Umm does the chance of winning go up if we purchase 2?

I'd like to know as well. The description states that you get a 1/(# of participant) chance so that makes it sound like you only increase your chance at getting something else rather than getting the promotional items.

Statistically, it doubles your chances.

2x a very low number is still a very low number. No one should enter just because of the extra Massdrop prizes, enter only if you want one of the MEE IEMs.

If you pay for two IEMs, you have a 0.25% chance of winning one of the 5 higher valued items.
If someone outside the US wins one of the higher value items, be prepared to pay for customs fees at delivery. Not that the winners would likely care, but just so you don't get caught unexpectedly.
It'd be around $220 CDN to bring the HD-800 over to Canada for example.

Damn, I'm glad I live in the US. I had no idea customs fees were anything near that for such a small package.

For my country, it depends on the value they write on the box. I mean, I've only paid like $34 (incl. shipping) so I'd expect them to write that on the box even if it contains a pair of HD800s.

Hopefully so, however if they wanted to be honest about the true "value" of the item, they wouldn't put the price paid but the actual market value right?

For customs purposes, the price paid is what should be marked on the shipment: they can't tax you on *potential* value, after all. The problem with that is that insurance uses the same price, which means that if you paid $1000 for something and they marked it as $10, then if it got damaged in transit you'd only be entitled to the $10 it was marked as.
That's not an issue with this drop though, and we have the proof (the invoice) that we only paid the lower value. So even if you do get dinged with customs fees, you can certainly dispute them and pay only the lesser amount (if you're up for it).

I gotcha, it just seems like a big, largely useless bureaucratic headache to me.
