Beats by Dre and Futura Laboratories, a design studio and brand platform formed by pioneering graffiti artist FUTURA, have joined forces to create a special-edition pair of Beats Studio Buds.

Doused in the inventive artist’s signature “atom” motif, the Beats Studio Buds supply high-quality audio and offer Class 1 Bluetooth Active Noise Cancellation. Additionally, the earbuds feature a transparency mode and one-touch pairing for Apple and Android devices with up to eight hours of listening time. Notably, the device marks the second collaboration between Beats and FUTURA, following their previous Solo HD delivery in 2013.

In tandem with the collaborative earbuds’ debut, Futura curated an old-school playlist full of songs that resonate with his work and reflect his New York City background. The retro tracklist, titled “Futura Laboratories,” is available to stream on Apple Music.

“Music has always been a necessity in my creative space,” said Futura in a statement, “but music on my Beats Studio Buds take me to an entirely isolated inner space.”

The special-edition Beats Studio Buds will be available to purchase for $149.99 USD beginning Saturday, July 30, at 7 a.m. PT on Futura Laboratories’ webstore, END Clothing and Beats’ WeChat store. Take a look at the design in the gallery above.

Elsewhere, Instagram’s new “Boost” feature will allow businesses to turn Reels into ads.
