Any futuristic concept might sound ridiculous when hearing it for the first time, as it happens with the Dyson air purifying headphones, which appear ahead of the times, hence crazy. However, a closer look would reveal that the idea is sensible enough, or why would the maker dare announce that Dyson launches air-purifying Bluetooth headphones? Indeed the headphones might look bizarre at a glance as the headphone comes with a snorkel-like mouthpiece. When you wear the device, the mouthpiece keeps your nose and mouth securely covered as you walk around, music pouring into your ears and purified air entering your body. Dyson headphones’ air purifying system is a powerful air purifier attached to Active Noise cancellation units to create a composite unit. The reputed appliance maker is now making a foray into music devices like headphones.
Dyson air purifying headphones- Design
Zone 3 Air Purifying Headphones is the name of Dyson’s audio product integrated with an air purification system. The headphones have a hefty design, contrary to the lightweight design of headphones we see around. The appearance is deceptive because the device feels light on the head. To distribute the weight evenly across the head. The headphones would be a reminder that you are wearing headgear.
Buying such a big device should be costly, and the Dyson air purifying headphones price might make your eyes watery as you need to shell out $949, the list price.
The air filtration system
The air filtration system has three breathing modes, and you can adjust the air volume by controlling the pump to suit your needs according to the environment. In the lowest mode, you hardly feel the air coming, while the mid-setting ensures the flow of air to your face that feels like a gentle breeze. At the high setting, the airflow is quite strong and might sometimes be a distraction. However, regardless of the setting, the flow has softness as the air gently caresses your face. Unlike wearing a mask, you will never feel suppressed as the breathing apparatus does not touch your face. Besides the manual setting, there’s an auto-setting feature, too. The Dyson Zone app has all the control features, or you can use the onboard controls.
The Audio Experience
The Dyson air purifying headphones’ cost might pinch your pocket because of the audio quality, which is, at best. Paying a bomb for headphones that support Bluetooth 5.0, a USB-C port for charging, and a 3.5 mm audio jack with a declared battery life of 50 hours for audio might hurt you unless you have a fascination for the air purifying features. When using all the audio and air purification features, the battery should last up to 4 hours only.
Remember, Dyson air purifying headphones are twice as expensive as the Air Pods.
