Why did this mask fail?
video transcriptHey, welcome back everyone. Today, we are testing every single mask on Amazon. And today that means I was really good at sports growing up. The Athphy mask. I like the attempt at the brand here. That's nice, but it's just very hard to say when you do the ATH and the PHY, it's just Athphy. It's hard.
All right, let's get into it. Let's test this thing, huh? All right. So I'm going to jump this guy right into the tester. Nice, first try, and let her rip here. This is a particulate filtration efficiency machine. If you want to learn more about how this works, I'm going to put a link right here so that you can see it. This is resetting. This number's going to change around. That's the drama of what we are doing today, but let's take a look at the actual listing.
So face mask disposal three with three ear loops, design dust particle, 50 pack... It could be more, could be less. You don't know, drama. Look, the mask on the listing, the box, is exactly what we get when it shows up. So I think that's awesome. It's a great design. It's very feels nice. I'm trying to see if they're making any claims. Melt blown a hundred percent customer service a hundred percent and they will have a hundred percent enthusiasm. I like that. It's a hard flex right there. Made in China. Most of these are. Droplets PM2.5 dust. That's kind of a claim, the PM 2.5. That's saying it's blocking PM 2.5 materials, which actually is not that much. PM 2.5 is like pieces of dirt and smog. If you want to block something like COVID, that's actually 20 times smaller. So looking out for that.
Okay. That is a weird claim right there. If you can see that filtration efficiency of salty media. Ooh, you assaulted media. I don't know what that actually was. Ahhh some interesting stuff going on here, but the claim is 90%. That's what they're making. Let's see if they make it. But before then let's open this up. Ooh, kind of nice. This is the first Chinese mask that has had a nice insert. It's got their support right there. This is really nice. It's soft touch. Actually the box is soft touch. How did I miss that? These guys are doing a great job with their brand. I like the plus, it's like medical in their logo, but I have a really hard time saying this word. So I don't love it for that reason. All right, let's open this up.
I'm taking way too long with this one. I don't like this type of... This isn't a real seal. And so you're going to find that smells can get in there in the shipment and stuff, but otherwise, there's a manual packaging, but they did a really great job of that. Opened this up. Yeah. These are pretty weak. I'm really breaking a lot of masks here. So let's switch over to this view. Yeah, this is, on a scale of one to 10, I'm going to give this a two or three. That's not great.
Yeah. This is going to break, if it goes on your face, not a hundred percent of the time, but like that's not bad. That's not bad. Some of these you put on your face and it just breaks off. But I think you're going to be in the store and one or two of these are going to fall off. It's very flimsy. All right, take a deep breath. I'm going to call this smell has been in a box since July of last year. That's it. That's not a terrible smell. I'm going to give this top smell. I don't think anybody would complain about this smell. Ear loops, smell, none of that stuff matters if it doesn't protect you. Now they're claiming 90% weird flex on the box, but what does it actually do? 93.192. Hey, that's not bad, 93.192. I mean they're charging $7.64.
It gets delivered, half of the cost is going to ship big. That's a really, really cheap mask. It's on the lower end. Breathable on this mother, very breathable 62.54. Very breathable mask. So extremely breathable, not extremely protected. All right. I hope you've enjoyed this review as much as I have making it, which is like, to be honest, if I was going to rate how much I enjoyed making this review, it would be about a six out of 10, because honestly, I think I could have done better. So you know what? You don't even have to like this video because I barely do. All right. Thank you very much. And hopefully the next video would be better cause I just got to bring the energy. I got to bring it. We'll catch you on the next set. Thanks so much.
