We give you a look at the Monster Gratitude in-ear headphones, a collaboration between Monster CEO Noel Lee and the band Earth Wind & Fire. Some of the highlights of the Gratitude in-ear headphones include unique noise isolation to keep the music sounding good and outside noise out. The headphones are tuned to make live music and instrumentals sound amazing, and fans of that style of music will love the Gratitude in-ears. The headphones also feature a flat cable design that makes it so that the cables don't get tangled, a ControlTalk in-line mic and volume control so you can use them to take calls with your smartphone, a premium rose gold finish, and two protective carrying cases. You can pick up the Monster Gratitude headphones on Amazon.

Looks like the Monster Cable / Lady Gaga / Dr. Dre triumverate (with Jimmy Iovine playing coach) is teaming up again to bring the Lady Gaga Heartbeats into 2011. The Heartbeats 2.0 get a redesign, bringing the updated look of the earbuds more in line with how Gaga herself has been styling herself as of late. That means weird pyramid-shaped studs coming off the side of the earbud, and a spikey looking earpiece as well. You see, these match the ridiculous pyramid bumps that Gaga has been wearing on her face while promoting her new Born This Way album...but stay with us here. Monster is promising awesome clarity and deep base that can be turned up to deafening levels without distortion, and since it has a microphone on the flat, tangle-proof wire, you can even use them to take phone calls. See? It's not just all talk, we already know that Lady Gaga loves fine gadgets. You can pre-order the Heartbeats 2.0 now on Amazon.

Hot on the heels of the Heartbeats by Lady Gaga headphone news, we now have word on another new line in the Beats by Dr. Dre line - the Beats Solo. As you can see from the image, the Beats Solo is a smaller, lighter, and sleeker take on the Beats by Dr. Dre Studio headphones. Monster Cable aimed to make these headphones a lot more portable, while maintaining the great sound that the Studio edition is known for. Since we haven’t gotten our hands on these, we can’t confirm that, but we do know that the price is a lot more palatable for the masses. The Beats Solo will be available in November in black and white, and will cost $219.95. That’s $80 less than the larger Studio model.
We’ve got an image of the black version for you after the jump.
