“Strange” or “trendy”? After the launch of the new Dyson Zone air-purifying headphones, Londoners have mixed opinions.

In front of the Oxford Street demonstration store where they can discover the helmet in the window, the reactions are not lacking.

“At first it looks silly, but a few years later more and more people are starting to get used to it. For now, it’s the beginning, it’s going to seem a little weird. I wouldn’t use it myself, but ask me again in 20 years, and you’ll see what I’ll say,” says José Baptista.

“I don’t think I’ve ever seen anything like it before. So it would be strange at first. But obviously, if this product becomes very famous, I think we will all get used to it. Maybe it won’t be so strange if we start seeing people wearing them. But at first, yes,” adds Brenda, a student.

The Dyson company specifies that the product was imagined and developed before the COVID-19 pandemic.
