We don’t usually feature shavers on Lussorian; however, that’s because we haven’t really felt there is a shaver luxurious enough and high-end enough to fit. However, with the Braun Series 9, this has changed and we are happy to report our findings in this review.
Braun claim this to be the “world’s most efficient and comfortable shaver” on their website, which is quite the claim and a claim we set about challenging in our testing. For nearly £270 (RRP £269.99), you would expect this shaver to beat other lower cost models on the market and to produce something a little special. We can confirm that it certainly does that!
One element, which sets this device apart from competitors, is Braun’s Intelligent Sonic Technology. This tech allows the shave to achieve an astonishing 10,000 micro vibrations with every stroke to help capture more hair, and the results are phenomenal. The shaver head delivers 40,000 cross-cutting actions per minute, in order to get rid of those pesky hairs and give a clean shave. In terms of flexibility, the Braun Series 9 uses a quadruple cutting action system, which means the shaver head can pivot easily into position and still achieve a competent shave.
The closeness of the shave for an electric shaver is far, far better than similar products we have tested. The overall comfort in using this device is also enhanced by this technology, as you have to apply less pressure than you would typically and hair is more easily removed. The ability to use the device wither wet or dry is also a bonus, as it allows for a truly customisable experience for each user.
Other neat features include a precision trimmer for getting the detail into the shave and for quick tidy ups. Plus, there is an LED screen to track battery – this is a really useful feature, as I cannot tell you how many times I have been caught half way through a shave with no battery. Charging time takes an hour or so for a full shave, which will give you about 50 minutes of shaving time. Or you can opt for a quick 5 min charge and this will give you just enough juice for 1 shave. Don’t forget, you also get a travel pouch with the Series 9 too. Available here at the moment for £179.99.
