Lady Gaga unveils new pair of headphones

Androgynous megastar storms IFA with new headphones

International music star Lady Gaga brought some glamor to the IFA electronics fair in Berlin on Monday when she launched a new series of headphones developed with Monster Cable.

Lady Gaga, whose fashion and catchy lyrics have gained her a string of hits around the world, said the Heartbeats by Lady Gaga earbud headphones were designed to look like a pair of earrings while producing good quality audio.

"They are designed to be the first ever fashion accessories that double as the absolute best sonically sounding headphones in the world," said Lady Gaga. "These headphones look a lot like the jackets my friends and I wear in New York. They are all studded and metal."

The earbuds will be available in three colors: white, black and red.

"Red's the new pink," she said.

The launch of the new earbuds follows the Beats by Dr. Dre headphones that Monster launched late last year. As the name suggests, they were designed by music producer and artist Dr. Dre.

The headphones have just launch in Australia for an RRP of $135.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
