Goby Reviews

This was okay. I liked that they offered some other colors aside the typical white or black and being able to receive new toothbrush heads as a subscription was convenient. I also liked the quadrant timer on the brush. However, it was a bit big and was a hassle to charge. It also got really gunky between the brush head and the body and I was frequently having to clean it. I used it for a while but eventually swapped to something else.

Goby brushes are pricy, so I was expecting to keep mine for a good amount of time. Every time you brush and place the toothbrush on the stand, it leaves a gooey, murky stain. Once you remove the bottom piece, it reveals all the residue from previous brushes. The bristle is worn down really fast, and it costs a lot to purchase another. The toothbrush doesn't stand on its own (I know it's intended because of the stand, but still). I ended up going back to Oral-B in around 5 months because of my terrible experience with this product. Cheaper Oral-B brushes are better than Goby. It is pretty, though.

Feedback

Bristle prices/maybe giving an extra with your first purchase of around $95, weird stain from brush.

My husband and I have had had our Goby for 2+ years and enjoy it. I have had some battery issues with mine but customer service was quick to replace it. it is kind of loud when in use, but it's hard to beat the price for it.

I found the overall experience and design just slightly clunky. The base, the charger, the toothbrush head case all feel just a little bulky and not elegant. Also, I found the brush to be fairly loud when running. I personally don't love round brush heads compared to oval shapes, but if I did I'd still most likely be exploring Oral-B options. Still did the trick but just feel like there are better options out there.

I used a Goby for two years. I liked the look of the brush (mine was black and gold). But it's not the most powerful, and I upgraded to a high-end Oral-B electric brush and now would not go back.

Feedback

The bottom charging station accumulates junk pretty quickly; brush itself could use more power.

My partner and I used Goby toothbrushes for about two years. I found that, while they worked well enough, they aren't nearly as powerful as the Philips toothbrushes we replaced them with. I also had some problems with the battery in mine, but Goby quickly sent out a replacement to rectify the issue.

Feedback

The toothbrushes are pretty loud, and the stands get dirty and gunky really easily.
