The Braun Series 7 790cc-4 Electric Foil Shaver has the world's only intelligent Sonic technology that automatically increases power in difficult areas. Powered by a lithium ion battery, the Braun Series 7 790cc electric shaver is the smart choice for the discerning man. Significantly gentler and more efficient than any rotary shaver, the Series 7 contours to the curves of your face with flexible blades on a fully pivoting head for maximum coverage. This electric shaver also adapts to your beard density, using up to 10,000 micro vibrations per minute when needed. With less strokes and pressure required, the results are smooth skin without the skin irritation. And as the Series 7 electric razor shaves as close as 0.05mm, as thin as half a human hair, that smoothness lasts longer, for a highly efficient and superior shave. The electric shaver also comes with a Clean&Charge station, the world's only 5- action alcohol-based system that hygiencially cleans, charges, and lubricates the blades and shaver. . Engineered, tested and made in Germany, you are guaranteed exceptional performance every day, for up to 7 years.

But first let's get a basic question out of the way: do you have to spend this much to get a good shave from an electric shaver? Absolutely not. Lower-end models such as the Braun Series 5, the 7000 and 8000 Norelco series and the Panasonic ArcIV are great shavers. What you get for the extra money is a slight improvement in the shave, a bit better design, and a few somewhat useful bells and whistles.
Build quality - all are very nicely put together. The Braun feels the most substantial; the 3D feels the most "plasticy."
Sound - the 3D runs very quietly; the Braun and Panasonic are far more "buzzy" but not too loud.
Overall feel - for me, the Braun feels the most comfortable to hold. Easy to grip even if your hands are wet. The Panasonic is a close second. The 3D feels the most awkward. Not horrible, but not all that comfortable either.
Dry shave: closeness - this is a tough call, with the Braun and the Panasonic both providing very close shaves. The 3D does a pretty good job, but my face does not feel as smooth as with the others.
Dry shave: speed - the 3D is the clear winner here. Just mows through my beard, with a total shave time of less than 3 min. The Panasonic takes about 4 min for a good shave; the Braun clocks in at about 5 min.
Dry shave: neck - this is the most difficult area for most shavers, and all of these models left a few errant hairs here and there. The 3D did the best but it comes at the expense of some irritation (see the next note). The Braun and Panasonic are about equal.
Dry shave: comfort - Braun is the winner for me, followed by the Panasonic. Zero redness even in the more sensitive spots (jaw line and neck). The 3D left me with some red spots on my neck. Nothing severe, but it is clearly a notch below the others on the comfort meter.
Wet shave - this is limited to just the Panasonic and the 3D. I'm not a big fan of wet shaving, but both of these do a very good job. The Panny works best with a very thin layer of gel-type cream; the 3D works best with a heavier lather (I got good results with Edge). Both provided close shaves, with the Panny a bit more gentle than the 3D. But, the 3D did a better job on the neck and jaw line.
**Update: Just tried the new Remington Alphagel shaving cream and that works very well with both the Panny and the Norelco. The scent is a bit heavy (menthol) but the no-foam consistency is a perfect match for a wet electric shave. Much better than any other shave cream I've tried. I reviewed the Alphagel if you want more info.
Maneuverability - this is where the Braun really shines for me. I have a mustache, and edging it with the Braun is a piece of cake. The 3D takes some practice, but it can do a decent job. Worst by far was the Panasonic - the huge head makes it very hard to create a clean edge around the `stash.
Auto cleaning - I love the cleaning station from Braun. Works well, cleans well, and the razor comes out lemony-fresh. The Panasonic cleaning station is OK, but is louder, takes longer, and the water-based cleaning solution is not as effective. I can't comment on the 3D station since the model I bought didn't come with it.
Manual cleaning - both the Panasonic and 3D are very easy to clean manually. They actually don't need the auto cleaning station (although it is handy for storage for the Panny). The cutters are removable from the 3D (unlike the Arcitec models) for extra cleaning every so often. The Braun can be cleaned with water, but it's hard to get it very clean since the cutter block is a single unit.
Lots more that I could say about these razors, but this review is already way too long. If I had to pick just one, I'd go with the Braun. While not perfect, it excels in several areas and feels the best. It also offers three settings (gentle, normal and intensive) that vary the speed of the cutters, a feature the other two lack. I find that very helpful. Plus, replacement heads are easily available and often discounted (as are the cleaning cartridges). But, the 3D and the Panasonic are also very good shavers and will get the job done. If you are willing to spend the money, any one of these would be a good choice.
Note: I have the Braun 790cc-4 since I was able to get it at a fantastic price (on another site - sorry Amazon!) on Black Friday. But, under normal pricing situations, the 760 is cheaper and a better value. They work the same, with the differences limited to color of the razor, type of read-out on the handle, and the fact that the 760 lacks the "quick clean" feature in the cleaning station. None of these are really significant, so if you go with the Braun, pick the one that is cheaper.
