    Took a punt on the new tws earphone from Xiaomi. Got a 256 GB Samsung micro SD and a Shanling M0. My DM6 should arrive in the next 10 days too. The wait is going to be be agonising

    Wow, not a bad deal at all.

    That would have been nice to know sooner than a few hours before 11.11 ended. I may have actually ordered one of those fukubukuros!

    I was only limited by the purse, no real self control involved. :D

    Attached are my 11/11 stats for shipping to western Canada in 2016. At the time "aliexpress standard shipping" was China Mail registered...which subsequently took up to 165 days (160 of which within Canada). Today, "aliexpress standard shipping" is "expedited parcel" and takes typically 2-3 weeks (same with packet). Typical for all other shipping methods is 2-3 months. USA may not have such internal delays based on domestic postal politics.

    Alas, it was not to be -- for now. I suspect it will make its way to me at some point. :)

    I tend to avoid unregistered parcels. There’s no way to track them.

    Well, even tracked stuff isnt guaranteed not to be flaky.

    I’ve had a few things be stuck in tracking hell for a month (saying “left country of origin”). Then it magically shows up at my doorstep (with the tracking never updating at all).

    I’ve also had 1 package be in transit (according to tracking), and then never show up period. It’s still in transit a year later.

    The vast majority of stuff is ok.

    I don’t fret about it though. I don’t order anything from China that I’m in a rush for, regardless of the shipping method or whether it had tracking or not. If I had choice I would prefer epacket just because it’s a little faster. But I’m perfectly happy with the untracked stuff too (it just takes forever).

    Out of hundreds and hundreds of packages over the years, I’ve only ever had a handful get lost. All the others were just a matter of playing the waiting game (which a lot of people can’t handle since amazon has spoiled everyone).

    Given all that information, I would like to make a predication/educated guess. I think if you look at the Nicehck new products page everything is there:
    SHMCI C5
    Nicehck FW6
    nicehck 16 core silver plated cable

    Disclaimer: This is only a wild guess, I have no knowledge on what they are giving out.

    I did order the $10 lucky bag, so I think that it is one of 3-4 possiblilites on that page as well. DT6, Zs4, IM1,ZSN. I'm thinking most likely the IM1, or the DT6. I hope it is not the DT6 because I ordered one just because it's a different config (DD+BA+piezo)

    If it is like the last lucky bag which was an earbud it will be a new product. The info on the product page does indicate that.

    I am looking forward to receiving mine.

    I’m looking forward to getting all my 11.11 stuff too (eventually) :)

    I just went in on the cheap lucky bag. The other is is too much to spend on randomness that I really do not need.

    Me, too. BUT: Even China Mail registered cannot be tracked within Canada [only epacket and expedited parcel...no one will send a $1 adapter with that method; and pricey stuff will automatically be shipped fast and registered]. And: I have received every single aliexpress shipment so far.

    Since 2016, aliexpress has somewhat adjusted to the Canadian problems. At the time, two years ago, I had absolutely no clue of/experience with shipping methods.
