The clippers are quiet and have a nice grip. They use high carbon steel blades. This set comes with an instructional DVD, to help you get the barbershop look at home.
How Buyers Rate the Wahl ChromePro
It is of course very important when considering any hair clipper purchase, to read as many reviews as you can. After all, that is why you are reading this one.
We also think it is important not just to read our review, but to get some general feedback, from all buyers.
As I mentioned earlier, you should be able to find this one for under £30.
The facts are that this one has sold in its thousands. Normally when that happens the high review rating starts to drop as more people leave tougher reviews. That has not happened with this Wahl model, and it remains a huge best seller.
Around 9% of all buyers did give this model a low or bad review. We always like to find out why that would be the case, so we have shown that in the Pros and Cons section of this article, down below.

Wahl ChromePro Mains Set Pros and Cons
There are usually good and bad points about most of these type of products. We here at the Shaving Emporium prefer to include both of these, so as you have a full understanding.
It is also worth pointing out that some people will always have a moan or a rant, others say it is great and give it a poor rating, and some people say it is rubbish and then rate it highly.
We try and apply a common sense approach to reading reviews. Some of them are clearly left by some strange people, but we have always found that if you look carefully enough, you get some really useful information. It is that which we have summarised below.
As I pointed out already, there are around 9% poor reviews on this model. That does mean that the huge majority of buyers rated the product highly.
- Most buyers said these clippers did a good cutting job
- Accessories are all good quality and work very well
- The clippers are nice and heavy, but still easy enough to use
- Solid and reliable and ideal for doing family haircuts
- Good that they plug in so you always have constant power to them
- The clippers are just too heavy
- 5% of the buyers said they stuck all the time
- A few buyers said that the clippers nipped their head, and pulled on shorter hairs
Our Pros & Cons Summary
Many trimmers cost around £40-80. These cost around £30 so they are getting towards the higher end of the price point. They are however still good enough value for money.
These are not cordless though and that does mean you will always need to be near an electric socket. Although not a major problem, it can be inconvenient at times.
