Razer Zephyr Wearable Air Purifier: Breathe the Future
First introduced at CES 2021 as Project Hazel, an award-winning concept, the Razer Zephyr is the latest evolution of a wearable air purifier inspired by the principles of staying safe, social and sustainable.
In August 2021, Razer reached out to its global community to beta-test the yet-to-be-launched Razer Zephyr. The program received widespread acclamation and an overwhelming number of sign-ups. Taking in comments and feedback from fans, the Razer Zephyr was designed to provide a smart, eco-friendly mask option.
FDA-registered and lab-tested for 99% BFE, the Razer Zephyr’s N95 grade filters with two-way protection last three times longer than single-use disposable masks and ensure that both breaths of air inhaled and exhaled are safeguarded. Engineered with active circulation, the Razer Zephyr comes equipped with two air exchange chambers that allow air to flow freely in and out of the wearable air purifier.
The Razer Zephyr is enhanced by a pair of 2-speed fans (4200/6200 RPM) that enable increased air circulation for even better cooling, providing freshly filtered air and increased comfort. To top it off, the Razer Zephyr provides seamless social interaction thanks to a transparent design with a layer of anti-fog coating and interior lights for clear facial expressions.
Powered by Razer Chroma RGB™, users can make a statement with the Razer Zephyr’s interior lights and fans that can be easily controlled via the Razer Zephyr app available for both iOS and Android. Designed with comfort and health in mind, a soft silicone face seal with a dual strap design ensures a tight seal over the mouth and nose, while its adjustable head and neck straps provide a secure, yet comfortable fit for all head sizes.
Built for a sustainable future, the Razer Zephyr’s N95 Grade filters maintain optimized filtration efficiency for up to three days, resulting in 80% less waste than single-use surgical masks.
