Heartbeats by Lady GagaLady Gaga‘s new jeweled headphones were inspired by the leather jackets she wore growing up.

The “Bad Romance” singer - whose headphones are part of the Beats by Dr. Dre collection from Monster - was speaking at the launch event in Los Angeles, when she said she thought they reflected her personality well.

“I wore studded leather jackets, me and my friends in New York. Lifestyle, grit, passion and love for music, freedom. These were the things I thought about when we were designing [the headphones]. So they really reflect a headphone that I just think is really great looking and represents who I am.”

Lady Gaga, whose real name is Stefani Germanotta, said her new headphones could be bought at Best Buy’s new Club Beats department in New York, as well as Amazon for around $100.

We’ve known for a while now that a edition of the headphone line was on the way (heck, the Beats Studio Edition appears in every single one of her music videos,) but we must admit, we didn’t know it would be it’s own standalone product! However, that is exactly what Monster Cable is giving us with the Heartbeats by Lady Gaga in-ear headphones. I’ve confirmed with Monster Cable that they aren’t just a rebranded version of the Beats by Dr. Dre Tour Edition, and they they have a sound and style all their own. Apparently, Lady Gaga helped with the design, and we can believe it, just by looking at the product. Other features include multiple eartips to suit all sizes of ear canal, a travel case, and a flat cable design that eliminates wire tangling.

The Heartbeats by Lady Gaga will hit stores in October, with prices ranging from $99 to $149.
