Motorheadphones are a little less than Ace Video Transcript
Hi. This is Ty Pendlebury with the look at the Motorheadphones MÃ¶torizers. When it comes to buying celebrity headphones, you have two choices. Gaudy or goddamn, that's horrible. But what if you want something a little more discreet? Something that says skanky dive bar, for example. Behold the Motorheadphones MÃ¶torizers. This is the British metal band's top-of-the-line headphone. And they promised to transform you from Lemming to lead singer Lemmy, but hopefully without the intent in hearing loss. These are full detail headphones with a bit of swivel in the e-cups, but they don't fall down flat. They come with two sets of cords, a short one with a three-button mic, and a longer one for use at home. Build quality is a little ragged. Just like Lemmy himself, I guess. And the earpads attract a lot of gumpf. Lint is not very rock and roll. Sound quality is fairly balanced with more bass than the band itself, though it is articulate-- this time, unlike Lemmy. And they have nicely judged treble response. The mid-range is open, sounding in detail, but there is a presence boost that's designed to make vocal sound exciting. But it can sound a little too screechy with the wrong material. At $130, the MÃ¶torizer's may enable certainly impress metal fans. But I'd recommend spending a little more on a more balanced and better built audio [unk] technique at N50s. This has been Ty Pendlebury for CNET.com.

Motorheadphones 33009 Motorizer Review
The good: The Motorheadphones Motorizers feature distinctive Motorhead branding and a very rock-friendly sound; lack of a bass bump also makes them suited to most styles of music; come with detachable cables.
The bad: Build quality is a little cheap-feeling; the presence boost can make the headphones a little tiring to listen to after a while; they don't fold flat and so are less portable than other DJ headphones; they're plasticky and the earcups attract lint. Would you buy a pair of headphones named after a group of hearing-impaired elderly men?
The bottom line: The Motorheadphones Motorizers look and sound very rock-and-roll, but need a little more attention to the build quality.
