Announced earlier this year, the Dyson Zone headphones are engineered to tackle the dual challenges of city noise and air pollution, providing a pure, immersive listening experience and on-the-go air purification.

The Dyson headphones deliver ultra-low distortion, advanced noise cancellation and faithful, full-spectrum audio reproduction. A detachable visor projects purified air to the wearer’s nose and mouth. Electrostatic filters capture 99% of particle pollution as small as 0.1 microns, whilst K-Carbon, potassium-enriched carbon filters target prevalent acidic gases most associated with city pollution, including NO2 and SO2.

Powered by advanced lithium-ion batteries and USB-C charging, the Dyson Zone headphones offer 50 hours of audio-only run-time, or 4 hours of combined purification and audio run-time, charging to 100% in 3 hours.

Pricing will start from £749.
