In this video, I give my full review of the Andis Profoil Lithium Titanium Foil Shaver, model 17150 vs the Five Star Series Wahl Finale. I compare the features of the Andis electric shaver vs Wahl Finale foil shaver and demonstrate the results in a head-to-head shave off.

For those barbers out there looking to clean up hairs less than 1/32” and those that shave their beard every one to three days, the electric foil shaver of both the Andis Profoil Foil Shaver and Wahl Finale may be the tools you’re looking for to compliment your grooming space.

While Andis recommends their foil shaver for finishing fades and removing stubble, Wahl touts the Five Star Finale as being designed for finishing and blending bald fades, cleaning up hair and neck lines, eliminating stray hairs and bump-free shaving.

Looking inside the box, this Andis Foil Shaver includes the foil shaver itself, a foil guard, charging adaptor and a cleaning brush, while the Wahl Finale electric shaver includes the finishing tool, foil guard, wall plug charger, automatic recharge stand, pre-shave brush and cleaning brush.

While the Andis Foil Shaver is an Amazon Choice recommendation, ranking at #5 for the category of Men’s Foil Shavers and holding a 3.9 out of 5 star rating, the Five Star Wahl Finale ranks just slightly lower at #13 and is closely rated at 3.8 stars.

Taking a look at the top of these shavers, both the Wahl Finale and Andis Foil Shaver feature a gold hypoallergenic foil, which each brand claims will eliminate skin irritation, including razor bumps and ingrown hairs.

Now, while Andis indicates that their foil is Titanium, Wahl indicates that their gold foil is micro-thin and will wear with use which will be indicated if your shaver slows down and the foils start to get warm.

That said, Wahl specifically recommends that the foils will need to be replaced often and the cutter bar periodically.

You’ll also noticed that the Andis foil shaver holes go completely around the foil, while on the Wahl Finale electric shaver the foil holes stop short on both ends.


As far as battery life, both the Andis Foil Shaver and Wahl Finale are powered by Lithium-Ion batteries and rotary motors.

Both shavers can be operated corded or cordless, however these units are not to be used while bathing or in the shower.

While the Andis can run up to 80 minutes on a single charge, the Wahl Finale claims to operate for up to 90 with each devices indicator light going off once fully charged.

As far as cleaning both devices, you simply press in their respective buttons on the side to pop off the foil and access the cutters, which can be wiped clean with the included brushes.

Taking a look at the price, the Andis foil shaver will run you around $45 to $55 on Amazon, while the Wahl Finale falls just shy of $72.

That said, keep in mind that replacement heads and cutters will most likely be necessary with prolonged use, adding an extra $15 - $20 to each unit.

So, for this demonstration, I put the Andis Profoil Lithium Titanium Foil Shaver head-to-head with the Five Star Series Wahl Finale to see which electric shaver / foil shaver is the best deal for you.

Check out the video to see the results.

Overall, the Andis Profoil and Wahl Finale are both possible options to compliment a barbers arsenal of tools.

That said, one of these shavers gets my GroomReviews recommendation.
