FAQs

Braun Series 3 FAQs

What’s the difference between foil and rotary shavers?
Rotary shavers are designed to work with cyclical movements while Braun foil shavers are designed to work with efficient sideways movements on the skin giving perfect control and precision. The foils protect the skin from irritation and are specifically designed to deliver the most thorough and comfortable shave from Braun.

Why would I need a Clean&Charge Station when I can clean my Series 3 shaver under water?
Our tests show that cleaning your shaver with a Clean&Charge Station is 10x more hygienic than clean it under the tap. On top it’s more convenient, i.e. at the touch of a button your shaver is cleaned, de-germed, charged and lubricated automatically..

I already have a cleaning station from my previous Braun shaver (Pulsonic or Syncro). Can I use it with the new Series 3 shaver?
No, the Series 3 Clean&Charge Station is part of the updated Clean&Charge line offered by Braun and can’t be used with previous shaver models. The updated Clean&Charge system provides you with the best technology available in a cleaning & charging system.

How often do I need to exchange the cleaning center refill cartridge?
If you clean your shaver with the cleaning center twice a week, you will only need to replace the refill cartridge every 2 to 3 months to experience a shaver like new, every day. The save & susbcribe option from Amazon allows you to subscribe for a regular home delivery and at the same time save 10% on the price of the Clean&Charge refill. You don’t have to think about it and always have a Clean&Charge refill available when you need it.

Do you have any recommendation on how to shave with an electric foil shaver?
We recommend that you shave before you take a shower. After a few days without shaving, for example during the weekend, you should trim your stubble before you shave. Stretch the skin and shave against the direction of beard growth. Hold the shaver at a right angle (90°) to your skin. Keep the pressure even to achieve the the most thorough and comfortable shave from Braun.

How often do I need to change the shaver head?
We recommend replacing all cutter parts every 18 months. We included a replacement part indicator in the display to ensure you know when to exchange the cutter parts, in order for your shaver to always stay at 100% performance.

Does the Braun Series 3 have a warranty? How long is it?
All Braun shavers come with a 2 year manufacturer's warranty.

Worst Shaver Ever

Horribly unclose shave. I've used it for about a year and the shaver is real bad.

first experience with Braun

I purchased a Braun 340s-4 on sale and so far I have no complaints. I've used it in the shower and dry. I get a closer shave in the shower but either way I'm perfectly satisfied. Not as close as with a blade but pretty close in my opinion.

Yes, I recommend this product !

Best shaver I have ever had

After having a Braun Series 5 Activator for the past 10 yrs I didn't think the Series 3 would measure up. But to my surprise this is a better shaver than the Activator. It easily gets the hard to shave areas under my jaw line and chin and neck where my hair goes every which way. It is easy to use and clean and has a very strong motor. I love the push button on/off switch. I hope to operate this shaver for many yrs to come.

Best shaver ever

I have been using Braun shavers for 20+ years and this is by far the best I have every owned. Does everything very well. Shaves very close, even a two or three day beard. I use mine dry and it works great. Great for all parts of face. When it wears out, I will get another one like it.

Took you on on the 60 day trial - was sold after 5 weeks

Went from razor and cream for over 45 year to the Series 3 340. Was ready to give it up after 4 days but wanted to give it the 60 money back try. I am used to it now, won't go back. So easy, so good, Works GREAT - Dry is best for me, no irritation, smooth, clean, easy, not messy. Love the heads compared to the other three disk types. They run with the face, the shaver is easy to handle, comfortable, charge is good, cleans easy. I was surprised how well I adapted, doubt that I will go back to shaving with razor and cream.

Yes, I recommend this product !

Excellent shave

Used a rotary shaver for at least 30 years. When it came time for a replacement I debated over the rotary or the Braun. Stuck with the rotary and that was 1½ years ago. I never got a close shave with it. I replaced it with the Braun 3 a little over a month ago and what a difference. Even the next morning my face is smoother than it was right after a shave with the rotary. Easy to clean, no muss, no fuss, only a really good shave.

Yes, I recommend this product !

Failed just out of warranty

I have been an avid Norelco user but when my last one died about 2 and a half years ago I decided to give Braun a chance. I was intrigued by the wet/dry option and had heard good things about Braun in the past. I never was as satisfied with the shave quality of the Braun as I was my previous Norelco units, but I made my decision and had to stick with it. Well, that was about 2 and a half years ago. last week for no clear reason I was unable to start my Braun. The switch failed. Even though I knew it wasn't fully discharged I put it on charge and after reaching full charge, I could get it to turn on, but shortly afterward it started on its own and would not shut off. I was able to shave that day, and was thinking that if I let it discharge completely and then recharge before use, I could get by with that for a while. No, the next time around I again could not get the switch to activate and am left with a non-operational shaver. I bought another Norelco and am loving it already.

No, I do not recommend this product.

Poor reliability and service response

I had my Braun 340 for approximately 14 months. It was understandable when I had to replace the foil blade and head, and the wet/dry feature was nice, but about 21/2 months ago, the on/off switch started malfunctioning. The razor, either in the charger or out would come on by itself (wouldn't that have been nice if it had done that in my suitcase when I was flying. They probably would have diverted the flight because of a bomb scare). Finally, it wouldn't come on at all. It is now at a service center where they have quoted me a repair price that is $25.00 more than what I paid for it. No thank you. Back to my Philips/Norelco.

No, I do not recommend this product.

Why waste money on a Remington

As a long time Remington user, mine came apart and frankly after getting a Series 3-340s, I wished it had died earlier. What a world apart the Braun and Remington are. Not even close. The Braun is super smooth saving, no irratation and shaves closer than the Remington. Built better, the list goes on and on. For the price, I'll never use another.
