Massdrop really needs to improve their shipping options outside the continental US. Without a way to rush the shipping, it literally takes a month to receive anything from Massdrop. Why not mail it USPS instead of having FedEx sit on it for 3.5 weeks? And I got an email from FedEx saying that they’re now delaying it a day longer. Seriously? Time to step it up, Massdrop.

It's a case of "what you pay is what you get". For $15 global shipping this is what you get. Sure, overnight (or 48 hrs) service would also be possible, but you'd have to pay for it way over 15 bucks. The delays seem to happen after DHL (not Fedex) hand over the goods to the postal service for delivery in Germany. If Massdrop used USPS who do you think would handle the overseas (seen from the US) end - right, the same postal services.

I asked massdrop a few months back cause i was sick of waiting for my parts sitting in germany for 20+ days doing nothing. Alas, I was told that due to their current contract with DHL, they cannot use any other shipper for global addresses.

Thank you for your replies. I would be willing to pay significantly more for expedited shipping rather than waiting a month with no other options. Currently, I have no choice but to wait a month as there aren’t any other provided methods to ship to me. I say let the buyer decide if the want to pay significantly more for shipping or stick with the default.

Absolutely no problem because you do have the option. Walk into your nearest Sennheiser retailer, fork out some cash, and walk out with the HD650. Same headphone, better cable, workable warranty, instant gratification.

So you're recommending that I avoid Massdrop and simply buy retail? Sure, that'll fix it.

Yep, why use Massdrop at all if you're prepared to pay extra for speed? There's nothing better about the 6XX- the cable is inferior, the boxing isn't quite as nice, you won't have a local warranty. Personally, I use Massdrop because they are cheap. I also put up with their slow international deliveries (and sometimes have to jump through shipping hoops for stuff like the 6XX which won't ship to Asia). If I wanted something immediately, I'd just buy local.

HD 650 Retail Price: $499.95 HD 650 Amazon Price: $319.00 HD 6xx Massdrop: $199.00 If I paid $30 for 7-day shipping, it would be worth it. Troll.
