Yes, it appears that our plight to stop the slow but sure destruction of our planet and air quality, is not plight-ing quite hard enough. In what can only be described as a product release fit for a dystopian black mirror episode, British manufacturer Dyson have recently announced the Dyson Zone, a set of ‘air purifying headphones’ which claim to protect you within an air-pollution-free bubble – all whilst promising a noise-cancelling music experience. The combo we never knew that we needed.
Last week, CULTED shared details about the release on TikTok, where the product garnered some interesting hot-takes from our scrupulous followers. Let’s see what the CULTED Community had to say this time…
Amusingly, there was more than one reference to cult horror movie franchise SAW (known for its highly gory, often machine-focused deaths) with one comment stating “its the saw trap” (@himalaian_kratos), another quipping “nah thats a saw trap i dont care what no company says” (@figeayreedy) and one last commenter simply announcing “SAW” (@tonytonyomi). Promising!
The topic of actual functionality was broached too: @stmagyar commented “Bro 1 sneeze and you can never use it again” and one punchy follower even compared the mask to OG Pixar Movie from Monsters Inc. suggesting that it looked like the “sound sucking device” from the franchise (@vmoray).
A few eagle-eyed viewer compared the product to the plain old covid-era mask, with @cheekylittletiktoker stating “Just wear a mask”, @r_arabfunny69420 offering the opinion “I just prefer wearing a normal mask (looks way better” and @dylgsdpc8o1t telling us to “Just use a gas mask duh.” Thanks for the tip!
And whilst many expressed reasoning for their feelings towards the futuristic product, there were those of fewer words who felt that a simple “yes” or “no” was quite enough for them. Thanks @monyyping and @grzechhhu – we support those who get straight to the point.
