Has anyone ever dealt with B&H?

What shipping option should I choose? I live in Canada, so I was thinking USPS, but I can't seem to find it as a option. Here are the options:

US Mail - Airmail Parcel Post $21.00
US Mail - Global Express Mail $29.95
UPS Expedited $27.00
UPS Express $33.00
Fedex Economy $53.50
Fedex Priority $65.50

Can someone help me out?
BTW, this is for a EMU 0404.

Yes, I've ordered many things from B&H

USPS is United States Postal Service
which another way of saying "US Mail"

So you want the first two options. It will take up to 2 weeks typically to get the package (the delay is always due to Customs who is slow in processing)

I bought my 880's and 501's from them. No problems at all.

Oh, thats great. From B&H's website, it seems that if I choose US Mail - Airmail Post, it would take approx 7-10 bussiness days, but if I choose US Mail - Global Express, it would only take approx 2-3 bussiness days.

5 out of 5 stars...

B&H and J&R are the 2 very best in NYC. I love them both but B&H is geared more toward the professional photographer.

(make sure you check out the specials and open box items, too)

B&H is one of THE most unique stores I have ever been to...with conveyor belts on the ceiling going all over the place and almost 99.9% of the people who work there are Ultra Orthodox Jews (dressed ultra traditionally, too).

VERY nice people and extremely knowledgeable. If you are in no hurry go with the cheapest S&H. They do great packaging, too.

Have fun shopping and sorry about your wallet!

With Express, you should probably expect it around 4-5 business days if you add in the time it's stuck at the Customs.

If you REALLY want it fast, pay the big bucks and go for the top Fedex Priority option, it will be in your hands overnight.

I just saw this part of your post.

Why even bother ordering it from the US?

You can buy the 0404 in Long and McQuade music stores

There's two in Vancouver, call them up, and the price is going to be comparable if not cheaper.

Oh, I didn't know that. Thanks for the suggestion.

FWIW If you end up ordering from B&H they are excellent resellers.

Another happy B&H customer here.
I can't help you on the shipping to Canada though. Sorry.

Believe it or not, I've spent more money at B&H in the past two years (non headphone gear) than I have on headphones.

That's not hard considering they sell pro photo, audio, video, computer equipment. It's like a dream store for gadget philes.

The only problem is that they don't let you try out the headphones in the store anymore... and they have SUCH a good collection for sale!

My impression of BH is that it's really a place for people that already know exactly what they want, and want to buy from a reputable place with the best selection and good policies.
