HE-5..initial musings - Page 36

post #526 of 1668
EMS Tracking finally has some detail for my pair. It says as of today, they are in Shanghai. Less than I had hoped, but if higher end headphone gear has taught me anything, it is a zen-like patience.

^third; how is it still in China after 4 days? (Mine shipped Monday)
post #529 of 1668
Well I don't want to stress you, but my pair got stuck in China for 16 days before reaching North America.

Don't worry,EMS are the best,as good if not better than UPS and DHL etc
at least in my country,i'm not sure how they perform in China.

I received e-mail notice that my order shipped on Dec 1st using USPS express mail from Shanghai. But when I click on the tracking link provided in that e-mail notice, I get a message stating "There is no record of this item". Has anyone else had this issue?

It's typical EMS, give it time, it will show up.

have you tried entering the tracking number in the "Online tracking" section ? The EMS website is not always the most reliable: sometime it tells me "error" or "There is no record of this item" and a couple of attempts later, it all works perfectly.
Anyway, the HE-5 are well worth the wait and I still prefer EMS to UPS/FEDEX; no crazy brokerage fees..

My shipping e-mail notification says that my headphones are shipping via USPS Express mail, not EMS. So how can I use the USPS tracking number on the EMS website? Here is a copy of the notification:

Hello Steven,

Great news! Your order has shipped, and should arrive soon. Your credit card has successfully been charged for this order. Track USPS package #EE XXXXXXXXXCN express mail from shanghai.

I blanked out the actual tracking number for security. When I click on the track package link, I get a response saying "no record of this item". Anyone else get this?

Thanks shotmaker,
I just tried the USPS tracking number on the EMS site and it worked!!! The link on e-mail notification never worked. It appears that my headphones just got dispatched from the sorting center in Shanghai 4 days after my initial shipping notification. At this rate, I may get it for Christmas. Atleast I can see that the package is moving now.

More likely 5-7 business days to reach the plane in Shanghai. I would assume about a month before we would have them in our hands.

^That isn't my experience with EMS. Everything in the past has been inside of two weeks and some about 5 days.

Amazing as it sounds, my 2 Audio-GD shipments took only 2-3 days to be delivered via DHL with tracking available almost immediately.

must admit, the phrase 'initial musings' cracks me up big time :-)

Took five working days from the moment I placed an order till arrival.
