Dyson launches wild noise-cancelling headphones that clean the air you breathe

Dyson has revealed the strangest headphones we’ve ever seen, combining a pair of over-ear noise-cancellers with a pollution-beating mask that filters the air you breathe.

The Dyson Zone air-purifying headphones are designed to capture city pollution, such as gas, allergens, and particulate matter, while blocking out unwanted noise with ANC and what the company describes as “pure, high-fidelity audio”.

Building on the company’s 30-year history of developing airflow, filtration, and motor technology, the headphones contain compressors in each earcup that draw air through dual-layer filters, and then project two streams of purified air to the wearer’s nose and mouth.

The visor-like mask element of the headphones isn’t totally closed off like a surgical mask and doesn’t actually come into contact with the wearer’s face, avoiding irritation and discomfort. To prevent crosswinds from introducing polluted air into the visor, sculpted returns keep the purified air close to the wearer’s nose and mouth.
