Compared to the wired clippers I already own this is very quiet. The clippers are nice and sharp and the charge lasted for 2 haircuts today with still over 60% battery left. I am finding the lightweight and no power cord dangling makes it so much easier to manoeuvre and use. Charging station included and some different sized combs for shorter or longer hair. I am not a professional hairdresser but had no complaints regarding how the haircuts turned out. I think these clippers are great value, less than the price of a cut n blow dry and have already paid for themselves! Meant to say there is a cloak in below the packing in the box ...use it, the hair just slides off it and won't stick to your clothes just the same as at the proper hairdressers. Very impressed.
