Small investment, peak performance
Within 18 months, your Braun shaver will cut an average of 6,000,000 hairs. In accomplishing this substantial task, the cutting parts will gradually wear out and your shave may become less close and comfortable. That's why Braun recommends changing your shaver’s foil and cutter block every 18 months to maintain your shaver’s maximum performance. For an efficient shave every day.
How to replace your shaver head?
For older models which have a foil and a cutter block as two independent parts you will need to change the parts in two steps: First remove the foil, either by pressing the release button if your shaver has one, or by pulling the foil. Next rotate the cutter block by 90 degrees and pull it off, holding it at the ends to avoid touching the blades. To fit new parts, simply carry out the same procedure in reverse.
Get your shaver back to 100% performance with the Braun Series 5 51s replacement head. Braun recommends changing your shaver’s blades every 18 months to maximize shaving performance and comfort. With this shaver head you will get back to the superior close shave you have come to expect from Braun. Get more details on razor heads at www.braun.com.
Changing your foil and cutter is fast and easy. Simply take the foil and cutter off your shaver, and pop the new ones in their place. Enjoy the spectacular shave!
Top customer reviews
Not sure how long it will last, but I very much like the results of the design changes.
Note: Battery and razor running 3 weeks strong on single charge.. charging it only when it runs out and even then, only plugging razor straight into the wall, rather than the cleaning/charger. The original cleaning fluid lasted me 3 yrs by only brushing and tapping out the razor everyday and uncapping fluid reservoir when I placed razor which "orange dirty light" into it to clean.
There may be some good news here though--a review by S. Bergeron for the Braun refurbished 8985 shaver that uses these blades said that the Braun 30b cutter/foil set is a better replacement. Here's what he had to say about it:
"(...The new replacement blades are the) 'gillette' blade cutter block, which is not nearly as effective as the older style Braun cutter blocks (the gillette type has wide blades with narrower gaps between them, leading to skipped hairs and requiring multiple passes).
I ordered a 30B cutting block and foil (for the series 7000 synchro models), which has the older, skinny blades design and bingo! it transformed the 8985 into the most efficient shaver i've ever used (or tried). With the fast oscilations of this model, there is no tugging and i get a shave closer than a wet blade in very little time.
NOTE: i've noticed that the current cutter blocks and foil (like the 51S) listed by Braun for the 8000 series have the more agressive 'comb' between the foils (blue in color). This comb design scrapes the skin more intensely (it is thicker, wider and protrudes more), which left me with a red face after shaving (from irritation). The 7000 series (30B) cutter/foil is more recessed and glides better on my skin without irritating it and while giving me a faster, closer shave..."
