Dyzon's eco-friendly headphones filter out both noise and air pollution at the same time

That's how much a Dyzon earphone costs that filters both noise and air pollution

Dyzon headphones reduce noise and purify the air at the same time—and they're futuristic, to say the least. Dyson's first headphones caused many to raise their eyebrows. The question is who can afford to buy them.  

The British company "Dyson" is known for making vacuum cleaners and other household products. The company now aims to break new ground by combining its competence in home appliances with another somewhat unexpected area of ​​technology - audio.

Dyzon headphones reduce noise and purify the air at the same time—and they're futuristic, to say the least. Dyson's first headphones caused many to raise their eyebrows. The question is who can afford to buy them.

Dyzon headphones with air purifier filter

Dyson has managed to get a lot of attention with its Zone, the company's first wearable in the form of a pair of headphones.

Released last spring, the Dyson Zone is a pair of wireless over-ear headphones that offer both noise reduction (anc) and air filtration.  

Headphones are equipped with compressors that suck in air from the surrounding environment. The air is then purified in two stages using different filters, and forced out onto a kind of mask that plugs into headphones.

According to Dyson, the headphones can filter air compounds such as nitrogen dioxide, sulfur dioxide, and ground-level ozone. Down to a thickness of 0.1 micrometer (µm), 99 percent of air particles must be cleanable.

Air purification can be performed in three modes with different effects - low, medium and high. But there's a catch: The more effective the air purifier, the shorter the battery life.

Noise reduction by 38 dB

Considering the compressors in headphones, noise reduction is essential. Dyson Zone should be able to reduce the perceived sound level by up to 38dB between 20Hz to 20kHz, using eight microphones that pick up and analyze noise in the environment.

The headphones also use a 40mm speaker driver, and are equipped with two auxiliary microphones for transparency and telephony systems.

50 hours of battery life

Battery life is estimated at up to 50 hours with active noise reduction. However, anyone should

Those who listen and use the air purifier at the same time can be prepared for a significantly shorter usage time. Four hours at most with a low filtration level.

With the top filter mode turned on, the earphones have an expected battery life of 1.5 hours.
The headphones charge via USB-C, and reach 100% capacity in three hours, according to Dyson.

The price then? That the Dyson Zone costs so much isn't much of a surprise. But the price of $949, ​​roughly SEK 9,900, will probably surprise most people. This means that the Dyson Zone is more than twice the price of the popular Sony WH-1000xm5 - and costs several thousand more than the Airpods Max.

What's the price for Dyson's eco-friendly earbuds?

The aforementioned headphones can't compete with air filtration — but the question is whether the sound quality and noise reduction in Dyson's area justify the high price.

It is not yet clear when the headphones will be launched in Sweden and what their price will be in Sweden. Ny Teknik has contacted Dyson in the Nordics for comment.
