A revolutionary headphones pair of headphones with the ability to produce high-quality sound, noise-cancelling features, and an integrated air purifier was recently displayed by Dyson. While noise cancellation is a standard feature in high-end headphones, the air-purifying feature is novel.
It’s wonderful to see businesses making investments in innovations that support healthy lifestyles, particularly in the modern world when air pollution is a serious issue in many urban areas. People who live in heavily polluted locations or who have respiratory problems can benefit from the capacity to filter out pollutants and odors.
The auto-activity mode is also a fascinating feature, as it shows how the headphones can adapt to the user’s needs and environment. It’s impressive to see how the accelerometer measures movement speed and breathing rate to adjust the amount of airflow.
However, given that there are many other high-quality noise-cancelling headphones available on the market for a much lower price, the starting price of $900+ may be prohibitive for many potential purchasers. However, it’s encouraging to see how technology is evolving to provide beneficial benefits for our health and wellbeing in addition to entertainment.
The Dyson Zone headphones feature eight microphones that work to cancel out background noise, providing up to 38 decibels of sound reduction. The headphones also offer low sound distortion and a full audio spectrum, thanks to a custom-built 40 mm, 16-ohm neodymium speaker driver that delivers clarity for bass, mids, and highs.
The headphones can last up to 50 hours on a single charge when used purely for audio and noise cancellation. However, when the air-purifying features are activated, the battery life decreases to just four hours. The headphones do have auto-on-off sensors that help to save unusable battery life.
The Zone is a pair of noise-cancelling headphones that also come with electrostatic carbon filters to improve air quality. There will be two color options for the headphones, and the Dyson-only model will include extra filters, an in-flight adapter, and a soft pouch. The headphones’ 50-hour battery life makes them perfect for city dwellers who wish to drown out background noise and possibly dangerous airborne contaminants. The headphones’ visor may have a Darth Vader look, but considering the additional health advantages and long battery life, it seems like a modest price to pay.
