Dyson has reinvented the hair dryer and created innovative technology for the hair care industry. The Dyson Supersonic™ uses a fast but focused airflow and is engineered for balance in the hand. The hair dryer is quiet and intelligently controls the temperature to help protect hair from extreme heat damage.

  • The Dyson Supersonic™ hair dryer is powered by the patented Dyson digital motor V9, created in-house by a team of over 15 motor engineers specifically for this machine. It is Dyson's smallest, lightest, most advanced digital motor. Spinning at up to 110,000 rpm with 13 impeller blades the Dyson digital motor V9 shifts 13 litres of air every second yet is no wider than 27mm.

  • Some conventional hair dryers can reach extreme temperatures, especially when held close to your head, which causes extreme heat damage to hair. When hair is exposed to extreme temperatures above 150 degrees, pores can begin to form within the strands. When the light hits these pores, it scatters in all directions. This can reduce reflected light, decreasing shine.The Dyson Supersonic™ hair dryer has intelligent heat control, helping to ensure hair isn't exposed to excessive temperatures. A glass bead thermistor measures the temperature 20 times a second and transmits this data to the microprocessor. The microprocessor then intelligently controls the patented double-stacked heating element to help protect hair from extreme heat damage.The Dyson Supersonic™ hair dryer has four precise heat settings. The four temperatures are:- 100°C Fast drying and styling- 80°C Regular drying- 60°C Gentle drying- 28°C Constant cold

  • By using an axial flow impeller inside the motor, Dyson engineers have simplified the pathway of the air, reducing turbulence and swirling. By giving the motor impeller 13 blades instead of the usual 11, they pushed one tone within the motor to a sound frequency beyond the audible range for humans.Also, because the motor is small and compact, Dyson engineers have been able to embed it in the handle, surrounded by acoustic silencers to further reduce sound. The Dyson Supersonic™ hair dryer is engineered to be quiet, without compromising on speed.

  • The Dyson Supersonic™ hair dryer uses Dyson's patented Air Multiplier™ technology. Due to this technology, the volume of the air drawn into the motor is amplified by three, producing a high pressure and high velocity jet of air.Traditional hair dryers can sometimes have a weak airflow, meaning they are slow, whereas others can have strong airflow which isn't necessarily controlled. The Dyson Supersonic™ hair dryer creates a focused jet of air, angled at 20°, for controlled, precise drying and styling. Allowing users to dry and style their hair at the same time.

    The Dyson digital motor is engineered to be powerful yet compact.It's small enough to be positioned in the handle rather than the head, meaning it achieves balance when in hand. Most conventional hair dryers have the motor in the head of the machine, making them bulky and difficult to manoeuvre.

    Dyson engineers have created three precisely engineered magnetic attachments, with 16 patents pending, to further control this airflow allowing you to achieve a range of different styles.- The Dyson engineered smoothing nozzle dries hair gently, using smooth, wide air, allowing you to dry and style at the same time.- The Dyson diffuser is engineered to disperse air evenly around each curl. It simulates natural drying, helping to reduce frizz and improve definition.- The attachments remain cool to the touch. Using Heat Shield technology the hot air is contained within a sandwich of cold air meaning the surfaces of the attachment stay cool.- Being magnetic, each nozzle is easy to attach and adjust.- There are multiple settings including constant cool to set your style; four heat settings, three airflow settings and a cold shot too.
