Having never seen one of these brush heads in the flesh, we really can't say anything definitive about them.

We can say that the Sensitive and ProResults heads they mimic are older technology. And while we don't swallow everything that Sonicare has to say, the ProResults (and likely the Sensitive too since it's similar looking) is likely a less-efficient brusher than the heads with a more modern design.

On the Amazon page you mention we see a claim of "proven to reduce gingivitis up to 100% better than a manual toothbrush." However on the company's website couldn't find a page detailing this "study." (Their website also seemed to lack information about a physical address for the company, or even what company actually owned/ran this business. Even their domain name registration hid this information.)

The Amazon page makes mention of "OEHHA Prop 65 approved." That regulation has to do with the materials used to make the heads. That's not a standard dealing with issues such as bristle stiffness or whether the tips of the brisles are rounded or not. Both of these factors could affect product safety to oral tissues.
