If all you’ve ever wanted is to not have to listen to people on the tube, whilst also not breathing the same air as them, Dyson‘s Bluetooth headphones are for you.

A lot of the best headphones are style-conscious and built with design in mind. If you’re an athlete, you’ll want headphones for running that sound great, but also look and feel good too. As time progresses and technology advances, things tend to get smaller. The popularity of bone conduction headphones, that enable you to listen to music and your surroundings simultaneously, has grown.

Seemingly disregarding all of this, Dyson has revealed a set of air purifying Bluetooth headphones to make you look like a DC villain. The Dyson Zone is a set of chunky over-ear headphone, with a pollution-defying mask that filters the air you breathe.

Designed for city dwellers, the Zone is meant to filter out common pollutants such as gas, allergens, and particulate matter. This is all while also blocking out any unwanted noise, thanks to ANC (active noise control). Dyson has described the sound achieved by these headphones as “pure, high-fidelity audio”.

Looking incredibly sci-fi, these large headphones are sure to elicit some eyebrow-raising. The plastic mask is attached to the two headphone cups, housing compressors which draw in air through dual-layer filters. This then projects two streams of air to the wearer’s nose and mouth.

Jake Dyson, the chief engineer has said: Chief engineer Jake Dyson 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.”

Dyson’s announcement of its new Bluetooth headphones was merely a reveal. So far, there isn’t further information on price or specifications. However, some information about the battery performance is available. Intended to be worn only for short periods, the Dyson Zone battery lasts up to 4.5 hours when using the lowest purification rate. It lasts just 90 minutes if used at maximum. Although, if used solely as headphones, the Zone will last an impressive 40 hours. They can be fast charged via USB-C up to 60% from a 20-minute charge.

The Dyson Zone is set to go on sale in Autumn this year. Though no price has been given yet, it is expected they will go for between £500-1000.
