From TFA: The headphones were specifically designed to bring out midrange sounds unlike other high-end headphones like Beats, which place an emphasis on bass. Brand manager Andres Nicklassen – who initially approached Motorhead about the headphones with CEO Ulf Sandberg – said that too much bass takes the soul out of rock. Or, as Lemmy put it, "It's like you're listening through a towel."

There's a video out there of him at CES in support of these. He just seems lost and oblivious. The interviewer tries to ask him about the headphones and Lemmy basically tells him to Fuck off. Classic Lemmy.
