Still not shipping to far east? Why?
Will already answered this. It's because of Sennheisers trade deals with retailers in Asia.
I'm pretty sure the countries left out the shipping list are because of a Sennheiser distribution agreement. I saw one of the Massdrop employees mention it in reply to one of the earlier comments. And it makes sense since I'm sure that HD650 sales will drop in countries that had this drop. Distributors would hate that and probably had that clause written into their contracts after after the last HD6XX drop. Thats why it ships to fewer countries this time around. I'm speculating about that last bit, though.
I joined the last HD700 drop. I paid the shipping cost, its alright but it ships worldwide. Why not this HD6XX? Why different treatment for different model of the same manufacturer.
Here in US., I get great deals out of Hong Kong.
It might be because Sennheiser knows that the HD6XX would sell a much larger volume than the HD700. The HD6XX will probably sell all 11,500 units and I think that the HD700 will sell about 200. 200 impacts the market much less than 11,500. So that's why the HD6XX only ships to certain countries. Again, I'm speculating here.
