Found 3rd Nov 2014
8 x compatible replacement toothbrush heads. 48p each.

I've been using these for about 2 weeks now.They seem pretty good for the price. Pretty much indistinguishable from the Philips branded equivalents.

So this has gone up in price.. do I need to expire? Might be worth keeping open so people know there is an alternative to ~£5 per head Philips charge?..

Cheapest link for this seller is here:
ebay.co.uk/itm…301

Shipped from UK.

These are Philips though not Oral B, and they're not advertised as originals anyway

No one is suggesting these are genuine Phillips?

They're described as 'compatible' so no ambiguity there.

Also the sonicare heads don't have the mechanical gear that disintegrates like the fake oral b heads.

Only comes down to Bristol guess. Worth a punt at this price.

Have some heat
It is a good deal.

I personally ordered the official ones not long back, i was prompted but amazon reviews of other types with the bristles coming out.

Be good so get an opinion of someone who bought these.
But like you said its worth the punt for pocket change

Thanks only been on the site 5 mins and bought 40 batteries and 8 toothbrush heads!

Omg I just got some from boots last week

My dentist told me my bleeding gums and recurring pocket issues were down to using "compatible" brush heads. She said they are cheaper due to lower tolerance of dimensions and so fit is patchy and they become lose over time. I had noticed some were tighter or loser but felt the fit was okay. I was sceptical but I have been using genuine OEM only for sixth months so far and have had no co-occurrence of previous problems. I don't think the money saved is worth it, personal choice of course, just sharing my experience.

We have tried lots of different 'compatible' heads from Amazon. Haven't really had a problem with bristles coming out, but they haven't lasted long enough for this to happen perhaps. In every case we have found that the main problem is that the head doesn't fit properly onto the toothbrush, or at least stay secured. It's o.k. for a week or two, but then the brush simply detaches from the body when you try to use the toothbrush. You end up holding the body with one hand and the brush in place with the other. It's completely hopeless, so we have bitten the bullet and gone back to the originals.

Awesome. Worth a try at that price I guess.

What you pay is what you get.... I did buy one of those once and that was the last time I bought as the quality really poor and it doesn't stay secure for long. Better to pay a bit more and get the original.

I can vouch for the fit of the head on to the toothbrush itself. I share the toothbrush with the other half and thus end up swapping the head twice a day. Over the course of two weeks there has been no noticeable degrading there.

For the price, I will vote it hot. However, I bought one of those a while back, thinking how much difference does it make. I couldn't be more wrong. I used it once and discarded the other three. It's not comfortable at all. It might be fine some people, or maybe I'm a bit picky, I wouldn't recommend it personally

I had some cheap copies and they started shedding bristles as I used it. I was constantly feeling them in my mouth after brushing. Never again.

Have to agree, i bought two packs of 3rd party brushes from different suppliers- nowhere as good as the Phillips unfortunately, problems from falling off the main unit to bristles shedding.. i wouldn't knock a good find at any price, yes the originals pricey but unfortunately my experience would advise against going the cheap route with these. Have a go and see for yourself.

So they won't work on oral be?

5.99 now

5.99 now


buy 2 sets of 4 still cheaper than the 8 set: ebay.co.uk/itm…596

£6.99 now for 8... The lads quick off the mark!

Would you trust 'compatible' items enough to put it in your mouth ?

That is my dilemma. God knows where these heads have been...

Am I wrong thinking like this ?

It is really cheap. But is it the super soft material?

Ive used these compatibles and there fine, im not paying 5 quid to philips pfff, they should sell them for a lot less then we wouldnt resortto buying these..

FYI, I have some of these and they are a little less bristly than the real ones. They work, but they feel a bit more of a polish than a scrub.
Buy them, try them, and if you don't like them it is a relatively inexpensive experiment.
