So what part of the building process takes 5 months to complete before shipping? Is everything hand made?
Sennheiser has to source all the required materials as well as assemble everything. Not sure about the HD58X, but the HD6XX family has hand-matched/tested drivers. Also, 5 months is probably just a safe estimate. I wouldn't be surprised if they start shipping earlier.
Yeah they shipped the HD6XX 1 month earlier on the last drop.
Oh so they are hand made in Ireland. I was under the assumption everything was made in China but assembled in Ireland.
The EU has laws regarding labeling a product "Made in ____" and how much percentage of the components must be made in that country/EU. They do not allow buying 100% of parts from China, assembling in an EU country, and falsely labeling "Made in _____"
Made in China, assembled in Ireland.
