That's cool. Never happened to me :-(

In my experience, whenever you buy something from the east there's a considerably higher chance you won't have to pay the taxes. Ordering from the west or from EU this happens very rarely.

I'm fully expecting that I'll have to pay the 25% + ~$30 to have these in my hands.

Okay, I'm not angry--I'm not mad. I just want to know how well the HF-2 performs with a variety of genres (classical, jazz, acoustic, hip-hop, etc.). Thank you.

As everyone is so anal about which genre goes with which can. These are Grado's they are Rock and some like Classical with them alot. I personally enjoy all genres with Grado when Im ready to really be into it. When I want to listen and be less detail than another story.

Regardless, these are a Head-Fi supporting item, you buy them for that, plus since so many people said they sound wonderful at MEETS. Imagine them to sound better at home with less noise. Grado HF Series are not such an informed purchase as by the time there are great reviews they will not be sold anymore. So if you like Grado, or have curiousity GET THESE. You won't regret it and if you do there is a 30 Day Gaurantee Money-Back. Nothing to lose just do it before its too late.

I am getting mine at the expensive of my bills atm. I am a little nuts but the way I love my HF-1 I can't turn this down just because I was laidoff :P

Just another 3 weeks max before we get our HF-2s! YAY! Only 6 weeks of waiting from order date

Regarding customs, basically most places in the US, EU or 'west' that are businesses will not underdelcare because there can be severe penalties for doing so and no business owner wants to get in to that kind of trouble. The people sending stuff from China have less reservations about that and maybe their laws are less strict about declaring value.

You don't have to pay customs fee for importing the HF2 to AUS because its under the $1K threshold....

Good thing Im in the US and we pay none of at all minimal taxes for customs. Might change though with Obama hiring more people. But sometimes it's nice being an American

I hope the HF-2 is a good can for Jazz which is what I listen too over 95% of the time. My RS-1 are excellent IMO for Jazz and I am hoping the HF-2 provide a different flavor while retaining the Grado house sound. I was debating getting the RS-2 again which sound IMO quite a bit different to the RS-1 but ended up w/ the HF-2. Time will tell.

Wow, you liked the RS-1 for Jazz? Interesting. Is it all kinds of Jazz music? I'm doubtful if the HF-2s will beat out my HD650s, but now I'm interested to find out.

See my comments about HF-2 vs RS-2 and RS-1 earlier on - the HF-2 is a great mashup of the two, so you get richer more intimate jazz vocals without losing the larger soundstage of the RS-1. (in a nutshell)

So RS-2 sound fairly different from RS-1 not just a muffled RS-1? I really need to find a way to hear all the higher Grados. If they sound much more different than I think and not just increased soundstage, control, details.
