Some quiet vacuum cleaners are the Roomba 760, the Miele S121 Olympus, the Electrolux Ultra Silencer and the Numatic Henry Vacuum Cleaner. Some quieter vacuum cleaners, by companies such as Bosch and Dyson, are made exclusively for European markets.
Robotic vacuum cleaners are the quietest type of vacuum cleaners. Some brands that produce quiet robotic vacuum cleaners are Roomba, LG, Dyson and Neato. The LG Hom-Bot Square LrV790R and the Roomba 760 are two quiet robotic vacuums recommended by Consumer Reports
Between canister vacuums and upright vacuums, canister vacuum cleaners tend to be quieter. This is because the build of an upright vacuum cleaner necessitates its motor to be positioned higher from the ground, allowing its sound to travel for greater distances before encountering obstacles. Some examples of quiet canister vacuums are: the Electrolux Ultra Silencer, the Electrolux Ultra Silencer Deep Clean, the Miele S121 Olympus, the Numatic Henry Vacuum Cleaner, the Electrolux Sanitaire Quiet Clean and the LG Kompressor LcV900B. An example of a quiet upright vacuum cleaner is the Miele S 7210 Twist.
Battery operated vacuum cleaners tend to be even quieter, as they have lower power consumption and smaller motors. The Eureka Easy Clean 71B is a quiet hand vacuum that does well on bare floors.
As there is a greater market for quiet vacuum cleaners in Europe compared to the United States, companies such as Bosch and Dyson sometimes release low-sound models exclusively in European markets. Some examples of these exclusively European quiet vacuum cleaners are the Dyson DC49 and the Bosch GS50 Power Silence.
