Motörheadphönes Now In Stock!

The story

Their story is the stuff of legends. Road warriors. Volume-busters. Free-spirited-do-what-we-want-in-the-name-of-REAL-rock-and-roll mofos who genuinely do not give a good Goddamn about ANYTHING other than being Motörhead.

Motörhead is a lifestyle

And after three-plus decades bringing real rock'n'roll to countries spanning the whole world, Lemmy, Mikkey and Phil decided it was time to make sure that people get real rock'n'roll in their ears 24-7...thus behold...

Motörheadphönes

No weak-kneed, lily-livered, tin-pot and skinny sounding little pieces of garbage, no, that ain’t Motörhead’s style. These are headphönes designed to deliver everything louder than everything else BUT with the sort of range, clarity and TRUE rock reproduction you’d expect from a band of road warriors who have been at the top of the tree year after year.

Like anything which carries the Motörhead name, the phönes went through rigorous testing and were subjected to sharp criticisms in development. Lemmy doesn't fuck around and neither he, Mikkey nor Phil would tolerate sub-standard products. Test-sets flew around the world, often being thrown right back as the band refused to settle for something which was "OK" or something which was "decent"..these had to be the real thing.

As the road-warriors themselves say, "If it's too loud, you're too old."

The brand

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.
