Good things come in small packages is the case with Dyson’s new AM96 10″ Desk Fan that’s 75% quieter than the original, but still packs the same powerful airflow. Unlike most fans that are built with slow-running motors that spin the blades to reduce noise, this powerful and quiet fan features fast motors that minimizes noise with a brushless DC motor that consumes 30% less energy than AM01 – yet generates powerful airflow thanks to an aerodynamic diffuser that separates airflow into controlled parts, creating a more efficient trip to the loop.And since air is accelerated via an annular aperture, surrounding air is projected into smooth, high-volocity airflow without the need for blades. This equals no choppy air whatsoever.
And because there are no blades, you can easily clean it with one wipe – no more awkward grilles to clean. There’s a nifty sleep timer so that the fan can be programmed to turn off after a certain time ranging from 15 minutes to 9 hours. You can control its ten airflow settings via its remote control that’s curved and magnetized to store on the machine. Three different color options – White/Silver, Black/Nickel and Iron/Blue – are available for $299.99 each.
