Braun Series 7- 790cc
The Braun Series 7790cc shaver is yet Braun’s most advanced shaver and is now highly sought after by most men. It’s part and is the latest out of the Series 7 collection from Braun, one of the best makers of internationally-recognized shaver systems on the market. This product is said to be engineered for perfection in order to meet customers expectations. It claims to give men the most rewarding shaving experience. The shaver is packed with great features that not many electric shavers today have included in their product.


Providing Closer Shave:

Many users shockingly felt smoothness when touching their face after a dry shave using Braun Series 7 790cc Pulsonic Shaver. So it simply means that the shaver does really offers a closer shave and even, some of its users attest that they had their closest shave ever using the Braun 7 790cc.  Braun shaver uses an Intelligent Sonic Technology that runs 10,000 micro-vibrations/minute, so with every stroke it captures more hair. It also features “ActiveLiift”, a patented middle trimmer which actively and effectively lifts and cuts those flat lying hair. Plus, the “OptiFoil” (optimized cutting elements) which is a unique design to capture more hairs and also cuts deeper than ever before. The shaver also features a “Triple Action Cutting System” consisting of twin foils and an integrated middle trimmer that shaves longer hair as easy as short hairs and shaves progressively closer.

Handling of the Shaver When Shaving:

Most men find that the Braun 7790cc is the most comfortable shaver to hold, even on wet hands. It is also the easiest one they’ve used when shaving under the nose as compared to Philips Norelco 3D Shaver which requires some practice to shave in that area and the new Panasonic 5-Blade line of shavers that have bigger heads. So Braun has effectively designed the shape and size of the shaver head allowing it to comfortably sit in facial areas and even those tighter areas. Moreover, its “Pivoting Shaving Head” enables the shaver to efficiently adapts around the facial contours, even on problematic areas such as the jawline and under the chin.

Skin’s Reaction to the Shaver:

There is minimal to NO SKIN IRRITATION being experienced by most of its users. Just a few might experience a bit of redness which is normal when you switched to a new shaving system. Give time for the skin to adapt to the new shaving method, but really there’s only minimal reports and skin irritation isn’t an issue for this shaver. Fortunate for Braun users, the Braun 7 790cc is the only advanced shaver that offers “3 Personalized Mode Settings”: the extra sensitive, normal and the intensive mode settings for an optimal performance in different facial areas and to best fit for every beard and skin type.

Ease of Use:

The Braun Series 7 shaver comes with its own cleaning and charging system. It’s 100% waterproof for cleaning purposes and can only be used on dry shaving. It also has an LCD display that indicates charging updates, battery status and its hygiene status as well. The display isn’t really sophisticated and is more practical in usage. The shaver also has a precision long hair trimmer to trim sideburns, beard or moustache.


There is a newer version of this shaver, the BRAUN SERIES 7 799CC Wet & Dry Shaver. This new shaver model from Braun supports both wet and dry shaving. But it is only for cordless use, unlike other Series 7 shavers which support both corded & cordless use.


Braun has one of the best advanced automatic cleaning and charging system, plus the shaver unit is also 100% washable. Below is a video of Braun’s advanced clean and renew system.

Maintenance Cost:

Braun may have the cheapest cost when changing blades compared to other advanced electric shavers. Once every 18 months is advisable to replace foil and cutter blocks to maintain the shaver’s max performance. Replace it with Braun Series 7 Pulsonic 70S (9000 Series) that costs $29.57 – $43 (latest/current price – list price as of June 23, 2013). For the cleaning system, the Braun Clean & Renew Refills (4 pack) costs $17.14 – $20. A daily use of the shaver will approximately use one cartridge for a month cleaning.
