Dyson Supersonic: our gift choice for Chinese New Year 2018

February 12, 2018

You may recall that back in December 2017, our team put the Dyson Pure Hot + Cool Link™ to the test. The results were excellent, so we have been keeping tabs on the brand ever since.

With Chinese New Year this Friday, our team was doing research on luxury gift ideas when we discovered that Dyson has a new limited-edition product that would make a fabulous and very stylish gift for someone special in your life.

Dyson is renowned for their hairdryers: they are sleek, powerful and accompanied by a variety of handy accessories. In Chinese tradition, the red colour is said to bring wealth and prosperity, and is central to Chinese New Year celebrations. Combining these two concepts together, the new limited edition Dyson Supersonic™ hair dryer is, therefore, a perfect fit for the Chinese New Year. Available in a striking red, the product is also accompanied by an elegant red-leather presentation box.

In terms of functionality and design, Dyson is, once again, ahead of its competitors. The Supersonic™ features built-in heat protection, which measures air temperature 20 times a second to prevent extreme heat damage and protect your hair’s natural shine. You will find that the machine dries the hair faster than other hairdryers. It also produces minimal noise, which is a pleasant bonus.


Powerful airflow means drying doesn’t need to rely only on heat. The Dyson Supersonic™ is powered by the patented Dyson Digital motor, which means that the airflow travels out of the hair dryer at 105 mph for fast drying and has a focused jet of air for precise, simultaneous drying and styling.

Due to the built and structure of the Supersonic™, you also won’t get your hair pulled into the hairdryer, which is particularly nice if your hair is very long. This machine has been thoughtfully engineered to make the hair-drying process as hassle-free as possible.

The Supersonic™ is lightweight and easy to use, so forget arm fatigue. Other dryers can be top heavy, but Dyson has shifted the centre of gravity by placing the motor in the handle, so it’s balanced in the hand, making the experience of blow drying much easier. The Dyson Supersonic™ is also pretty small in size, and has a long cord (2.7 m, salon-length) which makes it easily portable around the house. It also includes a non-slip mat and a storage hanger, making it a seamless addition to pretty much any room in your home.

For increased styling options, the Supersonic™ is accompanied by a smoothing nozzle (to dry and style at the same time), styling concentrator (to focus airflow precisely where you need it for styling) and a diffuser (to stimulate natural drying and reduce frizz). The three nozzles attach by magnet, so you can quickly click them on and off, and they are double-walled, which ensures they stay cool to the touch. The styling concentrator was developed with the help of leading hair stylists: its powerful, precise airflow spans the length of your brush, helping you style larger sections of hair more efficiently.


The variety of heat and air flow settings create a more customizable and personalized experience, as you can control how hot and how fast you would like the heat to be pumped out from the machine. The negative ions produced by the machine also ensure there is less static during the entire drying process.

The Supersonic™ has a two-year warranty and includes free shipping.
