Quick feature list
XUPERMASK is a disruptive invention in the wearable tech industry for its high-tech engineering that blends wellness with tech. Designed in partnership with Honeywell, a pioneering technology leader in manufacturing and design, Will.i.am has set out to create new standards in both fashion and tech. This is an accessory for the modern lifestyle.
Honeywell is bringing modern tech to the post-pandemic world with this smart mask that ergonomically fits your face and offers several features to help you protect yourself.
According to Darius Adamczyk, the CEO at Honeywell, “XUPERMASK offers wearers cutting-edge design and functionality. Its blend of fashion, technology and function is unparalleled. We are proud to have partnered with Will.i.am on this unique and innovative project,” The mask is designed from high-tech innovative components that include a silicone-based face seal paired with the elastic strap to deliver high performance for the wearers.
Given its highly flexible nature, the mask easily adjusts to any face type without causing any discomfort to the wearer or requiring any additional adjustments. The mask can be worn 365 days anywhere in the world without any need for additional protective face coverings. The multifaceted mask also features HEPA filters to help wearers enjoy enhanced breathability and dual 3-speed fans to optimize the wearable tech for high performance. Also, the Xupermask features active noise canceling feature and super microphone capabilities, Bluetooth (5.0), LED lights, and a magnetic earbud docking system to give you a handful of features in a single face mask. The Xupermask is powered by a highly durable battery that runs for around 7 hours making this mask unlike any other wearable tech products on the market.
In terms of design, the XUPERMASK looks like a movie prop with its two HEPA filters on either side. This is something you could imagine Tom Hardy wearing in a sequel to Mad Max Fury Road. The eccentric look of the mask will surely make you feel cool and slick. The solid matte colors only add to the somber look that gives no-laughing-matter vibes.
According to Will.i.am, “We created XUPERMASK to change the game of our new normal. In this new age of style and security, XUPERMASK is an uncompromising face mask design with high-tech performance for the modern lifestyle. Alongside Honeywell, we’ve engineered a state-of-the-art Smart Mask to provide function with style.”
The mask comes in two distinct colorways: black/black/orange and white/grey/orange. You can find the mask in two different sizes designed to offer an ergonomic fit.
Each mask comes with a sleek carrying case, HEPA filters (3-months supply) ear tips (multi-size), and an accompanying fabric mask.
The masks can be bought for $299 with sizes S/M and M/L.
With the unique capability to blend technology with wellness, XUPERMASK is one of a kind face mask with integrated audio engineering. This is what the future holds for us in the post-pandemic world where we have to prioritize health without compromising on style or technology.

While this is an exciting new wearable tech product for anyone looking to up their face mask game, you should keep in mind that XUPERMASK is not FDA approved (yet). It has only been authorized under the EUA to be used as source control by the public and HCP. This means that the mask is only authorized for use to prevent the spread of coronavirus.
It is only authorized to be used for the duration of the pandemic under section 564(b)(1) of the Act 21 U.S. Code § 360bbb–3b, authorization for medical products to use in emergencies.
This product cannot be used in a high-risk clinical setting and should always be used with HEPA filters in other circumstances. This is not a respiratory protective device or a substitute for surgical face masks.
Additionally, the mask is not authorized to be used for liquid-barrier protection in high-risk aerosol procedures.
