Braun Series 3 Comparison: Which One Should You Buy?

Braun Series 3 Comparison: Which One Should You Buy?

The Series 3 line has long been a favorite among electric shaving enthusiasts.

The reasonable price, decent performance, and the inexpensive replacement parts, all backed by Braun’s notorious reliability, were the key ingredients for the product’s success.

After several years of very strong sales, in 2015 Braun decided to revamp its line of entry-level shavers.

The new Series 3 family includes several variations, with razors suitable for wet & dry or dry only operation.

Let’s take a closer look.

Braun Series 3 overview

The new Series 3 from Braun is a no-frills family of electric shavers aimed at the budget-conscious buyer.

It features a simple 3 blade fixed shaving head. The 3 shaving elements are however independent and can move freely.

As with all modern Braun razors, the blades and foils are integrated into a single piece called cassette.

As we know from the older generation, these cassettes offer great value for money as they are inexpensive (at least when compared to similar shavers from Panasonic for example) and must be replaced only once every 18 months.

They are also backward compatible with the old Series 3 like the 340s, 380s and so on.

The design of the current shavers is sleeker and more refined, but again, nothing too radical. They are still instantly recognizable as Braun Series 3 razors.

Braun Series 3 differences

The new Series 3 lineup is actually comprised of 3 distinct subfamilies of electric shavers.

1. Braun Series 3

This is the basic Series 3 line, with models like the 310s (wet & dry) or 300s (dry only).

Braun Series 3 310s.

They are also the least expensive Series 3 variation, but that comes with a few shortcomings: there’s no slide-out hair trimmer and the shavers are fitted with a smaller battery that provides only 30 minutes of cordless operation.

The dry only models (for example, the 300s) will however work while charging.

The basic Series 3 shavers also come with a different shaving head than the rest of the Series 3 (part number 21b).

You can however use the revised shaving head (32s/32b) as it will fit just fine.

2. Braun Series 3 ProSkin

The ProSkin line is the more premium Series 3 and includes features like a slide-out hair trimmer (certain models), bigger battery (45 minutes), better battery level indicator.

The Braun Series 3 ProSkin 3040s.

The Braun Series 3 ProSkin 3040s.

In order to differentiate the new razors from the old Series 3 line, Braun decided to use a simple, but effective name scheme by only adding a 0 after the 3. For example, the old Series 3 340s is now the 3040s.

The ProSkin models are also available with a cleaning station — for example, the Series 3 ProSkin 3050cc.

Performance-wise, the ProSkin models aren’t much different from the basic, entry-level Series.

They use a different shaving head (32s/32b) that has a revised hole pattern, supposedly helping to catch the hairs more efficiently.

Here’s a table showing the main differences between the most popular Series 3 ProSkin models.

The dry only models will also work with the cord plugged in, so if that’s important to you, you may very well opt for one of those.

The wet & dry Series can only be operated cordless as a safety precaution.

Cleaning a Series 3 shaver with tap water.

All Series 3 shavers (including the dry only models) are waterproof and can be rinsed under the tap for effective cleaning.

3. Braun Series Shave&Style

The Shave&Style models are basically the exact same models of the Series 3 ProSkin (3010s and 3000s), but they also include a trimmer attachment and 5 combs.

The Series 3 3010BT.

The Series 3 3010BT.

As a result, you can swap the shaving head and use the trimmer with the attachments to maintain a beard or even to shave your head.

There are two Shave&Style models available, namely the 3010BT (wet & dry) and 3000BT (dry only).

As the names suggest, they are basically the Series 3 ProSkin 3010s and 3000s respectively, but bundled with the aforementioned accessories for styling the hair.

You can also purchase the trimmer attachment and combes separately and use them with any Series 3 model. The part number for the set is 32BT.

Which Series 3 model should you buy?

That decision should really come down to two factors: your budget and your personal requirements.

For example, the basic Series 3 should be very appealing due to its low price.

The smaller battery is a minus, especially in the case of the wet & dry models like the 310s that will not work while charging.

Also, the entry-level Series 3 only has a low charge indicator, so that could take you by surprise.

There is a 5-minute quick charge feature that should provide enough charge to complete one shave.

Some users consider the ability to use a shaver cordless and corded a must-have, so if that’s the case, you should check out some of the dry only models.

The 300s is one of those and likely the cheapest Series 3 you can buy right now.

