AC/DC are the latest rockers to release their own brand of headphones.
The band gave their blessing to German company On.Earz, who are also releasing official pairs of Elvis Presley and James Dean headphones under their 'Legends Series' brand.
Each pair will be available for $99 when they launch in the coming months.
Motorhead worked with the company Sandberg And Brand to release a line of nine different headphones with smartphone integration last week, fittingly titled 'Motorheadphones'. Lemmyappeared at a tech convention to promote them, and said they had been designed to enhance rock music.
"We told them what to do very specifically," said Lemmy at the time. "And we threatened them with terrible violence if they didn't get it right, so I'm sure they got it right."
The trend of artists releasing headphones was started by Dr. Dre who fronts the 'Beats by Dre' headphone company, which is preparing to branch into the music streaming market this year.
