As the iconic Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (TMNT) franchise prepares to celebrate its 40th anniversary, Skullcandy, the personal audio brand known for its innovative audio products, is joining in the festivities with a limited-edition collaboration. This exciting partnership brings forth two unique products inspired by the beloved mutant crime-fighting turtles, namely the Skullcandy x TMNT Push Active True Wireless Earbuds and the Skullcandy x TMNT PLYR Multi-Platform Wireless Gaming Headset.
Drawing inspiration from the toxic green ooze that transformed the turtles into the heroes we all know and love, both sets of headphones come with distinctive design elements that pay homage to these iconic characters. They're doused in TCRI Mutagen Ooze, boast transparent and glow-in-the-dark features, and allow for customization, letting fans represent their favorite turtle – whether it's Raphael's fiery red, Donatello's brainy purple, Michelangelo's wild orange, or Leonardo's leadership in blue.
"With nods to skate culture, gaming and killer soundtracks, the TMNT franchise shares a lot of core elements with the Skullcandy brand," said Justin Regan, VP of Marketing at Skullcandy. "We wanted to pay tribute to the fandom by redesigning our Push Active earbuds and PLYR headset to ooze nostalgia for the beloved characters. With this exclusive drop, we hope fans new and old will cue the theme song, bring out the pizza, and celebrate the fearless foursome."
