Five years ago, Dyson bid farewell to the blade by inventing the world’s first bladeless fan, the Dyson Air Multiplier™. Never satisfied, Dyson engineers have spent the past three years improving their original design. They went to painstaking lengths to acoustically engineer a fan that is 75% quieter than its predecessor, while maintaining the same powerful airflow.

  • High speed air creates noise, which can be difficult to disguise. Dyson Cool is engineered to deliver powerful, smooth air, without the nuisance of noise. A specialist team of Dyson acoustic engineers designed a Helmholtz cavity to capture sound waves travelling through the fan. The cavity alone eliminates tones of up to 1,000Hz; similar to the tone produced by a mosquito's beating wing.

  • The new Dyson Cool™ fan is the result of a £40 million pound investment in research and development. Air is drawn in by an energy-efficient, brushless motor. Airflow is then accelerated through an annular aperture, passing over an air foil-shaped ramp, which draws in and channels its direction. This creates and projects powerful, smooth, high velocity airflow.
