Dyson's Zone headphones that come with a built-in air purifier mask have gone on sale.
The brand first announced the launch of their new Bluetooth headphones — their first wearable — in March last year. Available now, the noise-cancelling, over-ear headphones are inspired by the shape and design of a horse’s saddle and promise to remove 99% of pollutants and allergens as small as 0.1 microns, including dust and pollen. They last up to 50 hours as standard headphones or up to four hours with the air purification turned on.
The Zone are fitted with sensors that pick up how fast the wearer is moving and automatically adjusts the airflow to compensate, using the MyDyson app, which also alerts you when to replace the filters. You can choose your preferred audio equalisation mode: Dyson EQ (enhanced), Bass Boost (bassy) and Neutral (flatter response curve).
The headphones were created with "urban pollution" in mind, according to chief engineer Jake Dyson. "The Dyson Zone™ provides advanced active noise cancellation combined with purified air, when you need it, alongside intelligent sensing and monitoring of your own environment," he said.
"It also allows Dyson to monitor in real-time, both indoor and outdoor air pollution levels. This new technology marks the beginning of an exciting period for Dyson, where we are providing people with a new generation of intelligent, self-improving and connected machines."
The Dyson Zone in Ultra Blue is priced at £749.99, while the Dyson Zone Absolute+ bundle in Prussian Blue is priced at £819.99. Find out more here and buy a pair from the Dyson site here.
