Now reduced to just $26.00 the Revlon RVDR5045 just can't be beaten on value and performance.
Not as quiet as the Whisper Light, but the all round performance of this great lightweight dryer makes it to the top of our leaderboard.
How long will we have to wait until we get our hands on a 100% silent hair dryer? The only chance we have at the moment of drying our hair in complete silence is to follow Vogues Guide to Air Drying our Hair in the sunshine.
However, there are positive signs from the Dyson engineers with the first concept image of the much rumoured Dyson HairBlade. We will have to wait for the Dyson Hairblade's launch to know if it is a completely silent hair dryer but the signs are good that the HairBlade will be much quieter than most hair dryers.
In the meantime its our job to bring you at least the quietest hair dryers that are currently available and then test and rate them to help you make your decision on the best hair dryer for you.
As soon as a so called silent hair dryer hits the market, rest assured our QHD elves will be all over it to run it through our decibel test to see if it makes our quiet hairdryer leaderboard.
The Dyson Hair Dryer is finally here, available now to pre-order direct from Dyson. Known as the Supersonic, due to its high powered, yet ultra low noise level, the Dyson Hair Dryer is set to become of the quietest yet highest performing hair dryers ever released.
We have been eagerly awaiting the announcement of Dyson's hair dryer launch to see if it will become the ultimate quiet hair dryer to top our leaderboard as we hunt out the best quiet hair dryers on the market . Our Dyson Supersonic review looks into the story behind the development and reviews the features and benefits , which Sir James Dyson believes will turn the market on its head.
Dyson's approach has always been to innovate by addressing the flaws and problems with the existing market.
It is estimated that women spend a total of 10 whole days in a year blow drying their hair. That's a lot of time to be spent on an activity which for most is a frustrating and uncomfortable chore.
Add this up over a lifetime and its over a year solid spent blasting a high volume motor into your ears. whilst straining your wrist and damaging your hair with a bulky overheating hair dryer.
Our time is short and precious therefore Dyson believe time spent hair drying should be a positive experience with much better results. There has been zero innovation and change in the hair dryer market for over 60 years , claims Stephen Courtney Project lead at Dyson
For the past 4 years Dyson have thrown 103 engineers and over £50m at developing the Dyson Hair Dryer. Based in the state-of-the-art hair laboratory at Dyson HQ in Wiltshire, England, engineers have tested countless prototypes drying over a 1000 miles of real hair before finding the right balance of comfort and results to cater for all various hair types found across the world.
The sound waves from the Supersonic can operate at an ultrasonic level, which humans are unable to fully hear. Whilst not completely silent, the Supersonic is therefore able to produce powerful results whist rapidly reducing the volume of the motor for a more comfortable experience.
The following key features showcase the Supersonic as a quieter, lighter hair dryer, capable of producing professional results with comfort and ease :
The attachments for the Supersonic are all magnetic, which elegantly click into position without the need the screw or fasten.
Quality does have its cost and at $399 it's twice the price of most professional salon dryers. The Supersonic is a premium product targeted for the high end consumer and beauty professionals. However Dyson have a proven track record of showing consumers the investment is worth paying for an appliance that can turn a mundane chore into an enjoyable positive experience.
Customers once gasped at the price of the first Dyson vacuum cleaners and Sir James Dyson feels it is more important to produce a quality product that satisfies customers than appeal to the wider mass market. "It's not so much how many you sell that's important, it's whether people who buy it like it," he told the BBC.
It's a big investment but considering the amount of time we spend drying our hair then we believe it is money well spent. Hair drying becomes an enjoyable activity, your hair will be healthier and your ears and senses will be protected by the low noise level.
The Supersonic turns the morning ritual from a headache into a mindful meditative experience, allowing you to think, before hitting the day with great looking hair.

The quietest hair dryer from our tests at 72 dB, the Whisper Light is also a great salon performer.
You may be paying a touch more than say the Allure 2200w, but this is a solid professional hair dryer which also comes with the peace of mind with a 5 Year Warranty from Bio Ionic.
NanoIonic Hybrid Mineral Technology emits Natural Negative Ions and Unique Far Infrared Energy which hydrates air whilst drying to prevent frizz in super speed in super quick time.
Ultra-Quiet Noise Reduction Technology for stress free hair drying.
The Centrix Q Zone Quiet Hair Dryer has been massively reduced since its Salon Only days, allowing you to purchase this professional hair dryer at a great price.
This came out 3rd in our results mainly due to being more expensive then the Allure 2200w and not as quiet as the Whisper Light but the Centrix is a safe bet as an affordable quiet hair dryer that offers salon results.
The Centrix Q Zone Quiet Hair Dryer uses ceramic tourmaline and integrated Ionic element which evenly flows air locking in moisture into your hair as you dry leaving it soft shiny and frizz free.
A nice touch on the Centric is the easy to switch speed and heat settings which are available at the front and back of the hand grip.
Super quiet air flow giving you salon results without the noise.
