Finally, a Face Mask With Built-In Bluetooth Earbuds
Cue infomercial voice:
Has this ever happened to you?!?
You’re about to take a stroll to the grocery store and you need to put on a mask. But, you just pinched the cables of your headphones? Or worse, you take your mask off, forgetting your headphones are on, and suddenly the earbuds are tumbling onto the sidewalk.
It’s a nightmare!
Well, worry no more, now that someone has finally become conscious enough about this pain point in modern life to see the natural solution: a mask with earbuds built in!
It’s so simple, that you have to wonder why this didn’t become a thing back in April.
Enter MaskFone, a face mask that not only features a Bluetooth headset and earbuds, but a five-layer filtration system. In short, it’s stylish and extremely functional, covering the scientific needs of limiting the spread of COVID and modern life needs of needing to listen to a podcast while out and about without having to untangle cables from your mask.
According to Mashable, the earbuds have about eight hours battery life before needing to recharged, and can withstand getting wet, making them ideal for workouts. They also have one-touch activation for voice assistants like Siri, Alexa and Google Assistant.
Public health officials have urged continued and increased mask use in the coming months to help mitigate the spread of the virus as vaccine rollouts (slowly) get underway. Simultaneously, there have been concerns about waste from single-use masks.
The MaskFone solves that issue the way a lot of other masks made for active lifestyles do: changeable filters. The MaskFone comes with three, and has a pocket for easily replacing them when the time comes.
It also has other features common for more upscale products and accessories, like a carrying pouch.
It’s a wonder this didn’t happen sooner. Masks suddenly became the hottest item in retail and promotional products, as pretty much the whole world started buying them for the fist time. That demand should remain steady, at least for awhile, so there will certainly be more innovations that solve the lower-stakes problems of the pandemic, like being able to listen to music conveniently while wearing a mask.
