The Dyson Zone air purifying headphones launch at $949
Revealed back in March, the highly anticipated Dyson Zone air purifying headphones are now available for pre-order. The household appliance company is undoubtedly making a statement as the company initiates their first push into wearable technology with a product that doubles as both a high-fidelity earphone and an air purifier.
The electrostatic filter of the Dyson Zone air purifying headphones is designed to filter out pollutants such as ozone and nitrogen dioxide up to 99 percent of the time and up to a size of 0.1 microns as the company states. In conjunction with the ear cups, it filters the air as it’s drawn in by them.
A button on the left ear cup lets the user adjust the pace. Although the product alone is not intended to prevent exposure to the virus that shall not be named, the filter can be used for up to 12 months and a mask can be worn in conjunction with it.
As for the audio quality, the headphones can handle up to 38 decibels of noise cancellation and features 40mm neodymium drivers. Users are able to select from three audio equalization modes (Dyson EQ, Bass Boost, and Neutral) through the MyDyson app. The headphones also feature Bluetooth 3.0 support as well as SBC, AAC, and LHDC audio codecs.
In terms of battery life, the built-in 2,600mAh battery offers 50 hours of listening time. The battery can power the air purification visor for up to four hours on the “Low” setting, but only 2.5 and 1.5 hours on the “Mid” and “High” settings, respectively. Charging time will require three hours through USB-C.
The Dyson Zone air purifying headphones will be priced at $949 and offered in “Ultra Blue/Prussian Blue” and “Prussian Blue/Bright Copper” colorways, with a release date slated for May 17.
