I’ve been enjoying my HD6XX since approximately May, 2018. It’s now paired up with a Schiit Audio Vali 2 (that is in turn fed by a Modi Multibit). End of October, 2018: The headphone’s construction is still rock-solid. Of course, I store them in the hinged box; however, they still feel like new. And I looked at the HD650 offered at bricks-and-mortar stores here in Toronto... >$600 CDN. Even with the exchange rate & duties, I save a bit of money. No buyers’ remorse.
how much were the duties?
For the headphones, I remember it being ~$10 for brokerage fees (FedEx?), plus HST (on the device, converted to CDN dollars). I also remember having to pay for shipping too. And yet, after all that, it was still cheaper than a HD650 at my local bricks-and-mortar store (I’m also shying away from 3rd party dealers on Amazon Marketplace [based on a HTG article]). Meh, I’m risk-adverse.
