MaskFone: The World's First Athletic Face Mask with Integrated Earbuds

MaskFone: The World’s First Athletic Face Mask with Integrated Earbuds

We all are too familiar with those who do not like wearing face masks. In truth, it can be bothersome when trying to eat or drink, communicate if you are deaf, avoiding maskne, or making and receiving phone calls. Unfortunately, face masks are a necessity for our health and the health of others and are needed. Thankfully, companies are stepping up with fast innovation to help us deal with life wearing face masks. There are face masks with straw holes for drinking and masks with clear windows for communicating with the hearing impaired. Now there’s a face mask made specifically to take and receive phone calls and listen to music without having to take it off. Say hello to MaskFone, the world’s first true wireless headphones and mask in-one.

You read that correctly; this mask is designed with a built-in microphone to take phone calls while wearing it. There is no need to take off your mask while on a call. While virtually attending Pepcom and CES, we were introduced to this wonder-gadget. We instantly wished we had this in 2020; our mask experienced would’ve been more tolerable. With this groundbreaking, optimal face mask from Binatone, you can enjoy maximum protection against airborne health risks (thanks to its 5-layer filtration system) while enjoying a more convenient and serviceable way of taking phone calls and listening to music.

The MaskFone brings together Hubble Connected’s patented technology which includes a built-in microphone that eliminates muffled audio, and PM2.5 filters or medical grade N95 Filters (sold with the MaskFone Premium). You can also just buy the N95 Filters separately to up your protection level. The Bluetooth connected earbuds boast 12 hours of playtime, is IPX5 water and sweat resistant, a built-in microphone, crystal clear audio, voice projection technology, and are Google, Alexa & Siri compatible. Its sleek and clean design combines functionality and fashion.

The face mask comes with the aforementioned filters with replaceable filters. It features hidden cables, and controls that fall along the jawline, a comfortable fit that forms to all face shapes, magnetic earbud holders, adjustable neoprene ear hooks, a stabilizer for an extra secure fit, and is made from washable and durable twill fabric. Plus, its innovation combines several key industries – fashion, technology, health, and safety. As Tim Gunn always says, “make it work!” and Binatone certainly did. Of course, we didn’t expect anything less from a company that’s a leading global manufacturer of innovative IoT, smart home, and consumer electronic devices for the baby, home, personal audio, and lifestyle camera categories.

Retro Cool | Meet THE BRICK Phone from Binatone

If you haven’t noticed, there’s been quite the resurgence of 80’s and 90’s inspired style hitting the market, not just in fashion and beauty, but in technology as well. One of our favorites of these retro tech products is the  BRICK Phone from Binatone. Although it features the cool nostalgic look of the 90’s, the BRICK is a very modern phone. It can be used either as a bluetooth handset for your smartphone or as a powerful mobile phone when you insert your own SIM card, making the BRICK a 2-in-1 device that makes an amazing emergency phone.

Here’s what we love about this retro phone: unlike today’s smartphones, the BRICK offers 14 hours of talk time and one month standby time (over 700 hours without the need for charging); it is Bluetooth compatible with iOS and Android phones, works with any 2G SIM card, boasts a large speaker and a micro SD slot that allows you to load and play your favorite music from your smartphone, gives you the capability to access your smartphone contacts, includes an FM radio, an LED flashlight, and some very cool retro games, including SNAKE

We recently read about a teen who feel asleep with her phone under her pillow, which of course proceeded to catch on fire. Because the BRICK has a bluetooth range of 33 ft, it can remain near you without overheating, while your smartphone is at a safe distance away from flammable fabric. The 2-in 1 original BRICK mobile with 1 month standby retails for $69.99 and can be purchased online at shop.meetthebrick.com.
