About to throw the whole thing away until I tried this….

 on December 18, 2017
By Jack
It’s been more than a year now. I too was frustrated with my replacement head…in the beginning. The blades seemed dull and took forever to shave. I was about to throw my whole shave away. But I decided to try something different… a hot lubricated shave. I bought some cutting oil for an office paper shredder (real light oil). Rinsed the shaving head under hot water. Then added a few drops to each head while running. And then shaved. I was surprised how easy to shave again. The head glides on the skin and I’m clean shaven like it was day one with my shaver. All I can suggest is give it a try if you’re experiencing dullness with your replacement head. It just made sense to me that with all powered cutters, lubrication is key.

Expensive but last almost a year and work very well

10 years ago when I bought my first SpeedXL replacement HQ9 blades, I put an index card in the medicine cabinet with the date I replaced the blades last. I have replaced them every 10-14 months since, and always with Norelco HQ9 heads. I’ll say that every year it’s like night and day when I replace them. Honestly I probably should do it every 9 months because the cut quality is SO much better with new heads. I’ll keep buying these until the shaver dies. I’ve been impressed it’s lasted almost 10 years so far with no issues.

Does what they are supposed to do

Unless you own some top of the line foil razor that costs several hundred dollars and is made in Germany, these will have to do. These heads are compatible with several different Norelco models. These fit perfectly in my razor. I have been using the original head/blades since I bought the razor over 3 years ago. I have never been able to have ANY electric razor give me an extremely close/clean shave. I use the electric razor to get the primary hair down to a light stubble and then I use a conventional razor to finish up and leave the face ultra smooth. I don’t think any Norelco razor will give you a barber shop type shave. I always make sure I maintain the head/blade assembly. I clean them regularly with alcohol and add a drop of razor oil to each blade assembly. I have never really understood the Norelco’s floating head assembly. Why is the floating head concept supposed to be so great? I find that a static or non-moving head does a much better job at shaving. I’m sure that this head/blade assembly will last me until the razor batteries die. They can be replaced but by then I will probably just buy a new razor. Foil razors are the best, but they are expensive for the good ones and the replacement parts are expensive. Most electric razors from any brand are made in Asia today. If you really look hard, you can find ones made in Germany or Switzerland.

Some cutters I ordered are fake but some are good; wonder how Amazon can prevent fakes from being supplied

Have been using Philips/Norelco for long (nearly 15 yrs) and cannot seem to live w/o them now; I feel them better than even razor blade shaving. But recently Philips/Norelco have changed their design and not sure of the new models, seem to make more noise and are pricy even more and do not know how reliable they are, the older models are good and I go look for them in Internet. Wanted to look for Braun/Panasonic shavers but still managing to repair/replace my older models of Philips shavers so continuing with them and so buying these heads. This one with the 3 cutting rings are good. Since these heads are very expensive, now I am resorting to buying old model shavers that come on offer that have these heads so we can use these Heads and other spares as needed at a much lower total cost of ownership (I have experienced the motor spindle spoiled two times and have replaced it myself, another instance had battery go off and then a charger died). All in all good product, wish Philips/Norelco will bring back older better models though with this kind of cutting heads.

Costly Replacement Heads But They Do The Job

 on March 3, 2013

I recently purchased these replacement heads for my Philips Norelco Model 8240XL, after having previously purchased them on Amazon just shy of two years ago. That previous set endured daily use on my semi-heavy facial hair growth. I use my electric razor as a preshaver to remove my longer facial hair down to the stubble so that I can then obtain a completely smooth shave with a manual 4-blade razor. This method works for me, at least, and results in much less irritation because there is then far less chance of me catching or tugging the longer hairs with my manual razor.

Just like new shaver with these!

 on September 1, 2016

Like many other people, I vacillated between purchasing new shaver heads or just buying a new shaver. I just bought a new shaver for a gift that cost about half of what these heads cost! But in the end I bought these for my 9160xl that has been a great shaver since its purchase in 2007. I think this is the second set of replacement heads in that nine year period! My shaver was getting a bit noisier recently and I noticed I had to make more passes while shaving to do the same job. I thought maybe the motor was to blame but I was wrong as when I put in these new blades and foils, the shaver immediately quieted down and my shave was very quickly done. Noticed the new blades were a bit harsh on my skin, but then I remembered that it takes around three weeks for the blades to break in to a persons face. Even though my skin was a bit irritated, the shave itself was extremely close and blade smooth. Norelco is the best shaver for me, with these blades also being the best for me (I’ve tried hq8, comfort cut, and hq56 super lift and cut, to mention only some).

My favorite Shaver Head

 on May 30, 2014

I have a Norelco razor that I bought about a year ago and it came with the HQ9 heads. I bought these so I would have a replacement when I needed it. Norelco recommends changing heads once a year but I have gone years and years without changing heads in the past. When I finally do, I realize how much better the shaver works with new heads. I also bought a razor with the HQ8 head and I like it very much but still prefer the one with the HQ9. I have used Norelco razors for about 60 years. I believe the HQ9 gives me the closest and most comfortable shave of all the heads I have used. I also have an old razor with the HQ56 head. I have had it so long that I have replaced the batteries about 4 times and I think the motor brushes are wearing out. It was an excellent razor. I have replaced the heads on it about three times but the current ones are so old that I can’t fairly compare them to the heads on the two newest razors. I do plan to put a new set of HQ56 heads on it to make a fair comparison.
