The foil shaver is now even better with the introduction of the latest generation of Braun Series 3. With MicroComb technology the Series 3 catches and feeds more hair into the cutting parts, for a faster shave than ever before. Thanks to its triple action cutting system and SensoFoil the Series 3 not only delivers even better shaving performance on 3-day beards, but is also smooth on skin. Plus this Wet and Dry 3080 model can even be used in the shower with foam or gel for a more comfortable shaving experience*.
This technology helps to catch and feed more hair for a faster and more effective shave. It features two rows of fine, evenly spaced grooves which surround an independtly moving middle trimmer. With every stroke, more hair is fed through to provide a faster shaving experience with even smoother results.
The cutting system features twin foils and an integrated middle trimmer which shave progressively closer for more efficient results. Combined, they effectively cute both long and short hairs, proven even on difficult 3-day beards.
Three independtly moving cutting elements adapt to every contour on your face and neck, guaranteeing a smooth shaving experience.
Additionally, the shaver features a long hair trimmer, ideal for more accurate shaping results when trimming the moustache or sideburns.

As always good product
I've used one of these shavers for the past 4 years and really like the side trimmer and retractable foil to use around the edges of my beard. I recently thought to try removing the side cutter following YouTube instructions so I could replace it. Unfortunately, there are very thin plastic tabs holding the side unit in place and one broke, meaning the side trimmer just falls off. No chance of a successful repair, so had to buy a complete new shaver! Not too disastrous since the new foil cutters are much sharper and the price was only up by £10 in 4 years. So - I would still recommend this shaver for all those who cannot cope with blade shaving or with a rotary type electric, both of which tear my skin to shreds.
I've just upgraded after many years of using Braun Series 1 linear shavers, to this Series 3. Well worth spending a little more. The shave quality is great and the shaver is quieter during use too. A small detail but it really makes the experince more enjoyable. Usual great Braun build quality and attention to detail. The only slaight criticism, is the fact that it doesn't come with a foil guard as standard. A bit odd really but they can be purchased separately. Oveall, very happy.
