Yup, I just stumbled across this bit of news and thought I’d share it: legendary hard rock outfit Motorhead recently launched their own line of earphones and headphones – or “headphönes” as they call them, actually bringing to mind Peter Sellers‘ classic Inspector Clouseau character from the Pink Panther films. Remember that scene where he walks from room to room with a huge, lit cartoonish bomb asking “A bömb? Did anyöne örder a bömb?” Anyway, in their press release the bands states:

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.

So far there’s three different sets of headphones (Bomber, Iron Fist and Motörizer) and six sets of earphones (three variations each of Overkill and Trigger), with prices ranging from 39 to 129 Euros (approx. $49 – 165). Read more about it on the official website here, and on Facebook as well. Check it out here.
