Shaver Review: The Best Electric Shaver

To create this page, I have looked at and compared numerous razors more closely, worked out their strengths and weaknesses, and also tried some models myself.
My findings and results from my extensive razor test, I would like to present you with the five best razors from my point of view – and of course the question:

“Which Shaver is the best?”

To cut a long story short:

It´the Braun Series 9 9290cc

Braun-Series-9-9290cc electric shaver

After the Braun Series 9 9090cc already has been ahead of the competition in the past year, the 9290cc is its successor with an even more improved equipment.

The trimmer now has a particularly durable titanium alloy, the 5 shaving elements adapt to each face´s contours in 10-D.

So it does not just shave a bit better and is even more skin-friendly than the predecessor,but it is even a little cheaper than the 9090cc.

This can only lead to one conclusion:
The Braun Series 9 9290cc razor is the best razor in 2017.

Philips S9721 / 31 Series 9000 Wet & Dry Shaver

philips 9000 Wet & Dry Shaver

The Philips S9721 / 84 Series 9000 is a wet and dry shaver in one device.
In the Philips shaver test, it was able to inspire me with innovative technology and became the winner in the “New Technology” department.

For the victory over the whole field of shavers, it was not quite enough, as the device is a whole lot more expensive than the Braun Series 9 9090cc.

The head of the Philips S9721 / 84 Series 9000 wet & dry shaver is packed with
state-of-the-art and specially developed technology.
The blades are precision blades in a special V-Track shape, which, according to the manufacturer Philips, bring the hair into the optimum cutting position and thus ensure
an excellent shaving result.

Thanks to the 8-Direction DynamicFlexHeads, the heads can move in 8 directions and thereby
perfectly matches the contours of angular men´s faces,too  and provides a great result and up to
20% more captured stubbles – according to Philips.
And they are right, as my experience with the S9721 / 84 Series 9000 from Philips have shown.

Also the battery of the Philips S9721 / 84 Series 9000 could convince me.
It offers up to 50 minutes of cordless shaving. If the built-in battery is empty, it must be recharged for only 60 minutes.
And if you are in a hurry, a quick charge for a shave can be done in just three minutes.

Another remarkable fact of the Philips S9721 / 84 Series 9000 is that it can also be used under
the shower and with foam, so it is a wet shavers as well as a dry shaver.
After use, the cleaning system SmartClean PRO is cleaned with the included cleaning
cartridge comes into play to quickly and comfortably take care of the shaver, so that it is again as new and best equipped for the next morning use.

The Price / Performance Winner:
Philips Norelco 7500

Philips 7500

This device is simply convincing, and that is not only because of the low price. The S7500´s equipment are not quite as good as the test winner, but it does not need to hide – especially not for the called price.

With the 5-Direction DynamicFlex heads, the head can be adjusted in up to 5 directions of the shape of the face, and thereby provides really good shaving results.

Not least because of the GentlePrecision shaver heads, which together with the micro-pellet coating also help to protect the skin and thus provide fewer red and burning spots, especially for men with slightly deeper skin. “Yo have to suffer to be beautyful” is not quite right in regards of the Philips Norelco 7500, because it provides a great shaving experience at a small price.

What I found impressing for this price segment was, that there is a cleaning station included in the offer I mention below, beacause there are other offers out there for the S7520, that do not include the cleaning station at all.

Braun Series 7 799cc-7 Wet & Dry Shaver

Braun Series 7 799cc-7 Wet & Dry Shaver

The Braun Series 7 799cc-7 electric razor Wet & Dry has also got its place in the Top 5 ranking.
“The best razors”. Because this device also convinced me in the razor test. For the test victory and the title “Best razor”, it was not quite enough, but not at least becaus its price and performance it deserves a placement among the best five razors.

The Braun Series 7 799cc-7 Electric razor Wet & Dry has no triangular shaving head, like many
new-fashioned devices, it comes in the classic shape.
Thanks to ActiveLift and OptiFoil – a technique which, according to the manufacturer, raises flat-topped hair in problem areas such as the neck and thus even can detect hair with a length of 0.05 mm – the Braun razor shows a good shaving performance, so it is a good all-round razor.

The scope of delivery is also extremely gratifying for the lower price compared to the test winner.
Besides the razor with its pull-out beard trimmer, there is also a Clean & Renew cleaning station and a cleaning cartridge included in the set.

If you do not mind the cleaning stations – the Braun Series 7 799cc-7 can also be cleaned easily under running water thanks to its 100% water-resistant construction.
This would save you the cleaning cartridges.

Panasonic Multi-Flex ES-LA63-S

Panasonic Multi-Flex ES-LA63-S Electric Shaver

Last but not least the ES-LA63-S from Panasonic was able to position itself in the Top 5 of the best electric razors. This device is a dry and wet shaver in one device and is priced at Amazon at around $110.

Shaving performance, equipment and scope of delivery could not quite as convincing as with the other razors mentioned above.
Nevertheless, the Panasonic ES-LA63-S can be used wet and dry and has a pop-up beard trimmer for detailing sideburns and mustaches.
So it is an all-round good razor – for a fair price.

Its  multi-flex pivoting head glides quite smoothly over the skin and if someone is bald as me, it can be comfortably used for this purpose as well.

What I find quite astonishing is, that even for its low price, this device has a LED display to check power status, charge indicator and cleaning/replacement reminders for its blades.
