The old 32S and 32B differed only in colour: silver and black. The new 32S with microcomb has the lock mechanism for lowering the front foil (it's on both foils but the shaver body only locks the front one), whereas the new 32B with microcomb no longer has this ability. The color. 32B is black while 32s is silver.
Generally, with good cleaning habits and an average shaving frequency, Braun recommends changing foil and cutter block every 18 months.
Almost every Braun shaver can be rinsed quickly and easily under running hot water. The cleaning effect can be improved by using a bit of standard liquid soap. And another tip: to give your shaver optimal care, you should put a drop of oil on the cutter block once in a while.
Basically, all you need to do is to click the electric shaver into the station, shaver head down. The station will then pump the cleaning fluid past the shaver head. That fluid is alcohol-based and effectively removes hairs, skin flakes, and other debris. Next, the heating element rapidly dries the shaver head.
The cutting mechanism lifts hair follicles up and away from the skin so you get a clean cut with each stroke, even if your hairs grow in different directions. The Braun Series 9 9370cc is by far the most luxurious shaver I've used and is well-deserving of its spot as the best high-end razor in our buying guide.
Make sure you regularly change the blades and/or foils on your razor. After a while, these will start to break down and dull. A dull blade is the best way to get a nick or nasty cut and remember, if you aren't regularly cleaning the blades, bacteria can cause an infection.
With its foil shaving system, Braun is better for those who prefer a more traditional shaving style akin to a manual razor. However, if you want a razor that reliably contours to your face and you don't mind the unique circular style of shaving, a Philips razor may be a better option.
All Braun shavers are watertight which means the shaver head can be rinsed under running water for easy cleaning. However, ONLY Braun shavers that are specifically designated as Wet & Dry (W&D) models can be used in the shower or bath.
Manufacturers recommend changing the foils and blades of your electric shaver every 12 to 18 months. But you might find yours need replacing sooner than this. Get into the habit of looking over your blades and foil regularly so you can spot any noticeable wear before it causes bigger issues.
Press the release button near the shaver head and remove the foil and cutter cassette. Set the shaver components in a clean area to air-dry. If you manually clean the shaver on a regular basis, apply a drop of machine oil to the cutter cassette and foil once a week.
See the "Keeping Your Shaver In Top Shape" section in the Series 7 online manual. It states that the orange light in the display appears when the shaver head is worn and should be replaced (after around 18 months of use.)
The Series 5, and particularly the 5090cc/5190cc reviewed here with its reasonable price and excellent cleaning station represent a strong option for anyone looking to buy a quality foil shaver without a premium price tag. The Braun Series 5 works great when used for shaving daily or every other day.

Braun is a well-known maker of men's electric shavers. They're a great option when looking for something not “Made in China”, as they still design and manufacturer their products in Germany.
