Oral-B Pro 1 600 vs 650 vs 680 vs 750

Oral-B Pro 1 600 vs 650 vs 680 vs 750 1

If you are confused by the differences between these models, you are in the right place.  

In this article, I will explain the differences, or should I say lack of differences, between these Oral-B toothbrushes and help you pick the one that is right for you.

My recommendation

By all means, continue reading to learn what differs between these models, but I would encourage you to seriously consider the Oral-B Pro 2 2500.

It is very similar to the models being compared in this article, but it benefits from an extra cleaning mode, a slightly more powerful motor, a visible pressure sensor and an improved battery life for not much extra expense.

Based on my hands-on experience I feel that for the vast majority of users, this is a better buy all round.

What brushes are being compared?

The models that I am comparing are listed below.  All are made by Oral-B.

Some of the above may also have ‘+ Free Travel Case’ added to their name.

There could even be more names for these models that are used across stores both online and on the high street, but these are the main models I am aware of.

What are the differences?

There are actually more similarities than there are differences between the models listed.

Technically, all of the brushes are the same.  None of these brushes will clean the teeth better than the other.

All of the models listed above have:

  • 1 cleaning mode
  • 2 minute timer
  • 30 second pacer
  • Small round oscillating-rotating and pulsating brush head
  • A built-in rechargeable NiMH battery 
  • Pressure sensor
  • Same physical handle shape

But, there are differences, aside from the product name and those key differences are:

  • Colour of grip on the brush handle
  • Whether or not the brush comes with a travel case
  • The style of the travel case
  • Whether or not a tube of toothpaste is included
  • The style of brush head supplied
  • Price

None of these differences affect how well the toothbrush cleans the teeth.  They simply affect your experience of using the brush.  

For example, those options with the case may be more useful to you than those without.

You might like the design of the pink gripped handle over the white.

I shall now list each model and what is included so that you can select the most appropriate for you.

All of these models come with 1 x brush handle, 1 x brush head, 1 x charging stand and documentation in the box.

Pro 600 / Pro 1 600

The same toothbrush, they may well be labelled with or without the ‘1’ in the name.  The ‘1’ relates to a bit of a rebranding exercise undertaken by Oral-B.

So, as you can probably now see from this explanation, there really is barely any difference between each model.

You are likely going to get the best value from the Pro 1 680/Pro 1 750 variants, because they include a travel case.  But, prices do vary, so this logic may not always apply.

As stated earlier, my recommendation is to pick the Pro 2 2500, also from Oral-B which offers a fraction more but for very little extra cost.  I do believe that it is a better all round purchase.

Why do all these different versions exist?

The honest answer is I do not know the exact reason why.

I believe it is in part to offer different products at different price points so you and I as consumers have a choice.  

I do then think it is so that Oral-B can offer a particular model exclusively to one retailer.

For example, it seems that the Pro 1 750 is primarily sold via Amazon here in the UK at least whilst another model may only be available from select other retailers.

Personally, I believe the wide array of models just makes it more confusing than it needs to be, for the likes of you and me when it comes to buying a toothbrush.

Perhaps, they are operating by the thought process that by offering lots of choice we will at least pick one, rather than none at all?!
