I agree with Darryl.
Besides, how much more quiet a blower than the BR600 does anyone really need? That's why I keep mine around- for places my 570 might be just a bit too loud.
Just because a blower doesn't hurt your ears doesn't mean it's not doing permanent damage to them. Some sounds that cause damage to your hearing you simply can't hear because they are out of our range.
