Looking for an efficient way to reduce noise and air pollution at a time? While it seems that Dyson thinks it has found the solution to noise-canceling headphones combined with air purifiers in its first-ever wearable device.
Dyson’s new Zone headphones are a strange-looking pair. It’s particularly bizarre as headphones go. Through the integration of these two technologies, it is intended to enhance city life.
What makes the air purifier distinctive is that it’s not designed to touch your face. Since with this you also get a detachable visor that really looks weird on the bottom half of your face.
It did not act as a mask during the pandemic, because Dyson Zone was already in development beforehand. As a means of helping people breathe less-polluted air wherever they are, it is not intended to keep out COVID-19 germs.
From Dyson’s home products, this new portable device features filtration from the company’s home products. As the air enters from the earpieces of your headphones, it is filtered, then pumped up to your mouth and nose by a filtering system.
The technology also adjusts the airflow according to how fast you’re moving, as its primary goal is to provide all its users with 5 liters of clean and fresh air per second.
Currently, Dyson is working on an attachment for the visor that will make it suitable for an FFP2 filter, if you need a mask. We have yet to learn about the specifics of the headphones’ nose-cancellation technology.
At its lowest purification settings, the battery lasts about four and a half hours, while at its highest level it lasts about 90 minutes. While from a single charge, these headphones should last roughly 40 hours if you just use them as headphones.
In 20 minutes, Dyson says they’ll charge to 60%. They’re charged via USB-C. Two days before April Fools’ Day, Dyson chose a strange day to release these headphones.
Moreover, a company spokesperson has confirmed that this product is real on Twitter. However, we will learn more about those things from Dyson in the near future.
