My doctor told me to stay home until the end of the pandemic. I'm so grateful You invented this filter so I don't have to.
This product works wonderfully as a personal bubble... it works a lot less well as a mask for when interacting with others. It gets great comments, I even added some antenna to make it look more cartoon alien-like just for fun... but not being able to take a phone call effectively, or hear very well, were issues that plagued me. I have always had trouble separating sound. The constant fan, even on the low setting made it more difficult to hear. For me, this was already an issue, so I am not sure how this will affect others. What I did to overcome was use a Bluetooth earpiece set which allowed me to take phone calls, but the microphone picked up the echo of being inside a bubble. Also, because I could hear myself so well (echo chamber), I also talked quieter without thinking about it... which made me harder to hear by others. If you are, as designed, wrapping yourself in a cocoon for personal, by-yourself travel... this thing is the bomb. It is comfortable and clearly meant to be your own chamber of solitude... If, however, you are hoping this will allow you to be social... it's not designed for it. On basic functionality: the inside and outside of the clear shield seem to build up static. This creates a shield full of small lint that can accumulate. I am certain some anti-static spray would take care of it, but it hasn't been so bad yet that I couldn't hit it with a microfiber cloth to clean it off.
Thank you for your comprehensive review of AIR1. This initial model's use case was directed towards "personal bubble" circumstances as described and is definitely not ideal for significant social interaction. Although we have had customers modify there's with voice amplification and noise-canceling earphones to use while teaching college classes. We have listened to a lot of feedback from customers and feel our next model significantly improves the wearer's ability to speak and be heard and listen and understand. Check out AIR2 which should begin shipping in about 8 weeks or so.
Wonderful. I sleep using my microclimate air.
I love the hard, clear shell. That’s something no one else in this space has done. I love the visibility for me and others of me. People can see you smile. I was pleasantly surprised by the ability to hear and be heard. If I need to hear someone clearly, I simply reach the side controls and turn it down or off briefly. My favorite thing about Air is the company itself. Michael’s transparency with updates compelled me to buy one. Their ability to adapt and adjust, marketing it for allergens, not just the pandemic is smart. The work to ship faster. And finally their Active Band. They listen to customers. That said, minus one star. I anticipated the Active Band to make this fit better. And it does! However it also feels like an afterthought when it should’ve been integrated with it out of the box. I find it awkward to place on my head with my hand under the scarf while trying not to rip the velcro pads off. But once on, it makes a world of difference. It’s comfortable and I want to wear it everywhere. Know that during the cool temps, it dogs despite fans. But it was meant for indoor use so there’s that. I have a competing product that I placed back into the box once this arrived. I’ve recommended it to others.
If the motor was stronger this would be great for every worker in hospitals
