Dyson’s first wearable purifier — designed to capture city pollution including gases, allergens and particulate matter — also provides superior high-fidelity audio and advanced noise cancellation.

Originally a snorkel-like clean air mouthpiece paired with a backpack to hold the motor and inner workings, the revolutionary Dyson Zone Headphones with air purification evolved dramatically over its 6 years in development, including 500 prototypes. The system is borne of Dyson’s 30 years of expertise in airflow, filtration and motor technologies and the brand’s deep understanding of indoor and outdoor air quality. The compressors in each earcup draw air through the dual-layer filters and project two streams of purified air to the wearer’s nose and mouth, channeled through the non-contact visor. Sculpted returns on the visor ensure the purified airflow is kept near to the nose and mouth and diluted as little as possible by external crosswinds, to deliver a rich, immersive audio and relief from unwanted city noise thanks to advanced active noise cancelling (ANC), low distortion and a neutral frequency response, to faithfully replicate music or audio as the creator intended;
