Sonos is releasing a special Beastie Boys version of its Play:5 speaker, designed by San Francisco artist Barry McGee, the company announced today. McGee and Sonos worked with Adam “Ad-Rock” Horovitz and Michael “Mike D” Diamond of the Beastie Boys on the design of the speaker, and all proceeds from its sale will go to charities, including the Adam Yauch Foundation.

The red-and-white speaker is pretty distinctive, with Beastie Boys written out on the grille in a contemporary typeface. Sonos has occasionally done limited edition versions of its Play:1 speaker, but it’s rarer to see a limited version of its Play:5 speaker hit the shelves.

You can pick up the Sonos Play:5 Beastie Boys Edition in December for $499 — the standard price for the speaker — on Sonos.com, Sonos’ retail store in New York City, and select retailers worldwide.
