Dyson has made its mark in India’s wearable tech arena by introducing its inaugural headphones, the Dyson Zone. Originally announced last year, these headphones offer an array of features, including noise cancellation, a transparent mode, and an impressive claim of up to 50 hours of continuous playtime on a single charge.
The headphones come in two variants – Zone and Zone Absolute+ – which differ in terms of colors and box contents. What truly sets the Dyson Zone apart is its distinctive air filtration visor, a detachable accessory accompanying the headphones. This visor distinguishes them in the market, combining top-tier audio capabilities with air purification.
One standout feature is their ability to attach a removable visor that can project purified air. Utilizing electrostatic and activated carbon filters, these headphones efficiently remove particles as small as 0.1 microns and absorb gases like nitrogen dioxide.
The Dyson Zone headphones ensure high-quality audio output, thanks to the presence of 40mm speakers with a 16-ohm neodymium design. Further, it comes equipped with 11 microphones, including 8 dedicated to noise reduction.
They can effectively reduce ambient noise by up to 38dB while continuously monitoring surrounding sounds at a remarkable rate of 384,000 times per second.
Charging the Dyson Zone headphones takes approximately 3 hours to reach a full charge. With the added air filtration feature, these headphones can last up to 4 hours in low mode, 2.5 hours in medium mode, and 1.5 hours in high mode.
Users can seamlessly control various functions of the Dyson Zone headphones via the MyDyson app, which includes adjustments for airflow speed, noise reduction mode, and audio equalization.