But, you have to learn how to use an electric razor properly to get a good shave. Some quick tips:
1) Don't press hard - use an easy touch. If the heads are getting warm or hot, you're pressing too hard.
2) Shave against the grain when using a foil; shave in circular motions when using a rotary.
3) Stretch your skin taut when shaving your neck
4) Wait at least an hour after getting up before shaving (everyone's face gets a bit puffy when sleeping).
>>Update June 2012: Thought I'd post an update after 1.5 years of use. No complaints at all - works as good as the day I bought it. I'm also pleased to report that I have not yet had to replace the foil. Although I have several shavers, this remains my favorite, and I have yet to find another shaver that provides the same blend of solid build quality, ease of use, and outstanding shaving performance. It's still a 5-star razor in my book.
>>Update August 2013: Still working like a champ! Zero problems with functionality; fit and finish still looks very nice. I did end up replacing the head a couple of months ago, and it was surprising how much of a difference that made. I didn't really notice the foil and blades wearing since it occurs so slowly, but really noticed the improvement with the new head. I'm not going to wait so long to replace the head next time.
>>Update July 2014: Humming along without a problem. I did find that the head can be cleaned very well if I use an ultrasonic cleaner. Not nearly as quick and easy as using the cleaning station, but if you find yourself without any cleaning cartridges (as I did), an ultrasonic cleaner gets the head very clean. That method of cleaning does not add lubrication as the Braun cleaning fluid does, so I give it a quick spray with Norelco shaver spray after an ultrasonic cleaning.
>Update May 2016: Zero problems to report. Getting some wear on the silver parts and the handle has taken a ding or three due to getting knocked about while traveling, but the shaver continues to put in a good day's work without complaint. However, I recently had the opportunity to use the Panasonic ES-LT7N-S. I have to give the edge to that as my current favorite. It is new, so the price is still way up there, but Panny fixed a lot of the issues/complaints I had with their other high-end models. If your wallet doesn't complain about the price of the Panny ES, it's well worth considering along with the Braun 7 series.
In general the Norelco and Remington I would describe as ordinary. They get the job done with more time, louder, and tend to be rougher on my skin in general.
The Panasonic has a good feel to it and a definite step up from the ordinary brands, but is a little unusual, heavy, and a little cumbersome with the huge head.
When I got the Braun 360 complete, on first use I was very surprised about how it clearly was so far above the rest, zipping through a shave in a smooth way and having a fit and finish that was very high end. The Clean and Renew is no joke and gives a crisp fresh feel every time and is really not very expensive when taken in context.
I dropped my 360 and broke the on off slider, so time for a new shaver... Braun was so much better in the past, how could I not buy it?
I don't believe in spending the extra bucks on luggage, watches, and various other stuff.... but in shavers it pays off... Same thing when getting higher model Brauns... why skimp $30 and give features when you have already committed to getting a great product?
So I got the 7 - 790... I put in the cartridge, charged it and tried it out.. and I have to say, the 790 is clearly a full generation better than the 360, which I didn't think was possible. It shaves in an almost surgical instrument kind of way.
-Clean and renew is expensive: In use the $4 clean and renew cartridges last about 6-8 weeks in 5 day a week use. I've seen crackpot ideas like refilling them with seabreeze (dumb as you aren't putting the right cleaner lubricant on your expensive shaver and it barely saves any money).
- An expensive shaver doesn't stack up to a quality razor. BS, this thing definitely gives a better shave than I ever got with a blade with a lot less mess or time and no cuts ever.
- An expensive shaver doesn't make sense with quality disposables being so cheap. BS also, to get in the ballpark quality wise, you would have to be buying $3 each disposables.... it only takes 4 months of blades to pay for a new shaver and a year of clean and renew packs.
- shave a very dry face, before washing in the morning. your skin expands a lot when moisturized, drawing your beard in and making in inaccessible to the shaver and showing a shadow much quicker as your skin dries out later, forget shaving in or after the shower
- wake up first and shave at least 30 minutes later, not only will you be better at it, faces tend to be somewhat puffy from laying down and result in a poor shave
- after shaving before putting the shaver in the base, pop the foil off and tap it a couple of times in the trash to get most (probably 90%) of the beard out.. it keeps the clean and renew fluid much cleaner and makes it last much longer as the base does a 'thorough' clean much less often.
Reasons I'm glad I broke my 360 complete (if I had known these, I would have just bought the 790 anyway)
- the fit and finish of the 790 is very very high.... like museum watch high.. ultra cool looking and constructed product
- the shave quality is much better than the 360 complete... almost surgical in feel, hard to believe I know because I thought the 360 was about perfect
- the 790, while having the same size head, has a much thinner and easier to hold body, the older Brauns tend to be a little beefy
- it has push button on off.... the older ones had a combo switch / trimmer slider which always was a little awkward to use
- the 790's trimmer juts way out from the shaver allowing a much better view for trimming sideburns etc. a HUGE advantage.
