Trimming should be quick and easy, right? You shouldn’t waste a lot of time on it, especially if it’s a part of your everyday routine.
Panasonic seems to know this. Their ER-GB370K trimmer will let you trim your hair or beard with no hassle.
It’s a very popular device, so I decided to take a closer look at it. In this Panasonic ER-GB370K review, I’ll show you all there is to know about it and help you decide if it’s the right product for you.
A Quick Look
The ER-GB370K is a mid-range Panasonic beard trimmer that does a good job styling your hair and beard. It’s packed with useful features and has only a few small drawbacks.

Who Is It For?
The ER-GB370K is for everyone who is on the go and wants great results as quickly as possible. It’s also great for everyone who doesn’t want to pay a premium price to get a good trimmer.
Overall its performance is pretty impressive and won’t let you down.
Panasonic ER-GB370K hair trimmer is one of the best trimmers on the market, and there are many reasons for that. I found it surprisingly effective and easy to use in all kinds of situations.
A Stunning Performance
This trimmer offers great performance thanks to the ultra-sharp blades that are honed to a 45-degree angle. Hair and beard trimming will be super-fast and precise.
The blades are made out of hypoallergenic stainless steel. Even if you have sensitive skin, you don’t have to worry about irritation after using this trimmer.
Thanks to the cutting angle, it won’t irritate your skin or catch your hair. You can have a fresh, sleek look without worrying about uncomfortable plucking.
It’s also very versatile. It offers 19 different settings for detailed trimming.
You can switch between different lengths from 0.5mm to 10mm so you can style your hair and beard any way you like.
A Predator Look
This may be one of the best-designed Panasonic beard trimmers I’ve seen so far. Its edgy design has a very strong and masculine feel to it.
Apart from looking like a beast, it’s also ergonomic and convenient. Although it may not feel very premium in the hand, it’s very sturdy and has a great build quality.
Wet or Dry
This Panasonic beard trimmer is waterproof, which provides efficient shaving even while you’re showering. And if you’re rushing to a meeting or a date, it will let you dry trim your beard or hair in a matter of minutes.
Another advantage of its water-resistant design is that you can clean it easily. Simply put it under warm water, and rinse it for a couple of seconds.
This Panasonic cordless trimmer offers a convenient use without messy cables. You can just put it in your bag and bring it with you wherever you go.
This cordless technology does have a couple of downsides. Although using this trimmer is convenient, charging it isn’t.
You have to plug the charger directly into the power outlet. Since it has no cables, you can’t put it on the desk.
This wouldn’t be much of an issue if connecting the trimmer to the charger wasn’t as difficult as it is.
The charging base has a pretty awkward design, so you need to support it with one hand while plugging the trimmer into it. You have to apply a little force until it fits, and if you’re not careful you may break the charger.
The battery of this Panasonic beard trimmer is pretty good. It provides up to 40 minutes of working time, which is more than enough for a good trim.
This long-lasting battery makes up a bit for the charging issues. Since trimming your beard usually doesn’t take long, you won’t have to charge it very frequently.
The package of this Panasonic cordless trimmer contains:
- Panasonic ER-GB370K Electric Shaver
- AC Adapter
- Storage Stand
- Beard and Hair Clipper Comb
- Clipper Oil
- Cleaning Brush
It’s also pretty affordable, so if you don’t want to spend a lot of money on a good trimmer, this might be an inspired choice.
If you’re not very impressed with this Panasonic hair trimmer, I’ve got another one to show you. Philips Norelco Beard Trimmer 7200 is a great option that you might want to check out.
Vacuum trimmer 7200
Integrated vacuum system
Beard and Hair Clipper comb attachment, AC charging/storage stand
Detail trimmer, 1 Beard comb adjustable, 2 precision combs (3-5 mm), cleaning brush
Why It’s Better
The first reason to consider this trimmer over the Panasonic one is the convenient use. Unlike its competitor, it offers both corded and cordless use.
This means you can use it while it’s charging, which can definitely come in handy in case your battery dies on you.
Another great thing about this trimmer is that it doesn’t leave a mess behind after you’ve finished using it. It has a vacuum system that can suck in around 90% of the hair you cut.
Why It’s Worse
The Panasonic ER-GB370K trimmer still has some advantages over the Phillips one. The most first one you’ll notice is the price.
Although it has some neat features, the Phillips trimmer is a bit pricey. The Panasonic model will provide a great trimming experience, and save you money.
Another feature that helps the Panasonic beard trimmer beat its opponent is the build quality. The plastic parts on the Norelco trimmer are far more likely to break than those on the Panasonic.
So what’s more important: convenience or durability?
Despite its drawbacks, I still think the Panasonic beard trimmer is a great product.
Is it perfect? No, but it does a great job of keeping your hair and beard good-looking.
It offers some pretty impressive features and is very easy to use and maintain.
