Braun Series 7 790cc Review

The 790cc is the most advanced model in Braun’s premium Series 7 shaver collection. Engineered and built in Germany, the Series 7 790cc features ‘Pulsonic Technology’ which creates over 10,000 micro vibrations a minute to help the shaver get closer to the skin and deliver the smoothest shave possible.

These days even the lower-end Braun electric shavers offer an excellent shave, so what seperates the Braun Series 7- 790cc Pulsonic Shaver System from it’s cheaper counterparts? Essentially a slightly closer shave, excellent build quality, and a few extra bells and whistles. Some of the additional features seem a bit gimmicky, whilst others are genuinely pretty cool and justify the premium price-tag.

Let’s start with one of the major product features – the Pulsonic Technology. Whilst it sounds like a made up pseudo-scientific marketing term, in practice it does the business. The 790cc sends pulses through the skin which allows it to give a close, even shave and capture more hair in a single stroke. This is coupled with Braun’s ActiveLift system which basically lifts up those annoying flat hairs, usually on your neck, to make sure the shaver head catches them first time.

If you’ve used an electric shaver before and found it a bit harsh on your skin, the Braun Series 7 790cc has three different settings – including Extra Sensitive which is ideal if your skin is easily irritated. The other settings are normal, and intensive if you want an extra thorough job. Like many other premium shavers the 790cc has a pivoting head and the foil head floats gently above the skin when not cutting to ensure a smooth, comfortable shave.

Maintenance is nice and simple – the shaver recharges, cleans and lubricates simultaneously when its placed in the charging cradle. The cleaning solution is alcohol based for extra hygiene and leaves the shaver head with a nice lemon scent ready for its next shave. A full charge from flat only takes an hour and provides 50 minutes of shaving thanks to the lithium-ion batteries.

The Series 7 790cc comes complete with a long hair trimmer so you can style facial hair such as beards and sideburns, essentially transforming itself into an all-in-one grooming device. The shavers sealed body means its fully waterproof so you can give it a proper clean from time to time. As you’d expect from a premium electric shaver there is also an LCD screen which provides plenty of information including battery charge status.

Whilst there are cheaper shaving solutions available, the Braun Series 7 790cc provides an extra close smooth shave which lower range models just can’t match. It’s additional features add plenty of value to the overall package. This model has been tested by Braun to deliver 6 years of trouble-free shaving and comes with a two-year manufacturer’s warranty.
