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.

I hadn’t bought a shaver for quite a few years, and they’ve certainly come along way. I was impressed with the closeness of shave, and the overall feel and ease of use with this shaver. Included is only a small brush, so you may want to order other accessories with it if you need them. Although it does have a trimmer for sideburns/beard shaping. It’s well built and nicely designed (and very easy to clean). The price is reasonable for what you get. I can see it lasting a good few years.
The most recent Philishave I bought proved very poor so thought I'd try the Braun. I'm very pleased with it and the service from Shavers was to its usual high standard.
