THE DYSON ZONE AIR PURIFYING HI-FI NOISE CANCELLING HEADPHONES LAUNCH AT $949
Dyson makes pretty cool products. Sure, their flagship invention really, really sucked. But it was a vacuum, after all. It did its job, and the newer ones suck even more. Even the portable ones. You’ve probably also seen their bladeless fans and heaters, which are popular in doctors’ offices, too. But now, Dyson is about to enter the market with its own headphones, the Dyson Zone. Yet they’re not just headphones as you can see from the picture above. They’re also portable air purifying headphones that will keep your lungs germ and allergen free while you listen to your favorite music or podcast. But ouch! They’re gonna cost $949?
DYSON ZONE WILL GIVE YOU CLEAN AIR AND GREAT SOUND, BUT GOOD PROTECTION FROM COVID?
Sure, most Dyson products come with a price tag that makes me say ouch so loud that I never consider buying them. Unfortunately, I’m saying ouch even louder for the Dyson Zone headphones. Sure, that means I’d love to have a pair. But really more out of novel curiosity. I can’t imagine a scenario where I’d need hi-fi sound while wearing a mask for any amount of time to need them. But then again, I’m not in college anymore! But these will do a great job, according to the specs. Yes Dyson has made it clear they don’t create a perfect seal and won’t be a solution to minimize exposure to Covid-19.
IF YOU MASS COMMUTE, THE DYSON ZONE SEEMS TO BE A PERFECT FIT TWICE A DAY
But people are going to buy these, and in droves I expect. Most masks don’t have a great seal on your face to protect from Covid, let’s just be honest. And many years ago, I would have jumped on getting the Dyson Zone. Well, if we had had a pandemic while I still spent at least 2 hours each day commuting on a train, anyway. They’re perfect for a long commute, stuck elbow to elbow with strangers coughing and leaving their noses uncovered. And the specs say that if you have the filters running on high, that the batteries will give you about 90 minutes of power. And that covers most people’s commutes, at least one way.
If that fits the bill for you, you an order them thru Dyson starting next March. And hey, doesn’t it seem like the pandemic is about to take off again? And will we be past this awful triple-demic we’re in right now?
