Now that face masks have become such an integral part of our day to day lives, it was only a matter of time before the essential personal protective equipment was given a high tech makeover.
Going above and beyond the technical details that protect against the spread of COVID-19 and other seasonal viruses, one innovative new face mask is making it easier to stay connected even while you’re out and about.
What is it?
The MaskFone is a revolutionary device that combines the protection of a face covering with the technology that you use daily. It’s a wireless headphone and mask in one that’s ideal for school, work, or commuting, and helps to streamline your daily routine with its multifunctional design.
A wireless headset uses Bluetooth connectivity to pair with your smartphone or other electronics, allowing you to listen to music and answer calls without ever having to remove your face mask. The built-in microphone features background noise isolation, and the earbuds cut down on white noise for crystal clear audio with every use.
SHOP IT: MaskFone, $67 ($50 USD) (pre-order)
Get up to 12 hours of playtime and hands-free calling on a single charge, and connect to your smartphone assistant with just your voice. You can even feel free to take the mask with you to the gym or on your next outdoor run, since its water and sweat-resistant design can hold up throughout even the toughest workouts.
The MaskFone is made from a washable and durable twill fabric, and for added protection it’s also equipped with a disposable and interchangeable medical-grade N95 filter.
How to shop it
The MaskFone is currently available for pre-order, and retails for $67 CAD ($50 USD) exclusively through the brand’s website. It comes in sizes S/M and M/L so you can find your perfect fit too.
The masks are expected to ship out soon, so be sure to pre-order yours in time for the official launch on Oct. 16.
