Just for comparison:

Amazon has them for $59.99. Been that way for a few months.  Camelcamelcamel says the lowest in the past year was $49.99 on Amazon. 

 

So if saving $5 is a good deal to you, then yes.

Klipsch image one headphones for $49.99 at amazon. Anyone heard these? Worth buying?

If you like muddy bass and bright highs and no midrange and prefer lack of clarity/soundstage and more bass. Then... possibly.

Amperior and HD25-1 use the same driver. Both share the same spec, save the impedance. The "hip" version is easier to drive than the "pro" version, but to say one driver is inferior than the other is a stretch. It all comes down to marketing. It is like saying that the ER4S driver is better than the ER4P driver, when both use the same driver, but are tuned differently, with the ER4P being easier to drive and can be converted to an ER4S with a in-line impedance. This is why I laugh at some of these nonsense reviews on the amperior made by hd25 purists.

Hah!  Guess I'm going to pass.  Already have an Amperior anyways.  But seems like a decent price...

I read Focal Spirit Professional is an upgrade from Amperior. I wish they sell FSP for cheap price. What attract me the most is over ear. Too bad no killer deal for FSP.

They just came out. Give it time.

 

Focal usually is pricey on their entire product line, so don't expect them to drop any time soon.

Pink Velodyne VPulse $35

http://velodyne.com/special-offers/best-subwoofer-sale/vpulse-in-ear-headphones-2012-pink.html

Copy and pasted from slickdeals by iconian:

use code VPULSEFORME to drop to $45


I think there is some glitch there because if you create an account and check box to sign up for newsletters, you'll get 100 points for new account and 100 points for newletters, which totals to 200 points or $10


proceed to checkout, apply coupon code VPULSEFORME apply 200 points = $35 + free shipping

somehow, I don't think they were meant to work together

All of the 'poor quality', 'bad service' reviews scare me. :(

I've seen way more good reviews for the vPulse than bad though.

While I cannot speak for the rest of the Velodyne line, particularly the "free" vFree's that clogged up this thread for a few weeks, the vPulse exudes quality. I have had my pair (plus a second, newer pair still in the box) for at least 20 months, using them 5+ days a week (this includes extracting and storing them in the case: wear & tear). No problems whatsoever and, more importantly, they sound awesome! I even accidently ran over them with my office chair with no adverse effects (the same thing happened to my NuForce IEMs - one would think I had learned my lesson - and they were destroyed, hence the fortuitous purchase of the Velodynes).

Also, if you read the groupon goods fine print it says the products they sell are often from alternate sources and likely would not have the manufacturer warranty (my paraphrase).

$5 extra seems worth the peace of mind to me.

I think Currawong mentioned in a previous thread that he did not categorize Groupon in the the same vein as group buy sites that are not allowed here. Hopefully, he can clarify this in more detail.

 

On another note, Razordogaudio's ebay page has an open box (with full warranty) HE-500 for 519, plus I got an email that today you can get 4X the ebay bucks (or 8% back, I think). So if you shop on ebay frequently, this might be a good deal.
