Mijia H500 Design

This Mijia H500 stands out first of all for having a aerodynamic noise reduction design. What does this mean? Xiaomi engineers have worked so that the format of this dryer allows the air outlet to be better focused, reducing the noise of the air blast itself, but also of the motor.

We have a metal body of reduced dimensions so that it is easier to carry and transport outside the home. Size including mouthpiece is 144 × 79 × 237mm. In addition, this also makes it light, it is true that perhaps the handle is not the most generous in the world, but in return we lose a few grams, which is also appreciated in this type of device in which our arm can tire if we are long time using them. For its part, the length of the power cable is 1.7 meters.

It has a button where we can select the speed (off, speed 1 or speed 2) and above it we have the temperature button with a small LED so that we know if it is cold or hot.

As accessories, it comes with a double layer magnetic suction nozzle.

What is it like to use this hair dryer?

This Xiaomi Mijia H500 offers hair care while drying it, something super important if we want to show off a shinier, softer and more beautiful mane in general. In this case, use dual water ion technology, which makes the hair hydrated and looks softer. If we compare it with the first generation of this dryer, which also used this type of technology to hydrate the hair, the moisture content has increased by more than one 26%while the brightness has risen more than one 9%.

How exactly does this technology work? It includes a condenser, which condenses the humidity in the air and atomizes it into negative water ions, which pass through two needle motors and from there go to the hair, without losing temperature.

At this point, we can also mention the glass bead thermal sensor which detects the air outlet temperature and adjusts it in real time to avoid problems that could result from excessive heating, such as damage to the product or hair.

The engine has 20,000 rpm, through seven aircraft turbine blades and a pressurized air duct. This causes the airflow velocity to reach the 20 meters per second. This way you can quickly get from the ends to the roots, drying all the hair equally and without damaging it. The rated power is 1800W.

Also, we can manually select three speeds and three air temperature settings. This dryer has a memory effect, so the next time you turn it on, it recovers the last setting you used. also has a LED indicator with two colors and a Intelligent cooling and heating temperature control.

It is not a perfect dryer, as you can already guess when you see its price. But it perfectly fulfills its function, which is to dry the hair quickly and take care of it at the same time, without the user having to spend a lot of money to bet on a model that really works.
