When we test robot vacuum cleaners we test the noise level for each robot in three suction modes: Quiet mode, Standard mode, and Max mode.

Our tests show, in general, that there is a big difference between the noise level in Standard mode compared to Max mode. However the noise level does not vary that much between Quiet mode and Standard mode.

According to our test, the quietest robot vacuum cleaner in Quiet mode is the Ecovacs Deebot X1 OMNI with a maximum noise level of 62.4 dB. These are the 3 quietest robot vacuum cleaners in Quiet mode:

The quietest robot vacuum cleaner in Max mode is the Ecovacs Deebot X1 OMNI, with a noise level of 69.4 dB.

In general, robot vacuum cleaners with a high suction power tend to be noisier than models with a lower suction power.

The following chart shows how the noise level is distributed in Quiet mode across the robot vacuum cleaners we have tested:

About noise emission

The noise emission for robot vacuum cleaners is measured in decibels (dB).

It varies from 55 dB to 72 dB, dependng on the model. Keep in mind that the specified noise emission level usually refers the robot’s quietest operating mode. So, it will be higher if you use a more powerful suction mode.

How does the noise emission of a robot vacuum cleaner compare to a canister vacuum cleaner?

The average noise emission for robot vacuum cleaners is 63 dB, while canister vacuum cleaners have an average noise emission of 76 dB.

The quietest robot vacuum cleaner is the Eufy RoboVac 30C with a noise emission of 55 dB. Meanwhile, the quietest canister vacuum cleaner is the Rowenta RO7649 Silence Force Cyclonic Home & Car with a noise emission of 65 dB.
