The Braun Series 7 – 790cc Pulsonic Shaver

The Braun Series 7 – 790cc Pulsonic Shaver System is recognized as one of the industry-leading models of foil head shaver and although it is far from being a cheap shaver, it is good value for money which is why it does so well in my top ten shaver list!

It’s one of three models in the Series 7, the others being the 760cc and the 720cc.

It certainly has all the bells and whistles, which makes most $40 shavers look like something from the Dark Ages; here we look at the features that stand out with this device and what you can expect if you end up buying one.

Appearance and Inclusions

This silver and black-colored unit, with a blue LED display, is a solid build, weighing 2.7 pounds with its Clean and Renew System. You know you’re holding something serious!

It employs a rubber grip for ease of use and allows the clipper to be folded away.

The shaver comes with a travel pouch and long-hair clipper, as well as its cleaning station.

Main Features

  • Pulsonic Technology–active head oscillating at over 10,000 micro-vibrations per minute, stimulating the skin and helping to deliver a very close and comfortable shave.
  • SensoFlex technology brings a sensitive flexing head that pivots and flexes and follows the facial contours. It has twice the adaptation angle compared to other Braun shavers, as well as 6 times more flexing action on its foils.
  • Gillette Precision Comfort Blade technology that uses a triple-blade cutting system. It cuts hair close in a single stroke without pulling or tugging – creating exceptional closeness and comfort.
  • Ultra-sensitive and irritation-free, vibrating Optifoils for extra comfort.
  • It provides 3 different shaving modes for a more individual shave.
  • It has an oscillating middle trimmer that lifts & cuts flat-lying hair, meaning a great shave even in the problem areas.
  • Beard trimmer which folds away into a rubber grip handle.
  • Visual charging LED indicator.
  • Energy Star rating battery (no other shaver has this).
  • Cordless shave time around 50 minutes.
  • Quick Charge option that takes 5 minutes, if you are in a hurry. Otherwise 60 minute full charge time for the powerful rechargeable Li-Ion battery.
  • Automatic voltage adjustment when overseas.

Cleaning and Maintenance

The shaver is easy to maintain, as it comes with Braun’s Clean & Renew system docking station.

At the press of a button the shaver will be cleaned, lubricated and dried and it can also recharge at the same time.

Price

This truly is a premium model shaver and the price-point of $215-$270 on Amazon (including shipping) buys you a state-of-the-art unit.

Warranty

There is a 2-year warranty on the Braun Series 7 – 790cc Pulsonic Shaver System and Braun also offer a 60-day period after buying when you can return the item if you are really not getting on with it.

User Reviews

Users have generally raved about the convenience of the model, the closeness and comfort of the shave, its low noise output and its attractive and intelligent design.

The odd negative comments revolve around things like not being able to see where you’re trimming because of the angle of the trimmer, the shaver head heating up too much during use and the carry case not being big enough to hold the bulky charger.

But, judging by most users’ comments, we would expect most buyers to be very happy with their purchase; reaction has been 80-90% positive.

One way for users to justify the price is to divide it up over the number of days you will use this device – maybe 5 or 6 years or longer – and then it equates to a matter of a few cents per day!
