Dyson AM07 vs Dyson AM08: Which Bladeless Fan Is Better?

Our focus here will examine the two bladeless fans from Dyson, AM07 vs AM08. While some features are the same, there are others that need to be considered before you buy one. To help you decide we will discuss their looks, settings, and functions.

Dyson is the leading brand for producing quiet household appliances. Both the AM07 and the AM08 are newer models of a louder version. With such an infamous brand name there is a higher price but both models come with a 2-year warranty for the fan and the cost of labor. In terms of quality, Dyson is the number one provider.

Dyson AM07 vs Dyson AM08

First, we will talk about what these the Dyson AM07 and Dyson AM08 have in common.

Both machines are power efficient, bladeless fans. While they are called bladeless, they actually have 9 asymmetrically aligned blades, which push the air around. These blades are positioned so that you can’t see them. This is an excellent safety feature, especially if you have children.  It also makes for a much more attractive fan that is easier to clean.

Dyson has advertised these bladeless fans as 60% quieter than there previous versions.

The AM07 and AM08 have 10 airflow settings. You can adjust the temperature by using the remote control. The remotes are magnetic, a nice little detail, so you can stick the control to the fan and not worry about losing it. The temperature settings can be seen on their LED display. You can also set a sleep timer on the fans ranging from 15 minutes to 9 hours. This means you will never have to worry about waking up too cold.

Dyson AM07 vs Dyson AM08: Oscillation

Dyson AM07 Review

The oscillation is the angle at which your fan will turn. Fans will normally oscillate from a range of 70º to 90º.  Traditionally, a wider oscillation range would cool larger rooms.

The Dyson AM07

The warm air is sucked up in the base and cooled air is released through the fan. The AM07 oscillates at 90º, this means the cool air is more evenly spread across the entire room. The oscillation can be controlled with one button on the remote.

The Dyson AM08

The air is pushed through the angular opening, which then draws in the surrounding air. The fan will oscillate at 70º and can also be controlled by the remote.

The winner is – The AM07

It is really important that the fan you choose has the ability to cool the air in the whole room you need it too. You should no longer have a freezing jet of cold air while the rest of the room is still warm.

The Dyson AM07

The oscillation feature will spread cool air around a living room or dining room effectively but the design doesn’t allow you to focus the airflow in a particular area.

The Dyson AM08

As well as the oscillation, you can adjust the height of the pole from 1.1m to 1.4m. You are also able to tilt the head backward and forwards for more direct airflow. Between the three features, you have a lot more control of the airflow spread.

The winner is- The AM008
