PROS

1. Close Shave:

This electric shaver's OptiFoil Technology is simply amazing. While people usually complain that even the best electric shavers cannot provide a close shave, this 760cc is the answer to all those negative electric shaver reviews. As a matter of fact, I switched only to this model because it offers similar closeness just like a manual razor.

2. Customizable Shaving Setting:

The 760cc offers three different shaving settings to choose from. This feature becomes highly useful when you want to shave the different parts of the face with the same excellency. I generally use the Normal mode, but switch it to Extra Sensitive while shaving near the nose and mouth area.

3. Excellent for Shaving Flat-Laying Hair:

While the advertisements of this shaver mentioned its ActiveLift feature, to be frank enough, I was not quite sure about its effectiveness. To my surprise, the shaver easily lifts the flat-laying hair from my neck and cuts them easily without causing any kind of skin irritation.

4. Waterproof:

I like to shave while taking a shower and the waterproof ability of this shaver allows me to do so. It can be submerged into 5 meters deep water and not a single drop of water will enter inside it.

5. Charges Quickly:

Even though I like to charge the battery completely, its quick charging feature has proven to be handy when needed. Charge the shaver for only 5 minutes and you can have one complete, uninterrupted shave. On the other hand, fully charging the shaver provides 1 hour of continuous shave.

CONS

Even though I was a little dicey about trying this shaver at first, I am now completely satisfied with it and cannot find anything wrong with this product. However, the following point is the one that I found on multiple reviews of this Braun shaver-

1. Price:

While I am very much satisfied for what I paid for this shaver, a lot of reviews on Braun Series 7-760cc suggest that it is too expensive. But along with this exceptional shaver, you’re also getting the clean and renew system. So, in a way, you’ll be getting more value for your money.

 

VERDICT

No matter if you’ve been using an electric shaver from a long time, or like me, this is your first time with an electric shaver, the Series 7 760cc electric shaver from Braun is sure to impress everyone with its performance. From its advanced features, battery, automatic cleaning, to its attractive looks, the shaver is created to impress in every department.

Braun Series 7-760cc review

Braun is the brand that has been known for its quality electric shavers for a quite long time now. Every series they introduce in the market are known to have a bundle of advanced features to make your shaving an easy process. One such amazing product from them is the Braun Series 7-760cc Pulsonic Shaver.
I have used some other electric shavers as well, but the exceptional functionality of this shaver is the sole reason that made me writing this personal Braun Series 7-760cc review.

Hardware and Design

Let us start with its built quality. It has a lightweight, compact body in black with tones of silver to it. The partial rubberized grip allows it to stay firmly in your hand when they are wet. Like other latest Braun electric shavers, this one too has a mechanism that works sideways to ensure much better results than that of a manual razor.
The OptiFoil Technology used in the shaver avoids direct contact of the shaver’s blade to your skin to minimize the chances of cuts or skin irritation. It provides you with three different cut-settings to choose from. Comparing to other electric shavers that I’ve previously used, the Braun 7-760cc does a far better job of catching the flat-laying hair with the help of its ActiveLift Technology.

Includes

• Braun Series 7-760cc Pulsonic Shaver
• Charging Station with Clean and Renew Station
• 1 Clean and Renew Cartridge
• Cleaning Brush
• Manual and Warranty Card
• Travel Case

Key Features

Three Different Shaving Modes:

The 760cc offers three different shaving modes- Extra Sensitive, Normal and Intensive. These modes ensure that you get the same impressive results in every part of your face. Be it the sideburns, check, areas near the mouth or neck, you can change these modes accordingly.

Intelligent Sonic Technology:

With the help of intelligent sonic technology, this shaver is able to deliver up to 10,000 micro vibrations in a minute. This large number of vibrations allow the shaver to catch more hair in a single stroke for finishing your shaving quickly.

ActiveLift Technology:

Neck is the main area of concern when it comes to shaving. The flat-laying hair on the neck area are highly challenging for both electric shavers and manual razors. The ActiveLift Technology used in this Braun electric shaver is the solution to this problem. It allows the shaver to effortlessly lift the flat-laying hair and then cut it. The result is a quick and impressive shave.

OptiFoil Technology:

All the latest electric shavers from Braun have this highly impressive OptiFoil Technology. There’s a thin layer of foil on the blades of the shaver to avoid any contact with the skin. This allows the shaver to offer an impressive close shave without harming the skin in any way.

