If there's anyone in the UK thinking of buying these, and worried about additional taxes. This is what I have just paid. All very easy to pay online.
Customs Entry £8.50
Import Duty £4.31
Import VAT £32.92
Massdrop price $199.00 for me at current exchange rate was £165.00 + taxes, total about £211.00 still a great deal.
Apparently these are made in Ireland so why can’t we just get a pair sent from there? £45 import tax is ridiculous in my opinion.
You clearly don't understand the difference between import duty and VAT.
The duty was just £4.31. The £32.92 was VAT which you cannot avoid even if shipped from Ireland. You'd pay either Irish or UK VAT in that case too, on top of the Massdrop price.
Thanks for clearing that up 👍🏻
So how do you go about paying the tax /vat before the headphone come here
