Razer Zephyr Pro
The wearable air purifier gets amped up in this Pro edition
Pictured above is the original Razer Zephyr, but the Pro version’s design hasn’t changed in terms of its looks. The main upgrade to this version is the addition of a built-in voice amp. While part of the original design, it never made it to shelves in an effort to keep the price down. However, between the silicone seal and the functional fans, being heard was an issue. The debut of the amped version is slated to ship out this year, but it’ll cost you $50 more than the original, coming in at $149. The rest of the specs are set to stay the same.
