Product Description

Product Description

Keep a close shave

Change heads every 2 years for best results

Within one year your shaver heads cut 9 million hairs on your face. For maximum shaving performance, it is recommended to replace your shaving unit once every 2 years. The unique ultratrack heads combine channels to catch the longer hairs, slots to catch the normal hairs, and holes to catch the shortest stubble.

Compatibility information

This head is compatible with Philips SensoTouch 3D RQ12-- series models. Please see the chart below to determine the correct replacement head for your shaver.

Highlights

Philips
GyroFlex 3D Technology for comfort and performance

The RQ12 SensoTouch 3D head gives you the ultimate shaving experience. Its GyroFlex 3D system has three dynamic parts that move independently, flexing outward, pivoting around, and tilting inward to follow the natural contours of your face.

Philips
Comfortably shaves wet or dry

SensoTouch heads let you shave any way you want. The Aquatec seal gives you the option of either a comfortable dry shave or a refreshing wet shave with shaving cream or gel.

Philips
UltraPrecision heads shave closer in less strokes

UltraTrack shaving heads catch every hair in just a few strokes with three specialised shaving tracks: slots for long hairs, channels for longer hairs, and holes for short stubble.

Cuts long hairs and short stubble

The UltraTrack shaving system is designed to effectively shave both longer hairs and short stubble for precise results and a smooth finish. Flexing heads stay in close contact with your skin, while the pivoting neck adds an extra dimension of movement - all giving you a close, fast and comfortable shave.

Philips
Super Lift and Cut Technology provides a close shave

The replacement shaving unit is equipped with the patented Super Lift and Cut System which is designed to give you a close and comfortable shave as the first blade lifts while the second blade cuts comfortably below skin level.

Philips
Low friction skinglide surface for an extra smooth shave

The low-friction SkinGlide shaving surface slides smoothly along your skin for a close, easy shave.

Philips
Reset your existing shaver to new. Replace every 2 years for best results - easy click off, click on

Replace the shaving head every year to keep your shaves close and comfortable. The RQ12 head easily clicks on and off the unit for simple replacement.

• Switch off the shaver and disconnect it from the power outlet.
• Remove the Shaving Head Unit from the shaver by pulling it straight up away from the shaver.
• Place new Shaving Head Unit back on the shaver and push down until you hear a click. The Shaving Head Unit will only fit correctly in one position on shaver. Make sure to align the raised notch on the Shaving Head Unit (1) with the slot inside the top of shaver (2).

    What Philips don't want you to know. My Philips RQ10 3 head triple track finally gave up the ghost after many years faithful service. Looking for replacement I was offered a RQ11 sensor touch 2D 3 head with clip on beard trimmer for £89 or RQ12 3D 3 head with clip on beard trimmer for £180. This seemed a massive amount for a upgraded head so took the 2D. What I didn't know was the 2D has only a single track per head which gives a very basic shave at best as well as taking twice as long. Reading the Amazon threads I realise the RQ12 3D replacement head is triple tracked and has the exact same clip fittings. Bought for £40 (Amazon) and bingo now have a wonderful fast comfortable close shave.

    I took a little punt on these heads as I have an old Arcitec shaver that takes rq10 heads. I had read in a review that the RQ12 heads do fit on and that they were a better cut. I can confirm that they do fit and that the cut is marginally better. The heads are larger and I find they knock off slightly easier.

    I started using a Philips RQ1260 SensoTouch GyroFlex 3D Rechargeable Rotary Shaver in April 2011 and it has converted me to this type of shave. Before that I had been using a razor and wet shave for many years - but this convinced me to change. A close shave in less time and with no chance of nicks or cuts.

    This has got a lot of use and I was noticing a slight difference in how well it was working - taking longer and not catching everything first time. So I was delighted to see that Amazon was stocking these replacement heads at a reasonable price. It was simplicity itself to change the heads over and I noticed a big difference straight away - back to how it was when new.

    I can't fault this replacement product and am very happy to have the shaver back to its very best. I hope that Amazon keep stocking these and I can't recommend it highly enough.

    This unit also fits the older RQ10 series shaver, not something Philips make well known. Gives a much better shave than the original but the old head cover will no longer fit. It is also a bit of a tight fit in the charging cradle with the head fitted, but the cover will still fit for travel, easier to just remove head when charging. Not tried in autoclean unit so do not know if it still fits in that.

    The new head returned my shaver to its original state. The old head, over about 2.5 years, had become very gradually slacker. Hardly surprising considering the wear it had had over that time. Even the old head was better than my earlier shavers (about 52 years of electric shaving), closer and more comfortable. The new head put me back to the shaver I bought.

    Always been a 'safety razor' fan until I bought the Philips RQ Senso-touch razor 2 years ago.
    The blades have been fantastic and this replacement is even sharper.
    Very good value for money when compared with wet razor blades.........................good purchase.

    I had the few ARCitec shavers in the past few years and always looked at those upgrade models coming from Philips with an interested eye, would they be any better??
    The fact of the matter is that, as other people said, it is an upgrade that Philips doesn't want you to know about.
    It is a RQ12xx series head that fits perfectly into an RQ10xx/RQ11xx body and suddenly you have the latest and greatest.

    The verdict is still out if it performs better then the RQ10/40 or the RQ10/50 which are the original replacement shaver heads but
    it felt like a smother shave (also had something to do with the fact that it was brand new !!).

    The downside for installing this shaver head on your old RQ10xx/RQ11xx shaver is that you can no longer use the Jet clean stand /charger which came with you shaver.
    The new shaver head is too big and get stuck when the down motion is initiated, hence only 4 stars...

    I've had the RQ1280 for about 2 years now, and for the last few months have noticed the performance has dropped off, not shaving as well as it should. Bought this and immediately it felt like a new razor (unsurprisingly). Its expensive, but it is a complicated unit I suppose, and replacing it every 18months to 2 years is not too bad.
