Great sound meets eye-catching fashion
Pop music/fashion icon Lady Gaga teamed up with Monster to create these in-ear headphones for style-conscious music fans. Monster's Lady Gaga Heartbeats reproduce your music with pumping lows, rich mids, and clear highs. An assortment of soft silicon ear tips lets you find a snug, comfortable fit — there are five sizes, in all. The ear tips also help block out unwanted external noise, for a more enjoyable listening experience.

ControlTalk — built-in controls for iPod® and iPhone®
A remote built into the headphone cable lets you control music playback without having to dig your compatible iPod or iPhone out of your pocket. You can even answer calls on your iPhone hands-free, thanks to the in-line microphone.

Wired with Monster Cable for better sound
These headphones include some of Monster's best cable technologies, too. Ultra-fine conductors and a patented Magnetic FluxTube™ design faithfully deliver even the most subtle details in your music. Plus, the flat, durable cord resists tangles and helps give these earbuds their distinctive look.
