The Dyson Zone, a pair of noise-canceling Bluetooth headphones with air purification technology built-in, is the most Dyson way imaginable for Dyson to get into headphones: through a bizarre-looking magnetic face visor. It’s both the weirdest and most ambitious product Dyson has ever produced.
Just an introductory glimpse of the Zone headphones before a fall release date. Dyson isn’t providing specific information like price or specs (including how heavy or long the battery will last).
Dyson Zone: What is the purpose of the Dyson headphones?
The goal of the Zone is to make city life more pleasant by reducing both air and noise pollution. Dyson Zone’s working process took 6 years.
Like Dyson’s existing air purification technology, the Zone’s ventilation system is a modified version of the standard. Instead of reinventing the wheel, it shrinks Dyson’s already existing air filtering technology into a distinctive form factor. The (slightly strange-looking) “visor” on top of the user’s head draws air through each earpiece using two tiny compressors. The clean air is then routed through the “visor,” which contains only particles and pollutants for the user to breathe in.)
The visor, contrary to appearances, does not touch your face like a mask would. Rather than resting on your face, it sits in front of it, creating a space where a bubble of clean air may collect and be breathed in. (The firm also displayed a separate attachment that could be attached in some instances when you need an actual full-contact face mask.),
Despite Dyson’s efforts, the zone headphones are big and heavy. No information about the price yet.
