When you combine noise-cancelling headphones with an air purifier, Dyson Zone is the result. This is Dyson’s first wearable purifier, which is capable of capturing city pollution including gases, allergens and particulate matter, all the while cancelling unwanted noise with advanced noise cancellation.
How does it work? The headphones utilize precision-engineered compressors within the earcups to draw air through the dual-layer filters, and then negatively charged electrostatic filter media captures ultrafine particles such as allergens, and particles from sources such as brake dust, industry combustion and construction. This all gets run through a potassium-enriched carbon layer to capture city gas pollutants like NO2 and SO2 before the compressor channels the purified air to the wearer’s nose and mouth via the contact-free visor. As for Active Noise Cancellation (ANC), ANC, it boasts a unique array of microphones to reduce unwanted environmental noise and motor tones to provide advanced noise cancellation at home, at work or on-the-go. Large, angled ear cushions mold around the listener’s ear to ensure maximum comfort as well as optimal noise reduction. You charge the headphones over USB-C, but unfortunately, there’s no word yet on pricing or availability.

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 miniaturized air pumps. After six years in development, we’re excited to deliver pure air and pure audio, anywhere,” said Jake Dyson, Chief Engineer.
