Braun Shaver Reviews:

We found more reviews for mens Braun shavers that were very positive than for any other brand. Men's Health Magazine recently voted the Braun Pulsonic Series 7-790CC model 9595 as the best electric shaver on the market and Amazon customer feedback shows similar results. The 9595 sells for close to $200 so we understand that may be beyond what most of you want to spend on an electric shaver. No worries - Braun offers a huge variety including the Braun 8995 for $150 and the Braun Series 3 370 Men's Shaver for budget minded consumers at around $70. All these shavers will last you or your loved one a long time and many of the parts are replaceable like the screen foils or cutter blades. Which one is right for your? It depends on your shaving needs and how much you want to spend. I can say that having used several Braun shavers in my lifetime that each one will shave slighly different in terms of closeness, but all are very efficient and perform better than the competition.






I grew up using a Remington shaver during my teenage years and switched over to the affordable Philips Norelco cordless shaver for a while but after some persuading from my older brother I decided to switch from the rotary heads found on many Norelcos and try the foil shavers that are so popular with Braun. I did have to put out a little more money, but I have to say the results are promising. Consumer Reports puts out their yearly survey on electric shavers and you can follow their tests if you want. They tested electric shavers for battery life, closeness of shave, noise, and ease of cleaning. The Braun 360 Complete foil shaver did quite well in their tests and reviews we read online at Amazon were definitely positive as well. Epinions is another website loaded with customer feedback and comparisons on the top rated Braun shavers. See the entire listing of best selling Braun shavers here.

Best Braun Electric Shaver:

The award winning Braun Series 7- 790cc Pulsonic Shaver System is top rated on several websites including Amazon (see our detailed, hands-on review of the Braun Pulsonic here). The pulsonic technology is what sets this electric shaver apart from the competition. It delivers over 10,000 microvibrations per minute to your facial hair gets exposed and the shaver cuts through it effortlessly. There is no pulling or tugging of facial hair and you get a close cut with every stroke. The Power-Comb feature actually lifts hairs that tend to lie flat and allows the foil shaver to shave them. The foil pattern will reach all hairs no matter which direction they happen to grow in. What owners like the most is that once you are done shaving with this cordless electric shaver, just place it in the charging station and it will automatically get cleaned, lubricated and charged at the same time. The Braun 7 Series shavers are technologically advanced and offer the closest shaves available. The LCD display shows how much cordless shave time is left. Charge time is 1 hour and you get 50 minutes of cordless shaving from one charge. I use this model now and I can't say enough about it. One feature I appreciate is the automatic voltage adjustment so I can use the shaver while on business in Europe and not think twice about it.


Top Rated Braun Shaver:

Another popular shaver from Braun is the Braun Series 5-590cc Men's Shaving System which at $150 is cheaper than the 9595 model. The Gillette Blade Technology, on many Braun shavers, will cut your facial hair and leave your face feeling smooth and clean. The pivoting head with micro oscillations will get to all those had to reach areas on your neck and chin. If you have a few days of stubble, the 5-590cc from Braun will clean you up in no time. Again, the Clean & Renew System will keep the shaver in top working condition. The cordless shave time on the Braun 5-590cc is about 50 minutes and the quick charge time is 3 minutes. The voltage type is 100-240. Customer feedback on this model includes praise like "superb shaver", "man friendly", and "improvement over Norelco rotary shaver". You can find this model listed on Amazon.

Budget Braun Mens Shaver:

The Series 3 shavers from Braun are still considered an excellent product, although they are much cheaper than the high end Braun shavers. The Braun 3Series 340S-4 Wet & Dry Shaver is priced to sell at $60 and offers a contour hugging head, SmartFoil shaving capability, and a 3 stage cutting system for the closest shaves. It doesn't have the same cleaning system that the 8995 or the 9595 models, but you can still clean it by placing it under running water and washing it out that way. The LED panel display lets you know how much charge remains and it too features an automatic worldwide voltage adjustment.
