When it comes to health, safety is always paramount, and when you’re outdoors, wearing over-ear headphones with a mask isn’t the easiest task. Meet the Dyson zone. It’s officially the company’s first portable air purifier to build on their 30-year expertise in airflow, filtration, engine technologies and in-depth knowledge of indoor and outdoor air quality. There are compressors in each earcup that draw air through the double-layered filters and send two streams of purified air to the wearer’s nose and mouth, channeled through the non-contact visor.

The visor is fitted with sculpted returns to ensure purified airflow is kept close to the nose and mouth, as uninterrupted as possible by external crosswinds. In addition to being a portable air purifier, the Zone also delivers rich, immersive audio while blocking out unwanted city noise thanks to advanced active noise cancellation (ANC), low distortion and neutral frequency response. It is expected to go on sale this fall, priced between $600-$1200 USD.

Air pollution is a global problem – it affects us everywhere we go. At home, at school, at work and on the road, on foot, by bike or by public or private transport. The Dyson Zone™ purifies the air you breathe on the go. And unlike face masks, it delivers a plume of fresh air without touching your face, using high-quality 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.
