The new Series 3 is the latest generation of Braun's foil shaver. The Series 3 is specifically designed for guys who don't want to compromise. Thanks to its improved Triple Action FreeFloat System, increased motor speed and new SensoFoil, the new Series 3 not only delivers even better shaving performance on three-day beards, but is also incredibly smooth on skin. In fact, it offers 30% less skin irritation in the neck area than rotary systems with built-in skin conditioners. The Series 3 340s-4 can be used under the shower with foam and gels. This is especially relevant for guys who like to shave in the shower and don't want to compromise on using a great electric shaver. The Series 3 combines world-famous Braun design with the highest Braun quality. New Braun Series 3--designed to make a difference.
Shaver features include:
Nice machine, quiet and shaves closely. The trimmer is the best I've ever had. It reaches parts other trimmers don't.
The power cord is disappointing because it does not have a universal connection, and cannot be used with a different shaver.
I do like the idea that the cutting parts have a life-expectancy of 18 months. That is a great selling point. My last shaver was a Remington triple foil, and it had a much shorter life.
Replacements could not be found in a shop. I bought it in Boots and they told me that they did not stock spare parts, because they suggested that most people just bought a new shaver. Well, that's what I've done, but I didn't go to Boots and I didn't buy a Remington.
Good and fast service! TNX!
Have had 18 months experience of this shaver.
Good shaver, gives a close shave and cleans easily.
4 stars because it is poorly equipped to travel and has a rather flimsy charger base.
A case is needed to securely enclose and protect the foil. Such a case can be purchased at a grossly inflated price but should be provided as standard, because one of the virtues of such a shaver is its portability.
