Dr. Dre & Lady Gaga Create a Monster

Interscope Geffen A&M chairman Jimmy Iovine, Lady Gaga, and Dr. Dre reunited at New York City’s GILT at The New York Palace Hotel to unveil their new Monster headphones to the U.S. media on Wednesday (Sept. 30).

“It’s like I’m listening to it for the first time again,” Dre said about hearing his classic Chronic album through his Beats by Dr. Dre. “Having one of these headphones is just another fun part of going back and hearing it like this.”

What does Lady Gaga listen to on her Heartbeats by Lady Gaga? “I love pop music, but right now I’m actually listening to a lot of heavy metal and industrial music, which sounds fantastic on these headphones because it really gives the juice to the record,” revealed the “Poker Face” singer.

Gaga’s fashionable triangular headphones are available later this month in red chrome, bright chrome, and black chrome starting at $99.95, while a cheaper, lightweight version of Dre’s popular Beats, Beats Solo, goes on sale in November in black and white for $179.95.
