Review Razer Zephyr Razer Project Hazel Turned into THIS

all right so let’s get something straight first you know this is not a medical mask this is a accessory with some mask qualities with rgb transparent mid sections so you can see my lips so no longer do you have to hide behind a mask in terms of your emotions and also there is no built-in microphone like they were supposed to be or like there was on the previous project hazel whereas the zephyr it’s uh basically just a plastic contraption with two fans filters in a few areas and uh you know head straps and neck straps so this thing can be comfortable because at 200 grams of like just slightly over that you know it’s heavy it presses on your nose and it’s also a little bit too small for me so it’s definitely unique in the space of where you might need a mask on a daily basis so is the razer zephyr worth it at 99 well how about we find out right after this oh a 30 millimeter frame so it’s a little thicker ideal for multiple locations but is the performance mind blowing exactly introducing the new t30 fans from phanteks the ultimate fan for radiators heatsinks and cases where you need powerful airflow with an excellent sound profile the three rpm mode switch is a clever integration you gotta appreciate daisy chain potential and of course a good looking fan will keep the system clean check out the t30 fan down below so first of all design wise it definitely

feels like something out of a blade runner movie it could 100 be maybe useful on a film set with a future apocalyptic type of environment and you know this is something very easy to recreate in the current day and age to be honest i was uh self-conscious of wearing this thing in public for the first couple of hours just because it’s so bulky it’s very different it has rgb elements it’s almost like you’re coming out from a construction site or something but nobody gave me a weird look or anything like that so on the one hand it’s a good thing because i was a lot more comfortable you know an hour later with this thing but it’s also a little bit unfortunate right now what we get inside we have the zephyr mask itself we have two types of filters the round ones that you populate on each side of the mask right on top of the fan and this magnetic cover that just snaps in place and this really small filter for the mouthpiece through which you breathe and also speak through that’s why the volume is so bad here but i just pop them in there’s little pegs in there that hold the filter in place and another magnetic plate on top of that in total we have three sets of filters so you’re supposed to swap these out every three days if you’re wearing it eight hours a day so not ideal in an environment where you have to constantly be changing filters but of course that is the nature of the mask of wanting to be hygienic

as well but uh you do need to going to be needing to purchase additional filters in the future the filters are also quite expensive which is unfortunate because they’re so tiny you might as well just wear a normal n95 mask by itself which brings us to the hygienic you know options of this thing so it is not a medical mask in any way but it is supposed to act as your n95 equivalent in terms of protection now at first i was wondering like why do we need the fans on each side here right but in reality it’s basically just a plastic box with some soft silicone around your mouth to create a seal but if there are no fans in there you wouldn’t be able to actually breathe right so you need that intake of this tiny fans and the one thing is that at full volume it sounds like a tiny drone that’s flying around you somewhere it’s a little bit annoying of course you can turn down the fan too low and it’s still audible and of course you can turn it off but if you do that then it’s basically you know a little hot box in there you don’t get that much airflow so a few more things the silicone piece is removable so you can wash it with soapy water every time you change out the filters so you can keep the mask clean it is not waterproof the mask like it’s not recommended you walk out with it in the rain obviously because of the electronics so you have to be careful with that and the battery is supposed to last for eight hours with the fan on low without any rgb so you know with rgb illumination this thing is going to die

very soon especially if you have the fans on you can use the mask without the fans enabled but it does introduce a little bit more like warmth into that area and it’s a bit uncomfortable in terms of size it’s a bit too small for me in terms of the interior i wish that uh like silicon suction thing was a bit larger to give me a little bit more of a surface area that can go around my mouth but it’s not uh uncomfortable and as long as you have the straps you know in the proper areas then they also support the weight of the mask because the mask is fairly heavy like it’s almost the size or the weight of a standard headset so imagine wearing a headset equivalent weight right in front of your mouth i really hope you guys can hear me through that but also you probably can hear the fan as well so that’s full speed low and when it’s off it’s completely silent of course given the size of the stain you cannot just fold it and stash it in your pocket it is not uncomfortable around your neck but it’s definitely not low profile either it is very interesting to see this rgb illumination built in that’s actually kind of thoughtful so not only do we have the rgb rings around each filter but we also have interior mouth illumination that you can change to any color you want so this is proper full out rgb illumination that works wonderfully as long as you don’t choose some weird color around your mouth because that looks strange so i’ve worn this thing for about three days both inside the house and outside i’m getting more comfortable wearing this outdoors but of course i just prefer to have my n95 mask in my pocket whenever i need it and replace that instead of needing to swap out these filters and pay raise your insane amount of money i am

noticing a lot more gunk accumulation on the interior so it is good that that transparent section reveals your mouth so you can be one of those people that people can see through the mask when you are showing emotion or you’re speaking through but it does also show off the gunk that is on the other side of this glass and i actually prefer to leave the rgb lighting on the interior to be off so it just looks like a you know a standard mask with some rgb illumination and not really show off my mouth that way so basically that interior part is a bit too small for me and all exhaust or at least a lot of it that i’m feeling comes to the right side right above my nose going directly into my eye and into my glasses as well so wearing this mask with my glasses is absolutely a no-no especially because you can’t just like you know fold the mask underneath the glasses to avoid fogging up probably the most fleshed out thing about this thing is the software experience so you can change the color it connects to your phone with bluetooth you can actually see the battery percentage as well it’s very intuitive and easy to use it charges with the usbc connector which is pretty crazy it has some lighting to indicate when the battery is low when you’re trying to pair when it doesn’t have anything paired onto it and of course we have that button on the right side

to control the fan so you don’t have to go into the app so what to say this thing is very strange and weird obviously there is a lack of vocal clarity and vocal volume because there’s this plastic thing on your mouth that doesn’t let out a lot of the volume uh it’s not very comfortable because the interior part is a bit too small for me and for some reason a lot of the air gets exhausted on this side which i don’t know why i think i have a pretty symmetrical face the rgb element is very cool of course the app works very well and i’m gonna need to turn on the fan because it’s getting a little toasty in there and it’s also quite expensive right like for 99 this is a cool prop for maybe a movie or like whatever for some photo session but i doubt we’ll see a lot of people many people using this on a daily basis for their mask needs because of all the drama because of all the drawbacks i’m not sure if you heard that last part and so that is the razer’s effort let me know what you think of it in the comments below i’m dmitry thanks so much for watching as always you know stay responsible i’ll talk to you in next video
