Braun Series 9 Review: 9390cc Electric Shaver

What do the words “German engineering” bring to mind? Audi, BMW, Volkswagen… or perhaps it’s precision, performance and quality.

The latter are all characteristics of the German manufactured and designed Series 9 9390CC, Braun’s most comfortable, most efficient electric shaver. 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.

That’s a bold statement, but this is no ordinary electric shaver, it’s Braun’s top of the range model boasting rave reviews from customers all over the world, and tops our 2020 “Best of” list of men’s shavers.

What Makes The Series 9 9390cc So Great?

Well, here’s just a handful of reasons…

  • Provides extremely efficient and comfortable shaves.
  • SynchroSonic technology mows down 3-day beards with ease.
  • Over 40,000 cross-cut blade movements per minute.
  • Removes more facial hair in one stroke than any other shaver.

Braun Series 9 9390cc Electric Shaver Full features Overview

Cuts Facial Hair at Blazing Speeds

Most electric shavers use an ordinary motor to move the blades rapidly back and forth. But the Series 9 9390cc features Braun’s patented SynchroSonic technology. Two motors, operating simultaneously at different frequencies, produce sonic micro-vibrations that cause the blades to make over 40,000 cross-cutting movements per minute. The result is an incredibly close, quick shave. No other electric shaver removes more hair in a single pass.

Flexible and Powerful

Even three-day beards are no match for the 9390cc electric shaver. Flexible cutting elements are mounted on a pivoting head, and Braun’s MicroMotion and MacroMotion technologies allow for maximum skin contact, while reducing skin pressure.

The shaver adapts to the unique contours of your face, cutting even thick stubble while minimizing irritation and any chance of shaving rash.

Specialized Cutting Elements

Facial hair grows in whorls; it grows straight, up, down, left, right, protrudes and lays flat. It’s no wonder that men develop razor burn! Using an ordinary razor (whose blades cut only one way) can lead to nicks, redness, bumps and skin irritation.

The Braun 9390cc electric shaver features specialized cutting elements – the Direct and Cut Trimmer aligns hair that grows in different directions, cutting each hair simultaneously; the HyperLift and Cut Trimmer lifts and cuts hairs which lay flat (on tricky areas like the neck and chin).

Close Shaves, Precisely Groomed Beards

Every face is unique – from the underlying bone structure which gives your face its shape, to the thickness of the skin, no two faces are exactly alike. Braun recognizes this fact, and incorporated a MultiHeadLock feature in the 9390cc, allowing the shaver to be adjusted to five different angles. The result is the most precise shave possible, tailored to your own face.

If you prefer a short beard, simply slide the integrated precision trimmer out of the back of the shaver. It’s easy on skin, and allows you to accurately shape your sideburns and maintain your beard.

Comfortable, Convenient and Travels Well

I love the design of the Braun 9390cc shaver. It doesn’t just look great – it’s ergonomically shaped and fits perfectly in my hand. I also appreciate the extra details Braun incorporated, like the rubberized grip. When I’m getting ready in the morning, my hands aren’t always dry, and the grippy coating on the shaver means I won’t risk dropping it on the counter.

Like most modern electric shavers, the Series 9 is powered by advanced lithium-ion battery technology. You can get fifty minutes of runtime – that’s over two weeks of daily shaves – on a single, 60-minute charge, and the battery has no “memory effect”, preventing premature failure. Though the battery can be replenished using the included Clean and Charge Station, you can also use a mains power adapter, making it possible to travel with the shaver. Keep it safe on the road with the included leather carrying case.

Shave Wet or Dry

Dry shaving is quick and convenient. High-quality models like the Braun Series 9 make it a comfortable experience – but if you’d rather shave wet (using gel or foam), you can – the waterproof body of the 9390cc lets you use it either way. You can even shave in the shower, and clean the unit under running water.

Cleans and Charges at the Same Time

Only Braun shavers include the patented, five-action, alcohol-based Clean and Charge Station. It automatically selects a cleaning program, hygienically cleans and dries your shaver, lubricates it so it’s always running smoothly, and recharges the battery.

The Braun Series 9 9390cc is a top-notch electric shaver. It isn’t cheap – but the precision, build quality, and performance are well worth the price of admission if you can afford a shaver of this caliber. It’s a quick, precise and comfortable shaver that delivers excellent results. It’s impossible to be disappointed with such an amazingly well built product and would make an ideal Christmas or Father’s Day gift.

Note: Braun recently updated their Series 9 range to models 9296cc, 9290cc, 9240s. These new models are identical to the older Braun Series 9 9095cc, 9090cc, 9050cc, and 9040s shavers, with the exception of a new Titanium coated trimmer and nicer packaging. Braun have kept all the original design, but introduced some fancy marketing.
