Hair dryer design hasn’t fundamentally
changed since the 1960s. Most still use large, bulky motors that can only fit
in the head of the machine. The Dyson Supersonic™ is different. It’s
re-thought. It’s small yet powerful digital motor sits in the handle,
completely changing the way it works.
A glass bead thermistor measures the air
temperature 20 times per second, guarding against extreme heat damage to
protect natural shine.
The heart of the machine is the small
and powerful digital V9 motor for fast drying. Conventional motors can be slow
as 12,000RPM. The Dyson V9 motor is fast, at 110,000RPM, moving 13L of air each
second to create a controlled, high velocity airflow.
It’s engineered for balance, with a
motor that sits in the handle, for a new kind of drying experience.
It’s acoustically tuned for
conversation. The powerful motor is tuned to produce one inaudible frequency.
And it’s enveloped by a vibration reduction system, further reducing the
transfer of noise between the motor and the case.
