Hopefully massdrop takes this as a lesson, countless mis-information in the description, lack of information (country of origin), and the 6 month wait time caused these to flop immediately. Perhaps they should take a bit of risk and pre-order these from sennheiser to reduce the crazy 6 month wait time. If these had a 2 week wait time I bet they would have sold at lest 3 times as many.
part of the reason why the price is low ,,, exclusive and wait time. Regardless, great brand and quality for a great price.
How is country of origin important? We all know where Sennheiser assemble their high end headphones.
Country of origin is very important. This is a brand new product that hasn't existed on the market and massdrop is asking people to pay without divulging that information. These are selling for far less than a headphone of this family has ever sold, it if comes out that these are not made in Ireland like the rest of the family that would explain the cost reduction and potential quality reduction.
the HD 6xx was manufactured in europe and it is similar in price. You can safely assume it will be manufactured in the same place. Of course there are things they cheap out on to get the price lower like packaging but there it wouldn't be anything that'll affect sound quality or build quality. Most sennheiser headphones are made in china and the quality is still excellent. You can't base quality with country of origin.
