Top Of The Line Beard Trimmer (2017) 5 Lux Picks
Beard trimmers have gotten stupidly good over the years. Although the advancements in beard trimming tech may not be as huge and wild as improvements being made with the likes of smartphones, cars, and computers, there have still been plenty of worthy upgrades as time has gone on. As a result of this, finding a top of the line beard trimmer is no longer limited to looking through a small handful of options.
Premium/high-end beard trimmers are becoming more and more common, and as such, finding the perfect beard trimmer that works for you can sometimes be quite a bit of a challenge that you may or may not be ready for.
No matter your stance, this is something that we’ve been prepping for quite some time.
We’ve gone through the premium bread trimmer market with a fine-tooth comb and have come up with our top 5 picks for the best top of the line beard trimmer options. You’re going to spend a fair bit of cash for these gadgets, but if your wallet allows for it, these trimmers are well worth the price of admission.
5. Philips Norelco Beard Trimmer 7200
This list isn’t in any particular order, but we couldn’t think of a better trimmer to kick it off with than the Philips Norelco Beard Trimmer 7200. Philips is one of the most iconic names in the men’s grooming world, and the 7200 is currently one of the company’s best trimmers available.
First off, the overall look and appearance of the 7200 is quite stunning. This is something that won’t be a big deal for everyone, but if looks are important to you, the Beard Trimmer 7200 won’t disappoint. The blades present on the 7200 are “maintenance-ready” as Philips says with their marketing, and this essentially means that they should easily last you for a few months without any attention needing to be put to them.
Philips’ famous vacuum system is present on the 7200, meaning that the trimmer is able to pick up after itself while giving you one of the best cuts in the business. The eighteen different length settings should be more than enough to get the style you’re looking for, and being able to get a full hour of use on one single charge is just the icing on an already great cake.
4. Braun BT5090 Beard Trimmer
The Beard Trimmer 7200 isn’t an easy device to follow, but Braun does a very commendable job at doing so with the BT5090 Beard Trimmer. This is the best beard trimmer on this list if your main use has to do with styling your facial hair. The BT5090’s 25 settings, trimming combs, and results will be perfect for you, plus it's about 4 times more accurate than any competing trimmer.
Braun’s BT5090 looks nice from an aesthetic point of view, and cleaning the trimmer is incredibly easy as turning on some water and running the blades through it easily gets rid of any unwanted hair and other debris.
Philips doesn’t mess around with the battery life of the 7200, but Braun kicks things up a notch with its dual-battery system. Along with being able to run for one hour of use after being charged up for just 50 minutes, plugging the BT5090 in for only 5 minutes will provide you with enough juice for one full trim — something that can prove to be incredibly useful when you’re in a rush or hurry in the morning.
3. Wahl Lithium Ion All-In-One Grooming Kit
Wahl’s Lithium Ion All-In-One Grooming Kit is the next option on this list, and while it may feature a noticeably lower price than the previous two options, don’t let the affordable nature fool you — this is still a seriously impressive beard trimmer.
Included with the Wahl trimmer are three different beard guides, a nose/brow detailer, dual foil shaver, and T-blade with three additional guide combs. Accuracy levels for your cuts and trims will be very solid with Wahl’s option, and the amount of torque that’s present here is about two times as strong as competing gadgets. That right there makes this one of the best options if you have quite a lot of facial hair to work with, and the added power is simply a joy to use.
And if you thought the battery life on the Braun BT5090 was impressive, just wait until you mess around with Wahl’s trimmer. Plugging the device in for only 5 minutes will deliver you with a whopping one hour of use time. That’s seriously impressive, and the lower cost of this trimmer makes it that much more impressive.
2. TRYM II
If looks could kill, the TRYM II would be a mass-murder. That may not be the most conventional analogy around, but it’s the best way to describe how damn good the TRMY II looks. It’s incredibly sleek and minimalistic, and it functions as both a hair, mustache, body and head trimmer. That’s a whole lot of functionality in such a great-looking package, and this is what makes the TRMY II so special.
The blade that is featured on the TRYM II is rated to be extremely effective while still being easy on your skin, a ton of included extras are included with the unit, and it even features a price tag that’s lower than the Wahl trimmer.
We get that a low price isn’t the most worrisome concern when looking at top of the line trimmers, but being able to snag so much trimmer at such a low price is something that we don’t think anyone will complain about.
1. Philips Norelco OneBlade
Last but certainly not least on this list is the Philips Norelco OneBlade. This trimmer is quite a bit different than the 7200 at the top of our list, but the doesn’t make this a poor choice. In fact, it’s one of our favorite trimmers around.
The Norelco OneBlade doesn’t cut as close to your skin as traditional trimmers, and while that may sound like a downside at first, this enables the OneBlade to cut your hair while also keeping your skin as comfortable and irritation-free as possible.
The pivoting head of the OneBlade allows the trimmer to evenly follow the natural contours of your face, and the blade itself is capable of trimming, edging, and shaving. The included battery is rated to provide around 45 minutes of use time after an 8 hour charge, and you’ve also got full waterproofing so that you can shave both wet and dry.
No matter which of these beard trimmers you decide to go with, know that you’re getting something very special. These are the best of the best when it comes to beard trimmers that are currently available on the market, and that means that you won’t be disappointed no matter which trimmer ends up being the trimmer for you.
