Good quality device, not so great for beards

Before reviewing the Braun Hair Clipper, I decided to give my facial hair a couple of weeks of growth, to really put it through its paces. (I don't trust myself to cut my actual hair, I'll leave that to the pros and here will focus on the facial topiary). So I started off with a beard of about 25mm, a moustache about half that length, and side growth that was just long enough to grab between your fingertips.The product packaging was pretty good, with the clipper kept in a separate compartment to the charging cable (which is sadly a European plug instead of a British one), cleaning brush, oil and instructions. The instructions were concise and well-written, and the clipper itself was easy to manipulate. The included short-length adapter was easily adjusted between its settings, or removed entirely.I began by tackling my now-unkempt beard. I chose a length of 16mm and the clipper made short work. I dropped the length to 9mm for the moustache, but quickly found that - like all hair clippers I have tried beforehand - the device was a little too unwieldy to easily get between my upper lip and my nose. I had to drop to 6mm to get a cut I was happy with, which resulted in a slightly untidy look. I ended up having to do some fine tuning with small scissors afterwards.I then removed the adapter to attack my sideburns, chinstrap, neck growth etc. The overall quality of the cut wasn't bad, but it wasn't as short as I'd liked. It left me looking like I'd not shaved for a couple of days. If someone was wanting to maintain a bald head with this clipper, they would need to finish the job with a razor.A good point in its favour is that, compared to some clippers which leave a rough end to the hairs, the cut was pretty clean and neat, giving a nice feel to the beard.Cleaning the clipper was pretty easy - simply remove the adapter and rinse under a tap. Unfortunately, unlike some higher-end clippers, this one didn't have any built-in way of containing cut hair. Many clippers now contain a vacuum to suck up the majority of the hairs, but in this case the ones that didn't end up clinging to the clipper wound up down my arm, chest and all over the sink, resulting in a larger clean-up than if I'd just used scissors - if I had used scissors to trim, I would have had a handful of hair from each cut, easily disposed of. This I'm sure is not such a problem for cutting head hair, as this is normally done over an easily-cleaned floor or a disposable mat, but it's not so great for facial hair.It gets a point back for taking easy care of my monobrow, though. It's a shame that, unlike my previous Remington clipper, it didn't come with a travel bag that could double as a wash bag. That would be very handy, and didn't make the Remington expensive.Overall, I wouldn't recommend this over a specialised beard trimmer, although I have no problem believing it's more than adequate for casual use on head hair.

Sharp Looks

So I was pretty impressed to receive these Braun Hair Clippers to test out. As a guy who is follicly challenged I regularly cut my own hair and have been doing so for a number of years, I mean who's going to pay for a number 1 all over!?On to the product. The packaging was slick and the contents were as described on the box, you got the clippers, a guard, some oil, a charger and of course the instructions. I was keen to try out the sharp for life cut and I have to say I was not disappointed. Not only was it effortless to cut the hair, but the feel of the clippers, their light weight and general ease of use meant that the weekly trim was going to get much more enjoyable. I didn't really have much use for the guard, but I gave it a go when I trimmed my beard and as a word of warning if you press the clippers into your skin too hard the forks of the guard can spread apart which then means you get trimmed to the skin, I cannot see this being an issue though.Overall I have been very impressed with the product, it's fully washable, charges in good time, is light and easy to take when travelling and fits well in the hand. I have to say it stacks up very well against my other cordless clippers. The only thing I wish it had was a guard what allowed for a shorter trim, I have a 1.5mm option with my other cordless clippers.Here's looking forward to many more quick cuts with these excellent clippers.

More Braun less.....hair

So, I have had the Braun Hair Clipper (HC5010)for 3 weeks, and I must be the best groomed guy I know. I got these free from Braun and would have been happy to pay the full cost. It is light, cordless, and runs along all the contours of my chest, face, and head effortlessly maintaining the hair length of my choice. The battery lasts easily to shave my face a few times in the week, and has enough juice left to cut through the thicker hair on my head. The length goes as short as grade 1 by easily removing the stylish blue blade guard and to keep your hair longer, simply leave the guard on and slide it to the desired setting. The blades cut extremely smoothly and are easy to brush clean, as well as having the unusual benefit of being washable. In summary, the Braun Hair Clipper is fantastic to hold, light weight for your travel bag, easy to manoeuvre across your chest, chin, and head, has a battery that actually lasts the advertised time (50 minutes), cutting length to suit all styles, and if anyone sees it fall out of my kit bag, they'll be impressed. Thank you Braun for sending me this product to try for free, well impressed. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Handy product, will save a fortune on Barbers fees!

