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.
In terms of bang for buck, the new Canon N Series cameras deliver. They’re small, light, & impressively powerful for their size, boasting built-in wi-fi for instant sharing. They also shoot 12.1 MP stills and full HD 1080 video. The sleek, all-new body design also features a 2.8-inch tilt-type touch screen for nailing the shot from any angle.
2013 will be the year of the 4K TV, the greatest, most cutting edge development in television in years. Tech jargon aside, image quality on 4K makes 3D HDTV look like listening to the game on the radio. This 65-inch behemoth from Sony with dual 65W speakers, TRILUMINOS display, Dynamic Edge LED backlight & wireless smartphone mirroring technology is so good it’s not even out yet.
The R1 Driver is fully adjustable allowing you to dial it in for exactly the shot you want. You can adjust upright loft between 8º & 12º for optimal arc as well as choosing one of 7 face angle options. Adjustable weights allow you to control distance-enhancing draw to neutral/straight to keep you on par at every hole. Source (Photo credit: David Dusek)
