Are these good for the price?
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.
If you like muddy bass and bright highs and no midrange and prefer lack of clarity/soundstage and more bass. Then... possibly.
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.
All of the 'poor quality', 'bad service' reviews scare me. :(
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).

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.
