Braun is very commercial and generally, their products are more expensive than the competitors. Although they charge more, people opt to buy Braun shavers especially for comfortable shaving results since Braun never compromises in shaving comfort. However, they also have some affordable electric shaver lines and the Braun Series 3 is one of them. The Braun Series 3 310s is a basic electric shaver model in the Series 3 that comes at a very affordable budget. Now the question is, does the low-budget shaver Braun 310s keep Braun’s reputation? In this article, I’m sharing my experience and the analyzing report on the Braun Series 3 310s shaver with pros and cons. Read the full article to judge the product if it worth Braun’s reputation.

3 Shaving Elements:
The Braun 310s shaver comes with 3 pressure sensitive shaving elements that work together for efficient performance.
There are 2 SensoFoil outer shaving elements on the head that shave the hairs from the skin level.
The SensoFoils have been engineered with hexagonal-shaped holes to capture more hairs in every stroke and protect the skin from the inner blades.
Another shaving element is called middle trimmer that is situated in the middle of the outer foils.
The main purpose of the special element is to capture and cut longer and flat-lying hairs for flawless shaves.
The gripe is, all the Braun Series 3 shavers come with a fixed shaving head that do not move around.
But the shaving elements on the head are very flexible who can move independently to adapt with the facial contours.
The elements move up/down effortlessly according to facial curves.
Therefore, the shaving process becomes very comfortable on the skin and even great for sensitive skin.
Braun Series 3 310s is waterproof even all the Braun shavers are waterproof up to 5 meters.
Therefore you can rinse it without any worry about water causing problems.
Even you can submerge the device into the bathtub.
Wet and Dry Shave
Since a waterproof electric shaver, the Braun Series 3 310s allows you to shave under the shower.
Moreover, it’s a wet/dry shaver that is suitable for shaving with shaving cream, gel, foam, water, and more.
Therefore, you can have both fast dry shaves or refreshing wet shaves with the Braun 310s shaver.
You know wet shaving is pretty much comfortable and pleasurable for the skin that ensures irritation-free gliding over the skin.
The Braun 310s is a cordless shaver that comes with 2 NiMH rechargeable batteries.
The batteries provide 30 minutes of cordless performance with 1.5 hour charge.
On the other hand, there is a 5 minute quick charging option for getting an urgent shave if the battery is fully empty and you are on the go.
But in reality, I didn’t find it’s such powerful to provide an accomplished shave with 5 minute charge.
I found it needs more than 10 minutes to get a proper charge to provide enough juice for a perfect shave.
Affordable shavers are thought to be the cheaply built devices.
But Braun never disappointed me in terms of built-quality like the china shavers.
The Braun Series 3 310s is a basic level shaver that doesn’t come with any fancy feature but the housing feels sturdy enough although an affordable range shaver.
It comes in a blue and black colored appearance that has been made mostly with plastic.
Generally, maximum electric shavers are made in plastic on the market but the shaver does feel hard enough in my grasp.
The downside is, it doesn’t have any rubber grip cover for secured handling that the advanced Series 3 shavers come with.
Another downside in the shaver is, there is no precision trimming facility to make final touches that I think the main problem in the shaver.
The Braun 310s comes with 2 AA rechargeable batteries that provide around 30 minutes of cordless performance that sometimes feel very short time for an electric shaver.
But it’s not a big issue if you are not too lazy to recharge the device after every 5-8 shaves.
Moreover, the device provides a 5-minute quick charging option according to Braun’s proclamation.
But I had to charge more than 10 minutes for an accomplished shave.
I think Braun should have designed a more advanced battery life display in this budget shaver.
The main thing I fond of is, the flexible shaving elements that move very softly for comfortable glides.
The alternatives at this budget from other brands do not have such robust and comfortable shaving elements I think.
Everything goes in vain if the performance of the shaver is not satisfactory.
I tried the Braun Series 3 310s from all the possible angles to test its actual shaving performance.
I tried both wet/dry; longer/shorter hairs to get the perfect idea of shaving results.
In terms of shaving closeness, the shaver showed me a great outcome.
I got a pretty close and smooth shaving result from the Braun 310s shaver.
But it’s not a good choice for men who have very thick beard where the shaver will show its limitation.
In terms of shaving comfort, the shaver excels all the alternatives from other brands I tried ever.
The problem is, I had to use a scissor for shaping my sideburns and mustaches since it doesn’t have any precision trimming feature.
In this term, I prefer the Braun Series 3 ProSkin shavers to the Braun 310s shaver.
However, the shaver could give me a good shaving result although I had a 2 day longer beard.
I think it will also be able to cut 3 days beard but it will take a bit more passes for 3 days longer beards.
In short, it gives me good shaving experience along with some limitations.
Replacement Parts of Braun 310s
Braun’s shavers are always adorable for their durable shaving heads.
While the other brand’s shavers need a replacement head after every 12 months, Braun shavers need it after every 18 months.
Consequently, the Braun shaver saves the extended cost intelligently.
The Braun Series 3 310s shaver has been made with the Braun 32B shaving cassette that is very available on Amazon or Braun’s showrooms.
I recommend replacing the shaving head timely while the current head gets dull to get optimum shaving results.

- Comparably noisy
There are some limitations to this shaver but I have to consider its price range.
The shaver is a good solution for men who want to have regular close shaves with great skin comfort.
But it’s not ideal for the men who demand some extra features like precision trimmer or pivoting head and more.
You have to spend some extra bucks to get those premium features and have to buy a premium shaver for that.
However; the men who do not demand fancy features and intend to have regular close shaves on an affordable budget, will be benefited from the Braun 310s shaver.
All types of hair. But the result would not be satisfactory in very thick hair and long hair.
Only for adult
Yes, it comes with a universal voltage supported adapter to use all over the world.
It’s not good enough for shaving head hairs.
