What kind of mask have you been wearing recently? Ever since the COVID-19 pandemic picked up, masks have become mandatory accessories in many places of business — and in response, people have gotten creative with what they’ve chosen to wear outside of quarantine.
Whether they’re patterned cloth masks or simple surgical masks, there’s no shortage of ways to protect yourself and others from the novel coronavirus. Tap or click here to see how the most popular types of masks compare with one another.
But if you’ve been looking for a mask that’s a cut above the rest, have we got something to show you. This mask will not only protect you from dust, bacteria and other ultra-fine particles, but it can also play music wirelessly and take phone calls, too. How? Let’s just say you can feel it in your bones.
This mask is the ‘Bane’ of coronavirus gear
It might look like what Bane wore in “The Dark Knight Rises,” but this mask is here to help. Designed by Vivzone, this Bone Conduction Audio Mask gives you a surprising amount of features in a lightweight, futuristic package you can wear on your face.
Right from the get-go, this mask is able to filter out ultra-fine particles thanks to filters mounted in the front. But that’s not all, it can also play music and answer calls. Just connect it via Bluetooth to your smartphone of choice and you’re good to go.
But if you’re worried about the lack of earphones, don’t be. This mask has a much cooler way of transmitting music and sound. The pads that extend from the sides of the mask to your temples use a special technology called “bone conduction.” This means it transmits the vibrations of your music and phone audio directly to your eardrums through your jawbone.
Bone conduction is the reason you can hear the sounds of your toothbrush when you brush your teeth at night. And thanks to the magic of modern audio technology, the vibrations produced by this mask are fine-tuned enough to transmit audio perfectly.
Pick up this mask, and you’ll be able to take on whatever pandemic life throws at you. Just try not to start any revolutions or injure any superheroes while you’re at it.
