New Blades for Air Breeze?

I'm familiar with the aftermarket blades that improve noise on the Air X.

Will these blades make a substantial difference on the Air Breeze?

Anyone actually change the blades on their Air Breeze?

I cannot tell if mine is noisier than most or if I'm more sensitive to the noise. I'd love to knock down the noise further.

Re: New Blades for Air Breeze?

Have you lightly sanded 10"- 12" of the end of each blade trailing edge. It dose make a difference. after time the trailing edge gets a bit tatty.

Ours made a slight whistling noise when new......I took 400 grit to the trailing edge of each blade to soften the sharp parts. No whistling now, just a whooshing of sorts.
