AdvertisementDyson has introduced a bizarre new product and it’s not a vacuum cleaner or a hair dryer, it is a noise-cancelling headphone that also works as an air purifier for your mouth and nose.
The new headphones from the company are a scary reminder of the increasingly polluted world that we live in. However, considering the timing of the announcement, we wouldn’t be surprised if this ends up as an April fool’s prank.
A recent report revealed that Delhi and Mumbai are among the top 10 polluted cities in the world. As per IQAir, there are 14 Indian cities among the list of top 20 most polluted cities in the world.
Dyson Zone features and specifications
With the Dyson Zone, the company has made its debut in the audio segment and the wearables segment. The headphones will protect you against both air and noise pollution when you step out of your home.
The Dyson Zone has repeatedly been developed after 6 years of research and over 500 prototypes. It offers three noise cancellation modes – isolation, conversation and transparency. While isolation offers the highest level of noise cancellation, the transparency mode allows you to stay aware of your surroundings.
The device features a 2-stage filtration process and is capable of filtering city fumes and pollutants. The visor is equipped with a potassium-enriched carbon filter which uses an electrostatic filtration process to purify the air.
“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,”
