Gamma Ergo Clipper Review: Features and functionalities
“Show me your friends, and I’ll tell you who you are!”
This analogy best explains the relationship between hair clipper and their features.
Well, I always say, “show me a hair clipper’s features, and I’ll tell you how good it is!”
Let’s start by reviewing what the Gamma Ergo has to offer.
It Has a Potent Magnetic Motor
It’s a fact:
A clipper’s motor needs to be robust for it to offer better performance and good user experience.
And that is precisely what you get with the Gamma Ergo hair clipper.
This clipper features a turbocharged magnetic motor with speeds of up to 10,000 strokes per minute.
This means that you can use it to tackle most hair types with ease.
Here’s the thing:
Magnetic motors are powerful but don’t produce a lot of torque; this limitation is mainly due to the linear movement of the motor.
Don’t get me wrong, the Gamma Ergo has ample torque; enough for all your bulk cutting needs.
Plus, the motor is durable and runs quieter.
High-Quality, Black Diamond Blades
What this means is that the blades have a Diamond-Like Carbon (DLC) coating.
How is this a good thing?
Well, with DLC coating, this clipper’s blades become corrosion-resistant with a low friction coefficient.
It’s also tough and durable with a smooth finish.
And the best part is:
These blades won’t catch or pull any hair while shaving.
Lastly, the Gamma Ergo’s blades can be zero gapped to improve its fading, blending, tapering, and line-up capabilities.
All these qualities serve to make these blades exceptionally efficient. And this is one more reason why the Ergo is worth buying.
The Gamma Ergo clipper is fitted with a Lithium-Ion battery that offers up to two whole hours of continuous runtime; hence, earning it a spot among the best hair clippers in the market.
Essentially, you’ll be able to get a good five or six haircuts before you run out of charge.
It’s not the best for a busy barber, but ideal for slow work hours.
The Ergo clipper can be charged directly or through its nifty charging dock.
Moving on…A Stylish Click Taper Lever
This clipper also features a neat taper lever that helps you get the most out of its adjustable blades.
Some of you might find the lever a bit stiff; and I agree, it kinder is.
Its stiffness often comes in handy for those looking to make quick and precise size adjustments on the fly.
Plus, if you set it to a specific position, you are assured it will stay there.
Other Cool Features
- Ergonomic design: The manufacturer has really done a great job with the design. This clipper comes with unique ergonomics, perfectly balanced weight, a nice grip, and is lightweight. That way you can use it for long periods without getting tired or uncomfortable hand cramps.
- Customizable: The Gamma Plus Ergo clipper ships with 2 body kits allowing you to customize it to your liking.
- Guards: The Ergo comes with 5 magnetic guards for greater versatility while shaving among other accessories.
Usability and handling…
Brief Gamma Ergo Clipper Usability and Handling Review
Any clipper can have incredible features, but only the best are usable and easy to handle.
So, in this regard, what can I say about this clipper?
First of all, with near-perfect ergonomics, this clipper will fit into most hand sizes with ease; it’s quite comfortable to use, lightweight and allows for a nice and firm grip even when using it for long.
What I like most about this clipper is that it’s quite balanced.
By this, I mean that the Ergo clipper’s weight is perfectly distributed to ensure there is no unnecessary straining during usage.
If you feel like changing this clipper’s design and appearance every once in a while, you can do it with ease and speed.
Well, get this:
When you buy the Gamma Plus Ergo Hair clipper, you also get two extra body kits (Gold And Rose Gold Colors) and two thumb rest covers (Silver and Black).
This means that you can easily customize your clippers to look the best way you deem fit.
Unlike most clippers, the Ergo comes with one unique accessory.
Well, aside from the usual guide combs and blade oil, you’ll also get a nice screwdriver to use when switching through the body kits and thumb rest covers.
I’m quite positive that most people won’t need this because the Gamma Ergo’s standard body kit looks just fine; quite elegant and stylish, if I may add.
Aside from looks, this clipper’s motor offers:
- Sufficient power for quite a number of haircuts.
- Quality, strong blades that stay sharper for longer and are corrosion-resistant.
- Plus, blade adjustments during a haircut are a walk in the park thanks to this clipper’s click taper lever.
To be honest, these are just a few of the many perks you get to enjoy using the Gamma+ Ergo clipper.
Although the Gamma Ergo clipper is a great hair cutter, it has faults too.
First, there’s a tiny design flaw that Gamma needs to address. Occasionally, the Ergo clipper often gets stuck in its charging dock.
And this means that you risk dropping, damaging, or breaking the dock if you pick up the clipper without first disengaging it from its charging dock. Moreover, it might struggle while shaving wet hair.

Whats your thoughts on the Gamma Ergo vs Wahl Seniors Cordless?
Glad you asked. Actually, there’s a huge gap between the Gamma Ergo and Wahl’s 5stars Senior Cordless, even though both are heavy-duty tools for professional, high-precision fading, and close-cutting.
But, let’s take a more in-depth look at them for better comparison. Shall we?
1. Power and Speed
The Gamma Ergo features a more powerful magnetic motor that does 10, 000 strokes per minute compared to the 6, 500rpm motor of Wahl Seniors Cordless. Aside from speed and user-friendliness, the Gamma Ergo’s turbo-charged motor offers greater cutting precision than the Wahl Senior. One more thing. Clippers with the most powerful motors inevitably last longer than their juniors. Here, the Gamma Ergo has an upper hand.
Another area where Gamma Ergo takes the lead. Once fully charged, Gamma Ergo offers a runtime of 120 minutes; whereas, the Wahl Seniors Cordless has about 70 minutes runtime before needing a recharge. Nevertheless, Wahl Seniors charges faster in just 70 minutes where a Gamma Ergo would take 105 minutes to be fully charged once out of power.
3. Noise & Vibration
The Gamma Ergo is considered one of the quietest performance heavy-duty clippers around whereas the majority of Wahl Seniors Cordless users report that it’s a bit noisy and has high vibrations.
4. Aesthetics & Ease of Use
While they both feature a click taper, Gamma Ergo has a more balanced modular ergonomic design that gives you an ideal positioning of your wrist, shoulder, and elbow for greater controllability. Also, it offers future modifications with 3 additional body kits; rose gold, gold, and chrome (you don’t get this perk with your Wahl Seniors).
5. Blade quality
Though the thin profile of Wahl Seniors Cordless steel blade gives it an edge in close-cuts, the black diamond blades of the Gamma Ergo stay sharper for longer, don’t heat up easily, and don’t rust.
Of course, good things don’t come cheap. Get this. The Wahl Seniors Cordless is more budget-friendly, going for $160-$200. But if you want all the greater benefits of Gamma Ergo, you would be spending about $180-$220.
Anyway, let me know if you need further help.
Thanks for visiting WiseBarber.
Are there any replacement batteries for this one once the built-in battery deteriorates? Is the built-in battery soldered in or does it have a connector (similar to WAHL Cordless Senior)?