- the 790 has a quick clean feature, so you can start a cleaning cycle without it taking the shaver out of commission for hours.
- the hair lifting bar is very very good now at avoiding in grown hairs... if you have this problem, this shaver is the only one I've ever found that is effective at reducing them.
one of the few products in the universe that doesn't disappoint in some way.... buy it.
My razor was delivered to the service center on 11/6/15. It is now 12/10/15 and I still don't have my razor. I've contacted Braun customer support multiple times to try and get an update. Braun is unable to locate my razor and they are having issues communicating with their service center. So far, they are refusing to send me a replacement.
What's so disappointing is the fact that I really enjoyed the razor, but at this point, I'll never buy another Braun product again since I know they won't provide adequate support.
Prior to buying this Series 7 model 790 Shaver my previous shaver was the Braun Series 5, 5090 model. While the Braun 5090 is a good I found it awkward because of the location of the power button and the small side trimmer. Although my 5090 shaver was only a year old I became frustrated and bought this Series 7, model 790cc and couldn't be happier.
The main reason I bought the 790cc shaver was the recessed power button and smaller, more ergonomic design. The power button on my previous Braun 5090 shaver was large, not recessed and right where I'd rest my thumb while holding the shaver. I often would accidentally push the power button off while shaving and pinch, pull and rip hairs out as they got caught in the foil cutter ... Ouch!
Thankfully the chassis and body of the 790cc is more ergonomic then the 5090. The power button on the 790 is smaller and recessed so it doesn't get pressed accidentally when holding and using the shaver.
The body of the 790 is smaller and slimmer and just fits your hand better.
Another benefit of the 790 is the improved sideburn trimmer cutter. On the 5090 the trimmer was small and on the back side of the shaver. On the 5090 it was hard to see the trimmer because it's obscured by the head and body of the 5090 shaver. There's no such issue with the Series 7, model 790. On the 790 shaver the trimmer flips outward from the front of the shaver and can be easily seen and controlled so you can trim exactly where you want.
The recessed power button and the improved trimmer were the main to reasons I upgraded from the 5090 to the 790 shaver but after using the 790 Shaver I discovered several other improvements that make it worth the few extra dollars.
Status Indicators: The 790 has an LCD display on the bottom of the shaver that shows both battery level and cleanliness of the shaver.
Three Shaving Modes: The 790 shaver has a mode button to adjust the shaver to the mode than best suits your skin and beard. The modes are Normal, Extra Sensitive or Intensive. I compare the mode button to a selector button on a performance cars transmission, Normal, Sport or Luxury.
Intelligent Pulsonic Technology: I must admit I didn't know what this was when I bought the shaver but discovered later the head and cutting blades of the shaver vibrate up to 10,000 per minute to capture and cut more hair. At first I thought this was a gimmick but I shaved one side of my face with my 5090 Shaver and the other side with the 790 and after I could feel the difference.
Contour Adaptive Shaving Head: The shaving head on the 790 flexes up and down and left and right to provide better surface contact and give me a closer shaver than my 5090
Battery Life: You get slightly more run time on a single battery charge on the 790 compared to the 5 Series shavers.
Cleaning Station: The cleaning station on the 7 Series is smaller and provides both a quick cleaning mode as well as a full cleaning mode. The quick clean mode is faster and uses less cleaning fluid.
So Braun shaver owners feel the cleaning station is expensive and a waste of time. Personally I love the Braun Cleaning station and while the cartridges are expensive I find cleaning my shaver regularly provides a better performance and a more comfortable shaving experience.
As mentioned earlier I've used Braun Shavers for more than 30 years and in my opinion whether you choose a Series 5 or Series 7 model, the Braun shave provides the closest shave that you can get from an electric shaver without using a razor blade.
Most of my Braun shavers over the years have been Series 5 and this is my first Series 7 Shaver. The price difference between the Series 5 and Series 7 shavers is pretty about 10-15% but in my opinion if you can afford the little extra it's well worth it. There is a noticeable improvement in the fit, feel, ergonomics and performance of the Series 7, 790 Shaver and now that I've used a Series 7 Braun Shaver I don't think I'd every go back to using a Series 5.
If you can afford the extra $30-$50 dollars on the Series 7, I'd definitely recommend purchasing the Braun 790cc shaver. If your budget can justify the cost I Don't Recommend the Series 5, Model 5090, 5040 or 5030 shavers but I DO Recommend the older Series 5 Model 590cc, 550cc or 530s Braun Shavers.
I've included some pictures of both the 790cc and 5090C shavers side by side so you can see and compare the two models.
I hope the comparison photos are helpful to you. If you have any questions just ask them in the comments section and I'll try to answer them for you.
