Brio Bearscape Detailed Overview

So what makes the Brio Beardscape different is the abundance of features that come directly on the trimmer.

Innovative Blades

brio-beardscape-trimmer-2.jpg

Right from the top, we’re introduced to ceramic blades, paired with a gold finished titanium rake, precision ground to match perfectly. Brio touts these ceramic plates as being four times harder than stainless steel, creating less friction and heat and being quieter than metal.

Moving down the unit, the Brio Beardscape comes with an integrated one millimetre to 1.9 millimetre blade height adjustment with 0.3 millimetre height transitions in between. These are controlled with the lever lock button and micro adjust lever.

Next feature is a speed control adjustment, which allows you to increase or decrease the RPM speed of the blade from 5,000 RPM to 7,000 RPM. Then an on/off button and convenient LCD display sit just below.

The Display

Within the LCD you will first notice five circles at the top of the display. These show the load and the clipping head as the clipper may become clogged with hair or needle oil. And the first three circles display a load state under normal use, while if the fourth and fifth circles light up, the clipping head must be cleaned and oiled. This indicator is followed by an RPM speed and remaining charge time display based on the speed setting of the trimmer. This will show differing amounts of battery time remaining.

The Battery

The Brio Beardscape beard trimmer pumps with an extra large capacity lithium ion battery. It will last up to four hours based at a full three hour charge. It can be charged on the base or plugged in while in use, even if the battery’s empty.

The Brio Beardscape trimmer can be used for hair, beard, and any manscaping project. It’s noted by Brio to never run the blades under water because they only like oil.

The Real Experience

There’s a lot of pros with this unit, but there’s also a some cons in there.

Pros:

  • The Brio trimmer has the different RPM speeds down. It goes from 5,000 RPMs up to 7,000 RPMs. That’s helpful if you’re trying to cut into the thicker hair and you want to maintain that consistent cutting speed.
  • The display is very nice. And it tells you the RPMs, how much time is left in minutes, as well as it gives those indicators, the circle indicators at the top.
  • It’s a smart kind of technology to inform you when it needs to be cleaned or when you need to put oil on it.
  • It also has the charging stand, which is nice. You can plug the trimmer in and you can use. It feels like it’s got a good weight to it and my hand.
  • The comb attachments are double sided so you know they’re saving you space instead of having eight of these things, you only need four of them.

Cons:

  • No any kind of foil shaver attachment like you’ll see on a Philips Norelco Multigroom 7000 or the Wahl Lithium Ion.
  • As far as getting into really tight spaces, it may appear to be hard with this trimmer.

The Verdict

If you have a long beard, this is perfect for you. The speed and RPMs are great, also the digital display. They can tell the time that’s left. But Philips Norelco multigroom 7000 and the Wahl Lithium Ion plus become serious competitors in terms of the precision on your face.
