Edge Cleaning & Furniture Clearance

The Dyson Cinetic Big Ball excels at both edge cleaning and furniture clearance. Its powerful suction extends all the way to the very edge and front of the brush head. Besides being able to clean right up to the wall, the Big Ball also does a good job getting under furniture. With just four inches of clearance, you can get the entire wand under a couch.

Carpet Cleaning

We set out 100 grams of sifted dirt and dust for the Dyson Big Ball to pick up. After running the Big Ball over our short-pile carpet, we were a little disappointed at the results. It picked up just 31.1% of the testing dirt. We've tested vacuums in its price range that have gotten 50% of the dirt.

The Big Ball's rankings greatly improved when we switched over to the deep-pile carpet. In one pass, it picked up 19.45% of the dirt, which is the highest amount we've seen from an air-driven brush head.

Sound

The Dyson Big Ball is rather loud vacuum. When it's running with the brush head going, our instruments picked up 74.5 dBA. That's almost as loud as a lawnmower.
