Braun Series 9 9390cc Latest Generation Electric Shaver, Clean&Charge Station, Leather Case, Silver
About this deal
This was another letdown in this area compared to other electric shavers and even other Braun models. I think it’s worth purchasing if you’re not happy with a rotary and you think you’d be better off with a foil shaver like the Braun Series 9. Do use very light pressure and avoid unnecessary passes, even if that means you won’t get a very close shave. If you can get a great deal on a Pro model that’s even better, if not, the 93xx will shave almost exactly the same.
I just found your site while looking for some info on trouble-shooting an issue and thought I’d give it a shot. In the unlocked position, the shaving head can swivel freely, while sliding it down will lock the head in one of the 5 pre-determined positions. The PRO cleaning system has the THREE different cleaning programs, while the “non-pro” system only has ONE cleaning program. Shaving longer facial hair is yet another strong point for most Braun electric shavers, being ahead of other foil razors from the competition.These new shavers were initially only available in several European countries and it wasn’t clear if or when they will be officially launched in the USA as well. I think the choice should be between the Series 7 and the cheaper Series 3 (3020s), so consider your budget as well. That’s the case with all the other 93xx models, so none of them will work while charging as a safety precaution. If however you will be cleaning the shaver manually with soap, it’s recommended to apply some light machine oil (like clipper oil) as the soap will remove any form of lubrication. The very first time I shaved with a Series 9 (one of the older models) I was particularly impressed by how gentle and forgiving the shaver was.
Sleek, stylish, impeccably designed – and of course, capable of delivering an outstanding shave every time – the Series 9 is the World’s Best Electric Shaver . In fact, you only need the shaver to run a few seconds before it triggers a cleaning session when you drop it in the station, whether you actually shaved with it or not. While it’s great to hear about my experience, others may have a similar experience while others may have a completely different experience, which is why it really helps to report any common experience (good or bad) from others.I have a method i use, but don’t know yet which aspect of it causes the station to pick the light cleaning. I only use the brush if for some reason I can’t rinse the shaver or I must pack the shaver and don’t have the time to allow it to dry.
The cleaning station does seem like the best solution for cleaning, and if like me you get some residue from the solution left inside the cassette after using it a good few times, it can easily be cleaned off with a small damp cloth. The Series 9 should suit your shaving routine perfectly, it’s a very effective shaver even when used less often. This is usually the case with all-electric shavers for me personally and not just with the 9390cc/ 9385cc. The results were excellent, especially on the cheeks where it just mows through the hairs with ease.Even if other razors like Panasonic’s Arc 5 are objectively better at getting a close shave, they are more aggressive and harsh, especially when used dry, so in my case I was actually getting a slightly closer shave with the 9385cc on my neck. The 92S (left) and 92M (right) cassettes are the same except for the glossy and matte treatments respectively.
