    Clean cuts, quality build, with caveats for cord

    This clipper is a high-end model in Wahl's lineup. The materials are of good quality and the build feels very solid. As a bonus, it is made in the USA. The cutting action is powerful and it is easy to make clean cuts with this clipper. The guides are good and keep their shape to provide more consistent cuts. Note that the superior cutting action is not without some caveats to be aware of. This clipper has a power cord, which is a trade-off compared to clippers that are cordless. Also, the consistency in the guides comes at the inconvenience of having to clip and unclip among the guides--a trade-off compared to clippers that have adjustable guides that are more convenient but also more prone to accidental adjustments. Naturally the prospective buyer needs to decide the right trade-offs to take.

    Not working straight out of box

    I bought these clippers and unfortunately discarded the PO so I cannot return them. We have used them once and after only two swipes across my husbands head they sounded like they were losing power. We originally thought perhaps we needed to adjust the power screw but upon closer inspection discovered that the teeth were not moving and the head looked crooked. We tried numerous times to adjust the head to a straight position but after tightening the screws as tight as we could after a couple of seconds of running the head would move to a crooked position again and the teeth would quit moving. The product looked great out of the box but will never, ever again buy a Wahl product again.

    I actually have a Wahl clipper that is about 20 years old but I've lost many of the attachments. It still works, but figured it was time to buy another. This one feels nice and cuts great. Plus the attachments work on my old Wahl clipper as well! The Wahl Youtube videos are also great at teaching how to cut hair and have made it easy for me to start cutting my own hair with great results. It already paid for itself after cutting my own hair once.

    Broken combs

    I read an online review that said these were the best clippers for most people. Unfortunately, I was never able to try them out. The first set I bought had a comb with a broken tooth. I exchanged the clippers for another set, and the replacement ALSO has a comb with a broken tooth! If the combs could break a tooth so easily while brand new, I could only imagine what would happen during normal use. Well, 2 strikes = refund.

    I picked up these clippers from a review I saw on YouTube. However, once I purchase them they were no better or worse than any of the hair clippers I bought in the past several years. The one thing that I did like about these clippers is that they came with a lot of combs and guards that can help you style any haircut. I would recommend these for anyone looking for a good pair of clippers but they were just not for me .

    Excellent Hair Clipper

    I bought this to replace my old trusty clipper that died after 20 years. I like the feel of this new one- it is solidly built and the attachments seem to be built to last as well. The attachments feel secure when on the clipper and I do not worry about then falling off while I cut my hair ( which has happened in the past with other brands). I do not like the on/off switch- it is too old-school and cumbersome.

    I picked up the Wahl - Elite Pro Hair Clipper to replace my old Wahl clippers that I had for a few years. The one thing that I strongly suggest that you do, is use the oil that it comes with & use it to clean off the blades before the 1st use. The blades were kind of dirty & needed to be cleaned. I've used it several times already & so far, so good.

    Doesn't Cut Low Enough

    If you want a close shave; this isn't the one for you. However, if you want to shape up and get alot of different options for guards. This is the one. There are alot of guards but I can never get down close to his scalp enough. I cut my boyfriends hair with these and I'm horrible at it so maybe I dont know what Im saying

    BUYER BEWARE of this awesome clipper set

    I paid the extra $$ for this Pro set and I am pleased with it. The clipper guards are way sturdier then my last set. I do like the actual stop on feature on the guards which prevent them from coming off while using them. That’s a smart design which prevents a regular touch up haircut and turning into a “OH MAN!!!, time to buzz it all off” moment.

    The clippers are nice. The attachments have metal clips instead of plastic. There is even an additional size that we needed. The capes material is cheap and it is too small for an adult. Will work well for a child. The scissors are stiff and hurt the fingers enough to leave an indentation. For the price the kit is worth it. Just buy a better cape and scissors.

    Clippers are heavy duty, really well made. Comes with everything I need and probably will last a very long time. Works exceptionally well. I have used it may times because I like my hair very short, great precision cuts and really easy to use, clean and maintain. Best Buy priced matched a competitor's great price, very happy with my purchase.

    I don’t have a lot of experience with hair clippers, but this product works as expected. My haircuts have been pretty simple lately; short. I figured I could start cutting my own hair, this product has already paid for itself in what I’m saving from paying someone else to do it.

    I bought these clippers when I saw them on sale at Best Buy. Had been shopping around for a while for a good set for a reasonable price. They work great. What I like most about them is that the guards have metal attachments instead of plastic which will make them last longer. A must have!!!

    These are the best clippers I’ve ever had. My wife has been cutting my hair for 8 years now and these by far are the best. Extremely smooth cut with no pulling the hair and guards that are made from quality materials.

    I have been saving money and cutting my own hair and my childrens hair for a few years now and these are the best clippers I have ever owned. They cut so smoothly and leave a nice taper on the sides.

    I had a pair of clippers for 15 years. I finally had to buy a new set. These were the same price as the ones I bought 15 years ago but are so much better! It truly will save you hundreds of dollars if not more if you take care of them! Love the case as well

    I just bought a new Wahl clipper because of the brand name. I had an old Wahl, given to me by my grandmother who used to cut my hair with it 55 yrs ago. If this one lasts half as long, I won't need to buy another.

    I have been saving at least $50/month, for 5 months now, from getting haircut outside because I can just have my wife cut my hair at home. Everything I need in a small package that I can just stick it under the bathroom sink after done using it. Runs smooth so far.
