They say that price has nothing to do with performance and quality but we beg to differ when it comes to the three amazing devices we are about to discuss for you today. We are of course talking about the three most expensive and simultaneously the best performing electric shavers out there in the market. While we agree that you shouldn’t only have to depend on price points to make your decision (as most people would prefer a more affordable option), what sets these devices apart is in fact their exclusivity and premium features which are quite obviously not for everyone.
The pricier the device, the more features and specs you can expect from them and why shouldn’t you invest in a truly great shaver which can handle your beard just like any professional in a salon would. If you think about it, this device is helping you save money as it’s a one-time purchase whereas going to the barber is a weekly chore! So, now without further ado, let’s dig into these three products and their specifications so we can help you pick your best fit!
Most Expensive Electric Shaver
Braun Series 9 9290cc:
The first on our list is the Braun 9290 which comes from the company’s latest Series 9 and has a lot of features and treats up its sleeves. It works best for users with really sensitive skin as it has the gentlest shave possible. It comes with two unique and specialized trimmers which are specifically designed to capture even the tiniest of hair on the face. This is part due to the impressive titanium coated blades it comes fitted with that lend it this accuracy.
The Syncro Sonic technology which is a Braun patented one works by guiding and aligning hair with nearly 10 000 micro vibrations per minute. This enables the device to capture more hair with each swipe thus limiting the number of times you need to expose your skin to blades.
Equipped with a unique smart sensor, the 9290 can sense when the hair growth is thicker and automatically readjusts the motor power accordingly. This makes this device perfect for all hair types, textures and lengths.
Panasonic Arc 5:
Next we have the Panasonic Arc 5 which is also a very high end product and its features make it worth the while! With both wet and dry functionality, this handy shaver can be used as you desire whether in the shower or at the sink. The main motive is to lend the user a pain free and comfortable shaving experience and that is expected at the price this product is at. The dual functionality also means that cleaning up after yourself will be breeze as you just drain the entire gunk out with water, air dry the machine and you are done. Although at the price this product is at we expect an automatic cleaning station.
The 5 super sharp blades are also great as they are made of Nano technology and are precision honed to a 30 degree angle which allows them to cut cleanly without any possible tugging or pulling at the hair. They also mirror the contours of the face very closely and therefore there is no resistance to the blades as they glide across easily. This is aided along by the multi flexing heads which pivot along different directions thus aligning themselves with your facial contours with precision.
This device also has unique sensors that let it know when to increase or decrease the intensity. The linear motor is a pretty heavy duty machinery which provides approximately 14 000 cuts per minute, which is insane! There is also no lag even if the battery is at its lower stages. The LCD display indicates the battery percentage and also alerts the user when the device needs to be charged.
Philips Series 9000 Prestige Edition:
If you thought the devices we reviewed up till now were high end and premium then you are going to be surprised by the Phillips 9000 which is from the brand’s Prestige Edition and is our most expensive product yet!
It comes with some really cool shavers which work pretty well when it comes to shaving prowess and we felt like they’re not too specialized or different. They perform the same job and its more like having identical shavers so you don’t have to buy new ones.
Unlike its competition, this device comes with a premium beard styler which is essentially a real specialized comb that is best for grooming your hair as you shave. You also get three different speed settings which function at a high speed, a low speed and a medium one so that you can personalize your shaving experience as you go along. The vibrations and sound changes along with the speed settings but it’s more of a cool feature than a let-down.
The device also comes with the coolest charging pad which works with wireless technology so all you have to do is place the shaver onto the pad and it will charge no buttons or wires attached! Now this is the kind of feature we are looking for at this price point! That’s not all however as there is also a cool cleansing brush that can be used to prep your face for that shave so there is no chance of irritation or discomfort.
