AMBUSH’s Yoon Creates Glow-in-the-Dark Version of Powerbeats
A design inspired by the neon-lit streets of Tokyo.
Continuing her roster of collaborators including Nike, the NBA, Converse and BVLGARI, AMBUSH‘s Yoon has now teamed up with Beats for a set of glow-in-the-dark headphones. The special-edition, high-performance Powerbeats are inspired by the neon-lit streets of Shibuya, where the designer resides.
Showcased through a campaign featuring musician Burna Boy, the earphones mark Beats’ first-ever phosphorescent product. Under light, the design comes in a mint green shade and is contrasted with a bold red “b” logo alongside AMBUSH’s branding. A rounded cable connects the two earbuds together, allowing the gadget to be worn around the neck. Boasting 15 hours of battery life, the Powerbeats are sweat and water-resistant. The Apple-compatible piece is powered by the tech giant’s H1 chip, which allows Siri activation and speedier pairing between iCloud devices.
“I thought it would be really cool to design a product that could capture [Shibuya's] energy when you’re outside late at night listening to music. This collaboration was designed for everyone who is confident, having fun, being creative and trying new things — those kids always seem to glow the brightest,” Yoon comments in a press release.
Take a closer look at the collaborative headphones below. AMBUSH’s Powerbeats, priced at £169.95 GBP (approximately $225 USD), will be dropping on November 18 via Apple’s online store.
