Big + quiet. When you look at Dyson’s latest products, it’s visibly clear that you’re getting something pretty big and quiet (it’s even in the name), but the Big + Quiet is the brand’s iconic bladeless air purifier. It will take you a minute or two to understand that this is part of the . .
Dyson has strayed quite a bit from its familiar “tall loop” design, going for something that looks like a cute robot wearing an Elizabethan collar or something resembling a “cone of shame.”

the price is INRPriced at 68,900, this is an air purifier as the name suggests. It’s meant for larger spaces, like great rooms and open-plan living spaces up to 1,076 square feet, and it does it without any inconvenience. Therefore, it is large and quiet.
Arriving in an oversized box, the Big + Quiet is unlike any other Dyson air purifier you’ve ever unboxed, and it’s quite intimidating at first. When you pull out the huge bowl-shaped blower and the large cylindrical filter base, both parts are packaged separately and assembly is just a matter of connecting the two parts together.
Launch the MyDyson app, follow the simple steps to connect Big + Quiet to your wireless network, and you’re ready to go. Control is via the included remote control or app as usual, with a power button with a small square display (showing refinement metrics) in the center of the curved dome at the top.
Now, the Big + Quiet isn’t as tall as previous Dyson models, but it stands out simply because of how unique its design is. Although it takes up quite a bit of floor space, the base has wheels so you can easily move around 12 kg of weight. It can be placed in the corner of a room and project air up to 10 meters (approximately 33 feet) away. To clean a room of more than 1000 square feet, you need such kind of throws.
But the engineering behind how it can pump out that much air while being quieter than Dyson and other brands’ bladeless loop fans is a physics lesson in itself.
Big + Quiet uses cone aerodynamics and something called the “Coanda effect” to fuse two streams of air over a smooth surface (the cone). This has the additional synergistic effect of producing a more powerful and condensed jet of air than being pushed out. You can hit it further without the buffeting and noise associated with larger blades.
By intelligently utilizing the curvature of the airflow, Big + Quiet can adjust purified air at 0, 25, and 50 degree angles and push dirty air back toward the filter. Dyson claims an air throughput figure of 87 liters per second (up to 10 meters), which isn’t an easy metric to measure, but given the size of the machine and the feel of the projected airflow. , may be believed to some extent. Full power.
When it comes to purifying filters, the Big + Quiet comes with a HEPA H13 grade filter with layers or activated carbon that captures 99.95% of particulate pollutants, including dust and allergens as small as 0.1 microns. (Dyson)
However, there is one caveat. Unlike other Dyson air purifiers, the Big + Quiet does not spin or provide heated air. The former is less of an issue, but the lack of heating may give people in places like Delhi pause.
When it comes to purifying filters, the Big + Quiet comes with HEPA H13 grade filters with layers or activated carbon. This means that 99.95% of particulate pollutants, including dust and allergens as small as 0.1 microns, are captured by the filter. It’s completely sealed so they can’t escape into the room (activated carbon helps trap gases and odors).
The air purifier can be run in automatic mode, where the particle sensor adjusts the fan speed depending on the amount of air pollutants detected, or manually from one of 10 speed settings. There’s also a night setting to make things even quieter in the bedroom. In sleep mode, Big + Quiet goes into “good girl” mode. In other words, you can see it, but you can’t hear it.
When the Big + Quiet was installed in a fairly large open plan living room that is part of a larger space with a dining area, atrium and open kitchen, it achieved an air supply target of nearly 8.5 meters (at its longest). By supplying a stable wind, we were able to measure straight-line distances without obstructing pillars.
What I liked the most was the Breeze mode on Big + Quiet. This recreates the feeling of a pleasant cool breeze. As you know, not a constant flow of air, but a gentle ebb and flow of the tide. This is perfect for early summer days in Bangalore when just feeling the air movement and ventilation is enough to keep you cool.
Luckily, Bengaluru doesn’t have the abysmal AQI levels that Delhi and Mumbai are belatedly abandoning, so you’ll have to recreate the poor air quality with heavy Indian cuisine without the kitchen chimney. did. All for science.
At maximum fan speed, the Big + Quiet suppressed AQI levels above 200 (as measured by a Prana Pocket Air Quality monitor) to typical mid-40s levels in about 35 minutes. Quite a feat considering the huge amount of air that needs to be handled. For reference, with the Dyson Pure Humidify + Cool that I have in the same room, it would easily take him 2 to 3 times as long to reduce his similar AQI level to a double digit level. In less difficult situations, you may not even notice if the air purifier is turned on next to you when you are watching TV (even at maximum output it only increases by 56 dB).
Overall, the ability to purify the air comes with a premium sticker tag, but the Dyson Big + Quiet feels like a small price to pay for a large space that would normally look like it has multiple air purifiers. You can The air projection is truly impressive, and the equally impressive noise cancellation means it lives up to its name.
