Reluctantly bought this for the gf. It's amaze-balls. Like a heat cannon.

Refurb'd from Dyson's eBay store. Looks and works as if it was brand new.

Great deal for what it is, otherwise, stick to $20 junk I guess. It's the best hair dryer on the market, full stop.

Is this really worth it? Like, how does it compare to those $60-70 hairdryers with ionizing and ceramic stuff inside?

I bought the wifey a new one and the raving reviews are raining in from her. Thing is pretty cool in terms of the tech it uses and can put out quite a strong amount of air in a tiny frame.

BTW here's what one review from wire cutter website says: (pasted below)

In the months since we did our initial testing, a new luxury dryer hit the scene: the Dyson Supersonic. Because it had several unique features and other outlets were enthusiastic about it—Gizmodo said "This Absurd $400 Hairdryer Is Actually Worth It"—I spent two months testing it at home.

There's a lot we like about this hair dryer. It dried hair a little faster than our top pick, and the unusual design of the attachments made styling with a diffuser or a concentrator and a round brush easier. That said, we don't think the features it offers are worth $400 to most people.

The Supersonic's stream of air was wider than the competition's, and it maxed out our weather meter, which measures up to 60 mph, making it faster than our pick (though we're not certain by how much). This air speed shaved a couple of minutes off our drying time compared with the Rusk CTC Lite, our runner-up pick. (The Verge got similar results.) However, the air speed also tangled my hair more, and Good Housekeeping found even the lower speed settings to be too strong.

The concentrator and diffuser attachments connect to the nozzle magnetically, a nifty feature we haven't seen on any other dryer. They don't get burning hot, so you can rotate or remove them midsession, unlike on other dryers where you must handle them carefully or angle the dryer awkwardly.

Although the Dyson dryer's speed and attachments are improvements over our picks', we also found features we didn't like, and a few promoted as improvements that we're neutral on.

The position of the speed and heat buttons on the back of the dryer's head makes them hard to reach, and the cool-shot button is in an awkward spot, at the very top of the handle. The cord also has a small power bar near the plug, which itself is bulky; both components make the device more clunky in a suitcase.

The motor sits in the handle of the dryer, rather than in the head, a design that makes the dryer straight and thicker than our top pick and runner-up. Dyson says the motor placement makes the weight of the dryer more balanced, since it's not top-heavy. I didn't notice a meaningful difference. However, if you have trouble gripping a typical dryer, the weight distribution might make gripping this one easier, a reader told us.

The handle-motor sucks air through a fine mesh from the bottom of the handle, rather than through a grill at the back of the dryer, and the company claims it's difficult for long hair to get stuck in the filter as a result. (Much of Dyson's $71 million research-and-design tab for the dryer went to the motor, which is a smaller version of the motor found in Dyson's handheld vacuum cleaners.)

At 1.1 pounds, the Supersonic is heavier than our top pick and runner-up. I found that the heavier cord made my arm tired when I was drying the top of my head. The motor inside is supposed to be quieter than other motors. It is, but the sound it does emit is a high-pitched whine. And the dryer itself is still noisy: The sound of whooshing air is physically impossible to eliminate.

The Supersonic measures the air coming out 20 times a second to make sure it doesn't get too hot—therefore, supposedly, the dryer does less damage to your hair. This feature was impossible for us to test in an empirical way. The stream of air certainly always felt hot, enough that when I used the device to style my sister's hair, she complained that it was burning her scalp. If you're worried about using too much heat on your hair, try using your dryer on a lower setting, or blow-drying less frequently.

One thing that we imagine is driving favorable reviews of the Dyson: It's attractive and unique. Despite its flaws (and the fact that it didn't make my hair look any different than other dryers did), I found myself reaching for it consistently over the Rusk CTC Lite.

The nicely designed attachments and strong airstream make for an experience that's more satisfying than using a less expensive dryer, if not a radically different one. If you decide that it might be worth $400, we recommend purchasing it from Sephora, which has a generous return policy.

Irrelevant. Probably why they have a 94.8% feedback rating.

Does anyone know the condition of these, I've ordered a refurb vacuum from them before and it looked like it came out a trash bin, well used, and the canister still had dust inside.

I thought pink $7 POS Revlon at walmart was too much.
