located in the USA, especially if the shipping costs aren't DDP. The numbers just don't add up, even if Massdrop absorbs $0.50 (it's nice, but c'mon). Right now for my location it's $35 MSRP with a $13 price cut, plus $13 dollars shipping, with another potential 20 - 30 EUR possible import/customs fees. The eventual cost could easily fall between $55 - $65. Massdrop needs a European fulfillment center, I think that's the only real solution.

Understood. I was merely trying to show you that MD was not gouging you. They are not making anything on shipping.

I see. That's not what I was implying with my first comment, but I understand your response now. I'm honestly just frustrated with not being able to participate.

Totally agree, bigger and heavier items like headphones are often below $20 for shipping and earpads are $13 to $25, that just stinks.
