Braun Series 7 represents the higher class of men's shavers. This series comes with a range of innovative technologies with which you stand a chance of achieving even better results. What is it? Find out what has come out of the German manufacturer's workshop and what makes it the right choice in this article.
Even though Braun offers the highest category of planer, the Series 9, some Series 7 models can still be interesting. Especially when you consider the amount of features offered and the price you can get them for.
The Series 7 products are a great choice for men with sensitive skin who shave regularly every day and want to rely on their razor.
The manufacturer has incorporated a number of advanced technologies into the Series 7 products. Let's take a closer look.
The separate attachment of the shaving elements in the shaver head is adapted to shave the fine contours of the face.
A swivel shaving head that can move at a 40° angle to follow larger curves. This allows the razor to maintain perfect contact with the skin.
The effective trimmer (middle part of the head shaver) takes care of shaving the beard that is close to the skin. It can thus cope with every curve of your face.
Used to perfectly fine-tune your look. It is very easy to trim, for example, sideburns or a moustache. A classic that is almost a must-have.
This is a lock for the shaver head. This ensures high precision, even when shaving, for example, on the chin or other hard-to-reach areas.
OptiFoil is a blade cover that is thin enough to allow the blades to contact the skin within 0.05 mm without irritation. The shave is therefore comparable in appearance to a razor blade.
This feature proves that shaving can be highly enjoyable and comfortable. Even owners with sensitive skin no longer have to worry about redness and irritation. After shaving, the skin remains soft and smooth.
The Clean&Charge station recharges, lubricates and hygienically cleans the razor. You will remove up to 99.9% of bacteria, making the use of the Cleaning Station up to 10 times more effective than conventional cleaning. The Cleaning Station emulsion is alcohol-based.
The triangles are tested for immersion to a depth of 5 meters. This guarantees reliable water resistance in normal use and can therefore be cleaned under running water as standard. This makes maintenance as simple and quick as possible.
Braun Series 7 shavers offer 5 different shaving modes. You can choose your favourite one with a simple button selection depending on what you prefer: Will it be more of a speed shave or a high degree of gentleness?
Flexible shaving system is based on separate floating elements (MicroMotion) on a movable shaving head (MacroMotion). By combining these two technologies, the manufacturer tries to compensate for the disadvantages of the foil technology, which is poorer skin contact in the sharp features of the face.
The Li-Ion battery type does not suffer from the so-called memory effect, so we do not have to wait to charge until the device is fully discharged. Charging the machine takes 60 minutes, the battery capacity lasts for 50 minutes of shaving. If necessary, you can also use the fast charging function, which recharges the battery within 5 minutes so that you can shave at least once.
Each model in the series allows both wet and dry shaving. This means you can shave using shaving gel or foam. This suits some men because it makes the skin softer and less irritated. Using gel or foam at the same time does not reduce the shaving performance of the device in any way. In addition, to simplify the daily shaving process, you can also shave in the shower without worry.
This technology is based on the fact that the machine is able to develop 10,000 micro-vibrations in one second and up to 30,000 cross-cuts per minute at the same time, thanks to four specialized shaving elements. The efficiency of the machine is then multiplied by a special ultrasonic technology. This can analyse the density of the beard up to 160 times per minute and adjust the shaver to your needs.
After smartphones, the world of electronics also offers smart shavers. The proof is in this model from Braun and its Sonic feature. It can independently detect areas on the face where beards grow thicker. It then increases the performance of the entire device accordingly.
However, this system does not take away your ability to optionally set 5 shaving modes. The + and - buttons on the handle of the Series 7 make it easy to choose the right one. You can adjust the settings to suit your sensitive skin or for the fastest shave possible.
The shaving elements ensure a close shave. The design of the shaver is based on two Opti-Foil blades, which allow you to trim at a distance of 0.05 mm from the skin, so the shave lasts longer. The ActiveLift trimmer (the central element of the shaving head) can also handle beards in problem areas. The protective SkinGuard guarantees maximum gentleness even for sensitive skin. The flexible 8D shaving system can offer separate floating blades and a trimmer on a swivel head with MicroMotion and MarcoMotion technology. It can cope with any facial line and can make contact with the skin. The Precision HeadLock then locks the shaving head when you need to shave around the sideburns and the like.
Wet&Dry markings are familiar from other Braun series and perform the same function here, you can also shave wet for added user comfort. Due to the waterproof design, you can shave directly in the shower. The integrated pull-out trimmer is located at the back of the device. Use it when you need to fine-tune your look to true perfection. It is used for precise trimming of sideburns or perhaps a moustache.
The Braun Series 7 7899cc stands out in its product range thanks to the Clean&Charge cleaning station, which you can tell from the name of the machine, CC. This station allows both charging and hygienic cleaning of the product. The drawback is the processing of the station, which is noticeable by the use of inferior plastic.
In addition to the package we find additional accessories in the form of a practical travel case. However, it only holds the shaver, but definitely does not include the charger. The shaver is designed for cordless battery operation thanks to the Wet&Dry function. It can shave for 50 minutes on a single charge. It takes 1 hour to charge to full capacity. So you have to wait for the shaver to recharge. While this is the usual behavior of battery-powered shavers, it may not suit you. Then you'd better reach for models that require a mains connection to operate. The Series 5 and Series 3 offer such models. A good option when you don't have time to wait is the 5-minute fast charge. After this time, the battery capacity is enough for one shave.
With the extended LED display, you can easily see the battery status and check the charge. At the same time, you can monitor the hygiene status of the foil.
Functionally, it is no different from its predecessor. As a significant difference we must mention the absence of a cleaning station. Other accessories have not been affected in this case, so you can also count on a travel case in the package.
The only difference from the previous model is the color scheme, otherwise the two devices are identical. So if you prefer the classic grey and can get by without a cleaning station, go for this model.
The Braun Series 7 shavers will satisfy even the most demanding customers, and even those who have been used to using razors will have no problem with them. In addition, you can shave noticeably faster than with razors. The model with cleaning station also makes regular care of your shaver much easier.
However, you have to pay more for a quality shave that is also supported by precision workmanship. The Braun Series 7 is therefore especially suitable for more demanding users who do not hesitate to pay extra and take advantage of all the features offered. In our opinion, given the durability of the shavers, which are manufactured directly in Germany, the investment is definitely worth it.
