Braun electric shavers offer all kinds of benefits over wet shaving. They give you the closeness you need for smooth results that last all day. There is less pulling and tugging, which can cause irritation during or after a shave. They are also easy to use, with less mess and a simple cleaning process.

Shaver features include:

Sonic micro-vibration technology for maximum comfort: The 790 features innovative Sonic Technology that delivers 10,000 micro-vibrations with every stroke to soothe your skin while you shave, for maximum comfort. It works by creating 10,000 micro-vibrations per second which act to smooth the skin at the point of shaving, causing less irritation both during and after the shave.

The micro-vibrations also work to capture more hairs with every stroke for the ultimate in closeness and comfort—making the 790 the perfect solution for a shave-free weekend and a pain-free Monday morning.

Three personalisation modes for a more individual shave: Series 7 comes with three different shaving modes. On top of Normal Mode, the 790 also comes with Sensitive and Intensive Modes which can be used accordingly for different facial areas, giving you an adjustable shave that best fits your beard and skin.

Patented ActiveLift captures flat-lying hair in any problem area: ActiveLift is the world‘s only patented middle trimmer with 130 movements per second which actively lifts and cuts flat-lying hair. Many years of research show us that men‘s biggest need in shaving is a thorough shave even in the hard-to-reach neck area where flat-lying hair often occurs. Featuring an asymmetrical shape, the ActiveLift is especially designed to capture tricky hair in any problem area.

OptiFoil for perfect closeness that lasts longer:The unique geometry with ergonomically sized holes captures more hair and cuts them closer to the root. The specially designed hexagonal holes are of varying sizes. Small holes give optimal shaving results at a 90° angle while larger holes capture more hair and cut deeper at different angles.

Fully Flexible Shaving System for maximum facial adaptability:The flexible foil shaving head flexes to perfectly match the contours of your face. It has six times the adaptability of a regular foil head, so it can react to the slightest changes in skin surface. The ultra-flexibility gives you a closer, more accurate shave with fewer strokes.

Precision long hair trimmer for precise styling: The Series 7 Precision Long Hair Trimmer features an excellent cutting performance. To trim your sideburns, moustache or beard with this precise tool, simply slide the long hair trimmer upwards.

100% waterproof and fully washable: Braun shavers have a fully sealed body and can be rinsed quickly and easily under running water. For optimal convenience, you can use the Clean & Renew System to hygienically clean your shaver at the touch of a button.

Advanced LCD display for battery status and hygiene: The Series 7 790 features an LCD display - very precise indication of charging, battery and detailed hygiene status.

Powerful rechargeable Li-Ion battery with no memory effect: This shaver is rechargeable, working both cordless and corded. It uses a powerful 3,6V Li-Ion battery with no memory effect.

Full charge in only one hour - 50 minutes cordless shaving: One hour charging time gives you up to 50 minutes of cordless shaving. A quick five-minute charge is sufficient for one cordless shave. The SmartPlug has an automatic worldwide voltage adjustment. It adapts to an outlet voltage between 100V and 240V, for your best convenience at home or traveling.

Clean & Renew for premium convenience

Tests have shown that using the cleaning centre is ten times more hygienic than simply running it under tap water.

- Unique alcohol based cleaning solution for hygienic cleaning
- Automatic charging
- Automatic lubrication for optimal cutting efficiency
- Automatic program selection out of three modes: short eco, normal or high intensive

Shaving FAQ

What‘s the difference between foil and rotary shavers?

Rotary shavers are designed to work with cyclical movements while Braun foil shavers are designed to work with efficient sideways movements on the skin giving perfect control and precision. The foils protect the skin from irritation and are specifically designed to deliver a thorough and comfortable shave.

What‘s the difference between the different Series 7 models?

The 790 model has the more advanced display - an LCD display with very precise indication of charging, battery and detailed hygiene status. It also features the more advanced cleaning center which hygienically cleans, charges, lubricates and automatically dries your shaver.

What's in the box?
The Series 7 790 comes with a Clean & Renew System, cleaning cartridge and protective travel pouch
Why would I need a cleaning centre when I can clean my Series 7 shaver under water?

Braun’s tests show that cleaning your shaver with a Clean & Renew system is 10 times more hygienic than cleaning it under the tap. It’s also more convenient as it cleans at the touch of a button.

I already have a cleaning center from my previous Braun shaver (Pulsonic or Synchro). Can I use it with the new Series 7 shaver?

No, the Series 7 cleaning centre is the ultimate model from the Braun Clean & Renew line and can‘t be used with previous models.

How often do I need to exchange the cleaning Centre refill cartridge?

If you clean your shaver with the cleaning centre twice a week, you will only need to replace the Refill Cartridge every two to three months to experience a shaver like new, every day.

Do you have any recommendations on how to shave with an electric foil shaver?

Braun recommends you shave before you take a shower. After a few days without shaving, for example during the weekend, you should trim your stubble before you shave. Stretch the skin and shave against the direction of beard growth. Hold the shaver at a right angle (90°) to your skin. Keep the pressure even to achieve the most thorough and comfortable shave from Braun.

How often do I need to change the shaver head?

Braun recommends replacing all cutter parts every 18 months. A replacement part indicator is included in the display to ensure you know when to exchange the cutter parts, in order for your shaver to always stay at 100% performance.

Does the battery have a memory effect as we know it from mobile phones or laptops?

Memory effect is when rechargeable batteries lose their maximum energy capacity after they are repeatedly recharged after being only partially discharged. Series 7 shavers use a Li-Ion battery which has no memory effect. You can recharge it whenever you want and it has a low self-discharge rate (vs. NiMh batteries). Li-Ion batteries are therefore the most powerful and long-lasting battery available for Braun shavers.

