Just a heads up, and it still qualifies as a deal.

It will connect at 1080P, but it will downsample to 720p via the TV.

The signal is displayed at 1080p. I also confirmed by connecting my laptop @1920x1080.

I believe bhazard is right about the down sample, I can connect my laptop n PS3 thru 1080p to my 720p in my bedroom but it still looks worse than my 1080p capable tv in the living room.

A quick google search will also tell you that your tv is down sampling!

Back to deals... Looking for some gym IEMs for rock climbing, any suggestions?

In a pinch, you could use the IEMs as chocks, but you might want to get them re-cabled, first!

It's a hardware limitation. If your tv has only 720p worth of pixels, no software or equipment is going to create more pixels. And no, TV manufacturers don't purposely gimp the same 1080p TV to become a 720p tv to create multiple market price points. That does happen in the graphics card and headphone industry though.

OK, just wanted to report on a deal I went for that I saw on this site. Monster refurbished Copper iems for a good price, about $120 if I remember correctly. They called and emailed me to cancel the deal today, said they were out of stock on them. Frankly, I feel if they offered more than they could supply, they should honor the deal and provide me with new ones. In the past I had tried to contact them when I had quality problems with theirs headphones, and didn't hear back, but they had no problem finding me this time. I will avoid Monster products in the future-many companies treat their customers better (and have better quality control).

Meh, It happens to most manufacturers. Especially third party sellers on amazon. They don't have the right number of headphones in stock displayed, so many transactions end up going through when real-time stock is 0. They just end up canceling the transaction later on, and the refund comes in a few days later. Pretty pathetic and a waste of time. But what can you do?

Well, I don't think it's right when it happens with 3rd party sellers either, but when it's the manufacturer's own site, I really think it stinks. But, as you say, not much you can do.

Everytime I see a deal listed for these, I feel I have to comment that I really like these…good buy.

I guess I am one of the lucky ones. I received mine, full new retail package and have been enjoying them ever since. However, my father ordered at the same time and heard nothing for a couple weeks - called in and they canceled his order saying that they were unavailable. What is frustrating is that they popped up on the Monster site and this thread with additional stock a couple of times after placing his order so they were obviously available.

Out of stock right now, more to come.

Thanks. I have the KRK 6400. They're excellent. From all I've heard, the 8400s are just that much better. I ordered a couple of sets for family. No rush. The Feb delivery suits me.

 

This is a bargain, BTW. If I weren't in the process of deciding which headphones I need to let go, I'd get a set for me too!

I wanted the amperior because (I always wanted the hd25ii) since they came out, the thing is, I don't need on ears headphones (actually don't like supra aural), and every month these are calling me... buy me... buy me...

Seriously. I hate on-ears. I never find them comfortable. I've owned the HD25-1ii. And the Amperior. And the HD25 Aluminum. I hate the comfort every time...and yet I'm always tempted to try again!
