Where can I buy a Braun 9290cc or 9295cc in Canada?
Not even Braun's site seems to sell it in Canada, we seem to be stuck with the older model, which is several years old.
I was hoping someone had an idea of a store that could carry it.

Braun does however sell the updated razor head in Canada, so buying the 9090 with the new 92S gets you almost the same razor.

I have the same problem. I have hard beard and my 9095c missed a lot areas. To fix this issue I bought a Philips trimmer. I use the trimmer before using the Braun. I get much better results with this workaround.badrah wrote: ↑Aug 5th, 2017 12:40 amAbout 2 weeks now using 9295cc shaver and unfortunately, I'm so disappointed.
I first got the 3 series back in April which was ok but a bit slow and tricky on the neck. Was what actually encouraged me to go for the 9-series assuming a superior performance with the claimed 5 cutting elements. I can definitely say, the 3 series was much better. I totally don't understand why I pay such premium for a worse performance (or same at best).
The 9295 is missing flat hairs not only on the neck but even on very easy areas like the cheek. Something that even the 3 series was picking up very easily which I regret returning.
What made even worse, now that I already used the money back guarantee program returning the 3-series, I discovered that I can't return the 9295cc one. After I already bought the new shaver and while I was inquiring about the refund of the 3-series over the phone, a recored message mentioned that the money back program can only be used once per household. It was never mentioned anywhere and was not even mentioned when I returned the 3-series one. Called customer support and after a 40 min call, escalations and waiting on hold, trying to explain that it was never mentioned anywhere and that I wouldn't have returned the first one before trying the 9-series, their final response was "we're sorry but we can't do anything about it". I could have even lost this one if I didn't discover such rule by total coincidence and just shipped it back right away.
Now I'm stuck with a frustrating shaver that I paid about CAD450 for. Total disappointment and frustration.
Anyways, I wouldn't recommend buying the 9-series at all. Complete waste of money. The 3-series was giving even better performance.
To be fair, the only advantage I can think of, the head of the 9-series should last longer (18-month is claimed). While the 3-series was supposed to last 3-months or so as far as I recall. To me, given the price difference (both the shaver and the head), still doesn't worth or justify the premium price of the 9-series.

Have you tried using the trimmer on the back of 9 before shaving? That usually works for me. I’m coming from a series 7 that I bought 10 years ago and the 9 is not as good but good enough for me. I never tried the series 3 so I can’t compare.

No. I've found that the trimmer usually leaves behind a beard texture that makes the 9095 clean up pretty smoothly. I've found best results with dry use on the Braun. My Philips trimmer is for dry use only. Any small spots lefts behind which is a rare case is usually cleaned up by a good old Gillette Mach 3 turbo.
