Here we have the older brother of the QT4000 model. It may not be obvious right away how they differ, but there are some improvements that make it worth the extra ~$10.

This QT4014 basks in simplicity and has a great no-fuss design. Comfortable to hold and easy to change length settings, this guy also features titanium, self sharpening, skin friendly blades that are rounded to avoid scraping, all while giving you a pull-free precision shave.

The Written Review

Though it may be a simple design with no attachments, this doesn’t mean it won’t have what you need. The dial on the front of the trimmer is easily changeable with your thumb to get the length where you want it, when you want it. All without fussing to find the right comb guard. The length is adjustable in an impressive 20 lengths between 0.5mm-10mm (in 0.5mm increments). This lets you get the perfect shape and size hair, even for your mustache, sideburns, and cleaning up any edges.

Thankfully, with this model, you won’t have the 10 hour charging time like the QT4000. You’ll be able to use this trimmer for 50 minutes of grooming after only a quick 1 hour charge. A great plus as well is being able to trim up while it’s plugged it and charging. This option is great for quick fixer-upper through out the day, or lengthy grooming sessions.

It also comes with a travel pouch which is pretty cool. This will keep the trimmer protected and clean if you’re to pack it up and take it with you anywhere. Speaking of clean, you can give the detachable blades of this guy a rinse under water and you’re set! No pesky oiling or intense cleaning here. Just be sure not run the whole unit under water, as it’s not water proof.
