Miele and Dyson are probably the most famous vacuum cleaner brand. Whether its hairs on the floor or the general dust cleaning, these two vacuums will always come through for you. We have reviewed and talked about these two products a lot of times, written reviews of their products but it still might be an issue deciding on which to choose between these two vacuums. In this long and detailed article, we have done an in-depth comparison of these two vacuums, highlighting their main imminent features, what makes them unique, pros, cons and at the end, we will give a verdict on which vacuum we think is best for you. However, just by reading through, you will be able to decide which vacuum is best.


In this article, we decided to put more emphasis on the Dyson vacuum. Dyson involves engineering experts from all over the globe to deliver these top-class vacuums. However, their research and development centre is located in the United Kingdom. Most of their vacuums are manufactured in Malaysia since 2002. The idea behind the name Dyson from the company’s founder, Sir James Dyson who came up with this great idea in 1991.

On the other hand, Miele tends to be an older company and they manufacture a better part of their vacuum cleaners. Miele doesn’t just specialize in the manufacture of vacuum cleaners but they have also ventured in the manufacture of other home appliances such as hand dryers and dishwashers. Both companies have brought a lot of innovations to the world of appliances and they both deserve credit.

Dyson was recognized for bringing the first-ever bagless vacuum cleaner while Miele was the inventor of the first-ever HEPA certified vacuum cleaner.


Different vacuum cleaners are made using different technologies and techniques, with each company bringing to the table what they think will give them the best results. The same has happened between these two companies; Miele and Dyson. They have made these two brands of vacuum cleaners to bring out different features and functionalities although they all tend to serve the same purpose. This will, therefore, give us points of comparison. Here are some of the features that we have highlighted in this article.

  • Miele vs Dyson vacuum technology
  • Miele and Dyson vacuum range
  • Company warranty
  • Comparison of uprights
  • Filtration capabilities and much more


Both companies have applied excellent and sophisticated technologies into their brands to ensure there is perfect filtration and that the results are exceptional. Their systems have been sealed and made airtight. This is an important feature that creates the biggest difference between these two brands and the other cheap brands in the market. These systems make sure that whatever finds its way into the vacuum goes into the dustpan and not back to the floor.

Let’s have a look at the Miele technology. In general terms, Miele vacuums use a bag for purposes of sucked dust collection. However, the bag will get used up with time which means that you need to do a time to time replacement of the filter and the bag, which means maintaining a Miele could be quite expensive. Some people have it that maintaining a Miele is easier and safer due to the easy cleaning and removing the dust bag. The dust bag is always sealed before removal which means you’re safe from any kind of allergies that might result from the dust. Some people also say that a Miele doesn’t require frequent cleaning compared to the Dyson.

On the other hand, the Dyson has neither a bag nor a filter. This doesn’t mean that it could be a faulty vacuum. It’s way efficient than the Miele.


The noise reduction feature heavily depends on the technology used in the making. According to multiple independent tests, it has been observed that a Miele is generally quieter than a Dyson. This is due to the Miele silencer technology that comes in terms of a motor (noise optimized) and an integrated sound insulator that provides quiet experience while vacuuming.

So which technology do you think is the best? It’s up to you to decide!


Both brands have vacuum cleaners with upright capabilities. The two brands provide ample suction and a powerful brush roll to dust and carpets and get rid of any hairs, whether human or pet hair from your mats and carpets. They are both heavy-duty vacuum cleaners.

For the upright Miele vacuums, they come in the form of bagged vacuums. They have sealed systems that seal the dirtbag to ensure the utmost hygiene.

However, these allergens could be pollutants and potential allergens.

The Dyson vacuums don’t have power options which means they run full speed all through
