    Customer review from the Amazon Vine™ Program (What’s this?)

    My four-year-old son is a typical whirling dervish when I try to cut his hair (but he’s a little angel when I take him to a professional barber–go figure). In the past, when I’ve done the cutting, I’ve used the adult clippers that I use on my own head. So, I thought perhaps he’d be a little more accommodating if I were use something like the Philips model. Mmmn, not so much.

    Just to make clear what I’m comparing the Philips model to: I use a Forfex clippers model on my own head; it cost about $120 or so, is rechargeable/cordless, and comes with lots of attachments. Before I owned that, I had a cheapo Wahl model, maybe $25; it had a cord, got very hot, and made loud zapping noises when I turned it on. My parents had one just like it when I was a kid, and I remembered being scared by that zapping.

    The Philips model *is* quiet–but no quieter than the Forfex model. I’ll go out on a limb and say that most rechargeable clippers are going to be of similar quietness.

    It is very nice that you only have to worry about two adjustment add-ons (the slide-on adapters that let you set the length of hair cut, from 1 inch to 1-3/4 inch with one adapter, and from 1/8th inch to 7/8ths inch with the other adapter). But the adapters seem pretty flimsy to me.

    Furthermore, the product description talks about “Rounded tips [that] protect skin and ensure a comfortable cutting experience,” and that’s true, but only if you keep the adapters on. On the smaller adapter you can get down to 1/8th inch, and that sounds pretty close, but it didn’t get close enough around the ears. So, I removed the adapter to trim around the ears, and of course, when Junior did his Linda Blair imitation, I nicked him.

    With the Forfex model I use, you can adjust the cutting depth without an adapter from 0.8mm to 2.8mm. On the Philips, without the adapter, I’d estimate that the minimum cut is about 0.8mm too–but you can’t adjust it any higher. The minimum cutting depth with the smaller adapter is 1/8th inch, which converts to about 3.0mm. So, you can either cut at 3.0mm and avoid nicks, or cut at 0.8mm and risk it–and nothing in between.

    I do like that it’s a pretty nice kit, with the shawl (er, “stylist’s cape”), storage pouch, etc.

    I realize that’s it’s not a fair comparison between a $40 product at a $120 product, but I did find other cordless/rechargeable products on Amazon in the same general price range–even one made by Philips: Philips Norelco QC5055 Power Hair Clipper. Perhaps they’re not *quite* as kid-friendly, but I don’t think the difference is huge.

    My 4 year old is autistic and having his hair cut is a traumatic event. These are quiet, easy to use and work well. Made hair cutting time much easier for everyone!!!
