Dyson's first wearable air-purifying Bluetooth ANC headphones The company's first wearable provides a personal pocket of filtered air and eliminates annoying sounds. Dyson has announced its first wearable device: a pair of Bluetooth noise-canceling headphones that couples the company's air purification experience with a city dweller's desire to avoid polluted air. The Dyson Zone is unlike anything the company has ever produced. It's a pair of enormous, soft headphones that have a plastic mask-like device that connects from ear to ear across the user's mouth, giving it a sci-fi movie feel.

Chief engineer Jake Dyson said: “Air pollution is a global problem – it affects us everywhere we go. In our homes, at school, at work and as we travel, whether on foot, on a bike, or by public or private transport. 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.” Each ear cup has a motor, compressor fan, and air purifying dual-layer filter. The air is drawn through the filters, which remove 99% of particles as tiny as 0.1 microns, including pollen, germs, dust, and gas pollutants like sulfur or nitrogen dioxide. The clean air is then pushed along the inside of a visor, which sits just in front of the mouth and nose without making contact with the skin, creating a pocket of fresh air to breathe. The headphones have sensors that measure how fast the user is moving, automatically changing the airflow between three intensity settings to ensure they provide up to 5 liters of clean air per second, which is the breathing rate for jogging. In the left ear cup, an air quality sensor measures real-time pollution levels and sends the data to an app on your phone. This app alerts you when to replace the filters, which should last around 12 months in Europe or less in more polluted areas. The visor is held in place by magnets on the headphones, which may be unclipped or folded down to expose the fans and allow them to talk to others. Dyson also created an FFP2 filter, which sits between the visor and face, as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic's masking demands. Active noise cancellation, similar to that employed by Bose and Sony headphones popular with commuters, uses microphones to detect the outside world's sound and the spinning compressors on either side of the user's head to remove it through anti-soundwaves played into the ear cups. The visor may be detached for usage without purification. Its battery lasts up to 4.5 hours at the Zone's lowest filtration rate or 90 minutes at maximum, and it is only intended for brief periods of time. They last up to 40 hours when used as headphones, charge via USB-C in 20 minutes for a fast charge to 60%, and may be used while charging is necessary. The Dyson Zone is set to go on sale in the fall for an as-yet-unspecified premium price that is expected to be between £500 and £1,000.
