The next production run is live! The estimated ship date for this batch is August 16.
This drop will close at 43,050 units sold.
We’re excited to announce we’ve worked with Sennheiser to continue production on the HD 6XX and launch more units! We will likely be able to open up a couple of limited quantity drops over the next few months.
The first of these runs is available today, with 1,000 units (until 42,050 units sold). The estimated ship date for this production run is August 13.
Thanks to everyone for helping us make the HD 6XX a success!
Come to papa!
Thanks for another drop
I got in at the very first job, absolutely amazing that Massdrop is up at 42,050 units in a little over a year. Thanks for bringing awesome products and hope to see more!
Will Indonesia be supported in the shipping countries?
I do not think so. I think this drop does not ship to ASEAN.
Yeah, i'm in Vietnam and pretty much every drop is unavailable. Have to use third-party services.
Thanks but How to? Which third party service do u use?
Thanks for the info.
Is the HD 6xx (650) has the same sound signature like HD 660 S? I test drove HD 660 S and like its sound signature. Too bad the HD 660 S is sold around USD 656 here in Indonesia.
Sorry, I cannot answer ur question since I do not have any of these.
That's depend on which countries you live in. I'm just using local services really.
I don't find India in the shipping list which was available during last time, the drop was active ! Any change to the shipping country list ?
The HD 660 S has a more lively, bright signature even though the treble isn’t actually louder overall, and more transparent like closer to actually having musicians performing for you. The HD 6XX is more relaxed and rounded, still detailed and natural but softer impact. They will sound like they are siblings in the same family.
I'm curious about the 660S but the price is too high for me. At least right now. I do have 6XX coming by the end of the month. 😁
No problem! Just sharing some quick impressions, since not everybody has heard both.
August? Damn, I'm not that patient...
Still tempted to get these though. Argh, decisions :P
Can I change the shipping address after drops over?
I see. Thanks for the comparison. I think at this price, HD 6XX is a great deal then.
Once it hits 42,050 units sold, will I not be able to purchase them?!?!
You can! You just have to reach out to their support. I had mine changed pretty easily.
You won't be able to purchase them today. However, if you've placed them on your request list, you should receive an alert when they do return (in a post above, it says they will have several batches over the next few months).
Excellent, I managed to be lucky, roll on Aug.. or when ever it comes. Thanks Massdrop.
Ok thank you for clarifying!
Just recieved notification that my order is the next batch and is now with the manufacturer...
Whoopee 🎉 🎉
Probably gonna be the same as the previous drop. Don’t give up. Use a forwarding agent
Mine shipped on March 9th. I received the email saying they were in the warehouse on March 6th. Looks like we'll all see our headphones a good 2 weeks early. Yipeee!!!!
Bingo. You'll NEVER get a pair once 41,050 units have sold. You'll be forced to either buy a pair of HD650 for $320+ or find a used pair that's all beat up. Better save up those pennies while these are still available.
They might not be here tomorrow. They might not be here the next day, or the day after that or even the day after that, but maybe a couple months from now they are coming back.
Oh I know they will. But at a certain point Sennheiser won't do these special buys since it takes away sales from other vendors.
Eventually they will stop, I hope they don't before at least 100k units are sold. The more people discocer quality sound the better
Yes I agree with you on that. And hopefully another by product is the price of the HD 660S will drop. With the 6xx selling @$199 here I'm positive MANY people that were possibly eyeing the HD660S as their first serious Sennheiser headphone decided to go with the HD 6XX. It's what happened with me.
Should I have a tracking #? People are telling me I should by now as part of the Dec-Jan group but I don't know where to find one.
Click on the "Person" icon at the upper right to get to your transactions page. You will see the details of your transaction, including your tracking number. You can use it to track your shipment through whatever delivery service is listed.
No tracking # yet. Looks like they're staggering out the tracking info this week.
I checked that and mine says "order placed with vender". No tracking number yet.
Yes. I ordered on Nov 30th. I received my tracking # Friday afternoon. I SHOULD have received my package Tues. FedEx had my package at their local hub Mon morning. We had a snow storm Tues so they held off the handoff to USPS for safety reasons. It was slated as guaranteed for Wed. Now LAZY ASS USPS pushed it back to Thurs. I stayed home so I could be here when it arrived. Not sure I can do that tomorrow. :(
That means Massdrop ran out of headphones before they could fulfill your order. I thought I was going to have to wait until the next train but I was sent my tracking # Friday.
Hmm okay. Well mine is still supposed to ship by the 28th of March. Would have been nice to get them before my b-day which is the 27th.
I just keep checking every day hoping the delivery date got moved up XD. Its only been a week but I just cant wait till august lol.
