for germany +19% VAT and + 2% foreign custom (custom depends on the type of product, imho it is 2% for head phones), so would be nearly 880 $ (673€)
for 700€, you could get them from amazon (first find in google :)
Correction: custom would only be 2% not 4%, (TARICbut even with this, not a good deal :(
Im in the same boat looking to get the HE-500 from Hifiman Direct as the price difference in the UK is sickening. How is $699 equilavent to £695 complete joke. Anyway got the price and postage contacted duty and custom helpline ordering from USA £553 to bring it in to the UK total.
|Total customs value:||US$724.00|
|Total import duty & taxes due:||US$169.56|
|Total landed cost:||US$893.56|

Hm, there's a chance Head-Direct will mark down the cost of the package so that you won't have to pay for as much tax. Try contacting their customer service and ask about this before/right after you order. Also, HE500s will likely be shipped to you from directly from their Hong Kong factory, not from USA.

Delivery time seems a bit long though.
