Let $X$ be a compact Hausdorff space. In this paper, we give an example to show that there is $u\in \mathrm{C}(X)\otimes \mathrm{M}_n$ with $\det (u(x))=1$ for all $x\in X$ and $u\sim_h 1$ such that the $\mathrm{C}^*$ exponential length of $u$ (denoted by $cel(u)$) can not be controlled by $\pi$. Moreover, in simple inductive limit $\mathrm{C}^*$-algebras, similar examples also exist.
