Detailed comparison: what’s the difference between the Oral-B Pro 1000 and Pro 2 2000?

These 2 brushes fall at the lower kết thúc of the electric toothbrush range from Oral-B, but they offer most of what you need of an electric toothbrush at a good price point.

The Pro 2 2000 (or Smart 1500 as a US equivalent) is one of the best value brushes available today.

So let us show you in a bit more detail how these two brushes differ & why we came to the conclusions we have.

Let’s start with the design of the toothbrush.

Both are similar with a cylindrical handle & detachable brush head.

*

However, the Pro 1000 has a cleaner, more minimal look lớn it. The design is said to lớn be inspired by Oral-B’s more premium iO brush handles.

Unlike the Pro 2 2000, it does not have a large rubber grip that runs down the middle of the brush handle. Whilst this does make the Pro 1000 a little easier to lớn wipe & keep clean, it does mean the Pro 2 feels a little more secure in the hand.

The 1000 does have a rubber grip around the power nguồn button, but the small surface area doesn’t give the same security in the hand.

The grip has changed on the back of the handle too.

The Pro 1000 has a dimpled texture that runs the full length of the handle, whereas the 2000 has a series of raised plastic ridges. Those ridges start from just below halfway up on the handle and extend to the đứng top of the handle.

Harsher khổng lồ the touch, they bởi feel more resistive in the hand, particularly when the brush is wet.

*

The slight kiến thiết differences, along with the different batteries, does mean the physical kích cỡ and weight are marginally different. Not significant though.

Pro 1000:

Height (without head) – 19.5cm/7.68 inchesHeight (with head) – 23.2cm/9.13 inchesWidth – 2.5cm/0.98 inchesThickness – 2.9cm/1.14 inchesWeight (without head) – 118g/4.1ozWeight (with head) – 123g/4.3oz

Pro 2 2000:

Height (without head) – 19.5cm/7.68 inchesHeight (with head) – 23.5cm/9.25 inchesWidth – 2.3cm/0.91 inchesThickness – 2.9cm/1.14 inchesWeight (without head) – 123g/4.34 ozWeight (with head) – 129g/4.55 oz

On the rear of the Pro 2 2000 brush handle, just below where the brush head attaches, is a red plastic panel. This is the visible pressure sensor. More details on this shortly, but know that the 1000 does not have it.

And the last thing related lớn the handle thiết kế is the handle color.

The Pro 1000 is available in 4 different colors, white, black, pink & green. Although it is the black and white that are most widely stocked. Depending on the color variant, the rubber panel around the power button does differ in màu sắc slightly.

It is worth noting that the black, green và pink variants of the 1000 actually have a trắng colored base khổng lồ them. Therefore the whole unit is not black or pink, you have a ring of white khổng lồ the bottom edge.

The Pro 2 2000 on the other hand comes in white, blue, black & pink.

These màu sắc accents are to lớn the rubber grip that runs down the length of the brush handle. This does mean the sides and back of the brush handle are a gloss trắng plastic.

Both brushes come supplied with 1 brush head in the box. Most of the time this is a CrossAction brush head with either model. However, the Pro 2 2000 may come supplied with a 3d White or Sensi UltraThin/Pro GumCare brush head.

*

The 3d white head is designed khổng lồ help polish stains on the exterior of the teeth and make the teeth appear whiter, whilst the Sensi UltraThin/Pro GumCare is a softer bristled head that pairs well with the Sensitive cleaning mode available on the Pro 2 2000.

Because the heads are interchangeable, if you have a preferred style, it can be fitted to lớn the handle, even if it does not come in the box.

Both the Pro 1000 & the Pro 2 have the mặc định Daily Clean mode available.

However, the Pro 2 2000 has an extra mode, Sensitive.

The lower powered mode is ideal for those with inflamed or bleeding gums, or if you find the Daily Clean mode too intense. Our Oral-B cleaning modes article goes into more depth, should you want lớn know more.

To access this additional mode, you have lớn press the power button an extra time each time you use the toothbrush. The Pro 2 defaults to lớn the daily clean mode.

The brush motors in the handles are slightly different too.

Both offer a 3d cleaning action via the small round brush head, but the Pro 1000 only offers 8,800 oscillations and 20,000 pulsations per minute, compared khổng lồ the 9,900 và 45,000 of the Pro 2 2000. Whilst the difference exist the impact on your brushing và cleaning results are limited.

*

A pressure sensor is built into both of these models. However, only the Pro 2 has a visible pressure sensor.

The pressure sensor benefits new & even experienced electric toothbrush users, but admittedly new users get the greatest benefit.

Having been using an electric toothbrush for many years now I vì chưng occasionally active the sensor.

The pressure sensor on the Pro 2 2000 alerts you via a bright red LED on the back of the handle when too much pressure is being applied.

If you see the red light, reduce the pressure until the light goes out.

Studies have shown that many people brush too hard. Brushing harder or faster does not equal a better clean. In fact, in many respects, it is the opposite.

The 1000’s pressure sensor, will like the 2000’s reduce the number of brush head movements, until such time as the pressure is relieved. However, it is virtually impossible to lớn know if the sensor has been activated on the 1000 as there is no light, or significant change in sound or brushing sensation.

The final significant differences are the battery & charging stand.

Both have built-in rechargeable batteries, but the battery type & usage time are different.

The Pro 1000 has a NiMH battery that gives about 10 days of use on a single charge.

The Pro 2 2000 on the other hand has a Li-Ion battery that lasts at least 14 days on a single charge.

In my hands-on testing I achieved a little over 10 days with the 1000, but a whole 3 extra days with the 2000.

*

Both come with charging stands in the box, but if the Pro 2000 has been imported from the UK or other EU countries, then it is likely it will have a 2 sạc UK or EU power nguồn adapter, rather than a 2 sạc pin US power nguồn adapter, meaning the UK/EU charging stand will not work in bathrooms in the US.
