If you are retiring an 8595 model Braun, you will find some things in this model you may not like as well. Let's start with the strengths. The shave is great--smooth, easy to shave difficult areas like the jawbone and the neck. Cleaning is easy, especially if you are travelling--rinse head under hot water while shaver is on. No more brushes. The battery is Li-ion, which is an improvement over the NIMh in the 8595.

On the downside, the trimmer, which pops out at 90 degrees, works well for trimming sideburns, but not much else. With the 8595, the trimmer was easy to use for trimming the neck between haircuts. This trimmer doesn't work well for that because of the 90 degree angle. The lock on the tilt of the shaving head being located on the shaving head, is not as easy to engage as it was on the 8595 which just requred a quick movement of the thumb on the slide control. The lock on this shaver often takes two hands to engage. Finally the display does not give you as much information as the 8595. There is a series of black squares which turn green as the battery uses up the charge. When there is one square remaining, you have to guess if you can get one more shave or not. The 8595 had a similar display using a battery in which the black disappeared as the battery ran down, this changed to a minute counter at 9 minutes which told you exactly how many minutes you had left. The 8595 would also tell you how long your last shave was so you could determine if you had enough charge for one more shave.

Bottom line: Great shaver with some loss in utility and useful information from previous models and it is a bit clumsier to lock the tilt of the head.

Not as good as my old Pulsonic

II've had a Braun Pulsonic for several years and have been very satisfied with it, so when needing a new shaver I naturally bought a Braun 7-790. The 7-790 does not shave near as close as the my old pulsonic, even when I have it on the most aggressive setting. Comparing the old pulsonic with the 7-790, it appears the difference is in the foil design. I will return the shaver to Braun and try a differnt brand.

    I've owned several shavers over the years. This model, by far, out performs my previous shavers, including a different model Braun. Finally, a shaver that will actually cut those oddball growing facial hairs.

    Comments about Braun Series 7-790 Pulsonic Shaving System, 1 ea:

    I always used Norelco shavers. Always had hair pulling when beard got a little long between shaves. But with the Braun 7-790 there is no pulling or iritation. I never write reviews of products nor even believe reviews sometimes, but if i write how happy i am with a product, you can believe it.

    Comments about Braun Series 7-790 Pulsonic Shaving System, 1 ea:

    I was new to electric shaver. I ordered top of the line Philips norelco but that shaver is not for me specially for those who has sensitive skin, so ending up returning rotary shaver and got this one.
    The first without any irritation you can get the best close shave that you get with manual razor shaving with both direction.

    The rotary shaver first time i tried feel good but right after couple of seconds i had irritation skin and neck sensitive area few blood spot. I almost gave up electric razor but then i tried this foil and i am glad that i did.

    I am never going back manual razor.

    I did recommend to 3 my friends and they all tried and loving it. You can not go wrong with lots of positive reviews.

        I was replacing an old Series 3 Braun, and I'd waited a long time to buy a new one. I bought "the best" Braun I could find, expecting to be impressed, but it really disappointed me. It takes over 20 minutes to shave, and it still doesn't shave close. Will probably return it and try a different brand.

            Thus shaver is all but completely worthless. I have owned it for more than two years and I still find it very difficult to use, One has to go over and over their skin to get a clean shave. Even then, there will be loose hairs galore! All adjustments do not work.
            Plus, alcohol is the first product on the ingredients list which makes it impossible to import, The shipment must go by road in-order to import.

                  Braun Series 7-790 Pulsonic Shaving System

                   – Every man needs to shave at some point. Even a bearded man needs to trim the beard and clean up the neck. Bearded men can also use a shaver to style the beard into a mustache, mutton chops or a short boxy beard that runs along the jawline. Whether you're going for a smooth shave or a trim, professional beard, the Braun Series 7-790 Pulsonic Shaving System can help. This shaver from the respected Braun brand uses patented Pulsonic Technology that helps eliminate virtually every hair on your face, resulting in a smooth, clean face after your shave.

                  The Smoothest Shave Possible



                  The Braun Series 7-790 Pulsonic Shaving System offers ActiveLift technology to lift your hairs off your face as well as OptiFoil – a foil cover over the blades that allows them to trim closely without damaging the skin. Both of these advanced technologies ensure that your Braun Series 7 shaver will give you the smoothest shave possible. This shaver also comes with a fully pivoting head so that you don’t have to work hard to maneuver the shaver over the various contours of your face. To personalize your shaving experience, you can choose between intensive and extra sensitive modes when shaving different parts of your face. The shaver comes with everything you need, too: the shaver, a cleaning component and cartridge, a travel case and a charge cord. The Braun Series 7 Shaver with its matchless sonic technology is here to revolutionize your shaving experience.
