This blow dryer is definitely quieter. Of course no blow dryer will ever be quiet, however, this is less noisy. My husband actually remarked on that (since he is sleeping when I get ready in the mornings). Infact when you are drying yor hair, you may feel initially that it doesnt have a lot of power if you are used to noisy dryers that have powerful air force. However, despite the fact that this dryer is quieter and the air pressure is softer, it dried my hair faster than any of the other dryers I have had.
All of the T3 dryers are designed for quiet operation with a low tone; however, we invite you to turn on demo dryer in store so you can hear it in person!
