The original "updates" thread spanning April 1 -> May 31st is available here. It was getting a little unwieldy with 100+ replies. June 1st Update As you can see we're currently in "pre-order" status for the HD6XX headphones, with an expected ship time of June 30th. Over the past two months, Sennheiser has been cranking out units of the HD6XX as quickly as they safely can (while maintaining the highest quality standards). With the global pandemic still present, production facilities, freight operations, customs and warehousing are severely impacted so everything takes longer than "normal". While we have a quoted date of June 30th, we've been working behind the scenes to try to expedite this process. The current plan that is being executed is that half of our order will be completed around June 12th, and then it'll be loaded onto a plane and flown to New Jersey so that we can ship units to you sooner. There are plenty of snags that can happen along the way, but the hope is we'll get as many as 1500 units earlier than the June 30th (expected, not guaranteed!) ship date of the entire 3000 unit order. As of June 1st, there have been about 600 units of the 1500 sold, so if you want to get a spot on the earlier shipment, you should place your order sooner rather than later. We sell anywhere from 100 to 300 of these per day... I will continue to update this thread as more information becomes available. Please check back! June 1st Update #2 Our plan may be foiled- the 1500 units may not be able to be air-shipped, we'll get more details in the coming days. June 2nd Update: Alright, as always, plans change pretty frequently! What's looking like the newest situation is we're going to have 750 units at our warehouse by June 9th. So those will likely ship in the days shortly thereafter. We've managed to move up the timeline on another 2000+ units, but the exact dates are unclear right now. Probably something in the range of June 23-25th (ish). June 8th Update: Delivery is scheduled for tomorrow on our early shipment of 750 units. Those orders should ship on the 10th or 11th. The rest of the order is still on track for around June 23rd. June 9th Update: Truck arrived this morning. We should be shipping out 750 units in the next two days. Everything else still on track for June 23rd so get your order in soon so you can make sure you get a spot of that shipment. Otherwise you'll be waiting for the next shipment which is scheduled for the end of July. June 10th Update: Started shipping the early units today, didn't get them all done, the remainders of the early-batch should be shipping out tomorrow. June 11th Update: All of the early units have shipped, if you don't have a tracking number already, you'll be in the June 23rd group. Latest we've heard is June 23rd is still the expected date, will update you next week to make sure that's still moving as scheduled. June 15th Update: Units have arrived at Sennheiser USA, and are now being loaded onto a truck and sent to us. There's a decent chance it gets to us before the end of the week, in which case we'll start shipping them immediately. The wait is almost over. Reminder that this shipment will cover all existing pre-orders, plus about a week's worth of additional sales. If you miss out on this round, you'll be waiting until end of July for the next shipment. June 17th Update: Sennheiser hasn't given us tracking yet, so we're not sure what the status of our shipment is. It's looking less likely we'll get it before the weekend. Will provide another update as soon as we get more info. June 18th Update: We've got a tracking number and the headphones are scheduled to arrive (estimated) on June 22nd. Orders will be shipped to customers shortly after that!! June 22nd Update: Shipment has arrived, we'll start shipping today or tomorrow. New orders will ship (nearly) immediately. June 24th Update: Pretty much all of the pre-orders from the past 3 weeks have shipped. The last hundred or so should be done in the next couple of hours. The most recent buyers (June 23rd onwards) will be shipping today/tomorrow, and we're back to smooth sailing. June 25th Update: All the pre-orders from the past 3 weeks have been shipped. Any orders you place from now (until we run out of stock) will be shipped out in 1-5 business days (mostly 1-2 business days, but sometimes they get behind). There's about 300 units left in stock (ignoring those already set aside for past orders), and then people will need to wait until the next shipment in mid-July... (that basically means we're gonna be sold out again in the few days or so)... July 1st Update: Happy Canada Day! And also... we're sold out again.... :( Now accepting pre-orders for our next shipment, scheduled to arrive July 19th, and we'll likely be shipping around July 24th. If you're on the fence, I suggest ordering (you can always cancel it, or you can refund them after you get them). We've had multiple people asking to "reverse" their cancelled transactions, unfortunately we can't do that.

my shipment still not returned to you, how a trash company you are! , some people ordered after me and they got their shipment ( the same country), and you messaged me to evaluate your customer service agent? Seriously?! I want a refund as soon as possible, and yes delete my comment so people can see how bad your customer service are!

