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.

The THX AAA 789 headphone amp seems to be a big success thus far, but has there been any thought about developing a speaker amp using the same technology for Massdrop?
Benchmark has the AHB2 that uses the THX AAA tech in a speaker amp, and it’s received rave reviews, but it’s pretty dang expensive.
Any chance on a Massdrop collaboration or design that could offer that kind of performance for a more wallet-friendly price?
Has anyone at Massdrop thought about creating a collaborative version of the Sennheiser HD 25? Team members could confect a dark blue plastic model, or finesse and fine-tune the HD 25 Aluminum (not the Amperior; I'm talking about the proper HD 25 with fully detachable cable, etc.).
Comparison review king |Joker| of TheHeadphoneList gives the HD 25-1 his highest rating (http://theheadphonelist.com/headphone-review/sennheiser-hd25-1-ii/). I once spoke with him about his background as an audio engineer because I'm an old-time studio musician who has found that the HD 25-1 might be the only DJ headphone that can be used in studios for basics and overdubs. |Joker| seemed to agree.
I'm always recommending versions of the HD 25 to friends. It would be nice if I could bring those friends to Massdrop on the strength of a special edition with a reasonable price.
Have been following my headphones to Germany through the DHL tracking though they are said to have failed delivery. When I contact DHL parcel here in Berlin they say that the tracking number provided by Drop and DHL global is invalid. Even one collegue said that they were sent to a completely different address. However after calling on Skype DHL global back in the US they said that the address is infact correct and the headphones are laying in transit somewhere in Germany , but have no way of sending them themselves out to the correct address. Anyone have similar issues and resolve for such situations ? Would be great if Drop would offer a DHL express service for international shipping as that customer support is much better.
My hd 6xx sound like crap. Dull and congested sounding. Did i recieve a defective product ?
Got my hd 6xx today. Straight out of the box it sound veiled, conjested and dull. I have the hd 598 to compare to and 598 sound like from another world compared to 6xx. I am thinking i have got some defective product. I can't return it because i live in India(oversea shipping and all)
Mine is made in Romania. I found online that some romanian made unit has some difference, and later they fixed it. Anyway i wasnt expecting anything dramatic difference like this. There isnt much channel imbalance to speak of but the overall sound is dull and congested. I don't know how it could be.
I power it via fiio btr3 . It outputs like 60mw to 50ohm or something. I don't have any other dac or amp. is it the problem. Would buying a amp solve the problem.
WHAT DO U ALL THINK OF THAM I GOT THE 58XX THER GOOD FOR ONE THINK HEARING THE MANE SINGERS VOICES AND EVERY TINK ELL'S IS VARY SMOOTH AND CLEEER BUT I LOVE SOUND SYAGE AND I LOVE SUB BASSS AND NO SIMBAKINTS I CANT SPELL THAT WORD SORRY BUT WIN THE SS WORD DRAG OUT IF ANY ONE WHANTS TO HELP ME PIC THE RIGHT ONES HIT ME UP
I listen to music pretty much from internet stations like spotify, youtube music etc using wifi phone/laptop and using wireless headsets. But looking at various comments on drop, I feel I am obviously missing something. I do not think I want to go back to CDs and wired systems.
What are the some really good wireless music systems I should look at?
I am ok with cost in few thousand USD.
