Ashdown Engineering builds bass guitar amps for some of the biggest rock bands in the world, including U2 and the Foo Fighters. No surprise, then, that the firm’s first pair of headphones comes with a dash of rock ’n’ roll.

The Meters Music OV-1’s have a volume meter from a professional mixing desk on each ear cup. Crank up the tunes and the needles will bounce in time to the music.
