I am tired of import taxes every time I participate in a drop. I don't mind paying the actual price of products in USD even with the Canadian dollar doing so bad. I was wondering if there is any chance of a Canadian branch ever opening up so drops can be mailed quicker and import taxes wouldn't apply. I know there are a lot of Canadian customers who would appreciate this as well. Something similar to what Amazon.ca does.

So spill over from a Reddit thread, where it seems like just about everybody (even those that own HD6XX), would be very willing to buy a Drop version of HD600 / HD60X if it is same price as HD6XX. I joked, someone suggest this to Drop.com. Well, maybe I would do it myself. @CEE_TEE I'm looking at you now.
Here's what the general summary:
-HD600's tuning and sound signature is very well regarded and well reviewed. Reviewers such as Tyll back when he was with Inner fidelity spoke very highly of it and preferred it over HD650. There's a lot of people curious and would want to try HD600 at some point.
-Current pricing of HD600 is what stopped most people from buying it. Even though a lot of people understand that they might have a preference for HD600 based on reviews, it didnt make economic sense to spend hundreds more on it when HD6XX is just much cheaper.
-If price is competitive to HD6XX, many audiophiles who already own HD6XX voiced the opinion that they would still buy and try...
Looking for OPPO PMs -- Do you want to sell your pair?
I lost my Steel Blue OPPO PM-3s in a tragic event a few months ago. (Car got stolen, got car back, headphones were gone, only thing I really wanted back). I'm interested in finding a new pair, and I'd really love the red ones or the blue ones. You can't buy them new any more, but if anyone has a used pair they'd be willing to unload, here's a buyer for you...
I have a schiit stack currently which I will upgrade later. I am looking for a good set up for music (orchestral, metal, alt rock, I tend to listen to a lot of female vocals), movies, and competitive fps games. I have okay headphones now but I'm finding I have multiple for different applications. I'd like to consolidate and upgrade.
So, thoughts on getting a HD6xx plus AD700x for music and gaming respectively.
HD 660s for both
Or Focal Elex. I'm thinking these would be my endgame? Perhaps saving money in the long run from trying to satisfy different applications.
I am a semi professional gamer (I make decent money playing but not my livelihood. I do not stream). It is important to me for positional, clarity, etc
I am not technically trained in critical listening but I do have some musical training in different instruments and I appreciate well mixed music. I love hearing things clearly and the subtle details. It makes me really happy.
I also do a lot of remote work...
I am interested in upgrading my system. I have UE 18 CSX IEMs, using i-phone as source. I am interested in the Focal Elex headphones. What would be the best pairing with DAC/amp. Are there portable options that would work with both?
