Headphones for headbangers. I ordered myself a pair. Will get back to you with a review.

Here’s the hype from Motörheadphones’ website:

We all love the deep, low, warm feeling of that body-shuddering sound called ‘bass’. It rumbles through your chest like a juggernaut, feeling like it’s coming from within instead of a speaker off in the distance. Unfortunately most headphone makers (in a desperate hunt to achieve that warm low end) end up sacrificing the presence and dynamics in the mid and high end areas of the sound spectrum. The result is no warm low end body-shuddering bass experience.

And you lose the guitar sound, because in this misguided attempt to achieve the warm low end, the low/mid range is also lost. A double negative really. One which we weren’t prepared to engage in.

When we at Motörheadphönes developed our headphones, we immediately went to the very top of the professional headphone range as a bench mark. Why wouldn’t we? We want to make the best, so we refer to the best of the best.

Another thing we realized, was that most of the music we listen to today, is guitar-based rock and pop. There was nothing which allowed for the heavy rock experience, nothing which could accommodate the crushing power of loud rock’n’roll.

Obviously somebody needed to do something, and that somebody was the iconic Motörhead, the genuine road warriors for the last three decades. This is why we can now, after hard work and collaboration, proudly present Motörheadphönes, by rockers for rockers.

Does the volume control go to 11?
