I was reading a Yahoo article covering CES ( http://news.yahoo.com/smart-potty-dumb-idea-wacky-gadgets-ces-214446443--finance.html ) and saw that there were headphones there. They are officially called "Motorheadphones" and are being endorsed by the band Motorhead. Apparently they are the metalhead's response to the Beat's by Dre headphones.
I'll paste what was said in the article:
Bass-heavy headphones that borrow the names of hip-hop luminaries like Dr. Dre have become extremely popular. Rock fans have been left out of the party — until now. British metal band Motorhead, famous for playing gut-punchingly loud, is endorsing a line of headphones that "go to eleven" and are hitting U.S. stores now.
Says lead singer and bassist Lemmy Kilmister, explaining his creative input: "I just said make them louder than everybody else's. So that's the only criteria, and that it should reflect every part of the sound, not just the bass."
The Motorheadphone line consists of three over-the-ear headphones and six in-ear models. The initiative came from a Swedish music-industry veteran, and distribution and marketing is handled by a Swedish company, Krusell International AB.
WHO IT'S FOR: People who don't care about their hearing or of the sanity of person sitting next to them on the subway. According to Kilmister, the headphones are ideal for Motorhead fans. "Their hearing is already damaged, they better buy these."
I honestly don't see how you can have quality headphones where loudness is "the only criteria". Do you guys think that they might sound good? I know that celebrity endorsed headphones tend to be epic fails but I've never heard of headphones being endorsed by a metal band. What do you guys think?
