Here I compare two of the best rated shavers based on overall performance.
If you’re looking for two of the top models, check out this comparison review of the Braun Series 7 and the 5 bladed Panasonic ES LV models. This is definitely the best head to head review I’ve done.
5 Blades vs. 4
Here I compare the Panasonic ES LV models to the LA models. Essentially we’re trying to find out if 5 blades are better than 4.
So far all the “upgraded” or advanced models do perform better than their predecessors, but this one’s a close call. If I say anything else, I’ll just spoil the review.
Foil vs. Rotary
The foil vs rotary debate has been around for a long time, and here I give my personal thoughts on it by reviewing the Braun Series 7 and the SensoTouch 3D.
I’ve always believed that it’s much more effective to analyze two specific products, rather than try and compare complete categories.
Foil vs. Foil
This comparison looks at two of the best products on the market: The Braun Series 7, and the ES LVs.
Many people have asked which shaver is the best between these two models and this comparison should help answer that question. Picking a winner is going to be tough, but I’ll try and analyze all the important information.
Power vs. Price
When new electric shavers come out, it’s always nice to figure out if they’re better than previous models.
Here I review the newer LA93 K against the older 8249 S and help you decide between power or price. That’s really what this review comes down to: should you go for more power, or stick to the older model and save some money?
Old vs. New
This review really puts the Braun Series 7 to the test by matching it up with the older Panasonic ES 8249 S.
There is a clear winner here, but it also shows that it all comes down to personal preference. It certainly reveals that there’s a wide range of electric shavers and that the high-end models might not always be the best fit for everyone.
What I’ve found after reviewing many products and talking with many users, is that a final recommendation usually comes down to budget and facial hair thickness.
For those who don’t care about the price, the higher- end models are definitely recommended. This is also true for those with thick facial hair. If you have quite a heavy beard, the more powerful units are your best bet.
Now, if you want to perhaps, “keep your expenses below $100 dollars”, there are still some good options available, particularly with Panasonic. Also, if you don’t have very thick facial hair you can get away with spending less money.
I guess those would be the most basic tips on choosing an electric shaver.
After conducting a few comparisons and getting some feedback from various people, these thoughts, although very “general”, seem to apply for most people. Obviously with shaving equipment everyone’s experience is unique, however most of the time these recommendations work well.
