Motörhead is the loudest band in the world. For 37 years, these British headbang pioneers have been cranking out hard-hitting rock albums and never once have they played a ballad, a slow-jam, or bent over for record label brass to produce a radio-friendly slab of suck. Nope, not bastards. For them it’s strictly whiskey-fueled shredding at a breakneck pace & punishing volume. Their new line of headphones, available in earbud and over-ear styles, are stamped with the classic Motörhead logo and built heavy-duty with oversize drivers for total ear drum destruction. And we’d expect nothing less.
