Usually Equate brands are pretty good to use, but this one is the worst one I have ever used.
There is definitely a reason why this is half of the price of the original replacement heads. The look is very good as well as the ease of use. It even cleaned my teeth fairly well. However due to these replacement head not fitting the Sonic toothbrush base properly (Equate head was not designed well), when in use, it is VERY loud. When I first tried using them, my husband could hear me using it downstairs while I was brushing my teeth upstairs! Now that is loud! Equate even recognized this issue because on the pack it states to tighten the heads to prevent the loud sound. I tried tightening it, but it was still loud and this "work around" did not work.
Because of the lack of trying to fit these heads better before selling them publicly, I am skeptical about the quality of the material of the actual brush. So I feel that it may be damaging the enamel on my teeth and now after a few usages, I'm going back to the Sonicare replacement heads instead.
Don't waste your time buying them. You will be more likely to waste time going back to the store to return them, so stick with the name brand.