I had an original ship date of March 28th. Not sure how that determine who to bump up and week b gets left behind. Maybe you ordered a few minutes later than me? I know I joined in he be last few minutes of the drop end.
I think it means they just didnt process your part of the final shipment yet, and they still have them.
They said in the email the last of the November-January shipment was in. There's not "more" coming for the March.
Since everyone is putting their shipping date I thought I would put mine as well.
I placed my order December 23, 2017 and they shipped March 12, 2018. According to FedEx, I should receive my headphones by this Saturday, March 17.
My headphones shipped on March 13 but have an arrival date of March 21, they already got from New Jersey to New Mexico so I'm hoping it gets delivered early. Can't complain though as I ordered them on January 19!
I got my headphones a day early. Right now I'm just using the onboard sound from my Z97 G45 Gaming motherboard and it sounds pretty good. I tried plugging these headphones into different audio sources and the sound is ok, but it's definitely much better on my computer, especially after I adjusted the surround sound room correction settings in my audio manager.
Would something like Audio G-d's R2R-11 for $400.00 shipped be overkill? I plan on getting one other audiophile grade set of cans, maybe even two.
i got this one and its a really good dac /amp
Some people say x1s doesn't have enough output power to drive HD650, anyone who have tried x1s mind share your opinion?
I got my 6xx today and am listening via my X1s which I bought specifically for this purpose. The X1s is driving the 6xx well. I am listening comfortably between 12 & 3 and can get to uncomfortable levels in the 3 to 6 range. I am listening to Google Play Music and FLAC (via VLC) on a Macbook Pro. That said, my understanding is that the 6xx scale well. I'm definitely interested in hearing them through a more powerful Amp.
MBPr -> GPM/VLC FLAC -> X1s -> 6xx.
I have a Schiit Uber stack and a Little Dot MK II. The HD 6XX sounds great on the Schiit stack. With the Little Dot MK II the sound signature is a touch warmer with a touch more emphasis in the lower regions with a little warmth added to male vocals. The highs are a bit elevated and get a touch splashy with certain tracks but that could be the fault of the preamp tubes. Overall the sounds signature is great with a detailed but subdued treble. I understand why it's said this headphone scales with your equipment changes. Any change in the signal chain is conveyed by the headphones. I have about 20 hours cook time on them now and want to get 50 hours on them before I do any serious listening. So far I'm very impressed. Cook time updated to 30 hours and I think I can start listening to them but I'll still play them for 4 or 5 hours per day for the next week when not listening to them.
I already ordered 6xx. first few days it was showing on my transaction list but now its not . I don’t know what went wrong . what should i do ??
do you have the 5th or the 6th gen? or in other words the old x1s or the newer 10 year anniversary one the differences is the power outage the old has 80 mW and the new has 200 mW at 300 ohms
I have 10th Anniversary edition.
I keep getting more and more addicted to my HD 650, ha! Though I stopped for lunch and dinner, I literally wore mine for like 8-9 hours yesterday!
This said as someone with more headphones than is reasonable for one person to have. The HD 650 does not get all my head-time, and it’s not my top headphone either, but I love it and enjoy the no-fuss musical nature of it :D
Schiit stack is in and set up, now I wait to get my 6XXs. Ah the humanity...
Hi! Do you know when will we have the next drop?
Good choice. I'm adding a Magni 3 to my collection. How can you not for the price? It would be easy to accidently spend $115 on a bunch of crap.
Oh definitely. You have a Modi as well?
I bought that drop which suppose to be ship out by August, why this drop now ships at April 4th?! Could you kindly please explain? Thanks.
Whats going on i bought 2 drops ago and to be shipped 13th july but this drop is shipping apr.... yes PLEASE explain
Its kinda funny.. Im sure they are aware of this drop date and the previous dates and it seems like they dont bother to state even a bit explanation and expect us all to just accept it. What soccery is this...
I have A Modi 2U and a Magni 2U with a Magni 3 on it's way. I'll have it either Saturday or Monday.
Nice! I've got a Magni 3 and a Modi 2, and I'm about to get the 6XXs so I'll be doing my first listening session tonight when I get home. I can't wait!
just got mine today aswell and the 2015 aune x1s drives them really good
I received mine today and am really impressed with how solid the build is for $200. My FiiO Q1 is not powerful enough to drive these, so I have a Jotunheim w/ multibit DAC arriving this Saturday...life is good!
660s is has same drivers as HD700 but different tuning, both have issues when it comes to natural sounding cans, the HD6XX is more refined, laid back and dark
660s is easier to drive but you will need a good amp to tame the treble as it can be peaky
So excited for this, but sad I have to wait till august. Maybe I can try to forget they are coming. Probably not. . Can't wait! Thanks Massdrop!
