Yesterday, Razer announced that its Zephyr face mask would finally be going on sale. If you were sitting on the fence regarding the Zephyr and weren’t sure if you wanted to pick up the mask for yourself, then we’ve got some bad news because according to a tweet by the company, they’ve completely sold out within minutes.
To be fair, we’re not sure how many units the company had allocated for its first batch, but regardless, it seems to have been popular enough for people to snap it up that quickly anyway. We’re not sure when the company plans on restocking, but many disgruntled customers in the comments have wondered why a pre-order system wasn’t used in the first place.
The demand for the Razer Zephyr has been overwhelming and our first wave is sold out within minutes. Stay tuned and appreciate your patience as we work hard to restock them as fast as we can. Sign up to be notified when the next batch arrives: https://t.co/GYZgUXnsdK pic.twitter.com/YSNBuYuRaW

For those who don’t know what all the fuss is about, the Razer Zephyr is a face mask that comes with disposable N95-grade filters meant to help filter out airborne particles. The wearable was originally announced at CES 2021 earlier this year and presumably was intended for use for protection against the coronavirus.
The mask itself is reusable and users only need to replace the N95-grade filters every few days. One of its selling points would be the Chroma RGB lighting which looks very outlandish, but we reckon there are people who might actually dig that look.
