“Lady Gaga explains her motivation behind “Heartbeats by Lady Gaga”: “In the deepest hour of the night, I confess to myself three things; I would die if I was forbidden to write, forbidden to love, or forbidden to fashion. Heartbeats embody the trinity of my human-being, with one additional vow: that SOUND matters. Wear Heartbeats, love each other, and celebrate the art and lifestyle of music.”
“Heartbeats by Lady Gaga” are designed to give users a high-performance headphone option that literally doubles as a high-tech fashion accessory or attractive piece of jewelry. They feature a multi-faceted, glossy surface and high-tech build materials, with a jewel-inspired earpiece cosmetic. The headphones are available in three separate 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. The headphones are outfitted with a specially design stylish and tangle-free cable.
The new “Heartbeats by Lady Gaga” come in a beautifully designed red carrying case and an assortment of eartips to ensure maximum comfort and fit for every wearer. They also feature Monster’s exclusive flat cable design that not only integrates into the look and feel of Heartbeats, but makes them tangle-resistant.
