Tnx for your reply. Made in the EU, shipped to the US, and back again to the EU. Insanity.

Let me explain. Sennheiser HD6XX headphones are manufactured in Ireland but Massdrop is the vendor. Sennheiser is not the vendor. A manufacturering facility is typically never the location that is selling the product. Massdrop has the rights to sell this product, you can't buy this anywhere else. Sennheiser owns the manufacturing facility. You can't expect Sennheiser to allow Massdrop to use their real estate to set up a shipping fulfilment center.

There is no confusion as to who is the vendor. The point is that it would be possible for md to have a kind of warehouse in Europe so that (the many) European clients could get the products faster and with less money, especially the ones made in Europe.

A company of their size has probably already looked into that. They have to consider the logistics, legalities, cost, benefit, overhead, long-term. It's probably just cheaper for them to do what they are currently doing.

I think you've got the wrong definition of insanity.
