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...
Hello all, first post! I have been trying to scratch that "perfect sounding" headphone itch since the early 80's, when I was in high school and I got my first pair of Radio Shack Optimus 25, and realized headphones could actually have some bass, and they didn't all need to sound so danged tinny. So, I have been doing this for a long time, since before Audiophile was a word, my wife has even accepted that my search for the perfect sounding personal audio will likely be a life long search for me, even going so far as to contribute a few pairs to my collection. Trust me, it is a bug that some of us will never shake. I have had countless headphones over the years, including some of my current batch are the Denon AH-D2000 and AH-D7000 (have both been sent off to Mark Lawton, who currently has the 7000s putting a new cable on them, could not recommend Mark's work more), Shure SE846, Fiio FH7 (my current favorite IEM of all time, and I have had countless), to name just a few, and numerous...
My gripes with Audio science review as a Objectivist
Ever since i found that community way back as a place to talk about stuff. It's gotta be the most unscientific community i ever had the decency to post on. Disagree with what the place deems as facts nope you're just a annoying person who needs to shut up.
I highly hate how they try to be objective on a subject that doesn't work like headphones. Since they think a high THD and FR is the only way gauge how its sounds.
Is it possible to plug your 2 pin connectors into your IEMs backwards?
Hey guys, another newbie question here, is it possible to plug your 2 pin connectors to your IEM's backwards? Every other set of IEMs, when I put the connector in, the L and R are on the outside ... this particular one is towards my ear. Would I hear a difference if I reversed the pins? I am thinking I would... Thanks in advance !
1. I wanted to order HD 6XX and can't find any post regarding shipment to Saudi Arabia formerly by Drop. Has anyone got their Drop product?
2. Getting a Fiio K5 Pro for HD6XX, will it be enough to drive it?