I have the $220 Sennheiser HD-6XX and also the $160 HiFiMAN HE-4XX headphones. The HD-6XX bass is loose (cannot be EQed away). The HE-4XX treble a little forward (easily corrected with a touch of EQ). Both compared off the 3.5mm jack of an iPad. What else is there in this sort of price range that is the perfect balance between these two?

People have been saying that these ship to India. The price listed on here is USD. Customs taxes and VAT are calculated at the local office when you pick them up

Was just about to place the order, no shipping to Australia, any reason behind this? I just bought the Cavalli Tube Hybrid amp on here last month so I don't know if this is covid related? Some things will ship here but others won't?

I already got my HD6XX from the first released so I didn't keep an eye on the price since, and I paid 199 usd plus whatever P&H it was. I remember I got an email back a while ago (easter sale may be) from A2A that they got the HD6XX and HD58X on sale... and I check back this morning it's back at just shy of 400 for this Co-lab model. If you were looking at the 660S which is supposedly newer/ improved successor to the HD650 then that is now selling for 600+ To say should you get it or is it worth it, I don't have an answer to that. Sure, if you wind back the clock, about two decades ago around the Y2K, the HD650 could may be the most sort after headphone, along with the DT880 (premium) Edition and AKG K701, these three collectively makes up the " holy grail " / trinity of the headphone summit. A lot has changed since, heck I lost count if you ask me how many prime minister has changed baton, personal audio has taken off, smart phone replacing DAP, newer material, newer driver technology etc ... This HD6XX, for a 199 I paid, is alot of headphone, it's fun, engaging, popular and piece of history (being it based on HD650), is this my endgame headphone? Not exactly. Did I regard it? No. (Off the record, if you are after the HD660S and jump on YT, look up all the popular channels and reviews, the rumours is there is a different model which drop/ A2A also sells and after modding they will sounds almost identical. )

Finally got mine, wasn't expecting to pay $50 CAD extra for customs.... Cool, at this point I've spent just over $400 for Drop branded HD650s... I literally may as well have bought them new and not waited 2 months to be honest, you guys really need to make this clear at checkout...... I receive dozens of international packages a month, never have I been asked to pay for customs....Especially asked to go to a post office I can't choose during a world wide pandemic. Super irresponsible if you ask me

Did you read his comment clearly? Its quite obvious that the package was delivered to the closest post office, and had an extra $50 customs charge on top. I mean, he typed it IN the comment you're replying to. Are the MassDrop employees leaving replies here as cover, or what?

lol, i am in no way affiliated with drop - and there's no need for all the salt. depending on where you get your headphones shipped to, you may or may not pay a sales tax. i didn't pay VAT when shipping to europe, so i expect to pay custom fees at my post office. i have no idea what @EhRabz paid when they bought their 6xxs, hence my comment. i love the fact that you guys are complaining about paying $50 extra for a pair of headphones that cost you $220 instead of $600 hahaha.

I ordered on 7/1, before the sellout (they were in stock). My order status says "Reserved for shipment". I'm just confirming that means I was able to reserve a pair before the sell out that happened later in the day?

Is there any way to find an expected delivery date? Ordered from Canada on the 24th, and it has been saying "In transit to destination country" for the past few days.

google your DHL tracking number, use first link, it will give you a Canada Post tracking number. Drop is kinda shitting the bed with their tracking. DHL SUUUUUUUUUCKS for canadians.

For those that power these through a DAC/Amp connected top their computer, what volume level do you set the volume at in Windows? I run them though a Schiit Hel, and I'm trying to find optimal settings.

When I turn Windows volume up all the way I feel the gain is too high and hurts my ears even at lower volumes with both the headphones and my external powered speakers, both connected to the Hel. It sounds too "bright", if that makes sense. It's my first DAC/Amp and I don'tr know if it's unique to the Hel or what. Even at the fault/low gain setting my ears rings and feel fatigued after listening if I have it up to 100%.

I saw online a reference to these being $200? I guess that must have been on a previous drop or some kind of special.

Well, the way I look at it is that I joined this site because they had supposed special deals because of the mass buys they did. If I can buy from another place that has actual phone support and people you can speak to for relatively close price, then that's what I do. If something drops here at what I consider to be a can't pass up price, then I'll go with it and deal with the only email support and things like that. If the support is cut back, the price needs to be also. And if the whole point of mass buys for lower prices means only a smaller discount, then I will just wait until I need something rather than buying because I can't pass it up. Everyone is going to have their own thoughts. I just hope that as time goes on, they don't lose site of what got them a large base and they refocus on what's important. The concept is sound, and I consider them to be a good company.
