The Dyson Supersonic™
We spoke to Dyson to get all things supersonic. Read more to find out why their hair dryers are so fantastic and now why every single stylist at Paul Edmonds London has one added to their kit bag.
James Dyson: “Hair dryers can be heavy, inefficient and make a racket. By looking at them further we realised that they can also cause extreme heat damage to hair. I challenged Dyson engineers to really understand the science of hair and develop our version of a hair dryer, which we think solves these problems.”
The Dyson Supersonic™ hair dryer uses a fast but focused airflow, is engineered for balance in the hand and intelligently controls the temperature to help protect hair from extreme heat damage.
The Dyson Supersonic™ hair dryer has been tested on different hair types and test rigs, which mechanically simulate different hair drying techniques. To date over 1010 miles of real human hair have been used in testing.
Helps protect natural shine
Some conventional hair dryers can reach extreme temperatures, especially when held close to your head. This can cause extreme heat damage to your hair. 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, which intelligently controls the patented double-stacked heating element.
A team of Dyson aero-acoustic engineers sought to understand how the acoustics of this machine could be optimised. By using an axial flow impeller inside the motor they have simplified the pathway of the air reducing turbulence and swirling. And by giving the motor impeller 13 blades instead of the usual 11, Dyson engineers pushed one tone within the motor to a sound frequency beyond the audible range for humans.
Also, because the motor is small and compact they have been able to embed it in the handle, surrounded by acoustic silencers to further reduce sound. The Dyson Supersonic™ hair dryer is a hair dryer engineered to reduce noise, without compromising on speed.
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.
It is up to eight times faster than other hair dryer motors and half the weight. In addition, because the Dyson digital motor is engineered to be powerful yet compact it is small enough to be positioned in the handle rather than the head; because of this the machine is engineered for balance. Most conventional hair dryers have the motor in the head of the machine.
Fast & focused
The Dyson Supersonic™ hair dryer uses Dyson’s patented Air Multiplier™ technology. The volume of the air drawn into the motor is amplified by three due to this technology, producing a high pressure, high velocity jet of air.
Traditional hair dryers can sometimes have a weak airflow, meaning they are slow. Others can have strong airflow, but it is not necessarily controlled. The Dyson Supersonic™ hair dryer creates a focused jet of air, angled at 20° for controlled, precise drying and styling. Allowing you to dry and style at the same time.
“Innovate design, great technology and fantastic results make this my go to product of hair dryers, I know our clients will love it as much as I do!” Paul Edmonds
