Dyson Supersonic hair dryer

Overall Rating: Good



It’s one of the more popular hair dryers in the market, promising to dry hair in about half the time it usually takes. And while it surely delivers on that promise, you sometimes can’t help but wonder if cutting drying time in half is worth three times the usual price of a hair dryer. With that hefty $400 price tag, you’d think a Louis Vuitton logo or a Porsche emblem is stuck to it.


Dyson is a British technology company established in the United Kingdom in 1991.

It designs and manufactures a diverse list of household appliances such as vacuum cleaners, air purifiers, hand dryers, bladeless fans, heaters, hair dryers, and lights. And as if that’s not diverse enough, they’ve recently announced they will also start manufacturing electric vehicles.


It should be noted that more than a few users have reported an issue with the Dyson Supersonic breaking down after only a few months use. While the warranty ensures a replacement if a unit gets busted, some report long waiting times while some not even getting their replacements at all. Sure, things break, one can argue. But for $400? We expected more.

Pros and Cons Dyson Supersonic:

  • Sleeve, aerodynamic design comes in lots of stylish, fun colors
  • Engineered to protect your hair against heat damage for smooth, shiny styling
  • Intelligent heat technology available at most luxury stores like Nordstroms, Sephora, Ulta
  • RICEY. On average, this product is at least $100-$150 MORE expensive than its competition
  • Air intake through the handle means tired arms and fatigue when you’re trying to get that perfect finish
  • No infrared technology means speed may not be noticeably quicker than its competition
