Built quality

Origins

The Braun series 5 is made in Germany like the more premium series 7 and series 9 but in the beginning, they used to make in china like series 3.

The interesting thing of this model 5195cc is

Shaver – made from Germany

Cleaning cartridge- from Ireland

Cleaning station – from Hungary

Charging cord, cleaning brush, and travel case – from China.

 This Braun Series 5 5195cc is made completely out of plastic including both glossy as well as matte treatments.

The output

The shaver’s back side is very plain and there is a fantastically textured rubber insert that propagates to the sides and gives superb grip even when your hands are wet.

There are 2 metal studs to contact with 2 metal plates inside the cleaning station. The Braun 5195cc is a little bit bigger and it got a sizeable girdle and looks very solid.

However, it is very light and senses well balance.

It is also almost same to the top series 9 in the terms of model language as well as a ratio.

The built quality of Braun series 5 5195cc is satisfactory with no visible drawbacks or haggish gaps between the several surfaces.

The glossy black do exhibit marks and fingerprints and it perhaps scratches easily, so will have to be conscious.

The shaving head looks like it is a high-quality product and snaps safely into place.

The LED display shows the battery level, when you need to clean your shaver or when the travel lock is activated.

One of the downsides of this Braun Series 5 5195cc electric shaver is that it sounds loud and vibrates.

Series 7 is much more elegant in this regard and didn’t feel the vibrations to get into the quality of my shave but I of course couldn’t ignore them.

The Braun series 5 is really very sturdy and you can clearly feel them in your hand and when you use them.

In total, I must say that I am really very satisfied with the build quality, look and ergonomics of the Braun Series 5 5195cc.

My experience

After lots of personal and professional tries, I came into a final experience to make a review over the Braun 5195cc electric shaver.

I did not find any problem with the shaver and found the performance and result is pretty good. I think you will not face any confusion while using the first time as this is very user friendly shaver. The built quality is premium and the clean/charge dock is lovely. Since 100% waterproof, you will not face any problem while using in wet atmosphere. I will give 4.5 out of 5 ratings overall.

Pros

  • Wet/dry shaver.
  • Lightweight and easily fits in the hand.
  • Powerful motor.
  • Cleaning and charging station.
  • 100 percent waterproof up to 5 meters.
  • Precision trimmer for accurate edges.
  • 8 direction contours flex head.
  • Sturdy travel pouch

Cons

  • Removing the shaver’s head is a little bit difficult than my previous shaver from Braun.
  • The cleaning cycle is noisy.
  • Replacement is very much expensive.
  • It takes a few passes in my mustache.
  • No protective cap

Verdict

Although a mid-range shaver, it comes with all the features that need a high-end shaver like Braun series 9 or Panasonic arc 5. Braun promises to provide super comfortable and smooth shaving experience with their series 9 shavers. The intelligent AutoSensing motor gives you a premium feeling that you will not find in the Series 7 shavers. I found very few customers blamed the built quality of the shaver and certainly the rubber grip system will give you a premium feeling and protection. If I speak to the point, you will find Braun Series 9’s feeling in this shaver and save lots of money(my personal opinion).
