The Braun Series 9 is the world\u2019s best shaver when it comes to efficiency and skin comfort. That\u2019s a big call, but the Series 9 has earned awards that say precisely that, including GQ\u2019s 2016 Grooming Award. If you already own a Series 9 than bravo! You lead by example. If not, Braun\u2019s newest flagship razor has a host of new and improved features that provide unparalleled performance. After using this\u00a0shaver myself, I now see what all the fuss is about.\r\n\r\nThe first thing to grab my attention about was\u00a0its striking looks. This baby is as sleek as they come. Conceived\u00a0in\u00a0the same homeland\u00a0that gave birth to brands\u00a0like BMW and Mercedes, the Series 9\u00a0shares the same premium German design pedigree. We all know great looks don't always\u00a0equate to great performance, but Braun seem to have mastered\u00a0the art of\u00a0achieving high standards of both form and function.\r\n\r\nErgonomically the shaver feels great in hand. The solid build quality, soft textured grip details in exactly the right places and nice firm buttons make for a premium\u00a0tactile experience. The adjustable angle of the shaver head also offers great flexibility to achieve a comfortable angle of attack.\r\n\r\nI found the shave to be powerful and ultra smooth. Designed to make light work of hairs of all types, textures and directions of growth, a major\u00a0innovation to achieve this performance is\u00a0the Series 9's four\u00a0specialised shaving elements. Count them \u2013 four, providing an intuitive and personalised shaving experience. Behind the blades, you will find smart \u2018Synchrosonic\u2019 technology that reads the density of your beard while you shave and automatically adapts 160 times per minute.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nEach of the four blades serve\u00a0a unique purpose. The new Titanium Hyperlift and Direct Trimmer situated at the centre seek out and trim those tricky facial hairs. The first blade has upright teeth engineered to shave hairs growing in opposite directions, while the final blade lies parallel to the skin to cut the flat-lying hair. The Clean and Charge Station is incredibly cool. Insert the shaver and with the touch of a button, it's cleaned, lubricated and charged. You can also rinse it under the tap and even use the Series 9 in the shower for maximum convenience.\r\n\r\nOverall I was extremely\u00a0impressed by the shaver. The Series 9's\u00a0sleek design and solid feel\u00a0are great attributes, but to me Braun's focus on\u00a0engineering the best possible blade technology is its\u00a0biggest standout feature. It's no wonder that it's been touted the world's most efficient shaver.\r\nCheck it out\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nHave you subscribed to Man of Many?