I received this product (HC5010) for free from Braun.Although I have only used the Braun Hair Clipper once, I am already loving it. I am used to corded hair clippers and to be honest found them a bit awkward to use due to the wire (and being a leffie)The cordless Braun clippers have a long battery life, they claim aprox 50 minutes usage from a charge (but ive only used them for 15 minutes so have not been able to test that claim), and the box boasts that it has two batteries which I it surprising as it doesn't feel too heavy.At first is was unsure about the built in length guide - i was worried mid way through cutting the length would change id id end up with some funky, weird hair cut. But the guide if firm and does not feel like its going to move unexpectedly.The clippers are also not too noisy - my Whal mains operated ones were very noisy (even after a full service) compared to the Braun.The clippers are comfortable to use, with a nice feel to the grip regardless of the way you are holding them (I personally find i have to hold in different orientations depending on what part of my hear I am at) which made for comfortable usage whilst trimming my hair.Why Have I only given 4 stars? It would have been nice for a pouch to be included to keep everything together. Thats the only thing I can fault. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Great clippers despite being a little on the short side.

The first thing I noticed was the build quality, they felt much better than regular hair clippers. The rubberised grip felt good in the hand. The weight of the clippers also felt nice and balanced. The 9 different settings for hair length felt a little confusing after using standard clippers with the usual detachable number graded attachment. It took a little experimenting to get a suitable length to cut my hair. The only complaint I have with these clippers is that I couldn't get a length of cut which I was totally happy with. The closest I could was still a little short for me. However using the clippers was a very good experience overall. The clippers had a good 50 mins of charge and recharging was fast. Overall I really like these clippers and would recommend them to anyone, especially those who like their hair cut nice and short! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Braun HC5010

I was lucky enough to be sent a free Braun HC5010 Hair clipper in return for the following honest review:I received the Braun hair trimmer in the post and decided to give it a go over the weekend, to be fair I didn't have a lot of hair that I was going to cut with it, as I don't have short hair and wasn't looking to change styles before the summer. So for me I just sorted out the hair around my ears, sideburns and the back of my neck. It worked perfectly fine for me on doing that. The different length settings were easy to use and allowed me to have a consistent length all over, which I was very happy with the final result.What I then did though was use my guinea pig, which was my dad who is balding and shaves his hair down to the 3mm level, which is the lowest setting on the device. It once again gave a good clean and consist cut all across the board and he was happy with the results. The only thing that we did find a little annoying was that the guard didn't come off, so we could get rid of the small tufts which spring up in the middle of his head where he has no hair, and he wants them shaved right down. So on this we used the old one that we have to get those little bits.We have learnt now after reading on the internet that you can take the guard off, it just involved a little bit of fiddling, which now going forward we are aware of, the issue we had was that we didn't read the instructions and didn't want to break it by just pulling the guard off. Thank you for the internet though.As for how the product handled, we didn't need to charge it as it came with enough charge in it to do what we needed to do, so couldn't complain about that. The device felt solid in your hand and we were happy to use it both by yourself on your own head, and when cutting someone else's hair, it never felt heavy and didn't need to put it down for a rest. It is good that it is cordless as well, so then you don't have a trailing cable running over you and getting in the way, what is nice though that if it is flat, you can plug the charging cable in and still use it.The other thing that I like about this trimmer is that it is waterproof, so it is nice and easy once finished, just run some water in the sink, dunk it in and it is all cleaned off. So it is easy to use and tidy up after finishing.The only thing with this I could see is if you want an all in one and wanted to do a beard trim, which I know it isn't sold as but some people might try to use it for, to get that designer stubble look, is it might be a little too chunky to get the right cut along the jaw bone and the upper lip. I can't comment as I didn't give this a go, but just an observation for someone looking to have an all in one trimmer. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Beautifully sharp and precise

After using the Braun hair clippers for the first time I can honestly say that my trips to the barber's will be greatly reduced. The comfortable shape and weight makes these clippers perfect for self grooming and the 9 different length settings make styling simple. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Decent Product, with useful functions.

As far as hair clippers go, this is a decent product with some useful features. Really simple to use, with a decent battery life- this provides a simple no fuss product that delivers a good result.I am not blessed with a great deal of hair so my settings are those at the lower end. Never the less the clippers offer a really unique feature that guards against embarrassing errors. The memory system that prevents you going too short is very clever and easy to set as well. I have friends that have made this error, so it's great to see a feature that prevents this happening.The cut is as you would expect, precise, clean and very straightforward. The clippers are waterproof which makes cleaning easy as well. The only drawback I see is the charging. The clippers don't come with a mains charger so you are reliant on charging using the typical bathroom sockets. Besides this minor drawback they are a decent set of clippers that we will serve you well. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Great beard trimmer

I think the Braun clipper is a great, light weight, hardy beard trimmer.It's beyond simple to use, with the sliding guard to cut to a desired length. It's stays in place so having a quick tidy up is just that, quick!I found the battery and recharge perform above the stated amount, topping it up only once over the 6 or so weeks.My man hair is also starting to creep above the neck line, the clipper was great at keeping it at bay by removing the guard for a close shave. It never once nicked the skin unlike previous products I'd owned.From a beard growing perspective, I like to keep it now around the 3mm mark and the Braun hair clipper just does that.I couldn't recommend it highly enough.
