You can easily fit it inside a wardrobe or a travel pouch easily. Its body is black and silver metal and its weight is only 2.08 pounds.

The company is making sure that you have not to worry about the accidental falls when you are shaving inside the washroom.

Flexible Shaving System

Braun’s four cutting system depends on the directional pivoting head. For making the cutting work easily and independently the head can pivot back and forth.

For this, in their series 9, Braun added a 10 directional pivoting head.

This series also has one of the implemented flexing shaving heads. I can bet, It is the best from any other shavers.

You can lock this in any position you want. This is dedicated to a switch, which is located on the front of the shaver.

SyncroSonic Technology

Braun has this patented technology. With the Braun Series 9 9290cc, there are 5 Synchronic elements. Those help to capture more hair than any other premium shavers.

The Braun Series 9 9290cc is able to adapt your beard and provide more power. This shaver allows the user to alter the power output of the shaver.

The power depends on the area they were shaving.

Accordingly, the technology can read the density of the beard with adjusting the power. So, we can call this SyncroSonic technology.

4 Individual Cutting Elements

The shaving head compromised to four cutting parts during this shaver.


There are square measured 2 foils known as OptiFoils shave hairs about to skin. The foils use polygon shaped holes for it. Therefore holes square measure superior for capturing hairs simply.

#HyperLift & Cut Trimmer

A hyper lift and cut trimmer could be a novel part of series 9. The trimmer is intended to cut flat-lying hairs. You find the identity of the foils with distinctive golden color. The compound coating makes this color. For its opposing corrosive and edge retention properties, Braun uses a ceramic material.

#Direct & Cut Trimmer

There’s an on the spot cut trimmer. This makes the facility to capture the hair that grows in the different direction in your face.

Braun presents the series 9 with five cutting parts. The fifth part of the series is named skin guard. This skin guard could be a piece of metal that placed within the right next of direct and cut trimmer.

But if we have a tendency to become honest, then we’ve to mention that, this is often not a cutter. And it mustn’t count as one.

If you wish an example of five cutting parts than Panasonic Arc5 could be an excellent example.

Lock System

The lock system is controlled by 2 buttons. These buttons are located in the front of the shaver.

#Silver Slide Toggle: This button works for locking the head in any direction. You can use this switch in any position if you want to lock it. Then the shaver head will not move to any other direction.

#Power Button: This is the main switch of the shaver. This button is used for turning the shaver on or off.

There are also some grips on the shaver body. They generally used to stop your thumb from slipping. If you find the locking and unlocking system is frequent while you are shaving, then you’ll appreciate its front and center position.

Wet and Dry

This is the main upper lift option of high-quality electric shavers. The Braun Series 9 9290cc electric shaver also has this outstanding wet & dry feature.

It is fully submergeable under water up to 5 meters. This means that you can use this Braun 9290cc electric shaver when you are taking shower, with your favorite shaving gel or foam.

You are also allowed to use it dry. These all mean you can have a perfect shave in your suitable way.

100% Waterproof Shaver

A waterproof shaver is always nice because you are allowed to rinse the shaver under water.

When you want to clean the shaver manually, this will help you a lot to clean the shaver easily by running tap water.

And for this, you don’t have to worry about breaking it.

You can jump in your shower and easily shave as well. This shaver is 100% waterproof.

Automatic Cleaning

You may know this matter that, Braun Series 9 comes with an automatic cleaning and charging station.

Braun cleaning station will automatically charge, cleans, lubricates, and dry the shaver.

Slide-up Trimmer

The Braun Series 9 9290cc electric foil shaver features a premium slide-up trimmer for detail trimming.

You can shape your sideburns, eyebrows, and mustache with the slide-up trimmer.

The trimmer is very handy to make edge lines too.

So, you are getting a trimming opportunity too with the Braun series 9 shaver.

LED Display

It is so convenient to use a cordless foil shaver because there is no way to know about the charge of how remains it.

There is also no way to know the battery life, unlike other models. But this model comes with a big LED display. So, you can know the running time left.

The display will show it. It also displays which numbers of minutes are left before its power runs out. This screen also shows some information about hygiene status.

The Braun logo is just given below the LED screen so that you can remember this in every shave about who makes your shaver.

Cleaning and Charging Station

The Braun Series 9 is really special for its world’s only 5-action Cleaning & Charging station.

The design and performance of the cleaning and charging station of Braun series 9 are not comparable with any other competitor.

The dock offers fast cleaning, charging, lubricating, selecting a cleaning program and drying the shaver by a single touch of a button.

It works almost silently during the entire operation. You can say this best part of this machine.

Longer Running Time

The shaver takes a short time to charge. To completely get charged, it takes only one hour. I think it is something impressive because with just one hour and it’ll be charged fully. Isn’t it amazing?

If you want, you can use it continuously for 50 minutes so easily.

However, this is not the last. You can use it not exactly 50 minutes, you can also use it one week or more. It totally depends on your needs and demands. There is also an option for fast recharging the shaver when you are in a hurry and need a fast trimming or shaving.

Titanium Coated Blades

The blades of this machine are titanium coated. They are so much excellent in cutting thick, unkempt beards.

You can easily use the shaver because of its efficiency in trimming.

The blades remain very sharp and effective until the shaving head expires.

Cordless Shaving

A high quality based battery equipped this shaver. So, you can’t lose your time to perform it. It only takes one hour to fully charge.

There is a huge LED display on the shaver, which counts down the remaining minutes of shave time. So, the shaver gives you a cordless shaving that you wanted.

Performance of Braun Series 9 9290cc Shaver

If we want to know about the performance, first we have to make some points. By this point, we judge this shaver performance.


There are many shavers that make much close shave, as Panasonic Arc5 is better. But it has also some reason to feel discomfort with this. I have some difficulty to get close shave right above my upper lip. But with this shaver, I think the problem almost goes. So, I think it is one of the closer shavers.


With its combination of various features and factors, the shaver comfortably finishes its work. I call this shaver king of comfort because of its amazingly comfortable performance. If you have sensitive skin and feel razor burns, you must try this shaver at least once to check how comfortable it is.

#Shaving Longer Whisker

This shaver is good to shave long whisker. Sometimes when I forget to shave for 1 week, this shaver never make me any experience with pulling or yanking.

#Long Hair Trimmer

I only used the trimmer when I want to shape my sideburns of the beard and it takes me a lot to do with the Braun 9290cc. This trimmer works faster, but the performance of this trimmer could have been a lot of better.

After being this point, you are able to judge the performance of the Shaver.


Braun Series 9 9290cc comes with 2 years warranty. I think 2 years is enough for a foil type electric shaver.

If you want to make this continuous work after 2 years, you just take good care of it.
