Dyson's latest headphones feature a purifying visor that filters the air in response to growing concerns about air and sound pollution in urban areas.
The wearable device, which is called the Dyson Zone, combines noise-canceling over-ear headphones with a visor that sits in front of the nose and mouth. The company said that the headphones are the result of six years of development and more than 500 prototypes.
Jake Dyson, the company’s chief engineer, 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, using high-performance filters and two miniaturised air pumps.
“After six years in development, we’re excited to deliver pure air and pure audio, anywhere.”
