Electric Shaver Comparison Chart

This is a comprehensive Electric Shaver Comparison Chart showcasing our most recommended razors, neatly grouped into three categories: high-end, mid-range and entry-level.

1. High-end Electric Shavers Comparison

High-end, advanced electric shavers are the best in terms of performance and comfort. On the flip side, you’ll usually have to pay a premium price for the top performance. A high-end electric razor will shave faster, closer and with greater comfort compared to a less advanced shaver. They’re also better at dealing with longer hair, making them a suitable choice for men that don’t shave daily.

2. Mid-range Electric Shavers Comparison

Mid-range electric shavers represent a compromise of costs and performance. Some of them actually get real close in terms of performance to the high-end shavers above, but they are more reasonably priced. In order to keep the price low, some features may be missing compared to their high-end counterparts. For example: less blades, the lack of speed settings, more basic displays, the lack of a cleaning station, less complex pivoting capabilities of the shaving head and so on. However, they’re still a great option in terms of performance and costs.

3. Entry-level Electric Shavers Comparison

Entry-level electric shavers are geared towards budget-conscious buyers and offer excellent value for money. They work best for daily shaving as they lack most of the features found on premium shavers. They’re also fitted with less powerful motors and simple shaving heads. They can however be an excellent choice for men with light to medium beards and can yield excellent results, particularly when used on a daily basis. They’re very reasonably priced and the running costs are low as well.
