SyncroSonic Technology

Experience an efficient and comfortable shave with an enhanced Series 9 shaver*; noticeably different. The SyncroSonicTM shaver head has four specialised cutting elements, each performing a specific and different task to capture more hair than any other shaver, even on a 3-day beard.

  1. Sonic Technology - With 40,000 cross cutting actions powered by Sonic micro-vibrations to remove more hair than any other shaver.
  2. Direct and Cut Trimmer - Aligns and cuts hair growing in different directions.
  3. HyperLift and Cut Trimmer - Lifts and cuts flat lying hairs from problem areas like the neck and chin area.
  4. 2×OptiFoil - Better finish, closer than any other shaver.

Fully Flexible Shaving System

Flexible cutting elements mounted on a fully pivoting head: MicroMotion combined with MacroMotion allows the shaver to maintain more skin contact, for maximum facial adaptability and the most thorough results.

100 Per Cent Waterproof

The Braun Series 9 can be submerged in water up to 5 m deep, making it fully washable and allowing you to rinse it under running water for easy cleaning.

Wet and Dry

Specifically designed to be safe to use in the shower with foam or gel to give you a refreshing and moisturising experience without the compromise in performance.

Precision Trimmer

The integrated and skin-friendly precision trimmer slides out of the back of the shaver for easy and accurate sideburn shaping.

Braun Series 9 - A Better Shaving Experience

Engineered, tested and made in Germany, the Series 9 foil shavers give you a shave different from the rest. Every element has been designed for the better functionality, results and performance that lasts longer. The secret is in the details, from the ergonomic shape and rubberised grip designed to fit you hand naturally and intuitively, to the Li-Ion battery, giving you a reliable full charge in 1 hour for 50 minutes of electric shaving.

In addition to Braun’s SyncroSonic technology and specialised cutting elements, the Series 9 shaver delivers better performance for higher comfort, even in problem areas. Your shave can now be finished in fewer strokes, which means less repetition resulting in less irritation. Needing less pressure applied, it is gentler on the skin than any rotary or foil shaver.
