Monster Wants You to Feel Lady Gaga's Heartbeat
You've heard of Beats by Dr. Dre, the high-end headphones that are the brainchild of rapper Dr. Dre, Interscope Chairman Jimmy Iovine and headphone makers Monster? The top of the line headphones are specially designed to pick up every nuance of your favorite music, enhancing the listening experience. Maybe the Hip-Hop stylings of the legendary rapper/producer aren't your cup of tea, but what about the synth-heavy dance tracks of Lady Gaga? The "Just Dance" singer has teamed with "Beats by Dre" to announce the next line in the popular Beats series, the "Heartbeats by Lady Gaga".
Set to hit stores in October, the Heartbeats are a brilliant mashup of technology and fashion. Noel Lee, Head Monster, noted: "Heartbeats not only had to look great, they had to sound great. Using Monster's latest headphone technologies, that vision comes true. There is no headphone that sounds quite like it, regardless of price..."
The headphones, available in three versions, "including a metal body with rose red jewel-shaped earpiece, metal body with all chrome jewel-shaped earpiece and black-on-black body and jewel-shaped earpiece design," were designed by Lady Gaga herself. They resemble futuristic jewelry thanks to the glossy finish and multi-faceted ear buds attached to special tangle-free cable that's big on style. The headphones also come with an assortment of different sized ear buds to ensure a perfect fit.
In addition to the glam-rock looks, Heartbeats comes with ControlTalk, a new feature that enables users to rock out to their favorite song and answer their phones without having to fumble through purses or pockets. The headphone cable has a high grade microphone integrated into the system along with an answer button so calls are only a button press away. ControlTalk is compatible with 3GS iPhone, and the newer BlackBerry model as well as most iPods and portable music devices.
Available for pre-order, Heartbeats by Lady Gaga come in a stylish red case and are retailing between $99.95 - $149.95. depending on the color and feature option. But if you're feeling lucky, you can go to Lady Gaga's official site and enter the Heartbeats Giveaway contest where a pair of Heartbeats are being given away every day for 30 days.
