I like that they are a great fit for our v8 animal. Has brought back some of the lost suction we had. The pre filters do have to be placed just right to fit perfectly. Something you have to really play with a couple times or you may have to tape it down. My vacuum still a faint odor to it, but I think after a thorough cleaning of the canister we should be working like new! This is a great set to buy to have backups for when you need them. I recommend for the convenience, but I hope they fix the fit issue.
We have a Dyson V8 Animal something-or-other. It's by far the best vacuum cleaner we've ever owned. We've had it for a couple years, but unfortunately the last few months, it's been less and less effective. We cleaned the filters as described on the Dyson website, and although they looked clean, our vacuum wouldn't pick up well, and it did that "pulse" thing they do when they're full even when it wasn't full. It really sucked. Or, I guess it *didn't* suck, and that was the problem.
Since a new vacuum is somewhere around $500, we decided to try a set of new filters, hoping to get a few more months out of it.
Wow. It works very well again. It has suction, doesn't "pulse", and picks up like it did when new. Basically, our vacuum sucks again. Thank goodness!
tl;dr -- Even though our old filters appeared clean, they weren't. These new filters made our vacuum like new.
They are filters. They filter things. They don’t filter coffee very well, and when I tried to attach it to the oil filter port on my truck, it basically just sprayed oil everywhere, that was a big mess. It also doesn’t really filter noise, I put it over my ear, but my wife just kept yelling at me, no real noise reduction there. But it seems to filter dust pretty good with a vacuum, so I have that going for me.
I knew that I had to clean my filter in my Dyson - but the issue was once I did it took over a day for it to dry - and you really had to squeeze out all the dirt under running water for a while to make sure that it got clean. So I bought these extra filters and they work great - made a difference in the cleaning ability of the Dyson - and now that I have so many I can make sure that I always have a clean on in the vacuum.
These came in very fast, great packaging, and look and feel identical to the original filter that comes with the Dyson Handheld. The quantity for number received was great, and these will last for many days to come
This filter fits tight & snug into my Dyson handheld and does NOT fall out even when I turn the vac upside down!!! This is important as I've had to try a few other brands on Amazon before I found this one! Couldn't tell the difference between this filter and the one that original came with my Dyson. Very happy with my purchase and will be buying again when I run out of my pack of 4 filters.
I could tell a huge difference with these filters compared to the ones I had on my Dyson, the suction power is so much better with these. They also seem to work just as well keeping dust and particles out of the air. I would buy these again.
