Why is the shipping cost so much higher on these headphones?
$25 shipping to Denmark, the only one getting close to that price is the Matrix2 AF 62 at $21.25
Otherwise for current drops it's $18 or below for shipping.
Even the Fostex TH-X00 with a weight of 482g (compared to the lightweight K7XX at 235g) cost $15 for shipping.
Is the package really that much bigger for the AKG K7XX to warrant such a price?
It's 199$ for a 649$ MSRP product and you're complaining about ~8$ extra in shipping fees for what is already an incredibly low price for a shipping forwarder?
There isn't really a msrp as these are exclusive to mass drop.
English not being my mother tongue, my comment might have come across as a complaint, but I assure you that, that wasn't the intent.
It's just that with the info we're given, I can't see why these cost 66.67% more in shipping when compared to the TH-X00 or the HE-350, all 3 headphones are exclusive to Massdrop, they are all shipping by Massdrop, the K7XX is lighter when compared to the other 2.
We could also compare the MSRP of these 3 headphones, and how big a saving we're making, but as pointed out by Wynsent (and a few others) the MSRP is somewhat useless as these are all exclusive to Massdrop.
We might very well only be speaking about a few dollars at most, however I'm just curious about this apparent disparity in shipping cost.
