ActiveLift is a patented middle trimmer with 130 movements per second which actively lifts and cuts flat-lying hair. Many years of research show 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 specifically designed to capture tricky hair in any problem area.
OptiFoil for the Closest Shave
The OptiFoil is the most advanced foil from Braun. The unique geometry with ergonomically-sized holes allow the shaver to capture more hair and cut them deeper. Braun has more than 50 years of foil evolution experience culminating in OptiFoil.

Frequently Asked Questions
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 the most thorough and comfortable shave from Braun.
What's the difference between the different Series 7 models?
The 799cc and 790cc models have the most advanced display among Braun shavers: a LCD display with a very precise indication of charging, battery and detailed hygiene status. Moreover, they feature Cleaning Center from Braun: it hygienically cleans, charges, lubricates and dries automatically your shaver. The 799cc has on top the Wet & Dry functionality for convenient use under the shower.
I already have a Cleaning Center from my previous Braun shaver (Pulsonic or Synchro). Can I use it with the Series 7 shaver?
The Series 7 Cleaning Center is the ultimate model from the Braun Clean & Renew line and can't be used with previous models.
How often do I need to change the shaver head?
Braun recommend 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 so that your shaver always stays at 100% performance.
Does the battery have a memory effect as we know it from cell phone or laptops?
No, the 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 the most powerful and long-lasting batteries available for Braun shavers.

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. The power button light will change from white, light blue to dark blue depending on the setting. It's a very useful feature and helps to cut the flat hairs with ease.
The main feature of this shaver, over the other 7 series, is that you can dry and wet shave. Other 7 series will probably stop working after a wet shave.
As this is a wet shaver, I was surprised and relieved to see that you don't have to carry the cleaning station with you wherever you go. You can unplug the power cable from the cleaning station and plug it directly into the back of the shaver. There are a lot of manufactures who don't offer this with wet shavers. This is a major plus for Braun as you don't have to worry about running low on battery while on holiday.
Overall, this is an excellent, top of the range shaver which is definitely worth the price. However if you're not going to use it for wet shaves, you should get the 790 model (which is for dry shaves only) as it's usually a bit cheaper and offers most of the same benefits & features.
It's an excellent shaver, which I bought as a replacement for the old Braun 8995, which had given good service for more than six years. Both the Series 7 799cc and the later Series 9 9095cc have generally excellent reviews. The 799cc is now available at a fair discount on the price of the newest top of the range and both make use of the excellent automated clean and renew system.
Having decided to go with the 799c, I don't have the 9095cc so I've no shaving experience with it, but its principal selling point and proclaimed difference from the 799cc is that it allegedly gives you 40,000 oscillations - or cutting movements – a minute as against 10,000 oscillations for the 799cc! Statistics are all well and good I guess, but the mere 10,000 oscillations of the 799cc give me a fast close shave with which I am very content. I wouldn't expect to experience more than a marginal improvement, if any at all, from the newer model despite its extra 30,000 oscillations! Indeed, I'm not sure that the effectiveness and comfort of a shave is simply a function of the speed of its cutting movements.
There are various comparative reviews available online, but in my book the 799cc is a value top-of-the-range shaver in its own right and it comes in a useful protective case which is perfect when you're travelling and incidentally obviates the need for a guard for the shaver head. You might think it's missing when you open the box. It isn't - there isn't one!
It's certainly the most comfortable shaver I've had. The 'wet and dry' manufacture means it's guaranteed safe to use this in the shower, though I haven't done so. As an apparent safety measure, shaving is disabled while the unit is plugged into an electric socket for recharging. Some people have raised this as an issue, but I'm not sure why. First, with a full charge this will work for a long time - certainly not far short of an hour. But if it does run low while you're away a very short charge will provide sufficient power for a cordless shave with hardly any delay.
The cleaning station is included with the shaver, but it may come with only one cartridge and you do have to buy refill cartridges Braun CCR3 Clean and Renew Electric Shaver Refill Cartridges - Pack of 3 which are not desperately cheap, but I've found this to be a highly effective and efficient way of keeping your shaver properly clean and fresh - and a pleasure to use. A pack of three refills should last between three and six months and will keep your shaver in tip-top condition and extend its useful llfe.
As I said at the outset, this is not an endorsement of the 799cc over the 9095cc as I have not had an opportunity to compare them, but in absolute terms I like the 799cc a lot and the cleaning system (which was also a feature of my old 8995) works very much more effectively than manual brushing.
