Dyson Unveil New Air Purifying Mouth Vacuum Headphones
31 Mar 2022
Silly season is approaching but Dyson insist their headphones that come with a built in air vacuum for your mouth are nothing of the sort.
Known for its vacuum cleaners, fans and hairdryers Dyson have decided to enter the wearable tech market in a striking way.
Delivering purified air to the mouth and nose the “Dyson Zone” also simultaneously tackles noise pollution through its active noise cancelling technology.
Aimed at city dwellers the Dyson Zone is “capable of filtering city fumes and pollutants” as the company put it.
“Air pollution is a global problem – it affects us everywhere we go,” said Chief engineer Jake Dyson.
“In our homes, at school, at work and as we travel, whether on foot, on a bike or by public or private transport. The Dyson Zone purifies the air you breathe on the move. And unlike face masks, it delivers a plume of fresh air without touching your face, using high-performance filters and two miniaturised air pumps.”
The loud design sees a removable plastic visor wrap around the front of the face filtering out allergens, gases and dust.
Air passes through double-layered filters made with a potassium-enriched carbon layer, which traps city gas pollutants.
Six years in the making the Dyson Zone seems to have come just on time with a host of companies getting in on the face covering act in response to the coronavirus pandemic.
