When it comes to finding a foil shaver, most people turn to Braun as a trusted brand. The Braun Series 7 790cc is the latest shaver from Braun’s Series 7 shaver line, which is engineered with Pulsonic technology to cut more hair with minimum strokes and is built for convenience by featuring a Clean & Renew system to give you one-touch cleaning.
So does the Braun 790cc deliver the ultimate shaving experience for the modern man or does it fall short? Read the rest of this article to find out.
Braun Series 7 790cc Pulsonic Shaver System Features
- Pulsonic technology
- 3 modes for personalization
- ActiveLift technology cuts flat-laying hairs for precise closeness
- Optifoil – Specially designed to capture as many hairs as possible
- Clean & Renew System
Unique to the Braun 790cc is Pulsonic technology which detects the density of your facial hair then adjusts the intensity of the 10,000 micro-vibrations accordingly to capture more hair with minimum strokes.
Exclusive to the Braun Series 7 line are 3 personalization modes which allow you to tailor the shaving intensity to the sensitivity of your skin in different areas of your face for optimum comfort.
The shaving performance is excellent on the whole, providing a good close shave with no discomfort or irritation in any areas of your face. Due to the pivoting shaving head, manoeuvrability is outstanding with the shaver adapting well to your facial contours.
Clean & Renew
Cleaning the Braun 790cc couldn’t be easier thanks to Braun’s Clean & Renew system. After shaving, just simply place the shaver into the cleaning system and press the start button, then it will clean, lubricate and fully charge the shaver. Due to the fact the cleaning fluid is alcohol-based; it ensures that 99.999% of germs are eliminated in the cleaning process. Tests conducted by Braun have shown that using the Clean & Renew system is 10x more hygienic than manually cleaning the shaver under tap water.
If you’re in a rush, the FastClean mode will quick charge the shaver in just 25 seconds, which is pretty impressive. The shaver comes supplied with 1 cleaning cartridge, which lasts for 1 month if you use it on a daily basis.
If the cost of purchasing cleaning cartridges is off-putting or you want to take the shaver with you when travelling, you have the optional of cleaning the shaver manually. The first method of manually cleaning the shaver involves removing the shaver foil and using the supplied cleaning brush to remove any hairs and stubble. The second method involves turning on the shaver then running it under warm tap water thoroughly, then removing the foil and allowing it to dry. You should perform both these methods to ensure the shaver is fully cleaned.
Like we’ve come to expect from most high-end shavers, the charging times are minimal so you won’t need to leave it plugged in overnight. A 1-hour charge provides you approximately 50 minutes cordless shaving. If you’re in a hurry, a 5-minute charge provides enough power for one shave.
The Braun Series 7 790cc Pulsonic Shaver is an excellent addition to the Series 7 line-up. Its elegant design combined with its advanced technology and cleaning system make it ideal for those looking for a foil shaver which provides ease of use, convenience and comfort. One downside is that it isn’t quite as comfortable as using a wet shaver, but for speed and convenience the Braun 790cc comes out on top.