Style Name: 799 Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This is Braun's top of the range shaver. It's expensive, but it's worth it. I previously had Braun 5 series with the cleaning station. The 7 series isn't just a small upgrade, it's a completely different shaver. It feels like a premium product. It's not too light & not too heavy; perfect balance. It comes with a premium leather pouch & the cleaning station.

The cleaning station is more or less the same size as the other cleaning stations Braun offers. This one shows you if your cleaning cartridge is low on fluid & how clean your shaver is. You can clean your shaver under the tap, use the brush that comes with it or use the cleaning station. Depending on the hygiene status of the shaver, it'll perform a standard clean or a heavy duty clean. If you don't have time to wait around for the clean to complete, you can also perform a quick clean which will last a couple of minutes, after which you can use the shaver straight away. Braun does recommend that you change the cartridge every 8 weeks even if there's still fluid left.

On the bottom of the shaver, there's a LED display. It's not back-lit but there's no need for that as you can't really shave in the dark anyway. It shows you the battery level & the hygiene status of the shaver. Fully charged, the battery lasts about 50 minutes. It takes 1h to charge it fully. The shave is very close, probably not as close as a razor shave, but it's really good. After shaving with the 5 series, my skin was irritated, but that's not the case with the 7 series. I'd also say it's much easier to shave with the 7 series.

The 7 series uses sonic technology. You have 3 sonic modes on the shaver. All controlled with the + & - buttons below the power button.

Style Name: 790cc-4
I thought I'd wait a few months before writing this - just so that I could speak from some kind of perspective!

Firstly, I am a BLACK CARIBBEAN male! I think that's HIGHLY important to mention in this review because our skin is different! Historically I have had a wet shave using one of those Gillette Mach 3 razors (that you put the AAA battery into - and it vibrates). But I was getting fed up of the inconvenience of this - and the occasional cuts - and wanted something a bit more 'stylistic'. Enter the Braun!

Flip!!! What a shaver - and yes! You can call it the Rolls Royce of shavers; it's expensive but it will blow you away when you use it.

First shave was not bad; not as close as my wet shaves - but then I didn't expect it to be, because the manual said it needs time/you need time for you skin to adjust to this type of shave. But it was good; more than passable. So I stuck with it!

Second shave... Better!

Third shave onwards... Skin felt exactly the same as after a wet shave!!! No joke! This thing shaves as close as a blade - but you need to give your skin time to adjust; I cannot emphasise that enough! And the convenience of shaving fully clothed and whilst rushing (in my case!) cannot be matched. Absolutely superb - and worth every penny. Been using almost 6 months now and haven't been back to a wet shave since - not even once. Now that's saying something!

Style Name: 799
If you're considering buying top-of-the-range Braun's 799cc shaver, the chances are that you're also looking at the high-end offerings from other manufacturers, probably Philips and Panasonic. I considered these and a few others before eventually settling on the Braun, mostly because I wanted a return to a foil shaver after experiencing a few in-growing hair problems when I switched to a rotary, and the 799 was the most readily available in my neck of the woods.

If you don't feel like reading the whole of this review, I'll cut straight to the chase. Is the 799cc a good shaver? Yes, very. Is it as a close as a blade? No, but it's closer than any other shaver I've had. Am I glad I bought it over the others I was looking at? Yes, and the others would have to be pretty good to beat it.

The 799cc is typical Braun - a solid, and reassuringly but not unpleasantly heavy, half-plastic / half-rubber gadget with a combined power button / indicator light on the front with two buttons on either side to change the intensity of the shave. There's also a non-backlit LCD on the base of the shaver that gives a segmented indication of the remaining battery level and the hygiene status of the shaver (more on that later.) All told, it's a fairly pleasurable thing to behold and to hold, if perhaps somewhat weightier than my old rotary; the rubber casing does, at least, make it quite easy to grip hold of, even with wet hands.

If the shaver is pleasant to hold, then it's equally good at shaving. I came to the 799 fresh from a long period of wet shaving, made necessary because my last shaver had a tendency to cause in-growing hairs. Understandably, my skin took some time (about a week) to get properly used to the new shaver and the shaves it gave in that first week weren't exactly brilliant.

I've always used a wet shave but recently started trying my son's Braun Series 3 340cc electric shaver. It was OK, but not good enough to replace a razor, so after reading several reviews I decided to plump for this top of the range version. That, and the fact that Amazon were doing a special one day discount of 25%!

So, how does this compare? Well, it definitely gives a much closer shave than the 340cc and no matter how hard I press it gives me no irritation whatsoever. It's a joy to use, in fact. I wouldn't say it gives as close a shave as a wet, although it does in places, but overall it gives a more than satisfactory result. I'm very pleased with it. i don't use the three modes and just leave it on full power all the time. Tbh, they seem a bit of a gimmick when the shaver is so gentle on the skin even at full power.

But, for those saying that they only need one or two passes I can only say I envy your skin/growth. If I did just one or two passes I'd look like I hadn't even bothered. Unlike a blade, I find I have to shave up, down, left, right and all shades of diagonal in between before my skin is left feeling baby smooth. And this is where this unit comes into its own, because no matter how often I went over the same area I never got so much as a hint of irritation, which could not be said of the 340cc. Some areas need a lot more work - like others, I found that the neck needed some pretty persistent shaving before getting the desired result. In fact, I found shaving sideways worked best there, for some reason. The chin and round the mouth was pretty straightforward, but my cheeks once again need a little workout. Maybe it's just me.
