The Dyson company, known worldwide for its wide range of technological products focused on cleaning, drying and purifying the air, has taken a new step by entering the manufacture of a personal product that enters the sound domain.
In fact, the solution is all the more particular as even the brands specialized in the manufacture of sound products have not considered this new product concept.
Part air purifier and part headphones, the new Dyson Zone are high-fidelity, noise-canceling headband headphones that can be fitted with an air purifier when you’re strolling around town to protect you from the environmental pollution.
When do Dyson Zones go on sale?
The brand has just introduced the new Dyson Zone, to which it has tried to apply its more than 30 years of experience in air purification technologies. The system achieves this by providing the user with a cloud of clean air without coming into contact with the face.
The British firm wouldn’t set a fixed launch date, but said the final product will go on sale in the fall of this year, which leads us to believe that the product is still in the testing phase.
As the final launch approaches, we will have more detailed information, according to Dyson. This way, the Dyson area will likely see the light at some point in the year between the months of September and November 2022.
Dyson Zone air-purifying headphones will be available to try in stores Dyson demo shop and can also be purchased from the official website of Dyson.
How much will the Dyson Zone cost?
This is another fact that Dyson didn’t want to reveal, but based on the technology used for air purification, as well as the sound quality that the noise canceling product claims to deliver, we believe that The Dyson Zone could be positioned above the 500 $.
You can consult our ranking of best headphones of the year to get the best sound quality.
A standard Dyson air purifier can cost upwards of £299, without delivering a premium audio experience. If we combine the price of mid-range headphones and Dyson’s basic air purifier, we could be looking at a similar price.
What we are clear on is that given the quality of the brand’s products, it is very likely that the company is committed to offering a quality and top-of-the-range product in its category, as we have already seen with the moulder. Dyson Air Wrap from 499$.
How do Dyson Zones work?
As we anticipated, these are the first headphones that combine audio and air purification, with the aim of combating air and noise pollution for those on the move and commuting in big cities.
Dyson tried to take a science-based approach instead of following the rules of other brands. As this is a new product with no reference on the market, the capacity for innovation has been pushed to the limit.
Thus, the Dyson Zone consist of headphones presented in the form of a headband with advanced noise cancellation. The company’s engineers have developed a high-performance neodymium electro-acoustic system in each earphone.
The device’s passive attenuation and ANC system, along with a unique array of microphones, have successfully reduced ambient noise and engine sounds to provide optimal noise cancellation wherever you are.
According to prior information, the purification system is removable, so it is possible to comfortably use the headphones indoors without the need to attach the air purification system.
According to initial specifications, each canister attached to the purifier offers an air filtration system that sucks up to 2.5 liters of polluted air per second and “cleans” it using electrostatic means that extract particles down to 0.1 micron of air.
It also protects against gases, such as nitrogen dioxide, sulfur dioxide and ground-level ozone, which are generally not filtered out by other more basic technologies. This clean air is sent directly to your nose and mouth through a visor that magnetically attaches to the headphones.
Dyson eliminated the need for the device to come into contact with the nose or mouth from the outset. It has four settings – low, medium, high and automatic – the latter automatically adjusting suction power and other settings.
Air quality information can be viewed via the My Dyson app, as is already the case for many of its indoor purifierswhere you can also control another series of functions and sound equalization.
The visor is not permanently attached to the helmet. Instead, it’s held in place by magnets, and there’s an additional “chat mode” that lets you lower the visor to chat with people around you.
Inside the helmet there are a total of 11 microphones which monitor outside noise and engine noise to dampen any noise during use.
The autonomy section is a whole disability since the data initially proposed indicate that it will not exceed between 1h30 and 4h30 of use depending on the level of air purification chosen.
Things get better if you want to use them as a standard pair of headphones, getting over 40 hours on a single charge. The company also claims that with fast charging it is possible to reach 60% capacity in just 20 minutes.
