Maybe a year for sure because if they take 6months to complete shipping only then to produce another 10k units it will take even more time... What do u think??

Probably at least 6 months for another drop and yeah, a year until you'd see them in your hands :(
I didn't even really plan on joining this but then researched it a little and realized it was probably too good to pass up.

Sorry, I figured by asking that you missed it and wanted to know when you might have another chance.
Yeah, the wait is real.

Those pictures showing the four other colors were user generated. Unless Massdrop officially announces a release with new colors, the HD6XX will only be available in midnight blue.

Samsung Galaxy A3? Probably not. The Sennheiser HD600/650/6XX family of headphones need a decent amplifier to run at their full potential.

My phone has a hifi dac chip and when i pair it with my A3 it drives my dt 880 efficiently, that's y i thought may be the A3 can run the hd 6xx paying 400$ on amp and stuff is not definitely what u've learnt from massdrop - group buys - lower price and then suddenly running to buy an amp which costs twice the price of headphones

Not really, I run my HD650s on my desktop computer with a $170 Schiit Vali 2 amp, which I purchased well before learning about Massdrop. Neither my computer nor my phone (Moto Droid Turbo) drives them to their potential without an amp. No need to disparage people who buy headphone amps for usage on these headphones. They DO make a difference. If your A3 has a good DAC/amp built in, you MIGHT be fine with the HD6XX. Then again, you might try comparing your A3 to a dedicated DAC/amp setup and hear the difference yourself.

Not disparaging exactly, just saying that i can't afford hifi amps right now. Shipping to India is a bit of hassle because the customs really bother as they are nearly 50% of the price, nd A3 is the just an amplifier which i pair it with my vivo v5s

Fair enough. If the Fiio A3 powers your DT880s properly, it should be fine with HD6XX.

That's exactly what i was asking, may be the tube amps can really bring out the treble of the hd 6xx and improve the overall resolution but for now I'll manage with the A3. Some people on headfi say that the 600/650 300 ohms are easier to drive than the 250 ohm beyers. What do u think??

I personally have no experience with Beyers, but based on what I've read, the HD650s are more sensitive/efficient than the DT880s. Therefore making the Sennheisers easier to drive, despite the higher input impedance (300 ohms vs 250 ohms.)
