So if sennheiser are the ones that have dropped the price (not taking anything away from massdrops Profits) then why is international shipping now at $15 when massdrop were going to ship them for free ?? Can someone please answer me this as it's either 1. Massdrop want to make some more money from international buyers which they wouldn't be making from the $250 or 2. Massdrop are lying about the sennheiser price increase in the first place and they just wanted to make some more money off it and now they have dropped it still want to recoup money from shipping? Either way it's ridiculous

Don't buy if you can't stomach 6mths wait after paying. Simple.

Yeah, no trust, don't support. That's all.
Of course, by claiming MD lied to all of us (although Will was upfront in disclosing what happened behind the scenes), you're just stirring up mud in clear waters...
One more thing, you don't represent me when you said "everyone". MD been straight up so far for me.

So you can explain to me about the shipping cost change then? If your from the US then it doesnt affect you so obviously your not going to be curious

I'm not from US and not working at MD. Since it doesn't ship to where I live, I need to employ a freight forwarder in US if I want to buy it, decided not to because I already have 1 from first drop and don't need another. But if this is my first pair, yes, I would go through the hassle because I want it and has figured out how to get it without whining and expect MD to cater to my whim.
So, the best I can do is to make an assumption how the shipping cost works. I'm sure you would have reached a reasonable and acceptable conclusion if you weren't crying bloody murder to begin with.
Drop #1: HD6XX at $199.99, free shipping to US. For everyone else, $15 flat. *Yay! Best deal ever!*
Drop #2: Due to increased cost at Sennheiser's end, HD6XX at $249.99. Free shipping to listed countries only due to distribution agreements. *cue the screaming, wailing and gnashing of teeth*
Drop #2.1: MD and Senn offers HD6XX at $199.99, free shipping to US only, $15 to listed countries. - Point 1: Basically, everyone enjoys a reduction of price ranging $35-$50 overall. - Point 2: Taking into account $15 of shipping, I assume the $35-$50 was going to Senn for increase of cost.
So, either you take this gesture of goodwill from MD and Sennheiser, or shut up and keep your money. No one is twisting your arms to buy and definitely no one is LYING to you. Gawd!

« then why is international shipping now at $15 when massdrop were going to ship them for free ?? »
It's hard for me t understand why you're making such a big deal with 15 $ shipping fees. I ordered a used item on ebay, and guess what was written in the description:
« Due to new International postal rate increases, the minimum International shipping fee will be $13.99 for shipments of 8 ounces and less. »
All that for an item I bought for less than 9 $. As the item is now made in China and not too reliable my option if I wanted a good one was to buy used one made in Scandinavia.

MD said that it was sennheiser that increased the price in the first place and sennheiser eventually lowered it, no "gesture of good will" from massdrop in fact there making more money from it OR they were lying in the first place And they increased the price. Jesus christ. Do you not understand what I'm saying or something.

I give up. Lesson learnt: If you argue with id!()%$, they will beat you with experience. End of the day, please do not buy this headphone. Keep your $15 shipping fees. Peace out.

Yes. It's the other thing I bought on ebay - e. g. a compass - that is now made in China, Not the HD 6XX.

Actually, I think you learned one of Dilbert's Laws. Not sure what is the number of this one. It should be written like this if I am remembering well :
« Never argue with idiots. They drag you down to their level, then beat you with experience. »
