About this deal

In 2019, Braun’s high-end line of electric shavers, the Series 9, was given a second mid-life facelift. I would confidently take this shaver on a holiday with a fully charged battery and leave the cord at home. Anyway, my advice would be to ignore it and simply replace the shaving head when the performance drops. With Braun shavers, I think most users (myself included) will end up using them dry anyway as they’re already good enough — unlike Panasonic for example where you’ll likely get a more comfortable shave. Do use very light pressure and avoid unnecessary passes, even if that means you won’t get a very close shave.

If however you don’t have any issues with skin irritations and razor bumps, an Arc 5 will probably get you a slightly closer shave. Safety lock – If you wish to take your shaver on your travels with you, then you can hold the on/off button for a few seconds, which will lock the shaver’s power off. The Series 8 would probably be my next pick — it costs less, but will need a bit more work for a clean shave.Your work has been super helpful for making sense of all the different models and product generations! I often have to use shaving cream or at least a pre-shave lotion when shaving with more aggressive razors (like Panasonic or Philips Norelco), but never really needed any of those with the 9385cc. In some cases, there can be differences related to accessories (for example a leather travel case instead of the common textile one) or none at all, and they simply use different model names for identical shavers sold in different parts of the world.

I also own the ES-LV65 and both are excellent shavers in my opinion, although they excel at different things. It sounds great, but it is not something that I can notice when using it, which may not mean it’s not functioning in that manner. My expectation was that the Series 9 must outperform or offer something considerably better than the Series 5 and up to make the extra money spent well worth it. But to summarize, the 7865cc is probably the one that is the easiest to get right now no matter where you live. If you haven’t already tried one, a good pre-electric lotion could help you with getting a closer shave.

It is located on the back of the shaver and you must slide it forward after pressing and holding the small locking button. I have found the s9 has a mechanism that ‘pushpulls’ the foils inward when the head is being swiveled towards the end. Again, really appreciate your information on these “new” models, the comparison with existing Series 3 is very helpful.