Flexible Shaving:

It has a pivoting head that adjusts automatically to the shape of your face. On top of it, the floating foils further enhances the flexibility of this shaver and it quickly gets acquainted with the shape of your face to deliver perfect results.

Precision Trimmer:

The back of the trimmer also has an extendible trimmer that you can use to trim or groom the mustache or sideburns.

Advanced Battery Display:

The Braun Series 7-760cc has an advanced battery display which precisely indicates the battery status and low charge.

Cleaning, Renew and Maintenance

A lot of Braun Series 7-760cc reviews on the internet suggest that its cleaning system is noisy. Yes, it does make a humming sound but it is not noisy at all. I love its clean and renew system and generally prefer using it rather than the manual cleaning as it is quick and much more hygienic.

The only downside of this shaver is that I need to replace the cartridge in every 2 to 3 months. But the cartridge is not expensive and is available at the local dealers shop or on the internet.

Battery

This Braun electric shaver comes with the latest 3.6V Li-Ion battery. It charges completely in an hour and can deliver up to 50 minutes of cordless shaving when fully charged. There’s also a quick charge feature if you don’t have enough time to wait for an hour. Simply charge the trimmer for 5 minutes and it will offer you with one uninterrupted, cordless shave.
As far as the battery maintenance is concerned, I prefer charging it completely. You should do the same as charging the battery incompletely reduces the life expectancy of the battery. Once fully charged, the battery easily lasts for 15-20 days when I shave on every other day.

User Friendliness

Alright, the shaver has an abundance of features, but are those features able to deliver what they promise? This part of the Braun Series 7-760cc review will discuss it.
This electric shaver is extremely comfortable to use. Apart from an amazing shaving performance, the fact that the shaver can be cleaned automatically without any kind of manual interference is surely the USP of this product. It comes with a travel case which I use on a regular basis as I like to carry my shaver while travelling. As compared to other electric shavers that require an additional accessory for charging them abroad, the 760 cc comes with a SmartPlug with automatic voltage adjustment that can be used throughout the world.

Shaving Performance

Every element in this shaver is designed to make sure that shaving is no more a time-consuming and annoying experience. Some new technologies and world-class parts have been used in this shaver to ensure that it can deliver exceptional results. Right from its OptiFoil Technology, Sonic Technology, ActiveLift Technology to the 2-different shaving modes, the 760cc is undoubtedly an amazing electric shaver.

Warranty

It comes with a standard 2-year manufacturer’s warranty. Moreover, it also carries a 60-day money back guarantee. This ensures that Braun is confident of its product and stands by its performance.

Value for Money

The Braun 760cc electric shaver is undoubtedly one of the best electric shavers and it has a great value in terms of money. If you look at its amazing features, you’ll see it has  a quite fair price. And believe me, it really does worth it.

Availability of Replacement Parts

While finding the small replacement parts of an electric shaver can be difficult, Braun’s popularity plays a crucial role to tackle this problem. The replacement parts for 760cc can be easily found at your local dealer’s shop. If it is not available there for some reason, you can easily find them on online stores like Walmart, Amazon, etc.

Final Thought

The main reason that creates a feeling of uncertainty when it comes to switching to an electric shaver is the belief that they are unable to offer you a clean and close shave. However, this electric shaver is the perfect example to get relief from this doubt. A close and clean shave is the reason that contemplated me to switch to this electric shaver. If you too want to make your shaving process easier, safer, and less time-consuming, the 760cc is a perfect product to choose.
Hope my Braun Series 7-760cc review was helpful and provided you with a lot of information about this shaver.

FAQ’s

1. I have a solo Braun Electric Shaver, can I buy the Clean and Renew Shaver for it?

A. No, not all the models of Braun are designed to fit in the Clean and Renew Station. The station and the shaver interlink during the process of cleaning and solo shavers do not come with this technology.

2. Can I make my own cleaning solution and fill it in the cleaning system?

A. No, due to the performance and safety reasons, no other liquid should be added to the cleaning system. The fluid in the station is made after extensive research and is perfectly suitable for cleaning the shaver properly. Using any other liquid will not clean the shaver and can also affect its performance.

3. Do I ever need to replace the head of the shaver?

A. Yes, you should change your shaver’s head once in every 18 months to ensure that your shaver is able to deliver the same smooth performance.
