We’re very excited to announce our newest partnership with an affiliate partner of ours, Student Beans.
For those unfamiliar with Student Beans, this new partnership will allow us to bring student-specific discounts to the Drop community. We hope that this discount will help make getting back to school more exciting and the school year a little bit easier.
Massdrop to Europe!
In europe, It's a pain having to go trough customs to buy in massdrop.
It would be awesome if we could have a massdrop for europe.
I know the products would be different but we had to start somewere... :)
This is a test.
We’ve been paying close attention to all of you who have discussed our current shipping experience in different parts of the world, particularly in Europe.
Today, we’re kicking off a new shipping method test in European Union countries, so we can better evaluate how we can improve this experience for members located in these markets.
Select audio products will be available to ship from our test warehouse in Europe with delivery expected within 5 business days. Most will arrive at your door with no post office pickup, though some exclusions apply, depending on your address. All prices in this test have been adjusted to include VAT, shipping and handling, and will be in USD.
Quantities are very limited so don’t delay. Once quantities have sold out, we will be evaluating the success of the shipping test, and will move forward either with the new prices that include VAT, shipping and handling (based on USD pricing), or revert to...
The prices here in the UK when compared to the US is insane. Yet, I understand why this is something which is needed by massdrop to keep sending things over. But I ask any ways, can there be a UK based Massdrop. So that I don't have to pay ridiculous prices to ship it over.
I donno about the rest of you guys, but I really liked the vaping community. I know there were some legal/logistical issues, but with 4 new states recreationalizing Cannabis and 3 new states adding medical programs, the momentum is clear. It's a product category that's going to see more and more demand and I'd really like to see it back on Massdrop!
Massdrop cofounders Steve El-Hage and Nelson Wu grew up on forums. Steve, who moved around a lot as a kid, used them as a tool for adapting to different school environments. Whether it was a new school or a whole new country, he found he had an easier time making friends when he was able to share their interests—and forums offered the perfect crash course in just about everything, from music to sneakers. As for Nelson, he’d always been into cars and photography, and forums gave him a place to connect with others like him and deepen his knowledge.
Steve El-Hage and Nelson Wu
Steve and Nelson met at a hackathon in Toronto, where Steve was studying economics and Nelson was working as a technical developer for another startup. They talked about the magic of forums—how they helped beginners explore new hobbies, gave enthusiasts a place to share their experiences, and formed communities with people of all levels of expertise. They talked about...
Hi everyone! We are beyond excited to announce a major update here on Drop.
Our new community, Battlestations, is now live! You can find our launch landing page here. Please read the official announcement from our CEO, Jef, for an additional perspective on why this new community means so much to us.
The new community allows us to feature products outside of the two mainstay communities that you’ve come to know and love: Mech Keys and Audiophile. We know as well as you do that curating the perfect workspace is a very personal endeavor, and also non-trivial. Finding just the right thing for your setup can take a lot of work. We hope that by adding this new community here on Drop we can provide a space for highly-regarded and unique desk items that will be sure to complement the accessories you have already carefully selected for your setup.
Along with the launch of our new community, we have a whole host of auxiliary events and giveaways to...

There should be a community for motorcycles. Plenty of common aftermarket parts and equipment, its riding season for many cold weather areas. New gloves, lights, tools, cleaning/maintenance products! If there is a knitting community we can definately support a motorcycle community.
Most owners spend way too much on our bikes, its perfect for massdrop.
Testing Local Shipping in European Union - PART 2!
This is another test.
Great news! We’re ready to kick off the next phase of our local shipping test for the EU. See the talk post for the initial test here.
We’re now prepared to open up a larger collection of products to keep moving toward a more consistent and better experience in EU markets.
The products will be available to ship from our test warehouse in Europe with delivery expected within 5 business days to the majority of locations. Most will arrive at your door with no post office pickup, though some exclusions apply, depending on your address. All prices in this test have been adjusted to include VAT, shipping and handling, and will be in USD.
Quantities are limited so do not delay.
