Panasonic ARC5 Premium Shaver

Cutting edge sensor technology for an incredibly close shave

Panasonic's intelligent shaving technology provides a smoother, more comfortable result. The Arc5's flexible16-D shaving head keeps continuous, comfortable contact with skin, while a responsive shaving sensor reduces irritation and a high-performance linear motor provides a fast, powerful shave.

Unique 5-Blade Shaving System

Durable stainless steel foils and blades capture all whisker types, even short and flat-lying hairs for a efficient shave with less repeat strokes.

30° blades for clean cutting

Panasonic has developed ultra-sharp, nano-polished, inner blades honed to 30° for exceedingly smooth results.

High-performance linear motor

The LV67's 14,000 CPM motor performs 70,000 cross-cuts per minute for a fast, powerful shave.

Active beard density sensor

Responsive sensor technology detects beard densities 220 times/second and adjust power 14 times/second to reduce pull and irritation for more comfort.

Flexible pivoting head for superior coverage

This Panasonic Arc5's flexible shaving head pivots effortlessly in 16 directions independently to follow and conform to the skin's natural contours, keeping the shaver head in close, cushioned contact with the face, neck, chin and jawline. Works excellent with legs too!

Wet/dry convenience

A waterproof design lets you shave dry directly on skin or with shaving cream (or gel) in or out of the shower.

Pop-up detail trimmer

The built-in precision trimmer details sideburns and mustaches quickly to finish your shave.

Lasting lithium-ion battery

A full, one-hour charge provides up to 45 minutes of use. A 3-minute quick charge provides one shave. The LED display shows status and battery life.

Waterproof and washable

Simply remove the outer foil section, turn the shaver on to expel hair while rinsing the shaver under running water for easy, hygienic maintenance.

Keep your shaver sharp

We recommend replacing foil once a year and blades every 2 years. Outer foil (WES9173); Inner blades (WES9170). Foil & blade combo (WES9032P)

    Best shaver I have ever had. I get a good, clean shave, fast and easy. The battery lasts a long time.

    Panasonic shaver review.

    It's nice. A bit of a learning curve since I've always used a rotary shaver or a blade.

    It's a Winner!

    I bought this for a Christmas gift for my husband based on the reviews and comparisons with other major name brands. The head is rather large and I was concerned that it would be awkward to use, but my husband reports that the razor works well and provides a much closer shave than his previous model (different brand). We ordered off of the Panasonic website rather than a retail site like Amazon, so the only thing to note is that it came in a basic brown box that was a bit underwhelming for a gift. Not sure if other sites offer more typical retail packaging. I also love the cherry red color--something different than all the other razors.

    Not as advanced as promised

    I have owned and used a ES8243 wet/dry shaver for years. The battery is worn and will not hold a charge for long. So instead of replacing the battery along with the blades and foil I figured the cost would exceed the the purchase of a new shaver. But in all truth this old shaver is superior to the new one. Yes the ARC5 has more cutting heads, but it does not shave any closer or faster than my old one. The ES8243 was so superior to the Norelco and Braun at the time that I was amazed that I could get a shave with an electric razor as good or better then a safety razor. I’ll keep and use the ARC5 but it’s not any better then my old Panasonic.

    Fourth one

    This is my fourth or fifth Panasonic wet/dry shaver. I have owned Braun and Norelco/Philips shavers in the past, though not the wet-dry kind (if they even make them), and this one easily outperforms them. Closer shave all around.
