Our 1st Choice: Braun Series 7 790 CC

Our first electric shaver in this series comes all the way from the German Tech Industry known as Braun.

The Braun Series 7 is no doubt the most popular series ever built by this company to date. The model 790cc is the most sold electric shaver of all time.

Undoubtedly, it is still the best electric shaver out there and number 1 in our list. Enough praise, let’s get into the business now.

The shaver provides amazingly close and smooth shave as compared to others in our lineup.

Series 7 790cc is quite different regarding features from other electric shavers. The face of this electric shaver has three trimmers.

Two of them are called “OptiFoil” while the one within the other two, is called “ActiveLift.” The OptiFoil trimmers help the electric shaver to cover more facial hairs in fewer strokes while the ActiveLift contributes to cut out the short and in-grown hairs.

Not to forget that this is a Pulsonic electric shaver, which produces 10,000 micro-vibrations per minute, which helps the shaver to capture more and more hairs in each stroke. There is also a pop-up trimmer for trimming beards, mustache, and sideburns.

Overall, the Braun Series 7 790cc is my all time favorite and best electric shaver 2018 out there in the market. The built quality is great, three trimmers, pivoting head, personalization modes, and cleaning dock are enough for a comfortable and close shave.

Other than that, this is one of the most budget-friendly electric shaver available in the market. The price is very low as compared to others in our lineup.

The electric shaver has a sleek look with chrome plastic.

This electric shaver works in the same way as the above 790cc, the only difference is that 9095cc contains one extra trimmer known as “Direct & Cut”.

This additional trimmer helps the shaver align the hairs that grow in different directions and then cut those out.

Other than that, the ActiveLift trimmer from 790cc is replaced by the Hyper Lift Trimmer, which is a bit more advanced and helps to remove the flat hairs.

The Braun 9095 Pulsonic Shaver produces 40,000 cross-cutting actions per minute, please don’t mix it up with the 10,000 micro vibrations of 790cc. It provides a bit more close shave than 790cc, the difference is not that much to amaze. Pop-up trimmer is also there.

Braun Series 9 9095cc has all of the features of 790cc and it also has the Wet&Dry technology, which helps the user to use this electric shaver either on dry skin or with shaving gel for sensitive skin.
