I find it very ironic that headphones made in France can't be send to Europe. I would buy a set immediately as an upgrade to my HD 650. In Europe closest thing to Elex cost 1222 Euro (Focal Clear on Thomann).
I don't find it strange at all that Focal, a French company, doesn't want us competing with them on their home turf...
Well, that would make sense if that specific model was sold on the European market. But it isn't, so what is the point of your argument?
tl:dr; "The Elex is an Elear with perforated earpads and headband, a much lighter 1/4" cable, an additional 4-pin XLR cable, and a blacked out colorway for $700 (vs Elear MSRP of $1000)."
It's the same argument with GMK sets sold by MassDrop. They're shipped from Germany to the US, and then back to Europe again, if I chose to join a GB. How does that make any sense?
In your first statement, I think you answered your own question...
In the GMK case, that’s just on us and our logistics operations being not sophisticated enough yet (And arguably sales volumes not justifying the logistics). We can/should split our GMK orders to go to the USA and the EU warehouses and service EU keycap buyers from the EU warehouse. We’re getting there pretty soon.
The Elear is the closest headphone being the same besides the color and perforated headband and pads.
Thank you for the update in regards to the GMK sets. I'm glad to hear that it might change change soon.
