    Is this the first time Massdrop had a system overload like this?

    I know the HD6XX was a particularly popular drop but their business model seems to be set up to where this type of situation could happen fairly often.

    Well, I am one of the fortunate ones that got an email being invited back into the drop. The HD6XX is in my transactions page now. I just need to get a new amp and dac as I don't think my little dot 1+ will be powerful enough to put a decent current through 300 ohms :)

    I didn't receive an email but I realized I haven't been receiving any emails at all from them like I used to.

    Their rep says that they had 7000 people trying to join at once in the first moment of the drop.

    I get that this didn't go how they planned and that happens. I wasted two hours trying to get them but I'm not going to be all outraged about it. The thing that really stinks though is that I sold my main pair of headphones to buy these. Now I'm stuck with no good headphones and none on the horizon. Doh!! Well-played, massdrop.

    Well even if you did get in you'd still have to wait over a month to get them..

    Yes. Waiting a month for $200 HD650's is a better situation than waiting indefinitely for ???

    Around December there should be quite a few HDXX/650/600's around for $200 or less..I doubt you'd have a long wait if you ok buying a slightly used pair.

    HD600s for 265.00 brand spanking new, delivered to your door free in two days if you have (or know someone who has) Prime.

    https://www.amazon.com/Sennheiser-O...?ie=UTF8&qid=1478826709&sr=8-1&keywords=hd600

    Great fucking headphones. You can pick either 600s or 650s, and I'll fight you that the other one is better.

    @DigMe
    HD600 - $231.87 - Used Like New - from Amazon Warehouse Deals
    Free shipping. Free and fast shipping if you have Prime.
    "Item will come in original packaging. Packaging will be damaged."

    They have four of these at the moment.

    I bought a HD650 last month, with the same description, from Amazon Warehouse Deals for $250. The inner box had a smudge on it's finish. The outer box had a sticker on it. The contents of the box were exactly like new. I was really happy with the whole deal. YMMV

    Just want to chime in and say that this has always been my experience with those "Packaging will be damaged." AWD's. You can get some crazy good deals that way. It's like buying new stuff for used prices. And they pop up fairly often. Generally if it's a popular item, you are willing to wait around a month or two, and you're somewhat diligent, you'll see at least one. Usually several will pop up at once, if any.

    IIRC, their standard return policy still stands on those deals, too. I wouldn't know. Never had to return a single damaged box item. Who knew the box itself was worth so much to people?

    I bought some Harman Kardon BT Premium bluetooth headphones from Amazon Warehouse last year. They were missing the somewhat-unique charging cable. They offered to give me a discount or a return. I told them I'd do the return so they then refunded my money and told me to keep the headphones. I ended up buying the charging cable for 4 bucks (from Amazon).

    Yep, but probably no manufacturer warranty because you got it used. Some manufactures may honor it, but most warranties are on new, not used.
