Our impression

While a couple of features in the Barun Series 7 790cc are evidently defined in the name itself, a lot is not. Like in most modern shavers, you find healthy use of the charge and clean station.

But the real beeline of features begins with the Intelligent Sonic technology that Barun has previously used in the Series 9.

The technology patended by Braun has received rave comments for its performance in the ‘denser’ areas.

The device senses difficult hair and automatically increases power in those areas.

This is aided by the active trimmer, which lifts and cuts flat-lying hair from the problem areas.

The synergy between the blades and foils and the blades of the Braun Series 7 is evidently visible.

They work in combine to give even closer shaves.

In fact, by some standards, you will feel this combination surpasses the Series 9 as well.

Add to that the waterproof abilities of the 790cc and you have something that can be used both in and out of the shower.

Furthermore, you may easily divide the performance of the shaver in four distinct parts.

The first one is the most evident.

Every stroke captures more hair. However, this cannot be attributed to a singular feature or inclusion in the 790cc.

Secondly, you achieve stellar finish with the Series 7.

While this is not exactly how it feels with the 9090cc, there are definitely similar glimpses of a silky smooth finish.

You may tag the OptiFoil for this perfect finish that the shaver leaves on the skin.

The third distinctive feature is the closeness of shave. And we are fairly confident that the Series 7 790cc hands-down beats most competitors in the segment.

But that definitely does not suggest an unmatched shaving closeness.

The Philips Arc4 could be a tough competition for the 790cc.

We would like to take that up in another compare-review.

Fourth and perhaps the most significant distinction is the flexible shaving system.

The cutting elements have been carefully stationed on a rotation head.

The combination of MicroMotion and MacroMotion technologies allow the shaver to roll closely as it glides up and down facial contours.

This also allows the shaver to be in contact with the skin all the while and remove more hair in the process.

The well-placed head is a significant contributor to the silky finish that the 790cc leaves on your face after every shave.

It also enhances the longevity of the head itself.

We would like to mention the Intelligent Sonic Technology a second time.

And this is because of the measure of convenience this technology singularly adds to daily shaving.

Whenever the shaver nears an area of the face (like the lower chin and the neck) which is considered a ‘difficult shaving space’, this technology subtly increases the motor power.So if you have dense beard in those areas, this is why you would like a hold on the Series 7 790 cc.

That the same technology generates up to 10, 000 micro-vibrations in a minute is more than just a number.

The clean and charge station also plays its part well.

It is alcohol-based with five actionable modes that actually offer different purposes.

The station charges, cleans and lubricates the shaver with zero effort on the user’s part.

The device auto-selects the right cleaning program and the shaver becomes bone-dry with a one-touch button.

There are jolly options in personalization too.

There are three different shaving modes in the shaver.

These allow shaves tailored for different features of the face.

The range starts at extra sensitive shaves and goes up to the real intense ones.

Faq (frequently asked questions)

Braun Series 7

  • Is the shaver well-suited for African-Americans?

Many African-Americans have used the shavers for years at a go. Complaints have been very limited.

Ladies who have used the shaver to shave their legs, armpits and even the bikini area said it left a really smooth feel after execution.

  • How compatible is the razor with a shaving gel?

It can be used with a shaving gel. But care should be taken not to use a shaving gel and the shower at the same time.

Wrap up

The Braun 7 series 790 cc is a clear winner in its class when you go by just the features and convenience of use.

There are some hiccups as far as the body shape of the razor is concerned.

And it is also not the most travel friendly one in the market.

But the pros far outweigh the cons, like in most other grooming products from Braun.

Bottom line

Buy the Braun 790cc series 7 electronic foil shaver if you want a taste of the elite men’s grooming section without having to spend as much.
