Thought this list would be useful for people interested in purchasing a electric shaver for their head.

Anyone used the skull shaver?

I'm tempted to purchase number 3 on the list, seems most reasonable in price and shaves extremely close.

Iv got the bald eagle pro and the braun boss series 7. The skull shaver is brill, so much quicker and easier to use. It doesn't cut as close as the braun tho, what I tend to do now is blast the head with the skull shaver then give it a quick once over (or sometimes just the top of my head) with the braun if Im up early and what to make do until night

Aye, get that Haircules, it's really good value and does as good as the Braun series 7.

So the bald eagle doesn't really shave that close to skin if you need to go over it with another shaver?
I want something that shaves as close as possible I'm not too bothered about how long or how convinient it is.

I have tried

 

Braun M40 - Small foil shaver that works on two AA batteries. It's my daily shaver, I change the batteries twice a month and it shaves really well and I can bring it everywhere I want when I am on the go. Cheap and does the job!

 

Remington 4150 - Three head rotary shaver that you can charge on the main. Doesn't cut as close as a foil shaver and I feel better using the Braun M40, so I am not using this one anymore.

 

Philips PQ203 - Small rotary shaver that works on two AA batteries. This was before my car shaver to keep in my car, when I felt I had forgotten to shave a zone etc. Same as the 4150, I prefer foil shavers.

 

 

Remington R91 - The one recommended by HIS, I like it as we all started with this one. Really easy to use and you can't do something wrong with this one when you just had SMP, but I am not using it anymore.

 

So now my favorite ones are Brand foil shavers. But I would like a feedback on the Panasonic ones which look interesting as well.

Haircules, I think the skull shaver cuts closer than most rotary's because it has 5 blades but i feel the foil blade on brains etc still cut that little bit closer. Depends what you want, when I bought the skull shaver i was hoping for something that didn't cut as code as my braun and left the sand paper feel, which it does

I use a panasonic lv61 arc 5, which is an updated version of the #3 panasonic on your list.  the arc5 and the braun 7 are generally considered to be the best razors available, and i had planned to buy both and return the one i didn't like... but after i got the arc5 i just stuck with it because it works great.  i'm sure the arc4 is similar in performance.

 

Here's a video where a guy compares the arc5 and braun7... he says they are both pretty equal.  I've read (from people that used both) that the arc5 cuts a little faster since it has a larger head, but like i said, i've never compared both.  i average 3-5 minutes with the arc5, depending on how long i go between shaves.

 

 

p.s. - i was hoping it would work awesome on my face/neck, since it is supposed to be the best, but it doesn't.  no problems on the head, though.

I just heard about the skull shaver, it's interesting stuff I wanna try. I think manual shaver is the best but now I use Braun electric model cause of easiness and it got top rank in http://www.bestselli...Electric-Razor/.

Foil shavers are where it's at.

 

Bought a Series 3 for $40: http://www.walmart.c...Shaver/17747551

 

Head is done in less than 5 minutes, every 48 hours.

 

I'm sure the series 5 and 7 are better but this works great for me.

No shortage of options it would seem. For the record, I wet shave. Every other day does it.

Anyone ever tried one of these?

 

 

They might be a really bad idea, if so you can tell him.

I use a Braun Series 790cc. It's almost as close as a wet shave, can't even feel the hair it's so smooth. I'm impressed.

In my opinion the best electric shaver for use on the head and the face has
to be the Braun Series 3-340S wet and dry shaver. It's good on the head too,
take a look at the video here: https://www.youtube....h?v=72a2DyE-g8k.
You can read a full review over at ShaverSave.com if you need to know a bit
more about it. The Bald Eagle worked pretty well for some time for me, I always
use my Braun shaver now, it's surprisingly cheap too.


 

 


 

Hope this helps.


 

 



Barry.

I have Wahl cordless clipper and it is very useful for me. It has eternal battery life. we can see some battery problems for other
clipper but for wahl no so this is certainly one of the most impressive in that respect.Plus it comes with accessories for your head, face, eyebrows and more.
