In a world where beards are taking over in fashion and trends, there seems to be less and less space for electric razors. To be able to overcome this stubborn wall, a razor today must be able to demonstrate its value and exploit the now essential tech component. This Braun knows it well and for this reason it has presented the new one to the public Braun Series 9 Pro, and this is his review.
Over the years, Braun has accustomed us to a series of hard-to-beat Prime-quality tech devices and with this Series 9 Pro, the company is once again trying to raise the bar. THE electric razors of the Braun family I have always been synonymous with quality and efficiency and we thought it was impossible to do even better, we were wrong!
Our review of the new Braun Series 9 Pro
The Braun Series 9 Pro arrives on the occasion of the 100 years of Braun who, undeterred, wants to offer customers the best of the best in terms of shaving. But let’s find out more!
The Braun Series 9 Pro is the electric shaver designed to deal with different types of hair. The razor consists of a single chromed plastic body with a removable head. The front features the power button, one LCD screen which indicates the remaining charge and the Precise Shave button (which we will analyze later). Above it is a knurled area where the thumb rests when shaving to ensure a better grip. For the same reason, the back of the razor is made up of a layer of soft rubber which guarantees a exceptional grip without any risk of slipping. Here we also find a precision trimmer that can be activated via a button that slides it up, useful for finishing the beard. Below the razor we find the entrance to recharge the battery also via the stand.
The materials of construction they are really excellent and from the first opening we have the feeling of having a high quality device. But honestly, we didn’t expect anything less from Braun.
Included in the package, of the basic version, we find the battery charging cable, a stand / charger and the practical fabric bag to take the razor on the road with us.
The ProHead head it is undoubtedly the most interesting part of the razor. We are facing well 5 cutting elements in a single head that adapts perfectly to the face. The laminae OptiFoil I’m 0.058mm thin and have 899 holes. The thin foil pushes the skin away when the hair is cut, allowing greater access to the hair for an even more effective and tear-free shave. Furthermore, the Sonica technology, which the razor is equipped with, consists of 10,000 small movements per minute of the razor head. These vibrations help the hairs enter holes with ease; the more vibrations there are, the more hairs will be captured.
the floating blades and the head, rotate back and forth, automatically adapting to the contours of the face for greater adherence and delicacy. Here it comes into play the Close Shave button mentioned in the previous paragraph. If necessary, the button locks the shaver head, allowing you to easily catch difficult hairs, for greater precision and control. These are also the watchwords of the Precision trimmer that we find in the back of the razor. We are facing a real “game changer” of shaving that is not limited to the classic daily shave. With the trimmer, a world of possibilities opens up to get the best out of our style.
To support this we have a Li-Ion battery that guarantees 60 minutes of use and includes a 5 minute quick charge option. Not only that, some versions of the Braun Series 9 Pro feature the first PowerCase enclosure charging station in the world for truly exceptional autonomy. Some models are also supplied with the station SmartCare Braun 5 in 1 for better product maintenance. This base independently cleans the razor, recharges it, sanitizes it, lubricates it and finally dries it.
Our test of the Braun Series 9 Pro
We have been testing the new Braun Series 9 Pro shaver for about three weeks during which we have exploited every single potential. Let’s start immediately by saying that from the first opening we were amazed by the build quality, a real tech jewel at your fingertips that gives back the sensations of a at the first touch prim productAnd. As proof of this, the Braun Series 9 Pro’s shave is nothing short of exceptional, suitable for any hair length. It doesn’t matter whether you shaved the day before or waited months (as in our case), shaving takes place in a precise but delicate without plucking longer hairs. The head with its 5 types of blades does its job very well and with very few passes.
The precise shave button it helps in those points where the hairs are particularly demanding or where you want even more precision. Just make a small switch and the cartridge locks up giving you full control. Particularly appreciated by those who are writing this review is the Braun Series 9 Pro precision trimmer. In addition to a great deal of design and technique, we appreciated the speed with which we can switch from the main razor to the Trimmer so as to perfect our style in no time. And it is precisely there speed one of the strengths of this razor; it will take you very little time to fix your beard and start the day with the right charge.
Speaking of charging, we cannot fail to mention the large battery capacity. During our test we took the razor on the road with us but deliberately left the charger at home. Know that in about 10 days of constant use there was never a need to recharge the device. The icing on the cake is total impermeability of the Braun Series 9 Pro, quality that will allow you to use it with a foam or a shaving gel or even in the shower.
L’only flaw that we must point out is perhaps theexcessive noise. Although we have seen that vibration is part of the technology useful for shaving better, in the long run the noise can become annoying especially when the razor is used in the areas of the face near the ears. Fortunately, the razor is so fast and effective that it reduces these times.
