    I wonder how many folks got more than one and plan on being a Good Samaritan and selling the "extra" ones here, on HF, or for a small profit on other sites.

    @AllanMarcus it's possible that happened but probably not many because MD limited it to one per person. So not only would you have to do it by using mutliple MD accounts but with each account you'd have to be able to successfully purchase the headphones, which was not easy!

    Good point.

    In the case of HD6X0 I feel comfortable that a manufacturing defect showing up after 30 days is unlikely. I would take that chance.

    On my original 650 I didn't snap the two tabs off and didnt put dynamat in the places of the snapped tabs. This pair sounds better simply following the mods that are around here instead of improvising and trying my own stuff. I put the dynamat in place of the snapped tabs and the bass is tighter. I should have followed the instructions from jump.

    Also I believe Massdrop will make another run. Its a no brainer. There hasn't been anything on their site to sell out so fast at such a large number. They haven't had these server difficulties before. I would expect these to outsell the K7XX as well.

    Ok, thanks. Somehow I thought people could get three.

    That was the original plan but when they had such massive response they decided to make it 1 a day or two before the drop.

    This is exactly why I snagged a 6XX. I'll be burning it in a bit then going all out. I'll probably be removing the spider completely though, and matting the entire ring.

    OK, I did order two pairs - it seems my phone was logged into massdrop FB and my PC on an email account. Looks like I will be reselling one pair.

    Looks like Massdrop is charging credit cards for the drop now. My payment status was in "Pending" up until this morning when I got an email from MD with my payment receipt. Checked my transactions and bank today and can confirm they did charge me.

    I may be interested if I haven't found a pair at the right price by then.

    Pair is most likely sold, you're 2nd dig if another user falls through.

    A little offtopic but I noticed there is an HD 800 in the promo shots for the Lake People HPA RS 08, is this the first time one has appeared on their site? Normally they tend to use photos of products they have drops for, right?

    Ignore my silly speculation, they've been pictured a few times now.

    Pretty safe to assume that an aftermarket/balanced cable for the HD650 will work with the 6XX, eh?

    Just got an email from Massdrop stating that I can still join this drop. I'm really not interested but, in the spirit of the season if anyone is interested I'll purchase a pair and you can have them at the Massdrop price shipped. I have until Wednesday to make payment so anyone interested can pm me.

    I got an email today too! I guess we have entered phase II inviting the next people on the list to fill the spots of cancellations and people who didn't respond to the first wave of post-drop invites.

    While I do not "need" a set of HD6XX (have both original "first year" and current "this year" HD650 as it is), and would absolutely defer to someone that wanted a set of HD6XX to listen with, if there's a spare set going for MSRP + shipping/fees to 98053, I'll take them.

    This is mostly directed at anyone that opted into the drop and has since decided they don't want the headphones after all.

    Mostly I want a pair to color-match the paint against! ;)