Braun Series 3 300s

See the price on Amazon

My personal pick would be the 3010s or 3040s from the ProSkin line.

The bigger battery, nicer design, better battery display indicator (certain models), and the slide-out trimmer (certain models) are the main reasons for that.

Braun Series 3 3040s

See the price on Amazon

You can usually get them for not a whole lot more money compared to the 300s above.

For example, the 3040s is often discounted and thus offers fantastic value for money.

It’s also fitted with a slide-out trimmer. And while far from being great, it’s still useful for some light grooming.

Alternatively, there’s the 3010s that I reviewed here that’s basically identical, minus the slide-out trimmer.

Braun Series 3 ProSkin 3010s

However, if you can get it for significantly less money, I think it’s a solid option.

Finally, the dry only ProSkin 3000s can be used while charging, so again if that’s a must-have for you, it can be bought for a very reasonable price.

Braun Series 3 ProSkin 3000s

See the price on Amazon

Again, no trimmer is present on this shaver, but that’s not a deal-breaker in my opinion.

Performance-wise, all the Series 3 ProSkin are exactly the same, so you should only consider the price and accessories/features when deciding which one to buy.

So what about the cc Series ProSkin models that come with a cleaning station?

Well, they are usually quite pricey for an entry-level razor and to be honest, the shavers are pretty easy to clean manually.

The station seems to remain unchanged from the previous Series 3 generation and it uses the same alcohol-based Braun CCR refills.

The Braun Series 3 3050cc.

The Braun Series 3 3050cc.

The Series 3 ProSkin 3050cc is one of the models that include the cleaning base and again, it looks like the top pick from the bunch as it usually costs less than the other similar models (3070cc, 3090cc).

For more details you can also check out our review of the 3050cc.

IMPORTANT: the Series 3 s models (solo) that didn’t come with a cleaning station will NOT work with one. So if you’re thinking of buying an s model (e.g. 3010s, 3040s, etc.) and use it with an existing station or you plan on getting one later on, it will not work. Only the cc shavers (like 3050cc, 3090cc, etc.) will be compatible with the station.

A very interesting addition to the Series 3 is the set of compatible accessories designed specifically for men who maintain a beard.

The 32BT trimmer and combs set.

See the price on Amazon

Precisely, we have a trimmer attachment that looks very similar to a regular facial trimmer and can be used to trim your entire beard.

You simply pop out the regular cassette and insert the trimmer in its place.

There are also 5 combs with different lengths (1 to 7 mm).

You can buy the trimmer attachment and combs separately and use it with your existing Series 3 or you can buy it as a package with the shaver included (for example, the Braun Series 3 3010BT Shave & Style is such a model).

Who should you buy the Braun Series 3?

As mentioned earlier, the Series 3 is Braun’s entry-level family of electric razors for men.

If you’re not particularly demanding when it comes to the closeness of the shave and you don’t want to spend a lot of money on an electric shaver, the Series 3 is one of the most compelling offerings out there.

They’re priced quite reasonably, especially the dry only ProSkin models that represent a great compromise in my opinion.

The Series 3 shavers work best when used on shorter facial hair, but perform better than other similarly priced foil shavers from the competition when used on 2 or 3 days beard.

They are arguably the most comfortable electric razors in this price range as well, so if you have sensitive skin, definitely consider them.

The Braun Series 3 would also be an excellent choice for a beginner or a teenager. They are really easy to use, to clean and cheap to maintain.

Finally, don’t neglect the cost aspect as you can often find several Series 3 models for a bargain price.

And as we saw, as far as shaving performance goes, they are all basically the same.

Overall, the new Series 3 is a welcome revamp of an already excellent line of shavers; while it doesn’t bring any major improvements, it will most likely help Braun maintain a top position in the entry-level market of electric razors.

      Hi,

      The 3030s is suitable for dry shaving only. The shaving performance between the two is identical. The Series 3 works best when used on short facial hair – I would say below 2.5 mm.

      Hi Debmala,

      That depends on what you need from an electric razor. If you maintain a beard or goatee, the 3010BT would be the one to have. Otherwise you can go for the 3040s and use its hair trimmer for minor touchups. The shaving performance of both is identical and they use the same shaving heads.

            Hi Jotham,

            Both the 3010BT and the 3040s use the same shaving head (32b).

