Dr Dre, Lady Gaga Launch New IEMs

beats by gaga Dr Dre, Lady Gaga Launch New IEMs

Looks like Dr Dre and Interscope Chairman Jimmy Iovine are at it again, this time they brought Lady Gaga on board.

Earlier this week at IFA 2009 in Berlin, Dr Dre, Jimmy, and Gaga along with Monster Cable announced a new pair of IEMs dubbed “Heartbeats by Lady Gaga”. And let me tell you, they are gauche—a word I’ve never had the pleasure of using until now.

Lady Gaga had this to say about her new IEMs in the press release: “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.”

Uh– yeah. Gaga’s ‘phones, which will retail for $99.95 – $149.95, include a red carrying case, an assortment of tip sizes, and will be available in several colors. No, you certainly won’t be able to read her poker face, not with these stylish yield signs headphones distracting you.

Be sure to look for them on store shelves next month, or don’t.

I bet they’ll sell like fresh bread. And the only reason for that is that they’re “made by Lady Gaga”. Me? I don’t like that chick’s music and I wanna see a real test on these.

Lady Gaga is a man.

It really doesn’t matter what these headphones sound like, they will still probably sell well. There’s already a big enough market for “fashionable” audio accessories. Just look at Skull Candy. They’re some of the worst headphones I’ve tried, yet I see young people with them everywhere because they “look cool”. I’m sure the companies behind these products are just using the music artists for marketing, and the artists are just doing it for a big fat paycheck.

if I was loaded with dough, I would buy a pair just to cut/burn them :p

@skimhitz: Well these don’t even look cool. Still, people are gonna buy them.

I don’t see how that could be front page news… shouldn’t we rather ignore such junk and concentrate on phones that are made for music reproduction, not as a fashion accessory?

If they are good as Lady GuyGuy’s music then they’ll be crap.
