A quick look at Pro 7000 vs Genius Pro 8000
A Brief Overview
Oral B Pro 7000
When Oral B 7000 smart series first came out in the market it quickly gained popularity and got flooded with positive reviews mainly because of introducing ground breaking technology in the electric toothbrush industry. It was the first of its kind to introduce Bluetooth connectivity.
The shape of Oral B 7000 handle is much ergonomic in nature. Made out of high quality material, the handle has several buttons including power button and some symbols on the outer faceplate. It’s quite sturdy and the rubber grip fits pretty well in the hand. You’ll notice a ring near where the brush head connects which commonly referred as Pressure Ring by Oral B.
What I don’t like about Pro 7000 is the smaller LED display and to shift cleaning modes, you have to use only one button and scroll through.
Oral B 7000 comes in 2 colors- Black and White.
In terms of technology and features, Oral B 7000 offers almost everything you can expect from a smart high-end electric toothbrush. Let’s see what extra Genius Pro 8000 can bring on the table.
Oral B Genius Pro 8000
Genius Pro 8000 is the latest upgrade to Oral-B line up and most advanced electric toothbrush Oral-B ever produced up until now. It enables you to experience the most technology driven brushing. In Oral B 8000 you’ll find everything you need and more.
Unlike 7000, Genius Pro 8000 is more cylindrical in shape. The handle here also made out of high quality material, feels pretty sturdy on hand, and comfortable rubber grip is skid free. The cylindrical shape seems quite practical for me as it became possible for Oral B to place a large LED display on the center. You don’t have to scroll through to change mode. Genius Pro 8000 offers individual buttons for each cleaning mode.
You’ll also find the Pressure Ring near the brush head just like Pro 7000. In addition, Genius Pro 8000 includes 360 degree smart-ring using which you can customize your brushing experience with 12 colors.
Genius Pro 8000 is only available in Black.