            Regarding the 310s vs 3010s, the former has a smaller battery (only 20 minutes of shaving time vs 45 in the case of the 3010s). Other than that and some minor design differences, they are very similar.

      Hi,

      The color is basically the only difference between them; both come with a hair trimmer and a protective cap. The precision lock is just a switch that locks the blades into place and it’s only present on certain Series 3 models (please see the table in the article). Neither the 3020s or the 3030s has it, but it doesn’t really matter.

      Hope this helps.

    Thanks for the informative review of the Braun 3 Series shavers. It’s refreshing to find an unbiased review that’s not a “paid advertisement”. I purchased the 3010BT to replace my old Braun 7526 that recently died and a cheap off brand beard trimmer. While the 7526 was an excellent shaver, I am not a fan of the cleaner cartridges. They work well put are not very cost effective. Looking forward to see how well this unit works and how easy it is to clean.
    Thanks again for the review.

          So unfortunately you cannot buy a solo model like the 3040s for example as it will not work with a cleaning station.

            The Series 3 solo models lack the electronics needed to communicate with the station. The Series 7 is the only one that will work with a compatible cleaning & charging station.

      Hi Lionel,

      The 320-s4 is part of the previous generation and yes, it’s suitable for dry only use. However, in terms of features and performance it’s very similar to the new Series 3 models. It uses the same foils and blades and it’s also fitted with a long hair trimmer. If you can find it at a better price than let’s say a 3040s, then by all means go for it. As I said, the actual shaving performance will be the same.

      Hi Mark,

      Thank you for your comment. Both the 3040s and 3020s are IPX7 certified, so you can submerge them in water without any problems. However, the 3040s is explicitly marketed as a wet & dry shaver since it won’t work while charging (as a safety precaution). The 3020s does work when it’s connected to an outlet, so that would be a serious risk if someone where to use it like that in the shower for example.

      The performance of the two shavers is indeed identical and they also use the same shaving head.

      Hope this helps.

          You are welcome, Mark. While I cannot explicitly recommend it (for obvious reasons), there are many users that have successfully used them in that manner, with absolutely no damage to the shavers. Just make sure to clean your Series 3 after every use and also lubricate it regularly (clipper oil, sewing machine oil or a lubricating spray like Remington Shaver Saver will work great).

Otherwise, there are many factors to take into account when looking for a shaver that is suitable for you and you alone. I highly recommend you to check out this article as I cover the topic in great deal and also make quite a few shaver recommendations.

      Hi aakash,

      Thank you for your comment. I am not familiar with Braun’s prices in India, but you may be able to grab a Series 5 for under $100. That’s definitely the best Braun shaver you can get in that price range. Try to look for a solo model (that doesn’t come with a cleaning station), they are always cheaper than the cc models.

    Hi Ovidiu:

    I have an old Braun 5 series, and just bought the 3020S to use while travelling.

    I’m dismayed, however, to find that I cannot separate the cutter head from the blades, so I can only clean them with running water. This seems to me to be a retrograde step, probably to ensure users have to buy the whole assembly at a greater price.

    My question is how best to clean the blades and foil. Hot water seems a poor way of doing that, and direct application of an alcohol cleaner is better than just spraying into the head.

    Also, do you recommend running the shaver while dousing it in hot water to clean it.

    Where exactly does one insert the drop of oil? Should the oil be used while the shaver is running?

    Is the old Braun 5 series more powerful and efficient than the new 3020 series?

    Many thanks!

      Hi Madrigal,

      Thank you for your comment. All current Braun shavers (except for their travel shavers) use these so-called cassettes that have the blades and foils merged into a single piece. This does make a manual cleaning more difficult, but on the Series 3 is not nearly as bad compared to the current Series 5, 7 or 9. I’ve found that the best way to clean them is to use a bit of liquid soap and warm tap water. After completing your shave, remove the cassette and gently tap the plastic frame on the sink to get rid of the bulk of hair strands. Put it back on the shaver, add a bit of water and few drops of liquid soap on the foils, then turn the shaver on and let it run for around 15 seconds. You can add a few drops of water if needed so the soap can lather nicely. Rinse the shaving head under warm tap water (with the shaver still running). After that, turn the razor off, remove the cassette, rinse it thoroughly (both the outside and the inner part). Rinse the shaver’s body as well, shake off the water and gently pat the parts with a towel and let them air dry completely.

