Beastie Boys Sonos Play:5 special edition speaker is ready to mmm... drop!

Beastie Boys Sonos Play:5 special edition

You gotta fight for your right to party, and Sonos is here to help. It's teaming up with legendary rappers the Beastie Boys to release a limited edition of its Play:5 speaker, with all proceeds of the sales going to charity.

The Beastie Boys Play:5 features a cool design by San Francisco artist Barry McGee printed across its grille – but that's about it in terms of differences from the core Play:5 speaker. It's more a chance to shout about your love of the Brooklyn trio than anything else.

However, pick up the $499 speaker, and you'll also be doing your part to support Peace Sisters, a charity that supports underprivileged women in Africa, and Little Kids Rock, the charity that gives greater access to music lessons to children across the United States.

The Sonos Play:5 is a powerful-sounding connected speaker, bringing multi-room audio to your home from practically every conceivable digital source. The Beastie Boys edition will act just like a regular Play:5, and will seamlessly slip into your multi-room set up.

While the Beastie Boys speaker will only be available at physical retail in Sonos's NYC brick-and-mortar store, you'll still be able to pick it up globally online through Act fast – it's being made available in limited amounts, so this will get snapped up quickly.
