Beats has collaborated with fashion brand Stüssy on a limited-edition Beats Pill+ speaker featuring a skull-and-bones design and the Stüssy logo. An engraved message on the top of the speaker says "the only good system is a sound system."

The limited-edition model appears to have the same overall design as the original Beats Pill+ released in 2015, based on images shared on Stüssy's website.

Absurd criticism.

Terrible things happen all the time. But we’re not supposed to release a product because Ukraine was invaded?

If we didn’t do ANYTHING any time some terrible thing happened….we wouldn’t do anything. What is your criteria for allowing products to be released? What a weak attempt at looking virtuous.

Oh, a representation of mangled skeletal systems. I always wonder if similar designs based on the muscular, digestive, or circulatory systems would sell.

There's a war raging in Europe, hundreds of civilians are dead, and six days in Apple releases a product featuring a death motif.
Thousands of people have been killed in ongoing wars in Africa. But I guess it was okay for Apple to release new MacBook Pros.

Love the design. I've always liked the whole skull and crossbones look.

Don't see the issue here (regarding the aesthetics of the device), given its subjectivity.
