Comparing the Dyson AM11 vs TP02 in Detail
When it comes to the design, Dyson made sure that all their air purifier fans including the AM11 and TP02 do not have any visible fast-spinning blades that could cause injuries or harm. The bladeless design is unique to design and is consistent with all their fan lineups.
The technology that made it possible for Dyson fans to appear bladeless is the Air Multiplier technology proudly developed by the brand itself. The Air Multiplier technology powers both the AM11 and TP02 smoothly circulating purified air across the room. The shape and build of the AM11 and TP02 are very similar as well–tall, narrow, and oblong-shaped amp. They do not have protective grills, typically seen on traditional fans with fast-spinning blades, so it’s easier for you to clean the units.
The AM11 and TP02 have two functions: they purify all year round and they double as a fan on hot days. These machines purify the air in your environment, equipped with high-quality HEPA filters. They are both capable of capturing 99.97% of ultrafine particles including pollen, bacteria, dust, pet dander, and other air pollutants in the air. They also filter bad odors, gases, toxins, smoke, and VOCs (Volatile Organic Compound). The AM11 is fitted with 360 Vacuum-sealed HEPA filter with Active Carbon while the TP02 has 360 Glass HEPA filter with Active Carbon.
The AM11 and TP02 as fans both have 10 airflow settings. The fan is powerful and runs very quietly.
The TP02 is more advanced than the AM11. The TP02 is WiFi-enabled and can be controlled through the Dyson Link App. All you have to do is connect your device to your home WiFi, then download the app on your mobile phone. After that, you can now easily control the device through your mobile phone. The app also lets you see real-time air quality reports. The WiFi feature of the TP02 also allows you to voice command the unit with the help of Amazon Alexa. However, the AM11 has a much greater oscillation. It can oscillate 360 degrees compared to TP02’s limited oscillation of 180 degrees.
Both the AM11 and TP02 come with a remote control accessory which allows you to adjust the settings of your unit without physically reaching for it. And unlike other Dyson air purifiers, they do not come in with extra filters. Take note that both units need replacement filters at least once a year. If you use your air purifier continuously, the filters could last up to 6 months.
The AM11 and TP02 both have Night mode options, where the device dims its display and runs at the quietest setting there is. They also have Auto mode, which allows the unit to automatically adjust the airflow, check the quality of air, and turn the device on or off.
Talking about the price of these devices, the AM11 is more affordable than the TP02 because it has fewer features.

The AM11 and TP02 are premium air purifiers from Dyson. It is powered by Air Multiplier technology and they are ideal for people suffering from asthma and allergies because they filter air pollutants, improving air quality. They are also great for homes with kids and pets because their blades are hidden making them relatively kid and pet safe. In terms of design, the AM11 and TP02 are almost similar with slight differences in height and in weight.
Before buying an AM11 or a TP02, here are the things that you should consider:
- The very first thing that you should consider before getting an AM11 or a TP02 is your budget. If you are still searching for the right air purifier for you that costs less money, check other brands. There are a lot of alternatives in the market, however, if you’ve already decided to get a Dyson fan and you are on a tight budget, get the AM11. It’s cheaper than the TP02 and it does a great job in improving air quality.
- If you want to have the WiFi feature, the TP02 is for you. It is WiFi-enabled and can be connected to the Dyson Link App for air quality reports and the app also serves as the remote control.
- If an air purifier that can swing around the entire room is important for you, pick the AM11. It has an oscillation of 360 degrees compared to TP02’s 180 degrees.
- Filters have to be replaced for both AM11 and TP02. The filters that come with the units last depending on how much you use the device. Replacement filters are available on Amazon and in Dyson.
- If you want a simple air purifier, pick the AM11 since it does not have many confusing features like setting up the WiFi and connecting the device to Alexa.
The Dyson AM11 and TP02 are both very great air purifiers. They both have impressive designs and they are a 2-in-1 device that delivers outstanding performance. However, I personally won’t get a Dyson fan myself because I find them very expensive and I think there are a lot of inexpensive alternatives in the market that would work and perform just like Dyson.
If you are deciding to buy a Dyson fan, I would highly recommend the TP02 because if you are to buy an expensive air purifier, might as well get the one with more features. Although it only has an oscillation of 180 degrees, the WiFi feature can do a lot and that feature makes the Dyson TP02 more powerful than the Dyson AM11.