We’ve made a collection that includes the available products here:
PLEASE NOTE: The products in this collection have been specifically set up for this shipping method.
Wow, I cannot believe they have discontinued all the fun stuff like WATCHES, knives, and outdoor gear. I feel stupid now for bringing my many viewers over here. Drop what have you done?! -nutnfancy actual
WHEN I JOINED THERE WERE SEVEREAL VIBRANT COLLECTIONS FOF NERDS HERE. KNIFES, TOOLS, OUTDOOREQUIPMENT, PENS, WATCHES/CLOCKS, FINE LEATHERPRODUCTS, CLOTHES AND IT GOES ON FOR A WHILE...
AND THERE WERE THE AUDIO AND KEYBOARD NICHE.
NOW THE DROP IS JUST A VERY DULL AND GREY PLACE...AND I REALLY HAVE NO MORE TO SAY
The following post provides information about Drop Studio products that are in “pre-order” status, i.e. products that are not currently shipping from our warehouse because they’re still being manufactured. We're trying this approach to consolidate the information that was previously scattered across many individual discussion posts. We'll evaluate how this works for a bit and then assess the best path forward. Without further ado...
59 Audiophile products currently in-stock and shipping immediately.
Drop + Audio-Technica Carbon VTA Turntable
(Aug 31) Production delayed, now expected to ship in late October.
(Oct 15) Turntables have arrived at our warehouse. Shipping beginning.
Drop O2 Headphone Amplifier
(June 29) Now expected to ship October 2021.
(September) Production delayed about 2 weeks. Now expected to ship early November.
(Oct 13) Now expected to arrive at our warehouse for a mid-November ship.
Massdrop x Meze 99 Noir Closed-Back Headphones
(June 2) Now...
In my experience, good bicycles are a very active niche market akin to headphones and keyboards. People try out new components, accessories, apparel and even new bikes constantly. And it's a market where tons of new innovations come out every year. There are a lot of competitor shopping websites but Massdrop should consider its edge.
Post your bike if you'd like to support the idea.

Today marks a really exciting and important day for all of us as I’m thrilled to announce that Massdrop is changing to Drop!
This new brand reflects how we’ve evolved since our beginnings in 2012, from group-buying site, to commerce platform and now, a product company made possible by your deep commitment to passions. As we enter this new chapter, I want to step back and thank all of you for everything you have done to help us get here. You have been core to who we are and that, of course, continues to be the case as we journey on as Drop.
The name Massdrop originated when we were just a group-buying site, but we are so much more than that now -- and you are anything but “mass.” We wanted a name that was a nod to our roots, strong, but also gave us room to have fun and grow, because what we’re collectively doing is truly amazing.
But Drop is more than just a name change. At its heart, this rebrand also helps us to better deliver on our...
We’re very excited to announce that we’re launching five new communities!
Launching new communities isn’t as easy as flipping a switch. A lot of thought and effort goes into every new community we create, and we’ve worked diligently to make sure we’re putting our best foot forward and making something you can really enjoy. We could not (and would not!) have done this without you. Now, let’s dive into how we chose these communities, the process, and what’s next.
We have a few simple guidelines that have always helped us determine which communities to create. Each new community should possess one or more of these qualities:
1. Community requested by Massdrop members
2. Community we believe we can meaningfully help and grow
3. Community that can be split off from our existing communities
As you can see, first and foremost, we listen to the community at large. This comes in the form of Talk posts, comments, polls, and even direct conversations. Not too long...
I'd love to have a Massdrop community catering to the high-end woodworking tools community. Planes, jigs, Japanese hand saws, chisels, tool rolls, wood turning tools, marking gauges, exotic woodstock etc. This stuff is right in the Massdrop sweet-spot. Niche, but not entirely outrageously priced, with an emphasis on quality goods.
Wanting to know if we in South Africa will ever have the opportunity to buy from your site as there are drops here to make one's jaw drop. Please let us know whats cooking. We are very VERY keen this side of the world. If Austria can have it... that why cant we?
