First off, Dyson (esteemed maker of expensive vacuums) decided that a 75% noise reduction to their bladeless Air Multiplier fans is an excellent start. It is; Dyson’s engineers have even reduced the 1,000 Hz high-pitch tones that were produced by the original when it was launched in 2009. They haven’t sacrificed airflow either, since you can get 405 liters per second. Of course, pricing is another story.
For some very innovative bladeless fans (they do this by pushing air up from the base, then having aerodynamics of the empty ring and laws of physics handle the rest), you’ll be paying up quite a bit. The new AM06, AM07, and AM08 Dyson Cool fans will run you a cool $300, $400, and $450, respectively.
But, they still are cool, right? No puns? Alright then.
