Improved Airflow

The diameters on those purple "Radial Root Cyclones" have been modified, which Dyson claims allows for improved airflow.

An ungraded cleaning head, too

The brushroll on the Dyson Ball Allergy draws 25 percent more power than in previous models, allowing it to agitate dirt, dust, and allergens out of carpets more effectively. The sides of the cleaning head have also been shaved down, making it easier to clean right up against baseboards without missing anything.

Removable bin

The canister in the Dyson Ball Allergy comes out at the touch of a button, then empties out through the bottom for easy cleanup.

The Dyson Ball

The Ball Allergy rides on Dyson's signature Ball for improved maneuverability, just as all of their upright vacuums have done since the days of the DC15.

A high price for high-end cleaning

The Dyson Ball Allergy retails for $499, which makes it one of the priciest upright vacuums money can buy. Be sure and read our full review to help decide whether or not it's worth the cost.
