I dont think they make de shiit stack anymore. You gotta buy them seperatly or get Fulla 2 or Jotunheim.
It was always sold separately, people just call it the Schiit stack because they are the same size so they stack easy and nicely. It's the Magni and Modi.

I just got mine from the last drop in summer and my costs were $22.xx. I'm not sure what that amounted to, it's too low for tax, and there was no summary. Massdrop is pretty hit and miss with taxes/duty. Some people get charged, others don't.

As for the headphones, I'm upgrading from a Sennheisser HD555 (modded, if it matters) and it sounds great and seems pretty well built. The only downside is the cord is very short, maybe 5ft?

I agree with the Beyerdynamic DT770's. Those are the best headphones I've ever owned (also own V-Moda M100's and Audio Technica M50x). Much prefer closed back vs open. But to each his own.
How are the Audio Technica M50x? Ive always wanted to get my hands on a pair to try them on. Similar to Senn HD650?

HD650 is open back, and M50x is closed, so chances of them being similar is pretty slim.

Mine which I paid for in the summer shipped early and it was dispatched 2 days ago. Still stuck in NYC. It looks like they are shipping out with DHL Parcel International Direct. I'll update if I need to pay any tax/duty/brokerage.

Edit: I paid $22.81 at the P.O. A sticker on it says that $10 is for brokerage by DHL.

Is this worth buying right now? I got a pair of HD 598 coming in tomorrow but I'm debating if I should return them and order the HD 6XX instead. The only reason why i'm debating right now is because I want to know how long would it take to get a pair if I were to order right now. I don't want to wait like 2-3 months for them.

Be warned, this was about $400 CAD after conversion, shipping and duties.
Ouch, unless you're a baller stick to a $100 pair of headphones bought and sold in Canada.

There's always a wait, go and read the discussion area of the deal you are looking for on Massdrop.

This seems like a good deal but wouldn't be as good value per dollar as my Philips SHP-9500. That said, it is very hard to put value on good sound.
I always wonder about all these dumb model names... the Sennheiser HD 598 SR is $180 on Amazon Canada and the 9500's are $200 on Amazon and both of them if ordered from Canada would arrive much faster than Massdrop and are half the price. Apparently, the 650's are pretty awesome though.

Just want to point out that the SHP 9500S is regularly sold at Newegg between 59.99 and 69.99. A quick search will show you all the times it's hit this price point. Value wise it's unbeatable but obviously some trade offs for $200 to $300 less.

How do you find out the last prices the headphones were?

A quick search is disingenuous. I couldn't find this information you are speaking of.
