The love affair between Skullcandy and Doritos continues. After launching a limited edition set of Doritos-themed Dime wireless earbuds to celebrate 4/20 day in 2022, the duo is back for another collab. This time, Skullcandy has given its Dime 2 wireless earbuds and SLYR gaming headset the nacho cheese-inspired colors, but with a twist: special stripes that glow when exposed to a black light have been added to the paint job.
The two headphones can be purchased immediately, but won’t ship until mid-February. The psychedelic sets are priced at $70 for the SLYR multi-platform wired headset and $35 for the Dime 2 wireless earbuds.
Apparently, the new glowing paint picks up on a TikTok trend that has been thriving — folks creating videos with lots of blacklight effects. But other than the UV-reactive paint, these products are identical to their non-Doritos-themed versions.
The SLYR is a recent addition to the Skullcandy lineup and is aimed at budget- (and style-)conscious gamers. The company says it delivers rich, detailed audio, crystal-clear communication, all-day comfort, and additional features designed to maximize the gaming experience. It uses 50mm drivers and the detachable boom mic has a status LED to let you know when you’re on mute. Because it uses a simple analog cable, it will work with virtually all gaming platforms including consoles and PCs.
