Massdrop Testing Local Shipping in European Union

search

This is a test.
Hey everyone, 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.
search
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 original pricing structure. PLEASE NOTE: The products in this collection have been specifically set up for this shipping method. These are:

Here are some answers to some possible questions you might have:

What is VAT? Simply put, “Value added tax” or VAT is an indirect tax, which is imposed on goods and services at each stage of production, starting from raw materials to final product. It is applied in EU countries. Why am I being charged in USD instead of Euros? As this is a test, our system isn’t currently set up to properly support other currencies. This will not be part of a permanent solution. What happens if there’s a problem with my order? If you have an issue with your product or order, the process will be the same as with our other products. You can enter a ticket with our support team (www.massdrop.com/support) and they’ll be able to help you out. Why no Sennheiser products? We've chosen to roll out European distribution as quickly as possible, so our logistics and supplier coordination is still getting ironed out. We hope to eventually have everything available for European distribution, but it will be a gradual process. At this time, we have no ETA on when our Massdrop x Sennheiser products will be available via this new shipping method. What happens next? Indeed, this is a test, but we want this to lead to a more permanent solution in giving members living in Europe a better overall experience and meet the demand of our products in this and other markets. We will be evaluating the success of this test in real-time in the hopes of deploying this shipping method immediately in an official capacity. We will keep you posted on how this rollout may happen and which products beyond those in this test will be supported.

What about fixing APO!? Any chance we can get USPS shipments to APO sometime?
Thanks to this I can finally order the HE4XX's now. Which I did. Importing from USA isn't an option.
When do you expect to get the Sennheiser HD6xx back in the European shipping offer, just wondering how if I should hold off or get something else?
This would really be a welcome addition. Either that or spinning off a seperate EU store.
It would be great if Drop could give us a timeframe for this to happen again!

TOMORROW! ITS OFFICIAL. 7AM PDT / 2PM GMT
Any news on this yet? It would be great if you'd tell us some more about the plans. There's a ton of us just waiting with our credit cards ready but it just becomes unreasonably expensive with shipping, handling, fees etc. to a lot of EU countries.
Refreshing since Monday©
Crea1986
Yo... it's close. Real close.
Is there an exact day? I don't like refreshing pages :/
Ciro_Oda
Could be tomorrow. Stay tuned.
Any news for EU customers so far? :) Can't wait for the new batch of products! PS Sennheiser?
magicabula
Confirming right now. Could be tomorrow. Will there be Sennheiser products?.... maybe. :O
Will the Massdrop Plus IEMs be part of the next batch of products?
Ville_a
Unfortunately, no. Not looking like it. Sorry :(
Duncan
Alright, thank you for the quick answer! Fortunately international shipping is available anyway :)
will we get a mail when it's back again ?
Powerray

That collection is dead.
The THX AAA 789, HD 6XX and HD 58X are the audio essentials IMO. BTW are these prices final or will they decrease?
(Edited)
DylanGallagher
I guess they will increase it

Part 2 is VERY close.
When we can know the future of Massdrop Europe? :)
When can we except some info on how it all went 😊 all EU drops are sold out and we need some new ones, perhaps the sennheiser 58x you have on drop in the states
(Edited)
HD6xx
MASSDROP X AKG K7XX RED EDITION (EU) 29 and it was sold out ??? :)
Oh, crap... Now I'll spend a lot more money than I want to..
(Edited)
djuzo
Same here :D
Please,i'd like to see photographic products
it all depends on the prices, alot of the stuff that I see on massdrop if they were even in pounds would be a decent deal and I would most likely spend way too much money on here. Would of loved to buy the HD6XX but don't wanna have to mess around with everything and the extra costs.
JEGHatton
Tbh the HD6XX are sold at an extraordinarily low price, even if you pay additional customs tax. At that price point there is just no competing product worth considering.
Really hoping you add the Focal Elex
why can i not post in this discussion using my registered user name i keep getting prompted to create one when already signed in...??? this is 'mrsim' by the way
