- Amazingly close shave
- Effortless and without irritation
- Feels solid and has a comfortable grip
Solid, reliable Braun razor perfect for daily use; a highly-maneuverable, easily cleaned and gets the job done.
Replacing damaged, faulty, or broken Braun razor heads or cleaning cartridges is pricey.
The Braun Series 7 Shavor is the most advanced and premium razor system. It gives you the most thorough and comforatble shave. It includes Braun Pulsonic technology that uses more than 10,000 micro vibrations to help campture more hair in every stroke.
Performance: The Braun Series 7 Shaver head has been redesigned for newer models, with larger holes and a more efficient center cutting strip that gives you a very close shave. This Braun product generates less heat than competing models, meaning less friction and lower risk of shave burn. It shaves quickly, and is particularly efficient on the hard-to-reach spots (beneath the chin or behind the jaw). With this Braun model, you only have to do one or two passes for a close shave, and there is very little risk of irritation, white bumps, or ingrown hairs. You can only use it for dry shaving, but it delivers the best dry shave.
Note: The newer Braun Series 9 models do deliver a better, smoother shave, but the Series 7 models are better-built and longer-lasting. The replacement heads on the Series 7 are also cheaper, making it the better mix of great value and performance.
Operation: It's not the quietest Braun model, but the cleaning process is highly user-friendly. The Braun shavor feels solid in your hands, and it's comfortable to grip. The Braun Pulsonic technology turns the power up or down depending on the area you are shaving. It adjusts the power to slice through coarse or thick patches of hair. With 10,000 microvibrations per minute, it slices through your beard or stubble with ruthless efficiency. Its battery life is standard--roughly 50 minutes per charge.
Features: The cleaning station flushes hair and skin cells efficiently (though it takes about five minutes), using an alcohol-based solution that leaves the Braun shaver smelling "lemony fresh". The cleaning station lasts longer than other models. Manual cleaning is a bit more difficult. It has a few "gimmicky" features (such as the LCD bars indicating "sterilization level" or the fast clean option).
Price: At $140, this Braun is one of the pricier models on our shortlist. However, despite the price tag, it's a shaver that delivers quality, reliability, and durability. This Braun worth the investment, and will work well for years to come.
