New Skullcandy headphones get a dose of Toxic-ooze with Limited-edition Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle colours

    Skullcandy recently announced a collaboration with the iconic Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise.

    The Skullcandy x TMNT Push Active True Wireless Earbuds and Skullcandy x TMNT PLYR Multi-Platform Wireless Gaming Headset celebrate the fan-favourite franchise ahead of its 40th anniversary.

    Inspired by the toxic green ooze that transformed the turtles into crime-fighting heroes, the collection features state-of-the-art audio technology and is dripping with nods to the beloved characters. The limited-edition collab is available now at

    “With nods to skate culture, gaming and killer soundtracks, the TMNT franchise shares a lot of core elements with the Skullcandy brand.

    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.”

    Justin Regan, VP of Marketing at Skullcandy.

    The exclusive design features transparent and glow-in-the-dark elements. TCRI Mutagen Ooze is poured all over Push Active while PLYR features turtle-shell earcups, a manhole cover inside the ear cushion, a radioactive headband, and pepperoni pizza boom mic.

    With custom, interchangeable ear gel and suspension headband colorways, fans can rep their favourite reptile–red for Raph’s direct attack, purple for Don’s calculated strategy, orange for Mikey’s controlled chaos or blue if you’re ready to lead the Turtles like Leo.

    For those young readers, you may have seen TMNT cartoons, but Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is a beloved entertainment franchise that is now over 35 years old.

    The turtles, Leonardo, Raphael, Donatello, and Michelangelo, have become iconic characters, and their stories of heroism, friendship, and perseverance have resonated with fans worldwide.

    The franchise has been adapted into countless forms of media, including comics, television shows, movies, and video games. I first played TNMT on the NES in my early years and something I look back on fondly.