      As for the lubrication, I would do it after every cleaning that involves the use of soap. You must place a single drop of oil on the outside of each cutting element (in the case of the Series 3, two foils and one middle trimmer). Let the shaver run for a few seconds so the oil can coat the blades evenly, then pat the foils gently with a paper tissue to absorb any excess oil.

      I haven’t got the chance to test the older Series 5 unfortunately, so I cannot compare it directly to the Series 3. The current Series 5 is a superior shaver though, it feels more powerful and faster and also gets flat hairs a lot more efficiently.

      Hope this helps.

      Sincerely,
      Ovidiu

    Question.. first I no longer have the original instructions. I’ve been satisfactorily using my Series 3 Braun for quite a few years. I do complain the head could perform longer than two to three months before needing replacement. I’m writing because the small AMBER light is now lit but I don’t know why. I’m familiar with the charging green light. What does the yellow light indicate? I don’t recall seing this light glowing. What should I be doing about it.

      Is it the low-charge light in this picture? If not, you may be referring to the replacement light that comes on after at least 18 months. You can press and hold the power switch for at least 5 seconds to reset it.

          Hi Hosam,

          You can use an electric shaver to shave your head as well (even though they are designed to shave facial hair). Just make sure the hair on your head is very short — otherwise, it will miss and yank some of them. The Series 3 is a very decent entry-level razor, but something like a Braun Series 9 or Panasonic Arc 4/5 will be faster and more efficient (and also cost a lot more).

          Hope this helps.

      Yes, that’s the main difference. The 3020 also comes with the 32b shaving head that has different foil hole pattern compared to the older 21b on the 300s. But the differences between them are not major.
      You can use a Series 3 for shaving your head as well.

    THANK YOU SO MUCH!
    I’ve been googling for days to buy my first electric shaver ever.
    I gradually downgraded from series 9 to 3 (money!).
    I was so confused but you made it so clear.
    Again, thank you.

      Hi,

      From your comment, I understand that it must be a Braun Series 3, so in that case my recommendation would be the 3040s. While all the models in the Series 3 ProSkin will ultimately shave the same, the 3040s is usually priced reasonably, it’s available in most regions, it’s a wet/dry model and it also has a slide out trimmer. The Series 3 is a very decent budget shaver, however I personally think that a Series 5 is superior in pretty much every aspect. So if you’re willing to spend a bit more on that one, I think it’s well worth the investment.

      Sincerely,
      Ovidiu

      Hi Bill,

      Yes, you can use it in Europe, however you will need a simple and cheap plug adaptor to charge it.

    Hi, Im looking at buying a 3000bt, right now the 3010bt is only about $10 more so my question is what are really the differences?
    I know that 3010 is for wet and dry while the 3000 is for only dry, but from my understanding the only real difference is that the 3000 can be used corded. If I would use the 3000 uncorded, are there any differences compared to the 3010?

    Thanks!

      Hi Martin,

      That is correct, there aren’t any other differences (besides the color). The 3000bt is not wet/dry certified, but you can still rinse it under the tap (it comes with IPX7 waterproofing). The corded use is a perk of these dry only models.

      Sincerely,
      Ovidiu

        Hi!

        First of all, sorry for my English, it is not my native language.
        I had the 350cc shaver, but it broke a few days ago. I am thinking buying the 3020s, but do you know if it will be compatible with the 350cc clean&charge station?
        Thanks for your replay.
        BR.

          Hi Sergio,

          Unfortunately no, the 3020s will not work with the cleaning station. In fact, none of the solo models (that end in s) will work with a cleaning station.

          Sincerely,
          Ovidiu

    My new 3080s shaver doesn’t seem to work in my old Series 3 Clean and Charge stand. Any reason why that is the case?

      Hi Ron,

      The Series 3 models that end in s (like your 3080s, 3040s end so on) lack a chip used to communicate with the station, so they will not work. Only a cc shaver that originally came with a station will work.

      Sincerely,

    I already have a charging station (from the older S 3090 series). Will the newer models like S3080 that DO NOT come with a charging station still work with the charging station, e.g., can I clean a model that does not come with a charging station using an existing charging station, or will only the 3050, 3070, and 3090 work?

      No, as mentioned in the article, the Series 3 shavers that do not come with a cleaning station will NOT work with one.
