“A mask with earphones?” Yeah, you read that right. After all the safety, comfy fit and fashion tips, face masks are set to turn techy too. Bringing the world to a halt, COVID-19 has left most of us confined to our homes. But, it has also inspired innovators to rise to the occasion and come up with some more out-of-the-box products too.
Latest on the list of COVID innovations is an N95 face mask with Bluetooth earphones. It is indeed interesting to see tech firms experimenting around face masks. But, the new custom N95 face mask does make up for some convenience as we need to wear mask whenever we step out of the house but may have other works, or calls to make on the go too.
Key Features of Hubble Connected Maskfone
Notably, the tech firm behind the unique N95 face mask is none other than the Hubble Connected. The new face mask has been named, Maskfone. It features built-in earphones and a microphone in order to allow users to make phone calls on the go as well as to comfortably listen to music with their mask on.
Talking of the design, the N95 mask with earphones features an elastic neoprene earhook. Maskfone also comes with N95/FFP2 filters, a medical-grade replaceable PM 2.5 and IPX5 water, besides a washable fabric to make it reusable and hygiene–friendly.
Powered by the Hubble Connect application, Maskfone also allow users to project their voice while talking in person. Notably, it also comes with a great battery life and can run up to 12 hours of playtime on a single charge.
Maskfone buyers can also spot three buttons on the right side of the mask to pause, play and control volume. The innovative N95 face mask has been designed to be compatible with various voice assistants too including Aliexa, Siri and Google Assistant.
Mask with earphones to facilitate efficiency
As per the Indian Express report, Dino Lalvani, Maskfone Founder shared that she feels that this is a viable solution for the public to conveniently and efficiently operate amidst a global pandemic. MaskFone is currently set at a starting price of $49. However, we aren’t yet sure when the new face mask with earphones will be coming to India.
Maskfone might not be one of those transformative innovations that can change the world. But, after working our ways with BorosilSuraksha UV Kit and constant hassle with our face masks, the new N95 face mask with Bluetooth earphones definitely seems like a curious product to try on.
