We purchased the Objecto H7 Hybrid Humidifier so our writer could put it to the test. Keep reading for our full product review.
If the dry air in your home is causing itchy skin, chapped lips, or respiratory problems, a humidifier is a great way to add moisture to the air. For those looking for something more sophisticated, the Objecto H7 Hybrid Humidifier offers a stylish, sculpture-inspired design. I was curious to see if this humidifier and combined diffuser functions as well as it looks. It looks more like a sculpture or decorative vase, and I was happy to display it. So, I tested it in my home for several weeks.
The diffuser emits a pleasant scent, which is noticeable but not too powerful.
I got the all-white option. Its sleek, unobtrusive design blended in nicely with my decor. It has a tall, slender profile, about 2 1/2 feet tall, and is best suited for a flat floor surface. The manufacturer says to keep it at least 20 inches away from walls, curtains, furniture, and other objects. Other humidifiers I’ve owned in the past were bulky and a bit of an eyesore; this looked like an intentionally placed work of art.
I have a large house, so I love that the Objecto H7 is ideal for use in rooms up to 650 square feet. I've owned other models that struggle to cover the entire room area. The Objecto effectively added moisture in my open-floor living room and spacious primary bedroom—even on its lower settings.
Many real estate associations, including the National Association of Home Builders, have classified the term "Master Bedroom" as discriminatory. "Primary Bedroom" is the name now widely used among the real estate community and better reflects the purpose of the room.

The Objecto produces a visible stream of cool mist almost continuously. When the heat is on in my house, the air gets dry, which triggers my allergies. I usually kept the humidifier running throughout the night in my bedroom. The Objecto added some much-needed moisture. When I woke up in the morning, I noticed that my sinuses remained moist and less irritated.
This humidifier has four mist level settings: high, medium, low, and slow. I usually put it on low since I do not want any condensation on my house's surfaces. If the room temperature drops below 59 degrees while I am asleep, the mist can leave droplets on surfaces. I found on low or slow, and I can prevent a dew-filled bedroom. After running the humidifier continuously for up to eight hours, I didn’t see any water droplets on the floor or nearby furniture.
Although the Objecto is aesthetically attractive, I expected a more sophisticated design—especially when you consider its steep price tag. The first time I slid the humidifier across the floor to reposition it, the rubber bumpers on the unit's bottom came off. The power/mist setting button is sticky and not easy to press. It is also located on the unit's base—just two inches off the floor—so you have to bend down to operate it. I would have liked a remote control for convenience.
Frequently Asked Questions
Does the humidifier have any special features?
The Objecto H7 is a humidifier and a diffuser all-in-one. Using the built-in aromatherapy component was a breeze. You remove the aroma tray from the base, add a few drops of essential oil onto the felt pad, and reinsert it. The diffuser emits a pleasant scent, which is noticeable but not too powerful.
Is the humidifier easy to set up?
In less than ten minutes, I had the Objecto up and running. I attached the humidifier to the aroma base. Using the built-in handle for the water tank, I filled it with tap water. It was easy to place the water tank into the humidifier. I could clearly see where the parts line up. Once I covered the humidifier with the mist cone, I plugged it in and turned it on.
How long can the humidifier run for?
On low, the spacious 2.6-liter tank accommodates 22 hours of misting. On high, its runtime is reduced to about nine hours, which is still enough to last through the night. I appreciated the Objecto H7 safety feature: it shuts off automatically when the water tank is empty.
How is the noise level?
This humidifier is very quiet, but not entirely silent. I could hear water trickling through the unit and the slight whoosh of the mist, but the noise wasn’t bothersome at all. Even operating on high, I could read, nap, and watch TV without being disturbed.
How do you clean the humidifier?
The user manual only provides instructions on how to clean the aroma tray. It is washed with a soft cleanser and wiped dry before going back in the base. When the felt pads get dirty, they get replaced. Two extra felt pads are provided. Since the mist cone and water tank are removable and made of plastic, I assumed it was safe to wash them by hand with a mild detergent. The humidifier itself, which houses the electrical component, I wiped with a dry cloth.
Objecto H7 Hybrid Humidifier vs. the Competition
Although the LEVOIT LV550HH Hybrid Ultrasonic Humidifier isn’t as sleek-looking as the Objecto, it has more functions and a more affordable price tag ($119.99). This unit features a digital panel with various useful settings—including warm and cool mist options. The Levoit comes with a remote, which is a major plus. This model is ideal for even larger spaces—rooms up to 750 square feet. It also doubles as a diffuser.
If you’re looking for a more budget-friendly option, consider the Honeywell HCM-350 Germ-Free Cool Mist Humidifier, which retails for about $75. This unit is best suited for small- to medium-sized rooms. It isn’t the best looking model on the market with a somewhat bulky design—a far cry from the sleek and stylish Objecto. Aesthetics aside, however, Honeywell’s humidifier has some major selling points. It can run continuously for 24 hours. Reviewers say it circulates moisture well, and it’s straightforward to operate and clean.
Worthy of its high price.
The Objecto H7 Hybrid Humidifier is a simple-to-use humidifier with a sleek, artistic design. Despite a few flaws, I was thoroughly impressed with the humidifier’s ability to moisturize a large room. I also like the fact that it doubles as a diffuser.
