As Germany’s number 1 shaver brand for precision engineering, Braun continues breaking ground with its newest PRO+ line, starting with the Series 9 9567cc. Dubbed Braun’s most efficient shaver yet, the 9567cc features a fully adaptive shaver head with eight-direction SmartFlexPRO technology.

Integrated sensors continually measure beard density and automatically optimize power for efficient, yet gentle trimming. Braun packs comfort and convenience into an intuitive AutoSensePRO mode that adapts to your personal shaving style for custom comfort.

Unique to the PRO+ line is Braun’s innovative SkinGuard technology built to protect men with sensitive skin prone to irritation. The extra layer actively glides over the skin while cutting hairs as close as 0.05mm for Braun’s smoothest, flush finish yet.

As Braun’s most advanced foil shaver, the Series 9 PRO+ tackles a week’s worth of beard growth without compromise. The new shaver fits perfectly into your existing Clean&Charge station for a hygienic clean and charge in as little as 1 hour.
