Default HV blow dryer - and noise

I am shocked at the noise that the HV blow dryers make at the groomers - I told DH that it sounds like jet engines on a plane about to take off. I realize that it has to make some noise, after all it's a machine. My blow dryer at home makes noise too for the same reason - both are creating wind.

I want to buy an HV dryer for home and I'm looking for the least noisy. I also need variable speeds. I think the Chris Christensen's Kool Pup is supposed be to the most quiet. I have a minipoo.

I'm also wondering if any one has figured out a way to muffle that noise. Can you cover the motor with towels or foam while leaving an opening for the air flow? I was thinking if the hose was long enough I could put the motor in another room but then I realized that the longer hose would require more pressure to blow air farther which would equate to more noise so that's probably not an option.

I don't think ear plugs and cotton/shrug over Babykins ears is enough to put a dent in that noise.

I have a CC Kool Dry and while it is noisy I don't find it all that horrible. I do put cotton balls in the dogs' ears and put the base as far away from the table as I can. The hose that comes with it is fairly long.

My Happy Hoodie doubles as a snood for when Noelle is eating. It does block a lot of the noise from the drier.

Yes, I will be buying one. She wears one at the groomers - don't dogs look silly/cute wearing them?

That's a good idea - I didn't think of that. If you use it for meal time, do you own a few so you can wash them?

A great deal of the noise a HV dryer makes is from the forced air blowing against the dog. I've heard of groomers putting the dryer is a cabinet that has just a hole for the hose to come out and they said it was mostly a waste of money as a lot of the sound was from the air pressure against something.
The less powerful the force of air the less loud

YES! This. Is so true. I LOVE LOVE my K9-II for its POWER. And it's loud. Specifically when it's blowing against the skin. The sound of the motor isn't what bothers the dogs at all. For me, the power is not negotiable - I simply couldn't imagine not having a dryer of this quality. But I do use a happy hoodie and it makes a huge difference.
