Customs is sort of an import tax charged by the importing country. Naturally it should be borne by the person who imports the item, not the seller. Hope it helps.

Of course not. How can Massdrop keep track of the customs regimes for every country that they ship to?
Are there any online sellers that take care of customs duties for you?

Last I checked, Amazon or Newegg doesn't take care of customs in Indonesia. It's why there was a company that specifically took care of everything for your purchases at Amazon if you wanted to pay a 50% markup, which I guess is fair since import tax it fluctuates betwen 30% to 100% to sometimes 0% if you're really lucky.

Hey, i am from India and i have ordered several products from Massdrop. the customs charges are not included, usually anything around 4K INR is not charged any customs fee. over that you are looking at about 40 to 50 percent charges. e.g, i ordered smsl m6 dac amp which cost me about 9k INR including shipping and then i had to pay about 4.5k INR for customs. not a bad deal considering the price on indian sites was 25K INR for same product . i havent received any thing after the GST came in to effect so not sure whether it will increase or decrease the customs charges. there are a few thing on the way from massdrop to me in the next few weeks so i will find out soon.
dont be disheartened by the customs charges, most of the stuff available in massdrop is not available in India and even with the customs charges the final cost tends to be lesser than the cost for same stuff available for import on sites like amazon.

Nowadays, since May 2020, you can be taxed about 95% of the amount (Which is laughable) So if you order the 8k item, and ship it via DHL or FedEX you can expect your total Tax to also be 8000RS/- (LOL). I got a couple hoodies from an Anti Social Social Club drop where the order price was 9k and i had to pay 9.5k in taxes. Hope this helps. Cheers!

Hi, i am not an expert on this subject. but as per my knowledge and research done it appears that the import of Headphones from USA to India will attract a minimum of 10-15% (Basic customs duty). however the actual amount you need to pay varies and can be as much as almost full value of the product. Personally I would not want to buy anything thats over 5-6 K INR from Drop.com because i have noticed my purchase of upto 6k INR didnt attract any customs however another purchase which was about 8K INR caused me to pay almost 4K INR in customs. These charges are decided by the customs handling officer and you will have an option to dispute the charges, but if you do raise a dispute be ready to have to wait for a few months for your item to be cleared by them and countless mails and even visit to the customs office. TBH its not worth it for a small purchase of few thousand rupees. they wont even entertain if you try to reason with them. If you want to buy good quality headphones, try Headphonezone.com. they are reputed and official retailers in India for many international brands I have personally bought several headphones, DAC/AMP including my chord mojo, Ifi Micro idsd BL from them and it doesn't cost a penny more than the original price. i am not endorsing them. there are several good online stores in India now where you can buy quality audio gear.

Usually custom Fees aren't included in shipping and are needed for the payer (which is you) to pay extras for it, usually if you don't buy in bulk, it will be okay. It won't cost much.

Import duties vary from country to country. In Indonesia, it's 30% on anything over $75. It could go upwards to 100% if they deem it a "luxury" item. A $200 headphone in a third world country will almost always be deemed a "luxury" item. Then it's just your haggling prowess and luck of the draw of how corrupt the custom officer is. It's why I almost never buy directly from Massdrop to Indonesia, save for some cheap $49 M220 my cousin wanted...

Best imaging and soundstage headphones for positioning and immersion?
I was looking at He4XX and K7XX mainly, but I was going to use these mostly for gaming and some music, which means overall imaging is the most important, but I also wouldn't want a headphone that's too boring. Thank you for any help. Edit: My previous headphones were Sennheiser G4ME One's, I'd want comparable or better performance.

The $400 question: E-mu Teak or Aeon Closed X? (Just try both?)
I am looking for my end game. For most of you that is a dream. At my 68 years of hearing experience it is more real than most of you know! I will become less, not more demanding other than the need to increasingly EQ!! Not yet but it's coming... So I would rather spend my money on one very good pair of closed headphones than go for multiple specialists in desktop, movie, portable, gaming, analytical/monitor, fun etc. My audio experience is extensive. Headphones though quite limited; originally Koss Pro 4a, finally the Sony MDR-V900HD closed purchased 14 years ago (!) that I am still using with different pads. They are still good but I have no recent reference to judge them by. And I want more clarity. With the pads I have they are somewhat mid-centric and veiled, with neither highs nor lows particularly convincing, though the sound is quite neutral & natural otherwise. I listen to Classic Rock/Stones, Who; Metal/Iron Maiden, Motorhead & Classical, with some Bluegrass and Blues...

An upgrade to my Little Dot MKII
I made the decision to upgrade my modest Little Dot MKII Tube Amplifier this past week and it just got here yesterday. This is a used piece of gear, it's the first generation Woo Audio WA6. I wanted to go with Silver as it would match my Solid State Burson Conductor 3 Performance Headphone Amp/DAC/Pre-Amp, as well as the Schiit Lokius I also picked up recently. I wound up with Black; it was in the best condition of those I saw available, it was priced better and it came from an audio dealership with a brick & mortar store which displayed a working telephone number and an A+ rating with the BBB so I knew that I was probably safe in dealing with the gentleman. The Lokius is brand new. What I've learned is that I am going to have to do some figuring out how to deal with all of this new stuff, including how to get it all onto my 6 foot desk along with my lamp and modem. Apparently the Lokius has to be connected between Amp and DAC, so it would fit in between...
