So, I don't know if you've ever heard the saying (try and imagine this being said in a thick 'New Yoiker' accent) @I've got a Braun and it's never done me wrong'. I like Braun as a make, they're usually pretty decent electrical items...but I'm not going to be swayed by that.
I've been leaving my face to grow for 4 days. It's gone from the tough bristley spikey feel to now starting to feel like a soft fur. (photo's in the image gallery of before and after). My old shaver, a Wahl, would have managed this, but believe me there would have been pain and perhaps a bit of blood. More pain than blood. Especially under the nose.
The Braun takes about an hour to charge to a good strength, but I just leave it for half a day until I go back in the room and think I'd better unplug it (the manual wasn't very clear if you can keep it plugged in or not).
I went straight for under the nose. Expecting tears as the Wahl has a nice way of giving a slight 'tug' thanks to the metal plate between the heads. The Braun has that metal plate too, but it's shaped differently. more like something Paul Hollywood would put as decoration around one of his pies.
Cutting to the chase (boom boom), it was painless. More than that it shaved it first go.Read more ›
It ultimately gave a good, close shave, even after a weeks' worth of growth. But in order to get that close shave, I had to go over it a lot more times than I normally have to with the 790cc. The precision long-hair trimmer really comes into its own when tackling the most stubborn spots. And yet despite this, it was still a more comfortable shave which left me with the least amount of irritation I've ever had from an electric razor. This is certainly an aspect of shavers which has come on hugely over the years & I'm thoroughly grateful for it! Indeed, it was the irritation caused by both wet & electric shavers which got me into the habit of shaving so infrequently in the first place!
Surprisingly, it doesn't require Braun's Clean & Renew system to clean it - just some water & a drop of oil once a week is sufficient. Which in fairness the manual claims is also the case with the 790cc. So perhaps this is a sign that Braun are moving away from their attempt to get electric shaver users to regularly buy consumables. Either way, the 340s requires little in the way of maintenance or 'faffing about', as it were, and does a great job too. So even though shaving takes a little bit longer now, I'm very happy with this product.
I have been using Braun shavers (mostly 7 Series) for over 25+ years and so can claim to know how best to use them especially in terms of shaving method. I was pleased to have the opportunity to test a Braun model from the lower end to see whether it is really necessary to pay a fortune (by buying one of the top end models) to get a really satisfying shave especially as they all tend to make the same claims in terms of the quality of the shave..
First impressions were good, a smart and attractive blue and black handset and a similar foil arrangement to that previously used. No fancy extras, no expensive cleaning system, no charging stand, no travel case - just a charging cord, a plastic foil guard, a cleaning brush and a small oil container. ...all that is needed on a basic model. It went on initial charge whilst I read all the claims made about performance and I started to wonder why I had paid such a lot for several Series 7 shavers.
When it was fully charged I left it to try the next morning. I shave daily so the length of my beard is never long enough to cause a razor to struggle. So when it came to the first shave I was a little disappointed with the performance. The shave was patchy and to get an "acceptable" shave took repeated passes and the time taken was in excess of 12 mins. Each day since then I have used the shaver and by today that makes 35 shaves. Regrettably performance has not really improved in fact I have even had to finish off with the 7 Series shaver. One thing I noticed early on was the distinct note change of the motor when it started the shave. I took it away from my face and the note of the motor rose.Read more ›
