Monster Heartbeats get US launch info

Monster Cable late this afternoon provided greater details of its Lady Gaga-influenced Heartbeats in-ear headphones. The fashion-oriented audio will come in three models for the US and will sell only through Best Buy. They start with a model that goes without an in-line mic/remote combo. It should ship in black, all-chrome and rose/silver colors and will officially sell for $120 on October 18th, though Best Buy already lists them for $100.

A second variant with the in-line controls will come in a basic black version for $150 in late October. A rose/silver version with the same controls as a Haute Couture edition for $180 but won't ship until sometime before the holidays.

All three are said to have audio tuned much like the existing Beats Tour but with a crystal-like design. Their remotes will support voice features on the iPhone and second- or third-generation iPod touch units and will provide basic track navigation on most modern iPhones and iPods, including the third-generation iPod shuffle.
