I'm kind of pissed in hindsight. $215 + £46.26 for UK Customs (CCL) The HD650 from Amazon UK are only about £15 more than the "real" price I've ended up paying.

$215+ £46.26= ~$275, if you can pick them up for 300 then it's 15 dollars less

Nope, the Hd650 are going for ~$291 from Amazon UK, with no customs duty and next day delivery. Thanks to the fact that the 6xx went from Ireland to USA and then back across to the UK plus their estimated value; I get stung by VAT, handling, and duty. Hell, if I need a longer cable, the 6xx will work out more expensive than the 650's. I guess in reality, I've paid for a 650 with a blue headband for a few £ less which I can live with.
In the End, I guess I've relearn t the rule I should have been following; that unless it's a true massdrop exclusive and/or its more than 30% cheaper than local retail, massdrop just isn't worth it to the UK. Don't just get sucked in by the hype.

I guess but i live in America. I'm just gonna assume what ninjamonkey said, but since i live in america where the lowest ive seen 650s go for is like 300$ USD its still worth it for me.

I've noticed that international buyers get screwed bad on these drops. But in some cases it evens out. I saw a monitor arm from elsewhere on massdrop and it cost more for US shipping bringing the price to annoy the same as me being it from Amazon. In a smaller sense I understand your pain.

Your not pissed at MassDrop your pissed at your socialist communist government and the fact that your country turned on itself and decided taxing its economy to death was a good idea because the same people that control the media want your country to wither and die. You sound ignorant you need to read the internet and catch up to 2016. Whining here only makes you look more ignorant. You youngs on this drop are very clueless about everything.........

No, I'm just slightly annoyed that whilst massdrop will ship internationally, there is no easy way to get the true total cost of delivery without going to other sites to perform the calculations. Doesn't seem like it should be that hard to do that directly on the site especially with api access...

Buddy you are ridiculous why would we care to calculate tax in the uk(its your problem not ours we have nothing to do with it(so please stop whining to us about it) MassDrop has nothing to do with it and doesnt get the money its all your country your still trying to aim the blame at the wrong target oh you wont blame your own country but you want to blame some americans(thank your tv(they brainwash you to think we are stupid) for that genius they brainwashed you)). Im sorry but you are completely brainwashed and still dont get it. Your mentality is crazy to people like me your hardheaded and inculcated and frankly you deserve to pay that tax if you are that silly and recalcitrant. I suggest you study more and fix your mind. You have a lot to learn about the world and you sound completely clueless. LOL @ vat api(a politician suggesting something like this would likely start a war here)(WE ARE COMPLETELY OPPOSED TO YOUR TAX STRUCTURE AND WILL NOT FACILITATE IT OR YOUR SLAVERY)(amazing how CA and UK cant see we are holding this back...... and you think your so smart....)(trust me your custom tarrif is the same thing now I could understand if it was for a company importing thousands of product but random personal packages thats crazy) please kill yourself(pre columbine definition LOL). Here let me help you, do you know what vat is?(i know youve been brianwashed with your vat propaganda but let me help you even tho you wont listen) VAT is only designed to hold down and choke the life out of your economy to make you all poor dole slaves so that the people that have taken over your country can dumb you down and get you to become liberal(so you become needy and then think tax helps your country wrong tax only makes your country poor environmental regulation and tax are the new trick to choke out western 1st world countries and all you morons are falling for it) and have you drowned in foreign immigration(thus invading and destroying your people(oh but its ok cuz love.....LOL)(study who was the ultimate authority in the firing of jeremy clarkson and you will have your answer(even with this clue you will still fail sherlock holmes)).

Sure is funny how you brits love to blame us for your government and policies(while at the same time looking down on us with contempt for not acquiescing to your insane tax policies(YOU MUST USE OUR TAX API!!! LOL) as some kind of nonconformist degenerates LOLOLOLOL cmon admit thats your bent on this)....... oh but when reality is revealed then it is easy to see what your really about(hating america cause your tv shows bring over dumb american for you to laugh at then you blanket apply that to all of us(us dumb americans are just too stupid to understand VAT and we should use your api to make it easy for your government to choke your economy)(you know actually what we americans are doing is tricking you by showing you a low price your not allowed to have(NOW I SEE THIS IS WHAT MAKES IT OUR FAULT LOLOLOLLOLOLOL))(ive seen your shows I know how your mind works).
Frankly, I think its better when you have to pay your government directly so you are mad at them instead of us cause even when you pay them the money directly somehow your still mad at us for some reason which I dont think there could be a more textbook case of Stockholm Syndrome.

a) I wasn't talking specifically about the UK, but any international country that MassDrop ship to. eg

b) Why do it? To provide better customer service to international buyers? Is that a bad thing?
I don't understand why you think I'm completely in the wrong for wanting to know how much something will cost me before purchasing. I'm not at all fussed about having to pay, I'm just suggesting a way to know the amount ahead of time.

Yes your custom tarrif due to your socialist communist government is a bad thing. I now see that everything I have said went right over your head and you didnt understand a word of it. If you are that clueless and naive and brainwashed there is no point in talking to you. Good luck mr slave.......... LOL mad about a surcharge but wants us to make it easier for his government to collect. THAT SIR IS DOUBLETHINK WHICH IS A DIRECT PROOF YOU ARE BRAINWASHED.

LOL tv brainwashed you you sap you cant even think for yourself. Racism sorry not possible for you to claim that u eurowash. You arent a gentleman your just a sucker. See I was exactly right about you above.
(while at the same time looking down on us with contempt for not acquiescing to your insane tax policies(YOU MUST USE OUR TAX API!!! LOL) as some kind of nonconformist degenerates LOLOLOLOL cmon admit thats your bent on this).......
LOL nailed it even my more "extreme reaches" were right on the money and every word that falls out of your mouth proves it. Face it some people just have a better handle on reality they are the experts(me) and you should defer to my judgement and stop being disrespectful of your betters(leaders, me). I knew that your complaint was really a passive aggressive Stockholm Syndrome contempt test(while as confused as you are you wanted us to fail to give yourself Stockholm Syndrome superiority).