Why the change in shipping date? I signed up as it stated a shipping date of April 4th. Now it is 4+ months later in August?
I was going to ask this as well but I assumed I just read it wrong since I joined early the first day from my phone. Glad I’m not crazy.
They stated multiple times in the comments here that the April shipping date was caused by a "technical bug" when the drop opened. It was already fixed by the time I joined the drop. If you don't want to wait, you'll probably have to contact somebody at Massdrop. This is one of the various earlier comments from Will:
There was a technical bug this morning that resulted in an incorrect ship date being listed on this drop.
These will not ship in April, these will ship in August (est ship date Aug 16), after the units from the previous drop are fulfilled.
If this changes your desire to purchase, you can modify yout order from your "my transactions" page.
Thanks for your interest in this collaboration and our community!"
When i signed up, i read the main page and then proceeded to give my payment. It's not really standard practice to go reading through the discussion to see if they screwed up their post? They should have fixed it.
WTF.. Joined, because i don't want to wait until other headphones on the way..
Welcome to the MassDrop "purgatory". May I ask: did your credit card (or PayPal) get charged for your order? I ordered at the beginning of March. ETA approximately mid-August. Patience, eh. Up here in Toronto, the HD650 is selling for $700-800 (if you can find them). Even with the CDN-USD conversion rate, it's still cheaper for me to do this drop.
Small comfort, I know., @vasichkin . I'm dying too. My headphone amp's woefully overpowered for my current cans. Sigh...
@Kennypt ... Nope. We're still getting freezing rain here in Toronto. August = my HD6xx arrive. August. Yeah... f@@k. <:-)
Hi, I've joined the last drop and I was already charged (few hours after the drop has ended).
okay!. That’s good. You‘ll Get a set (that happened to me too, once that drop ended). I‘d Print up a receipt (or save it as a PDF)...
the waiting begins.
When will the next drop happen?
So..... I'm buying them in early april for them to arrive in august?
That appears to be correct.
I bought them in February and my estimated ship date is August 13th. How is this production run roughly the same ship date. Kinda frustrated because I would be waiting almost 2 months more, though after watching some reviews, I heard them mention that they do come "a couple months early". Honestly can't wait.
I couldn't stand having to wait 4-5 months to receive them, which is why I opted to order mine on eBay last week. Paid about $20 more and I'll have them in a couple days. Usually Massdrop orders are quick, but not for these cans!
I bought mine tomorrow and got them yesterday
Maybe the production just gone quickly than anticipated so instead of shipping them earlier they just open another drop with new estimated shipping date that just a few days after the previous batch. That make sense to me since they open new drop EVERY DAMN WEEKS now.
No what they do is a maximum production run due to costing of running the run
The more they get the better it is for Senheisser to stay partnered with MD
These cans sell for $500 cheapest where I live, getting them for $280 landed puts a dent in the retail market so maximising profits is what is it all about
Senn do this by batch runs of large quantities, not small
I know all this because I work as an FBI agent
Good to have you on our side then, Snake. BTW, I have a question for you. How do I get out of New York. I also need some tips on escaping LA too. Someone told me you might be able to help.
Just read the script, it tells you what to do
I would really like to join this drop but I won't be able to.
Do you guys think there will be another one?
Read the message at the top of this discussion area. They say exactly as much.
Cant ship to philippines???
Hope they’re not counterfeit. eBay is full of fakes, I wonder if the Chinese have copied the 6XX yet.
Counterfeiting the "knock off" of the 650's, that's funny. But not unrealistic! They were brand new in box and everything I've identified points to them being real. Always good to be cautious on there. I've noticed a trend that many 6xx's are sold on eBay around the time people start receiving their drops. So people buy a few extra and try to flip them for a little profit.
If there’s another drop that follows up fast after a previous drop and ships faster, it’s far more likely that they are extra unsold units from the production batch of the last drop.
<<Time Paradox, GAME OVER>>
Unlikely to be many unsold units seeing as they're manufacturing based on the order.
you guys hustled on this one, the 6xx is a resounding success. now, uh, maybe bring back the Hifiman HE-500? or the Elex but at $500, that would sell as well, and I don't think it's a stretch as you can have an Elear for easily $550 on a good day used.
Hello @AveryC ... Re: March 5 paid orders. Would you be able to provide a May 2018 update to the discussion group? Thanks, eh.
Yep.. he500s would sell well one would hope...just dont build them like the he560 with plastic yoke...
I received an update, as of May 26th. An early delivery!? Sounds promising. (Check your inboxes, eh).
