Razer launches Zephyr, an RGB mask
Razer first conceptualized an RGB mask back at CES 2021. Afterwards, Razer announced that the company would manufacture the mask under the name, Project Hazel. The gadget was given an official moniker, Zephyr, in August and was open to beta testing. Finally, on October 21, IGN reported that Razer officially launched the RGB mask for purchase during RazerCon 2021.
Zephyr features an opaque design with an anti-fog coating and hence, people can interpret facial movements and understand the speaker better, particularly those who are deaf. The gadget is an N95 respirator and is rated for fluid resistance. The device is also registered by the FDA and tested for 99% BFE (Bacterial Filtration Efficiency). Thus, Razer claims that the Zephyr protects against more airborne particles than ordinary disposable or cloth masks via its two-way protection.
Moreover, dual intake fans circulate filtered air to improve breathing and the fan speed can be adjusted to 4200 RPM and 6200 RPM modes. The RGB mask also has comfortable adjustable straps and a soft silicone face seal to keep it secured on the face. Notably, Zephyr integrates Razer Chroma RGB lighting consisting of more than 15 million lighting choices.
For US$99.99, Zephyr can be ordered together with three sets of N95 filters. A more expensive option is also available containing 33 sets of N95 filters and the device for US$149.99. Ten sets of N95 filters are sold separately for US$29.99.
