this is a problem in my head . I am buying a German product made in Ireland for 200 dollars ( great deal ) , but since someone did not bother to think to open small warehouse in EU i have to pay 106 dollars tax and customs and post office.( Croatia ) So that is more than half for nothing. then i have to wait 5 months to get the product ( that is if another drop do not extend waiting time ). Produt will be package then send over Atlantic then repackege , packege again and send over Atlantic again . Then if something is wrong with headphones i need to send them ( but where ? )and just spend money for nothing again . Really like to have them but ... not smart what to do . They are legends I mean but they are made cheaper now and as i can see it .they will just pump them out to send them to customers so to massive production and things will go wrong . Massdrop find a partner in Europe and bust your sales !!! I will have to sleep on this but think if i will go for new legend HD800S
If you have money for the HD800S, you should just buy that instead. Looks like you already joined the drop anyways, so I guess the extra wait time and fees for the HD6XX weren't so much of a problem after all.
well it is reservation still for 8 days :) .but I sleep it over and going for HD6xx now and will just save longer for HD800s ( maybe price will drop down the line ). So in year or two will have a great lifetime combo of Sennheiser headphones . I am using HD555 with Asus Xonar essence one musses edition so i think this will be great update for now for the price . Thanks
You're right, it's incredibly easy and cheap to just open a small warehouse in EU. Can't believe MD didn't think of that!
Or that or make a deal with some shipping company in Europe .Ok I do not know how much unit are shipping to EU buyers and does the math is working in their calculation . but will be great for us in Europe to save some money for something else . This deal they made is great and working for me , but other not so much . when i pay everything for import I can find that price range in here. Hope they find some solution
Same problem here. Would love to grab one of these, but the import tax is just insane, especially since these are shipped from Ireland to the US and then sold from there back to the EU.
yes it is, I still belive that something can change about that
