Just bought one. Shipping to Malaysia. My very first pair of planar magnetic headphones. Super excited.
It gonna take you several months probably.
Took 'em 2 weeks to ship to my office here in Malaysia.
Yeah, that’s what i reckoned since they use DHL Global Mail. Thanks for the reply mate and how do you find it?
I’m liking it so far, waiting to get an Aune X1S to pair with it. might get some extra lamnskin pads for ‘em too.
Any issues with Customs (GST etc)? I just ordered my HE4XX. Previously ordered the Pinnacle Px which arrived with no hassle to my office in PJ.
Ordered mine on 5/12/17 and until today 6/1/18 still has not received them. Was held by customs but assigned Poslaju to handle the GST. After that no news.
I ordered on 10th December and received on 21st December. No customs tax. Also via Poslaju. Maybe you should call Poslaju and ask them what’s the status.
Ordered mine on 19th Dec, DHL shipped out to Malaysia on 28th Dec. After that no more updates. So I called DHL Malaysia last friday -5th Jan. (1 week after last update). My units are supposed to arrive in KLIA on 12th Jan (this friday) and then will be handled by Pos Malaysia from thereon. I'm thinking best case scenario for me to receive it is next Friday (19th Jan). I'm assuming the delay is mainly due to the holiday season.
UPDATE: My units arrived in Malaysia on 6th Jan. Awaiting customs clearance apparently.
Yeah, quite a long wait. Guess I was lucky to have received it very fast. Now waiting for my fully balanced silver plated cable to arrive from eBay. That will truly bring out the best of these planars.
There’s is not tax for headphones here in Malaysia since 2017. So you shouldn’t be taxed. I’ve ordered so many headphones and never got taxed.
Yeah, I didn't get taxed for my Pinnacle Px.
I wasn't charged import duty but GST.
Anyway I've received the headphones on 8/1/18. Went to collect them at Poslaju Balakong. Turned out they've been there since 30/12/17 but nobody called me to colllect them. I only knew that they've been sent there when I called Poslaju KLIA.
glad you received the headphones. How much gst did you pay? You paid to poslaju?
I paid RM49 for GST and RM48 for handling of clearance. All paid to Poslaju when i went to collect the headphones.
I see. That means there’s no consistency on gst collection here. How come i didn’t have to pay anything? depends on the mood of the customs officer on duty, perhaps?
In my case, Pos Malaysia called me today and told me my goods are with Malaysian Customs in KLIA. The question was if I want to self-collect or appoint Pos M'sia as my agent. So I authorised Pos M'sia to act as my agent and informed them that the goods are headphones. Let's see if I get charged GST.
Turns out I need to pay GST and Pos Malaysia for the processing and clearance. I think GST is based on random inspections by customs. If customs happens to inspect your package, tough luck, you pay the GST.
