Dyson, the tech appliance company behind the TikTok famous Airwrap and everyone’s favourite vacuum cleaners, is entering the headphone and wearable tech market with the launch of its new air-purifying headphones—and it’s safe to say that our interest has been piqued.
The Dyson Zone, as it is officially called, was launched on March 30 and quickly generated a lot of buzz online. So how does it work, you may ask? Users can enjoy stellar audio quality while also being able to breathe in fresh air through a mouthpiece that will suck in air from around your ears, filter it and release it near your mouth and nose in a two-stage purification process.
While it certainly looks a tad odd when worn, the air filtration system does not come into contact with the user's face at all. Rather it comfortably sits inches from your mouth and nose so you can breathe naturally with no stuffiness. Safe to say, this will not protect you from Covid-19 (which is not the intent of the product).
