Not yet, it took some time for postage within US (almost coast to coast) and now on the way to buyandship's HK warehouse. Should be arriving warehouse this 2 days, then only ship to Malaysia.

I think end of next week or so only I will receive.

ive been using ezipoz (official pos malaysia/ singapore post forwarding service) for my purchases from massdrop that have no straight shipping to malaysia.

for massdrop free local USA postage, it normally takes 4-5 working days from massdrop warehouse to ezipoz warehouse located in portland i think? and then an extra day or 2 for the item to be registered inside ezipoz account.
if you choose fast postage from usa to malaysia, it normally takes 7 working days +/-.

so total postage time is around 2 weeks+. The last time i purchased HD58x, i paid rm100+ like that for the total postage fee including insurance (i declared the item price under rm500).

They used skynet and only gave me the tracking number today, and it arrived! I only declared 60 USD and didn't kena kastam.
Damn the box is huge. I am at office now and can't wait to unbox today.

The box blew me away, it feels like buying a RM3000 cans.
But the plastics of the HD6xx is a little disappointing compared to the box quality lol. While I understand it's a steal to get HD650 sound at this price, I hope the plastic can be made of sturdier material.

Nevertheless, I have had eargasms in the past days. Perfectly fitting my song genres.

Now I have retired my ol' Alessandro MS-1. I went back and couldn't believe the sound difference.

Is there any update on the new HD6XX material? Cause my first batch HD6XX and my friend second batch are both similar if not the same material quality with HD650 as far as I am concerned.

I don't think HD6XX and HD650 is ever the same in the material, especially the band. Have you seen a HD650 in person?

I tried HD650 and the band's plastic is more solid and harder material. HD6XX is lighter, slightly more airy. Not like it will break but just feels different.

EDIT: I read on a reddit thread that it's the same material just different paint. I never had a HD650 and HD6XX side by side so I can't really compare, it was just based on my impression. Maybe the paint made the 650 feels more premium haha.

Yeah it's the same material, just different paint. I had them side by side once at a meetup.

I love it a lot with cavalli amps, any kind really. But I thought it sounded best with my previous ECP amp.

Thanks for the feedback guys. I myself using the 6XX with Audio-GD NFB-1AMP & Audio-GD R2R-1 DAC. Running balance. Budget setup.

Just to get some idea from you guys if I plan to get different taste someday.

Yeah been eyeing La Figaro 339 for quite sometime but I don't have experience with tube amps just yet. Not sure if the stock tubes that comes with the 339 are good.
