Shipping

We are currently shipping both US and International orders via UPS and the US Postal Service. At the time you place your order you will be given a choice of shipping methods and can review costs based on the method chosen. It is necessary to make the preliminary motions of placing an order and opening the shopping cart in order to view shipping costs, but this does not commit you to purchasing any items.

Whether by UPS or US Postal service, most microphones can be shipped to locations within the US for less than $10. For smaller items, such as adapters, shipping via US Postal Service can be as low as $2.

Order Processing Time

With only rare exceptions, we will process and ship orders the day they arrive, as long as your order is received by 3PM Eastern time or earlier on a weekday. Be aware that rapid shipping methods such as UPS Next Day and Second Day Air are based on "business days". A Next Day Air package shipped on a Thursday will arrive on Friday. If shipped on Friday, it will arrive on Monday.

Shipping Strategies (United States)

We recommend you consider the following when selecting a shipping method:

1. When ordering a small item, such as an ME3 adapter, iPhone/iPad adapter, etc., this type of product can ship extremely inexpensively (less than $2) via First Class Mail to U.S. locations and with typical shipping times of 2-3 days.

2. UPS Ground and USPS Priority Mail are fairly similar in cost for most single microphones. The advantage of UPS is more formal tracking and fairly immediate delivery to locations in the Northeast (Speech Recognition Solutions is located in New Hampshire). If you are outside of the Northeast, and particularly if you are in the far west, USPS Priority Mail tends to be much quicker (2-3 days for Priority Mail and 5-6 days for UPS Ground.

Please refer to the chart below to see expected (not guaranteed) shipment times for UPS Ground:

3. If you absolutely need a product quickly, you should select UPS Next Day or Second Day Air, but expect to pay a premium for these methods.

Shipping Strategies (International)

A large proportion of our overall business is outside of the United States and we do our best to provide some certainty and economy in international shipping. Here are the basic options:

1. For least expensive international shipping, choose First Class Mail International. This method has only one advantage: least cost. Items shipped this method go by some combination of air and ship and the postal service offers no estimates or guarantees of delivery time. You should expect at least a two week delivery time with this method, so choose this only if you are in no rush to receive your item.

2. For reasonably cost-effective shipping with an expectation of a reasonable shipping time, consider USPS Priority Mail International or Express Mail International. Both of these methods provide some crude tracking. Neither are downright inexpensive, but a lot less than UPS methods. Expect the following general delivery times for these methods:

  • USPS Priority Mail International: 7-14 days*
  • USPS Express Mail International: 3-5 days*

*These are estimates and not guarantees. Delays often occur in delivery country customs.

3. For the most rapid and predictable international delivery, you should choose one of the UPS International methods. These methods allow excellent tracking and rapid delivery ... at a significant cost. Here are the basic expectations provided by UPS:

Method Delivery Commitment Delivery Time
UPS Worldwide Express Plus 1-3 Business Days Typically by 8:30 or 9:00 am
UPS Worldwide Express 1-3 Business Days Typically by 10:30 am or 12:00 noon
UPS Worldwide Saver 1-3 Business Days By end of day
UPS Worldwide Expedited 2-5 Business Days By end of day
UPS Standard Variable By end of day
