With hip-hop fans flocking to buy Beats by Dr. Dre headphones, it was only a matter of time before hard-rocking audio engineers cranked out designs fine-tuned for blasting loud guitars instead of thumping beats. Behold three pairs of headphones built to rock your world.

Motörhead
“Everything louder than everyone else” is Motörhead’s slogan, and these Motörizers ($129, www.motorheadphones.com) prove it.

Marshall Amps
Where would rock be without Marshall amps? The company packs its expertise into the Marshall Monitors ($200, www.marshallheadphones.com), which feature vintage amp styling.

AC/DC
These AC/DC headphones ($99, www.onearz.com) include the booming drivers you’d expect from a band with the word rock in more than a dozen song titles.
