Monster debuts new Lady Gaga earphones

The new $149 Heartbeats by Lady Gaga feature a more appealing design--and hopefully better sound.

Beats by Dr. Dre and Monster have rolled out a new set of Heartbeats earphones designed Lady Gaga that the company says were "inspired by leather and studs."

There's a tremendous amount of marketing garbage in the press release with all kinds of celebrity name-dropping, but suffice it to say, Monster is touting the Heartbeats' unique styling and "unprecedented level of audio performance."

All kidding aside, these Hearbeats do have a much more appealing design than the previous model, which featured a triangular, earring-like outer cover that people either loved or hated (I strongly suggest you check out former CNET editor Jasmin France's video review). We have a feeling they didn't sell incredibly well.

The new Heartbeats by Lady Gaga are available in two colors, black and gold, for $149. As soon as we get our hands on a pair, we'll let you know how they sound.
