Hear Ye: Come October, head turner Lady Gaga will put out a set of fashion earphones for the Beats by Dr. Dre line (which, by the way, claim to be the “most advanced headphones ever developed”). Among all the celeb denim and large-chain diffusion lines, this is definitely one of the more unusual star fashion forays. Then again, you wouldn’t quite expect Gaga to put out a collection of separates for Wal-Mart. (Or would she? For the irony?)
Called Heartbeats, the line of futuristic, typically-Gaga designs feature triangular metallic charms on the outside of the earbuds, which are meant to double as flashy jewelry. On the cords: a fastening with her autograph. We see how die-hard fans might be pumped to drop the $100-$150 price to get closer to Gaga’s music. Where things get weird, however, is the press release, which is so corny it reads like a De Beers commercial. Says LG: “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…Wear Heartbeats, love each other, and celebrate the art and lifestyle of music.”
So, how does Heartbeats sound to you? Check out a few more images after the jump. [BeatsByDre.com via TrendHunter]
Gotta give her credit, the Heartbeats headphone line reads like pared down Lady Gaga concert getup.
They come in pink too, for the ladies. But the designs are mainly unisex. Which is not surprising.
