    The tech is interesting and is probably ahead of its time, but i think this would be a great idea if they are able to integrate it right into motorbike helmets. If the filtration could be built into the helmets, you would have a much larger target audience.

      Integrating air filtration into motorbike helmets without creating a perfect seal would prove flawed. If the filtration system cannot prevent pollutants from entering the helmet it will not provide the intended benefits in terms of improving air quality for the rider.

    my confusion is why didn't they just make a motorcycle helmet which cools the driver with a fan, has decent quality headphones and somewhat filters the breathing air? That way the pricepoint for the materials makes more sense and there's an actual target audience. Also that would help with the weight issue as a helmet will already be heavy. AND it could actually have a seal.

    I think the Loss Leader idea is spot on here. As soon as I saw your thumbnail I thought these headphones looked stupid and impractical but wanted to see this mess. While you were giving a breakdown on Dyson the company it made me think hmm... I could use a new vaccum and there has to be a reason people spend soo much on them. I have never in my life felt compelled to navigate to Dyson's website. Now I'm looking through their product catalog considering the bladeless fan.

    • Omar B

      @Too Damn Tall The Hot + Cool fans are incredibly reliable, I used to burn out space heaters too often before I got the Dyson.

      Seems like an easy enough mod. You can see light through the ear cup, all you would have to do is block the vent hole, perforate the chamber between the fans and the earcups and remove the filters for extra airflow. Filter not needed cause ears don't breathe.

    I have their Purifier Hot + Cool Formaldehyde. It's less good than a traditional fan, but a traditional fan doesn't purify air at the same time and when it gets a bit colder heats. It's perfect for a smaller room like a bedroom to have it constantly running on night mode. Thanks to the app (and also just smelling) I notice an improvement in air quality.
    So yeah, especially their purifiers is a jack of all trades, master of none.

    The seal is obviously an issue here, but it only has particulate filtration so you should still be able to smell stuff due to molecules. Also, COVID always travels as part of a bioaerosol which includes microbes, water, and protein.

      Mike just made an assumption about their effectiveness. Just because he's a medical doctor doesn't mean that he knows anything about fluid mechanics.
      It's really annoying that people just take other people's words as facts just because they have a Dr. in front of their names or because they are UAclipsrs.
      If you have a medical problem ask a medical doctor. If you want to know the effectiveness of an powered air-purifying respirator ask an expert in that field.

    You gotta seal the entire mouth and nose areas to make the air filtering truly work as the price allows it. I'm not even confident with the magnets as the only hinge/attachment points. It's like they're trying to market the headphones but the air filter and mouthpiece combo is just a bonus afterthought. At this point just make a strap for the back of the head and a sturdy mask in front to balance the overall design and call it IronMask.

    Dyson should just re-release the headphones part without the filtration, shiny gloss surfaces (scratch magnet) & as lightweight as possible with the ability to turn on/off noise cancellation & it will sell quick. They should just focus a bit more on the joystick interface (much better than touch), make it more ergonomic & easy to use. Maybe incorporate water proofing as well.
    And then make fashionable N95 masks that go well with the headphone in aesthetics & also sell the masks separately.

    I think it actually looks quite cool if you were going for a cyber punk sort of look although the finish on the mask part is such that it lets it down and if it sealed that would be a lot cooler. I can imagine a youtuber wearing this for their videos all the time as part of their brand maybe with some customisation.

      I can guarantee you that they have MANY consultants, and they did multiple rounds of testing and focus groups.

And sadly the people responsible for green lighting ideas live in a bubble of wealth which no amount of information can penetrate. More than likely, this thing is just to get people talking about the brand to hopefully boost sales of their other products.

    From the thumbnail, seeing these on a headphone made me think it was some kind of smell-o-vision gimmick. But if they wanted a product that worked, I feel like they should have gone for a filter that rests in the center of the back and pipes to a mask that seals on the face. Then upsell with the headphones as an alternate mounting point for the mask.
    The interface and I/O on the headphones seems really nice, though. I wish I could have something like that on my Treks Titanium, which require *both* hands to operate, with a primary button on the left and volume buttons on the right.

    Edit: Also I think the feature at 16:45 is a bit misleading, ANC doesn't protect your hearing in the same way actually lowering the loudness levels does, so a loud environment with ANC on will still stress your ears and even slightly higher volumes over extended periods can cause hearing damage.

    Regarding the Dyson vacuums, the one without filters are actually bad, the fine dust they throw in the air, and the limited usability, I wish I never bought a Dyson Vacuum cleaner and will never will again.

    It's such a strange combination to me 😅 people wear headphones in two situations: 1. Gaming/working indoors, where you can put an air purifier for less than 1000,-. 2. Outside while on a walk/jog, or commuting... in the fresh outside air 😅
    If it's just a facemask with an air purifier in it, it'd make more sense to me. (If the filtration works both ways of course) that way, you can wear them when you're feeling sick, or when visiting someone who is sick themselves.

      The crazy part is that some of their prototypes look a whole lot less "dyson", but could easily find a market in the cosplay and "cyber punk" crowd.

    I wonder if there's even more issues caused by the Bernoulli Effect. That is, blowing a concentrated stream of air into a partially enclosed space, while unsealed from the open environment, actually draws air in to that same larger space from the open environment. So while it's blowing a stream of fresh air into the face mask, and while it's unsealed and open to the air around you, seems to me the Bernoulli Effect might end up sucking in air from the air around the outside of the facemask

    The dyson price tag is justified unlike most brands of anything these days. The engineering and longevity of the dyson vaccuums are unmatched unless you wanna buy an industrial vacuum.

Had it for years til i got the pighter cordless version

    Hmm if it feels heavy to move around with it fumbled with the comfort design. I own a pair of DCA stealths, sure they are slightly less heavy at 420-ish grams or something, but the way they're designed makes them really comfortable to have on and move around in.
    On the other hand they are one of the top audiophile closedback headphones out there and need a lot of power and a good Dac and the cable is pretty massive so they aren't really meant to be walked around with

    I might think about the Dyson fan as my body for some reason hurts when a fan blows air at it. It's the weirdest thing ever as outside air can blow at any rate and I'm fine, but air from a fan literally hurts me for some unexplainable reason. I wonder if that Dyson fan would fix that as it seems more like a normal flow of air you get outside.
