That promises to revolutionize audio the same way that the Segue scooter promised to revolutionize transportation.

April Fools was my initial reaction too. However, the website says it has been in development for 6 years. I hoped this was a joke, but they set the announcement date a few days before joke day so maybe no. It also is timely to release it as COVID mask mandates come to an end – especially if this isn’t tested as a medically effective virus mask. There’d be tons of confusion about marketing a product that won’t or can’t be accepted as a viable mask.

Dyson says this was originally just an air filter concept, but user testing led to adding audio…so the sound quality may fit the profile of a bundled function and afterthought. “The best sounding vacuum cleaner on the planet.” Those headphone cup shaped objects are air intakes and filters, while the mouth and nose bar is where the clean air comes out. The audio drivers may be the size of mini on-ear headphones.

Never heard of those (until now)!

Has anyone demoed or bought a pair of Schiit Tyr amps? These seem to be the 200 W (8 Ohm) or 350 W (4 Ohm) monoblock version of the Aegir.

I’m planning on trying to make it over to Munich but with ISE the week before, I’m not sure how many trade shows I can handle in such a short period of time :smile:
