And to top off her big week in tech, our favorite pop star Lady Gaga stars in a new ad from Monster to promote her Heartbeats by Lady Gaga earphones. Check out both ads (spoiler — they're both pretty great) when you read more
Speaking of Beats by Dr. Dre, Billboard magazine is reporting that Lady Gaga will also be making an announcement related to the line of headphones. A new design, perhaps? While spokespeople for the trade show say she's not scheduled to perform, I'm hoping that she characteristically surprises us with a performance!
So the Christmas holiday has passed, and you're basking in the glow of your new tech toys. Or are you? If you didn't exactly get what was on your wish list this holiday season, take matters into your own hands and hit the stores — there's plenty of gadgets out there that are worthy of your holiday gift cards.
When he's not perfecting his rumba or two step moves on Dancing With the Stars with partner Chelsie Hightower, professional snowboarder Louie Vito can be spotted with his high-class headphones — the Beats by Dr. Dre — which offer amazing audio clarity and extra large speaker drivers for exceptional deep bass. A pair will cost you $300, although you can pick up the in-ear Beats by Dr. Dre for only $150. For those hefty prices, you better use them for more than just a stylish neck accessory!
Labeled "heartbeats," these in-ear headphones were designed by Lady Gaga herself and are said to be like no other headphones out there (not hard to believe, especially since they have her name attached to them!). And if the sound quality is anything comparable to the high-class Beats by Dr. Dre headphones, you're guaranteed to get your money's worth. They also feature ControlTalk functionality so you can listen to your music and easily answer a phone call while on the go.

If you've always wanted to rock out like one of the most respected rappers in the music industry, then feast your eyes on these beauties — the Beats by Dr. Dre headphones. Set to make their debut this Friday, and retailing for $350 (I know, totally pricey, but hear me out before you get turned off), the Beats headphones are like what a Bentley is to cars — luxurious, high quality, and worth every penny.
Dr. Dre has teamed up with Monster to create headphones that offer deep bass, clarity and a high definition listening experience. With isolation technology, plush breathable cushions for your ears, and an included Monster iSoniTalk cable with a built-in answer button and mic for the iPhone, as I said, worth the dough-re-mi.
You'll notice in the pics below that the headphones come wrapped and packed in total perfection.
The Beats by Dr. Dre will be available at Apple and Best Buy stores. You can also get them online via these retailers as well.
