    Colour Name: HQ56/50 - Super Reflex Verified Purchase
    I have used Philips rotary shavers all my adult life and have looked to buy head units regularly on my various shavers at some time in their life, so it came as no surprise that the quoted HQ55 replacement shaving heads for my shaver are no longer made - I have always had a sneaking feeling Philips change the spares numbering of the heads the moment they put the shaver out on the market. I have also bought my replacement heads, until today, from large high street chemist chains where I could check if I was getting the correct blades by looking to see if the ones on sale would fit by looking on the box's (card's) packaging and, like some of the other reviewers have mentioned here, have wondered (and suffered from) how high the cost of the replacement heads were sold at, often resulting in me buying a new shaver as this seemed better value for money. I could not believe the "low" price that replacement heads were being offered at at Amazon but it had to worth a go and so I decided to try buying this item through Amazon for the first time! Having satisfied myself that my HQ55 heads were now HQ56 heads and that these were on offer at a very pleasing price, I ordered and waited their arrival with some trepidation. I need not have worried. They came packaged as advertised in their original Philips box and "bullet proof" plastic envelope, the box told me they would fit my razor which they did without a problem and made my shaving with the razor pleasant again!

    Philips point out that "every year your blades travel to the heights of Mt Everest 49 times" and I can testify changing the heads periodically is a good idea for the maintenance of one's complexion and the time you spend on shaving, but not if the price of the heads are seemingly nearly the price of a new shaver. So, in one foul swoop, you have enabled me to be kinder to the environment by not throwing out a perfectly good razor and be kind to my face. Nice one Amazon.

    Colour Name: HQ8/50 - Sensotec Verified Purchase
    I was given the Williams F1 electric razor for Christmas two years ago so now was about the right time to replace the heads. I was starting to get a rash on my neck after every shave so I decided to replace the heads with these ones. Away went the rash and in came a smooth face. Very impressed!

    Colour Name: RQ10/50 - Arcitec Verified Purchase
    The one I've been sent is an original Philips part. It is in a box that fits through an ordinary letterbox, (that's a plus) with all the correct Philips logo etc as per their web site for the RQ10 head. Inside is a clear ridged plastic shaped sealed container that requires cutting open so you know you've not got a returned item. There is also a white plastic tracing tag probably to ensure the packet goes in the correct box. I've checked the item and it does have the three blade cutting head, 12 on the outer, 6 in the middle & 3 on the inner. I've found it's better to strip the head down once every couple of months for a really good wash out and you can practice this on your old head. All you need is a small flat watch makers screwdriver. Flip open one of the three heads and on the inside were you griped it with you thumb & finger you will see a black plastic clip 1 by 3 cm. Push the screwdriver to the side of each of these clips, careful not to damage the silver wire and edge of metal that's visible to the side. If both clips are free the inner black plastic rim will lift up and flip off. The outer plastic rim will drop downwards. Warning, be very careful when cleaning the cutters. They are very sharp and have a thin secondary foil lifting blade that will bend if you use a brush or tweezers when cleaning or towel/cloth to dry. Best to just wash under running water a blow hard on the cutters to dry. The rest can be washed & dried as you wish. If you thought the head was clean without this strip down you'll be surprised how much is still clogging the inner blades. Keep the old parts for spares; you've got the box to keep them in. I've used the original head for some 5 years and only just found the need to replace it. As expected new one has a sharper cut and my one runs smoothly.Read more ›

    I needed to renew the shaving heads of my shaver. At my local Boots and on other sights they cost nearly as much as a new shaver.

    I found these on Amazon at 40% the price of other sources and they are the genuine product and just what I needed.

    Even better, was the service from Amazon. I ordered normal delivery and got me purchase the next day.

    Colour Name: RQ11/50 - Gyro Flex für SensoTouch 2D Verified Purchase
    I bought this as one of the springs had broken within the head. It now works just as new. I never noticed how blunt my razor had become.Well recommended as it comes as a whole head unit and you're not mucking about with fiddly parts.

    Colour Name: RQ11/50 - Gyro Flex für SensoTouch 2D Verified Purchase
    I purchased these a few weeks ago and even after allowing a couple of weeks to bed in they don't perform any better than my the 2 1/2 year old originals. The finish is dull compared with the original bright chrome and the box is labelled Norelco which is the USA division of Philips. The packaging recommends to replace the head every year. Philips Europe recommend every 2 years. Also the printing on some of the internal papers was not of the highest quality. I have finished up buying a a new RQ11 series razor at a good price which shaves much closer and smoother. All in all I have my doubts about the quality/authenticity of this product.
