Conair iStubble Review

By | June 16, 2013

Even though it sounds like the latest in Apple technology, you’ll have to believe me when I tell you it isn’t. You’ll also have to believe that Conair, the manufacturers of the iStubble, have no affiliation with an 80s film starring John Malkovich, they are in fact a maker of hair and grooming product as you may already know, and they’ve really pushed the boat out with this model, as we explore in our conair iStubble review.


At the time of writing you can pick up an iStubble for around 40 bucks, which isn’t a bad price for a quality beard trimmer, roughly on a par with some of the Philips Norelco models explored already on our blog. The RRP is $60 for the iStubble GMT900 but in a competitive market, the models that have been out a little while tend to be available for a little cheaper, as is the case here.

The “Floating Head”

This is the real unique selling point of the iStubble, the “floating” head, designed to be as flexible as possible and to track the contours of your face as you trim, is a truly excellent piece of design, which makes for a closer, more accurate and more comfortable trim, making those hard to reach areas as simple as the rest of your face to trim. Once you’ve used the floating head design, you won’t want to go back to ordinary trimmers.

Length Control

The length control on the iStubble is truly impressive, offering settings from 0.4 mm up to 5 mm, easily controlled via the LCD screen (another hi tech feature of this beard trimmer) and excellently motorized length control confirm the iStubble’s status as one of the most impressive of its kind available today.

Other Features of the Conair iStubble

  • Cordless – no tangling of wires or need to be next to a power supply, just charge and go.
  • Impressive, Clear LCD display to show you what you’re doing at all times.
  • Rapid charge – no more waiting ages for your trimmer to be ready to go.
  • 15 different length settings, great for full beards, stubble looks, goatees and other styles.


The Conair iStubble, and especially the GMT900 model we talk about here, are really pushing the boundaries of tech when it comes to grooming and facial hair. I love what they’re trying to do with their range and they’ve pulled it off with this one, which has been excellently received and well reviewed almost everywhere. Without a doubt this is one of the coolest trimmers you can own, that will impress people wherever you take it, which can’t be said for many other models! Comes with top recommendation from me especially because of its floating head.
