“The Dyson Zone purifies the air you breathe on the go. And unlike face masks, it delivers a plume of cool air without touching your face, using high-performance filters and two miniaturized air pumps,” explains Jake Dyson, Chief Engineer at Dyson “After six years in development, we’re thrilled to deliver clean air and clean sound, anywhere.”
Wondering what the difference in audio quality is between the Dyson Zone and a pair of Apple AirPods Max? Especially since the Zone has two motors in each of its ear cups to power their filtration? Well, anyone expecting their Metallica megamix to be drowned out by an incessant buzz will be in for a pleasant surprise. The active noise cancellation in these headphones is completely legit, even when these drivers are amplified to the max.
While these headphones aren’t exactly small, they’re nowhere near as heavy as you’d expect when trying them out. The weight is evenly distributed over your head and the foam padding ensures a comfortable fit. This visor is particularly thin and nimble – you can even pull it down from your face when you want to converse with someone. As much as wearing the Zone without succumbing to self-awareness sounds like a big ask, there’s a lot to admire in the health-related intentions and innovation behind them.
The Dyson Zone air-purifying headphones will be available to buy from fall 2022. No pricing information is yet available, but you can expect them to be pricey when they hit the shelves. stores and online.
