Shaver Features

Sonic Technology with 10,000 Micro Vibrations

The Series 7 shaver adapts its motor power to the density of your beard to provide the most thorough and comfortable shave from Braun. It delivers up to 10,000 micro vibrations per minute to capture and cut more hair in every stroke.

Three Personalisation Modes for a More Individual Shave

Series 7 is the only Braun shaver* with three different shaving modes: extra sensitive, normal and intensive modes for the different facial zones for an adjustable shave that best fits your beard and skin.

*As of March 2014

Patented ActiveLift

ActiveLift is a patented middle trimmer with 130 movements per second which actively lifts and cuts flat-lying hair. Many years of research show that men's biggest need in shaving is a thorough shave even in the hard-to-reach neck area where flat-lying hair often occurs. Featuring an asymmetrical shape, the ActiveLift is specifically designed to capture tricky hair in any problem area.

OptiFoil for the Closest Shave

The OptiFoil is the most advanced foil from Braun. The unique geometry with ergonomically-sized holes allow the shaver to capture more hair and cut them deeper. Braun has more than 50 years of foil evolution experience culminating in OptiFoil.

Fully Flexible Shaving System

Braun’s combination of pivoting shaver head and floating foils ensure maximum facial adaptability.

Braun Clean & Renew System

The Series 7 799cc features the automatic and simple four-step Clean & Renew System with FastClean. It hygienically cleans, charges, lubricates and dries your shaver at the touch of a button. As the inventor of the Cleaning Center, Braun has more than 10 years of experience in getting your shaver to optimal performance. This is why Braun is the only brand using alcohol cleaning fluid which eliminates 99.999% of all germs and bacteria in every cleaning process. Tests have shown that using the Cleaning Center is up to 10 times more hygienic than simply rinsing it under tap water. Moreover, more than 150 consumers confirmed a noticeably closer shave and better skin comfort after regular usage of the Cleaning Centre. A Clean & Renew Refill Cartridge can be replaced around four to six times a year and makes your shaver feel like new.

  • Alcohol-based cleaning solution for hygienic cleaning
  • Automatic charging
  • Automatic lubrication for optimal cutting efficiency
  • Automatic program selection from three modes: short eco / normal / high intensive -- Series 7 only

Braun 799cc-6 Series 7 Wet & Dry Men's Electric Shaver Reviews

My rating says it all!!

Was delivered as predicted. Have only used it for five days (since I have had it!). I have not used an electric razor for ........ years and was not expecting this to be as good as it is! It terms of closeness and ease of use it is as good as a traditional wet shave. Thoroughly recommend it.

The best.......

Usual great service from Olympic shavers! Ive had many Braun shavers over the years, but the Series 7 W&D is undoubtedly the best yet, and as near to a wet shave that you'll get! Yes they may be expensive, but you arent paying the RRP, happy days! I know where I'll be going when ever I need a replacement..............

The best shave I've had in my life

I did have my doubts that the shaver would be as good as the reviews but it really is. I've had other rechargeable shavers and they have all been disappointing. I have tried using a triple blade wet shaver, which was no better. It's very quick and leaves the skin smooth and I've not had any irritation using it. The service from Shavers is impressive too; I ordered around lunchtime and it arrived well packed at around 9:00 am the following day. A very good experience!
