Revolution in the high tech planet! The Dyson brand announces the launch of an air purifying headset. The first mobile air purifier. Don’t panic, we’ll explain everything to you!
Do you take the metro, bus or train morning and evening? Do you go to work by bike or are you more of a walker? Do you spend your life in a windowless gym or, quite simply, do you work in an open space and fear being contaminated by Covid-19? Well for all these reasons (and many more), this brand new device is made for you!
The Dyson Zone promises to be a real revolution. This funny helmet with futuristic lines is indeed the first mobile air purifier on the market. Unveiled today by Jake Dyson, Chief Dyson Engineer, these are high-definition, active noise-canceling over-ear headphones that simultaneously deliver immersive sound to the ears and purified airflow to the nose and throat. stuffy.
Indeed, as the world’s urban population continues to grow, the World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that 9 out of 10 people worldwide breathe air that exceeds WHO recommended pollutant limits. And while NO2 pollution in cities has declined during the Covid-192 pandemic, levels have quickly returned to normal or even exceeded pre-pandemic levels in many cities around the world. It is also estimated that more than 100 million people – around 20% of the European population – are exposed to long-term noise above WHO recommendations. Jake Dyson said: « The Dyson Zone™ air-purifying headphones purify the air you breathe on the go. Unlike protective masks, it delivers a flow of cool air without touching your face, thanks to high-performance filters and two miniaturized air pumps. After six years of development, we are delighted to be able to offer you pure air and pure sound, wherever you are.« .
How it works ?
The compressors located in each earpiece draw air through the dual-layer filters and project two streams of purified air towards the nose and mouth of its user, concentrated by a contactless visor. The edges of the visor help keep the flow of purified air close to the nose and mouth and to avoid dilution with external air currents as much as possible. The Dyson Zone™ headphones deliver rich, immersive sound and a reduction in unwanted city noise thanks to an advanced Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) system, low distortion and neutral frequency response, to faithfully reproduce music or the soundtrack. After 6 years of research and no less than 500 prototypes, the engineers (located between the United Kingdom, Singapore, Malaysia and China) have succeeded in making a helmet suitable for all head shapes, which involved extensive research into visor geometry and materials, headband clamping force and much more.
Still a little patience…
The Dyson Zone™ air-purifying headphones will be available online and in-store at Dyson Demo Stores and Dyson.com from 2023. announced in the coming months and we will not fail to keep you informed. So you can already put it on your wishlist for Christmas, Valentine’s Day or Mother’s and Father’s Day!
