The Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer is a complete redesign of a regular hair dryer, using Dyson's Air Multiplier technology.

This means that instead of the usual spinning blades, Dyson's hair dryer is powered by a 1,600-watt motor inside the handle of the dryer. The motor is mounted on rubber, to reduce vibrations and noise when the dryer is operating.

The hair dryer also has a sensor that measures air temperature 20 times a second, and sends the feedback to the microprocessor, which adjusts heating accordingly.

It also comes with three magnetic snap-on nozzles: a Smoothing nozzle, a Styling nozzle and a Diffuser.
