Sonicare Essence

The Sonicare Essence White comes in three colors: white, blue, and white. With white being the main color coating the electric brush, and the colors blue and green the ones highlighting the exterior design of the toothbrush.

Package Includes:

  • 1 e-Series brush head (Standard)
  • 1 Sonicare Essence Toothbrush

Sonicare Essence provides a good power performance. To ensure the good performance of the brush, the handle should be allowed to charge 24 hours before the first use. Then, when it is not being used, the user must make sure that the handle is charged constantly. This just improves the quality of the performance of the brush- it will also make the brush last 2 weeks without charging if ever a power cut occurs in the user’s area.

Like every other Sonicare product, Essence has a 2-minute timer that helps ensure the recommended brushing time of the user. It improves the quality of brushing and is really practical. This feature will ensure healthy gums and clean teeth.

Sonicare Diamond Clean

Unlike the previous one, Diamond Clean comes in a rather wide array of colors: White, Black, Pink, Amethyst, and Rose Gold. To some who may be very particular with the physical features of their brushes, this brush is the one to go for. This product features Sonic technology and 5 brushing modes: Clean, White, Sensitive, Gum Care, Deep Clean.

Package Includes:

  • 1 Sonicare toothbrush handle
  • 1 Diamond Clean brush head
  • 1 Adaptive Clean brush head
  • 1 Inter Care brush head
  • 1 glass charger
  • 1 USB charging travel case with wall adapter
  • 3 brush head travel caps

The DiamondClean provides the best whitening system and superior plaque removal. Unlike regular toothbrushes, Sonicare DiamondClean delivers up to 10x more plaque removal.

The charging travel case can be charged via USB or by wall outlet- whatever is more convenient for the user. Although, for users who travel a lot and hardly stay in a single hotel room, it is highly recommended for you to keep your handle and laptop fully charged.- the laptop is for when the handle finally shuts down.

QUIP Electric Toothbrush

Quip has a slim electric toothbrush that isn’t as expensive as people deem it to be. It contains a vibrating timer that indicates whether or not the required 2-minute brushing limit is reached. For users who like rather fancy features, the eye-catching metal and plastic exterior design of the brush is perfect for your taste. If you’re into details and performance altogether, Quip Electric Toothbrush is the one for you!

Package Includes:

  • 1 Quip Electric toothbrush
  • 1 Quip Electric Toothbrush brush head
  • Wall mount
  • Travel cover

This product is said to encourage the hygienic habits of its user. The brush has soft, rounded bristles, only replaced every three months- it’s the user’s choice whether or not they want to sign up for the auto-brush head refill offered by Quip.

The slim physical form of the brush makes it easier for the user to hold whenever they are in the middle of a brushing session. The size of the brush also makes it more convenient for the owner to bring whenever they travel.

The color of the brush is attractive and formal as it is. Its design goes well with different locations- the bathroom, bedroom, hotel room, etc. Extra brush heads are sold separately but are not as costly as the brush heads of other products.

So if the user wants an inexpensive brush head refill, Quip Electric Toothbrush is the perfect one to go for. Although the brush itself is pricy, the quality is worth the pennies.

Quip VS Sonicare Main Differences

  • Sonicare DiamondClean and Quip both feature 5 brushing modes and advanced brush head technology: Clean, White, Deep Clean, Gum Care and Sensitive, unlike Sonicare Essence that only offers a single brush mode.
  • Unlike Sonicare Essence, Quip Electric Toothbrush comes in three colors: white, silver, and gold. These three colors are sure to blend in whatever room you carry it in. Although Sonicare Diamond Clean has a lot of available colors, they both contain the ideal ones.
  • In general, all the brushes are expensive. Some are just a little bit cheaper than the others. Sonicare Essence is cheaper than the two other brushes mentioned. Although, the great price comes with the quality and the other items included in the package ordered.

Cleaning Performance

Comparing Sonicare and Quip in general, there is a huge similarity when it comes to cleaning performance.

Although they are different brands, the products’ performance is almost as if they were from the same one. They have equal power levels due to the same Rechargeable Lithium-Ion battery they contain.

However, the cleaning modes that these three brushes contain are what make a huge difference. Whilst Sonicare Diamond Clean and Quip Electric Toothbrush offer five modes, Sonicare Essence only offers one.

If the user isn’t very particular about the brushing modes, then Sonicare Essence may just do. But if they are a little bit particular or even a little pickier when it comes to the brushing or cleaning modes that the Electric Toothbrush offers, they may choose from the two brushes mentioned above.
