In a way, it is very sad that a product like the Digicare Lead-out Anti-pollution Mask with Bone Conduction Headphone exists. It is a product that is mainly targeted at occupants of cities that have air that is so polluted that you need to wear an industrial grade air filtering mask on a frequent basis. So instead of just an ugly mask that uncomfortably hides half your face, you now have the option of wearing one that has a printed on design and comes with a bone conducting headphone. And it also has the side effect of making you look like Bane from The Dark Knight Rises.
First let us start with the air filter part of the Digicare Lead-out Anti-pollution Mask. This mask has KN95 rated filters. The KN95 rating is the China equivalent of N95 NIOSH (United States National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health) rating. That means it filters out 95% of airborne particles. This is much more efficient than the cheap surgical masks that most people use.
Next comes the bone conduction headphone part. Bone conduction headphones uses the method of conducting sound vibrations through the listener’s skull instead of through the ears. Sound quality is not the best and it may get some getting use to. But this method has one big advantage over normal headphones. External sounds are not blocked by inserting ear plugs into the year or by covering the ear. In a busy city with lots of pedestrians and motorized traffic, the ability to be able to hear your surrounding sounds is very important for your personal safety.
The headphones on the mask connects to your smartphone via Bluetooth 4.0. The mask has audio transmitters that you can adjust to rest on your cheekbones right next to your ear. Located on the audio piece are buttons for adjusting volume and to skip music track. Besides listening to music, the Digicare Lead-out Anti-pollution Mask can also be used by making phone calls. The headphone has a rechargeable battery that can be recharged via a USB charger.
The Digicare Lead-out Anti-pollution Mask may not appeal to most people who are not exposed to extreme levels of air pollution. Furthermore, the headphones cannot be used without the mask. But if you happen to be one of those unfortunate ones that have to deal with haze and smog on a daily basis, this anti-pollution mask cum headphones makes perfect sense.
