Among the sonic toothbrushes from Philips, the electric toothbrush is regarded [url="https://www.amazon.de/dp/B08557LZMM?tag=produck-21",name="DiamondClean 9000",title=""]
is considered the top model. It has premium features and high-quality accessories that you wouldn′t otherwise associate with an electric toothbrush.
The electric toothbrush [url="https://www.amazon.de/dp/B089F3W17W?tag=produck-21",name="Oral-B iO 9",title=""]
relies on revolutionary magnetic technology. With integrated AI, app support and a 3D tooth surface analysis, it enables personal coaching and smart cleaning.
Both models equally belong to the premium toothbrush segment. In terms of their performance and functionality, they clearly stand out from other providers. The question is: What distinguishes the two models from each other?
The DiamondClean electric toothbrush is light in the hand, weighing 134g, and has a rubberized surface. The handle, on the other hand, is made of a roughened plastic surface. This makes it hygienic and longer lasting.
The power button of the DiamondClean sonic toothbrush is located on the hand control button, as well as a program selection button. It is easily accessible and does not interfere during tooth brushing.
The DiamondClean toothbrush is equipped with three intensity levels and 4 cleaning programs. The sonic toothbrush remembers the last selected program and selects it directly the next time it is switched on.
The handpiece of the iO 9 is marginally lighter than that of the Philips Sonicare (133g). It feels just as great in the hand, helped by its ergonomic design.
The toothbrush can be switched on via power button or app. For operation via smartphone, pairing via Bluetooth is necessary. If you do without the app, you still benefit from the integrated timer and the contact pressure display.
The iO model is equipped with seven cleaning modes that generate different intensity levels. The cleaning modes are:
- Daily cleaning (Daily Clean)
- Whitening (3D White)
- Deep cleaning (Pro Clean)
- Gum protection (Gum Care)
- Super Sensitive
- Tongue cleaning
They can be set according to your needs. You can also store the desired setting in the app. In addition, the model is available in three other variants, which are equipped with slightly fewer functions, but are cheaper.

The DiamondClean is a sonic toothbrush and has a pleasantly low noise level of just around 45 dB, despite the outstanding 62,000 vibrations it achieves per minute. Thanks to its sonic technology, the electric toothbrush cleans extremely thoroughly and thus contributes to clean teeth. The different intensity levels allow you to easily adjust the cleaning to your own needs. A pressure control gives you feedback to avoid too much pressure.
If you are using a sonic toothbrush for the first time, ideally start with the EasyClean program of the DiamondClean toothbrush. Even with the low program, your teeth will feel clean and smooth. Thus, this electric toothbrush achieves a similar effect as a professional teeth cleaning.
At 60 dB, the iO Series 9N does not work quite as quietly but intensively. Cleaning takes place via the familiar oscillation of the brush head in combination with micro-vibrations. Hence the name iO for "intelligent oscillation". Due to the smart vibrations in connection with the rotary movements, it ensures thoroughly clean teeth. Compared to its predecessors and other electric toothbrushes, it thus has excellent cleaning performance.
The smart pressure control protects your gums so that there is no bleeding of the gums. Instead, your teeth are clean and smooth. The nuances between each intensity level are clearly noticeable. If you suffer from sensitive gums, the electric toothbrush has a solution: with the Sensitive or Super Sensitive mode, you are gentle on the sensitive areas.Recent findings show that cleaning performance hardly improves even with good toothbrushes from 50 euros, i.e. a certain cleaning maximum has been reached. It can therefore be indirectly concluded that both toothbrushes reach the highest level in terms of thoroughness and hardly any differences in the result will be noticeable.
Both toothbrushes rely on a lithium-ion battery.The Philips Sonicare charges fully within 24 hours and then lasts for about 12 -14 days with 2 times daily use for 2 minutes.
The iO 9, on the other hand, takes only 3 hours to fully charge the batteries and then performs well for about 10 days with 2 times daily use for 2 minutes.
Features and scope of delivery
The standard DiamondClean toothbrush comes with a handpiece and a standard brush head. However, you can also opt for other equipment versions. In addition to the standard equipment, you get a high-quality USB charging case, a charger and a charging glass for home use. The charging case is great for on the go when you want to charge your DiamondClean via USB.
If you go for the smart version, the model is equipped with a Bluetooth module. The Philips app informs you when you should change the brush head. However, you need special RFID brush heads for this.
A special Gum Health program protects your teeth and gums. All programs have a timer that lets you keep a close eye on your toothbrushing time. Especially nice: The Easy Start program makes it easier for you to get used to it. It automatically increases the intensity over the course of several days. Especially when initially using a sonic toothbrush, you have a strange sensation. So the function can be quite useful.
The iO Series 9 electric toothbrush has a high price. Nevertheless, it convinces both visually and technically. It relies on a revolutionary magnetic technology. It is this technology that sets it apart from other toothbrushes. The powerful magnetic motor generates micro-vibrations, which enables very thorough brushing.
You get the toothbrush with an interactive OLED color display. On it, you can see the visual timer, charging status, and reminders. The intelligent pressure control helps to ensure that you apply the optimal pressure. If that′s the case, the light glows green, otherwise it glows red. To get an accurate overview of your brushing habits, simply connect to the Oral-B app. The mobile app is user-friendly and offers numerous useful functions.

The iO Series 9N is a premium model among electric toothbrushes. It has a high-quality finish and impresses with its modern design thanks to the built-in OLED display.
