1#
Hi, I recently purchased some headphones, SKU: EP331B . I purchased EMS shipping , with the tracking ID 

EE382421371CN


I just went to http://www.ems-tracking.net, to check the status, and it says:
'

Is this normal? I'd contact Live Services, but they aren't online right now. And I know it'll take1-2weeks for me to receive my item, but when I came across this, it just doesn't seem right. Hopefully someone can shed some light on this, and I still get my item.

it probably mean that costoms check the package, if its checked, and it does not give any problem it will be send out asap to your country.

That is normal... Dont worry... EMS always writes that when the package arrives in destination country! You will get the package in a few days :) Best is always to use your local post office for example correos.es or dhl.de I dont know where you are.. Cos they will have better tracking info once the package is in your country


Edit: Ok so maybe package is still in china not sure now. What does local post office tracking say?

Depending in which country you live, customs could confiscate the headphones, if they think it is a fake (what they are).

Thanks for your replies guys. I live in New Zealand. Just checked it out now, and here's what it says:

It says 'New Zerland' for some reason, but thats a minor mistake, so I'm hoping it still makes its way to me. From what I can see though, it looks like my headphones are almost here :P. Will update you guys when I get it!
NB: The apparent mistype of 'New Zealand' means I can't see it on Google Maps. But Auckland is in New Zealand, so its still made its way to the right country. Not too sure what FKD means though.
