Braun is one of the best known men’s shaver makers in the world. Some of this is due to nearly 100 years of mechanical expertise. Most of the Braun men’s shavers are still manufactured in Germany, which gives confidence to the consumer market that they’re buying a quality personal care product. The Braun Series 7 790cc is a foil-style shaver in a dark grey colour. There is a black Clean & Charge Station that assists with the maintenance of your shaver.
This shaver is cordless and rechargeable. Braun has arranged the features neatly on the front bottom of the shaver, and at the very base of the shaver. The on/off button is located two thirds of the way down the front of the shaver, with two smaller buttons to either side: + and -. Beneath this is the Braun logo. Braun utilizes every space on the shaver for a specific function. The very base of the shaver gives a simple LCD power readout that you can check at any time to see if it needs to go into its Clean & Charge Station.
The Braun Series 7 shaver is considered a smart shaver that can analyze the thickness and length of hair on your face and neck, and adapt and adjust its speed and cutters. The shaver has an intelligent AutoSensing motor so that it helps to efficiently shave even the most dense beard more easily.
The foil head has a set of four shaving elements that are all synchronized together. In one test done by IPI Research Institute in 2015, it was discovered that it took only one stroke to remove all the hairs, while most other shavers would require two strokes to do the same. This test was done on 3-day old beard growth.
Besides the cutting blades inside the shaver, shaving ease is also possible through the 10,000 microvibrations that rapidly move the blades. One of the blades is called an ActiveLift trimmer and it will also snip off flat-lying hairs in problematic areas. One of the shaving elements has a SkinGuard blade which helps to protect the skin and reduce irritation.
The shaver head is attached to the shaver body with a flexible neck that’s called 8-D contour adaptation. This allows the head to float back and forth and sideways. This helps the shaver to more gently adapt to your face, and eases the pressure on your hand and wrist while shaving.
If you don’t wish to rely on the shaver’s AutoSensing technology, you can also manually adjust the power by pressing the + or the – buttons to the left and right of the power button. There are five different power modes. These start at sensitive and work up to a powerful turbo mode. Sensitive is good for when your skin is feeling sensitive due to allergies or a health condition; while turbo mode is ideal if you’re in a big rush in the morning.
According to the best electric shaver portal, the Braun 7 fits heads down into the Clean & Charge station. You don’t have to worry about filling it with water or soap as it takes special cleaning cartridges. The station is made in a black colour with a distinctive blue stripe along the base. There is a large circular button at the top centre for when you’re ready to start the process of cleaning up the shaver’s head, and to charge it up for the next round of shaving. The unit also has 7 small LED readout lights that indicate which stage the cleaning and charging is at.
Since the shaver is washable, it’s also 100% waterproof. This enables you to simply wash it under a tap at the end of each shave, particularly if you don’t want to place it in the Clean & Charge station. You can also charge up the shaver directly with the included cable, which is handy if you’re only packing a light bag for a trip.
This shaver is made in Germany and it’s been designed to last for up to seven years. It’s also possible to buy a new head, which will extend the life of the shaver for the many years ahead.
If you’re looking for a premium men’s shaver with extras, the Braun Series 7 790cc will not only make the perfect gift, but will also will be good to replace your old shaver. You’ll be surprised at how smoother and softer your face feels after a shave with your Braun Series 7.
