Let me settle the score here - a wet shave (using some kind of razor) will provide a better shave than any electric shaver. However, many men have various reasons for opting for the electric razor. Some like how electric shavers are quicker and provide the ability to shave anywhere. Seniors may like electric shavers because a steady hand isn't all that crucial. Guys with acne swear that they get less cuts and knicks with electric shavers.

Whatever the case, if you're opting for an electric shaver, you want to use the Best of the Best.

Best Electric Shavers by Vic Sosikian

The Best You Can Get

  • Braun Pulsonic System 9585CC

    Vic says: The pulsonic technology packed in this system provides more than 10,000 micro-vibrations per minute, which helps expose and shave more hair with each stroke. The Gillette Blade Technology shaves hair close without pulling or tugging. These features, combined with the patented power comb, literally lifts hairs that lie flat to the face. Finally, the smart foil system provides a smoother shave with less strokes. Top it off with this Braun's push button technology - you get a cleaned, lubricated, dried, and charged shaver with a single push of a button.

The Pivot Action Selector allows you to adjust the pivot to your liking. Its linear motor pumps out 13,000 RPM to help with extra thick beards. The pop-up trimmer cleans up your sideburns, moustache, and beard. The HydraClean System provides a water-infused hygienic solution that cleans stubble and debris from the shaver and refreshes the blades.

    Vic says: The Jet Clean and Charge system of this Norelco automatically cleans your razor and charges it, while the Patented Reflex Action System adjusts to every curve on your face for a more flexible and smooth shave. An impressive feature of this shaver is the ultra-thin heads with slots and holes that get to all types of hair while catching the loose ones neatly. These heads are individually floating - this aligns the razor-sharp blades closer to your skin for amazing closeness. Finally, the superior lift-and-cut technology is a dual-blade system which lifts facial away from the skin level to ensure that the hair is cut comfortably.

The Pivot Action Selector allows you to adjust the amount of pivot based on your preference. The sharp blades provide for precise and accurate shaving. Most conventional shavers offer a range of 45 to 90° blades, this shaver, on the other hand, offers the sharpest blade angle at 30°, which is perfect for precision cutting. You can shave wet or dry with this fully water immersible, one-of-kind shaver.
