The Dyson Zone is Dyson’s first wearable air purifier, capturing city air pollution together with gases, allergens, and particulate matter, and canceling unwanted noise with advanced noise cancellation and pure, high-fidelity audio.
Jake Dyson has unveiled the Dyson Zone, Dyson’s first step into wearable technology. The Dyson Zone is a set of noise-cancelling, high fidelity over-ear headphones which simultaneously deliver immersive sound to the ears, and purified airflow to the nostril and mouth. The results of over a decade of air quality research and development, the Dyson Zone air-purifying headphones simultaneously sort out the city problems with air quality and noise air pollution.
6 years & 500 prototypes
The Dyson Zone air-purifying headphones are borne of Dyson’s 30 years of experience in airflow, filtration, and motor technologies and deep understanding of indoor and outdoor air quality. The compressors in every earcup draw air by way of the dual-layer filters and project two streams of purified air to the wearer’s nose and mouth, channelled through the non-contact visor. Sculpted returns on the visor ensure the purified airflow is saved near to the nose and mouth and diluted as little as attainable by exterior crosswinds. The Dyson Zone delivers rich, immersive audio and relief from undesirable city noise due to superior lively noise canceling (ANC), low distortion, and a neutral frequency response, to faithfully replicate music or audio as the creator intended.
A scientific approach
A primary foray into the world of audio, Dyson engineers took a scientific approach, selecting to not depend on a ‘golden listener’ approach that many others do. Dyson’s team of audio engineers and acousticians sought to engineer glorious audio led by metrics, backed up with extensive listening trials. The result: pure, rich audio and superior noise cancellation. Despite the house constraints inherent with a wearable device, Dyson engineers developed a high performing neodymium electroacoustic system inside every earcup. A wide frequency response, precise left-right balance and distortion significantly below what might be detected by the human ear, provide a devoted reproduction because the musicians or creators intended.
By fixing the issue of Dyson’s own creation, the engineers have developed a complicated noise cancellation system. Together, the device’s passive attenuation and the ANC, with its unique array of microphones, reduce undesirable environmental noise and motor tones to offer advanced noise cancellation at home, at work and on the go. Large, angled ear cushions mould around the listener’s ear, with a foam density and headband clamp force engineered specifically for each consolation and optimum noise reduction.
The Dyson Zone air-purifying headphones will likely be available online and in-store at Dyson Demo Shops and Dyson.com beginning Autumn 2022. Timings will differ by geography.
