Remember the Dyson Zone? That strange-looking headphone that actually has active noise-cancellation and a built-in air purifier? It has gone into production, and it's coming to Singapore sometime in January.

We now also have more details about the product. Let's talk about the headphone aspect of the Zone first.

It's a wireless headphone with active noise-cancellation. The ANC feature uses 8 microphones around the headphone to measure and monitor noise up to 384,000 times a second, and Dyson claims the Zone can deliver up to 38dB of noise cancellation between 20Hz and 20,000Hz.

The Dyson Zone was tuned using a scientific approach and has 40mm drivers that have a frequency response of 6Hz to 21,000Hz. The driver output is equalised by intelligent signal processing up to 48,000 times a second which combines with noise cancellation to neutralise harmonic distortion to inaudible levels across the full frequency range.

According to Dyson, the Zone's 2,600mAh built-in battery is rated for up to 50 hours of use with audio playback only. If you activate the air purifier along with the headphones, that drops to 4 hours. The Zone charges via USB-C and can get from zero to 100% battery life in three hours.

The air purifier works by drawing air through both earcups and projecting the filtered air to the wearer's nose and mouth. The air goes through dual-layer filters, electrostatic filters, and carbon filters. Together, the filters remove 99% of particle pollution that's as small as 0.1 microns and harmful gases like nitrogen dioxide and silicon dioxide. The air quality can be monitored using the MyDyson app. The app will also allow owners to adjust airflow speed and tweak the headphones' noise-cancellation mode and equalizer settings.

All of this sounds quite fascinating, but how will it feel to use one? Our editor Zach had an exclusive hands-on session directly at Dyson's UK lab, and here's why he feels it's quite a radical product and can't wait to try the final retail version of the Dyson Zone:-

Pricing and availability

The Dyson Zone will be available in Singapore sometime in January. Interestingly, Singapore is the first country in Southeast Asia to get the Dyson Zone.

Pricing has yet to be confirmed and we will update this article once we have details from Dyson.
