Wished they make them dual voltage considering the price
So devastated that I will have to give, well basically throw away my Dyson as I am moving abroad with my job and no longer can use it there as their voltages are lower than the one in the UK. Wished that for that price Dyson would at least thought about that since it's an expensive and innovative product!

I expecting more
It's not heavy, but I was expecting it to be lighter, it's not that loud, which is good, it's nice in shape but nothing special if compared to conventional dryers.

The product when it works is very good, but has its flaws
I have had 3 Dyson hairdryers in total, the 2nd and 3rd were replacements for faulty ones. The first one was replaced within one month of the guarantee expiring ( I really think for the price the guarantee should be longer, perhaps 5 years to protect the customer) The hairdryer was cutting out after approximately a minute ( overheating sensor) I read online that if I switch off, leave for a minute it would start again which it did, but I feel for the money I paid for it, I really should not have to be doing this! I have to say that customer ser...vices are very good and no quibble about a replacement. The second hairdryer , the filter cover eventually cracked and broke ( a very flimsy design and if you hold the hairdryer near here it puts pressure on it). The third hairdryer I have just had for 3years ( now out of guarantee) is starting to overheat after a short period like the first one. Do I think it is worth paying 250.00 for a hairdryer which is unlikely to last beyond 3 years? The answer is no! All my previous hairdryers of other makes have lasted longer than this. I would however say the hairdryer is lovely to use, lightweight and efficient, but they really need to work on these design 'flaws'. Amanda

Keeps cutting out
Bought my Dyson hairdryer in Nov 2018, all good until a few months ago when it started cutting out on a regular basis (read everyday). Not sure what to do as just out of warranty. Has been well looked after and filter cleaned daily. Not what I would expect from such an expensive dryer and reputable company.

Good while it works, the cable is a weakness
Almost 1 year old the cord broke internally and so stopped working. I decided to dismantle (voiding the warranty) to understand how such a simple fault could occur. After you carefully "break off" the switch caps dismantling is easy. The cable design is flawed due to the poor choice of both type and gauge, and will fail unless you are always careful with cable twisting and storage. Due to the moulded cable relief/barrier it is impossible to repair and replacement parts are not available to purchase.

light weight but not more powerful than my parlux
I am a little disappointed after my husband spent $600 on this hairdryer as a surprise gift for me. I have a Parlux hairdryer I've been using for around 8 years and when I compare them they are identical with heat, power without the attachments. One thing that I have noticed with the Dyson is the force/pressure of the air blow reduces with the attachments connected which I haven't experienced with the Parlux, the concentrator makes it stronger whereas the concentrator makes it weaker with the Dyson. The only Pro of the Dyson in my opinion is the light weight which makes it easier for my 9 year old daughter to dry her own hair.

Not a fan
So expensive save your money. It makes my hair go so boof and frizzy have tried using different products and different brushes but cannot make it smooth. I have never had issues with any other dryer and takes about the same time to dry my hair as my GHD air dryer. It is lighter to hold maybe better for my hair but I'm not sure?

Not quite worth the money
This hair dryer is great. But it’s not $500 great. It’s actually heavier than my current one. I have really really long hair and bought it because it says it will dry hair faster than a regular dryer - a process which takes me 20-30 mins as is. I thought I might get 10-12 mins back. Not the case at all. It takes the same time but does feel like it’s less harsh on my hair.

Not worth the $450
This hairdryer is good. It takes the same amount of time to dry my (very very long) hair but it dries it to the point of what I would call ‘bone dry’. However, it is heavier than my previous hairdryer and 10x the price. Literally. I wouldn’t say it was 10 x faster or 10x drier so I wouldn’t recommend paying the price. $250 would be an okay price but for all the hype and price tag, it just doesn’t measure up.

Ok, but overrated
The Dyson hairdryer is hyped by several beauty bloggers so I thought I would bite the bullet and invest- especially considering the great success I have had with all other Dyson products.
There really is nothing wrong with the product, it is simply that it is a lot of money for a technology that I found really doesn’t make a difference to my life. Yes, there are no blades...yes, it is a sleek design... but does it really improve the quality of my blow dry? I would have to say no.
I would consider the marketing for the Dyson hairdryer to allu...de that it provides result equal to any professional hairdryer. I found this hairdryer to be less powerful than my old Parlux brand. Maybe if the hairdryer had a cordless technology like the vacuums I would be more inclined to rate it higher. At the end of the day it is still another bulky corded hairdryer. If you have a few hundred to drop on something pretty that provides an adequate level of power, this purchase won’t disappoint you. I do, however, feel that there are other professional dryers on the market that will give a better blow dry for less financial outlay.

Prefer my Parlux
Used Qantas points to buy the Dyson because I wasnt convinced it would be $350 more value than my Parlux. I have been styling my long thick hair for 30 years so have had lots of experience with it. I found the weight in the Dyson handle difficult to get used to and it definitely makes my wrist ache. Time to dry was no better than the Parlux, but most importantly it didnt get my hair as smooth. After several weeks I reverted back to my Parlux and the Dyson stays in the cupboard unused. Its Ok, but not worth the crazy price.

Good hairdryer but expensive
I love my Dyson vacuum so was excited about this hairdryer! I think because of the hype I expected more power but all in all I would say it dries my hair quicker. It takes some getting used to because it is so light but it feels lovely to hold. It’s quiet which is fantastic when babies are sleeping or you’re trying to listen to the radio whilst drying your hair. However I can’t say that the pros justify the cost which is significant. I’ll be interested to see their improvements over the next few years!
It’s good but not perfect
It is strong and not too loud compares to traditional hair drier. It is stylish and not too hot. But every time after I use this my hair will stick together
I got it as an anniversary gift from hubby two years ago when it was new in the market.Could'nt digest the price tag for a hair dryer.My hair is normal wavy hair.
Dries hair quickly
Different temp and airflow settings.
Stylish and compact
I will not invest my hard earned money for a hair dryer this expensive.
It did not do any wonders to my hair.
Good but not worth the $$$
I bought this hairdryer because I bought into the hype. It’s good but not worth the huge expense. It does dry my hair faster than my previous hairdryer and is also lighter to hold. It also his this high pitched noise when first turning it on which terrifies my dog, he now has anxiety and avoids the bathroom when I’m in there.

Hi, the dyson hair dryer I got for my wife has a delay when she on the dryer. All function works fine. The delay is about 1 to 2 sec. And doesn't happen all the time. Is that normal?
