Braun Series 7 760cc Review

Bottom Line

A three-setting adjustable shaving head makes the Braun Series 7 shavers great for any skin and beard combination, and the Series 7 760cc is the best value of the bunch. Owners say it's relatively quiet, feels great in your hand, and that the basic cleaning/charging dock works well.

Breaking it down


A quick, clean shave for just about everybody. The Series 7 760cc has fewer bells and whistles than the Braun Series 7 790cc (Est. $175), but reviewers say it delivers the same close, comfortable shave for a little less money. A flexible foil head contours to tricky areas, and three shaving settings accommodate different skin and hair types. Most reviewers say the 760cc works equally well on sensitive skin and tough, coarse beards, even if your beard hair grows in different directions. Users also add that this shaver has no problem dealing quickly with several days' worth of beard growth. The Braun Series 7 760cc's pop-up trimmer is shorter than on some earlier models; it has a slight curve "like a kitchen knife" and sticks out from the shaver body at a slight angle. Once users get used to it, they usually see the new trimmer as an improvement.

Ease of use

Feels good in your hand. Users say that the Braun Series 7 760cc feels great in your hand; the shaver's body is shaped more like a banana than a bar of soap, with the shaving head tilted slightly inward. There's also a rubberized covering that helps maintain a secure grip. The cleaning base for the Series 7 760cc is also said to work very well; just drop the shaver into the base, shaving foils down. The Series 7 760cc will run for 50 minutes on a single 60-minute charge. It also offers a five-minute quick-charge feature. The 760cc also has an indicator light that reminds you when to change the foils.


In the ear of the beholder. Expert tests show the 760cc to be on a par with other foil shavers, and it receives a "Very Good" noise rating in testing from a major consumer research organization. Users don't always agree, however, and notes that noise is one of the most common complaints users voice about this Braun Series 7 shaver.


Standard warranty, great exchange period. The Braun Series 7 760cc comes with an industry-standard two-year warranty and a longer-than-usual 60-day money-back guarantee. Users generally say that they are happy with this shaver's quality and durability.
