My Series 7 cutters last over a year

I have had nothing but good experience with my Braun Series 7 shavers (I bought a second one for a vacation home). My beard is pretty dense but they work well and easily last over a year. My only complaint is that the replacement heads are difficult to find in local stores.

Yes, I recommend this product !

Lucky if it lasts two months

The first set of foil/cutter lasted a lot longer. Now i am lucky if it last two months. I have to go over my face multiple times to get a smooth shave. I have the 5 series.

horrible design

like others have mentioned, the new design is painful to use. I have given up shaving my neck with the shaving head and use the trimmer instead. I liked this shaver, dont make me purchase a replacement from your competitors.

No, I do not recommend this product.

Not as good as Original

The original foil appeared to have non uniform holes at differing angles. The holes on the new ones are uniform and do not lift hairs as well. The shave is much worse now, takes longer and is not as comfortable.

No, I do not recommend this product.

Bad Foil and Cutter replacements`

I've owned my Braun 6520 Flex Integral razor for about 8 years, and liked it more than any other razor I ever used. I've replaced the cutter and foil 4 times during its life and gotten a great and comfortable shave every time. I just got the new Braun Series 3 31S replacement and from the first use it pulled my skin, didn't shave closely and was downright uncomfortable to use. I see from the other comments here that I am not alone. I will try to use my old foil and cutter for a few more months and if the design of the new foils hasn't been changed back, I will be looking for a new brand of razor.

No, I do not recommend this product.

Close shave, but pulls

I have had my 790 series razor for several years now. I have replaced the shaver head twice. I never had any problems with the original or first replacement head. However, the latest one I purchased has a tendency to pull almost every time I shave. This is not a pleasant experience. I love the close shave, but am not a fan of the discomfort/pain when it pulls a hair. I shave on a daily basis so this is not a case of going too long between shaves. I have read where Braun has changed the shape of the openings in the foil head and others experience the same problem with the new foil. This has happened right from the start of using the new foil, so it is not a case of it being worn out. While I like the close shave I am considering going back to my Norelco because of the pulling. I would be interested in hearing Braun's response.

Yes, I recommend this product !

Bad Foil and Cutter quality ..

Its been only 6 months that i bought the "Braun Series 7 790cc" ..I paid a good amount of money for this shaver and expected it to last a while .. i used to own a Panasonic shaved .. i have to say after using it for so many years it never broke apart on me.. the Foil and cutter of the Braun series & just fell apart in few month ..I do not recommend this product to any one.They have warrenty only for the shaver not for the foil and cutter. A $44 foil should have better quality than 6 months.

No, I do not recommend this product.

Piece of garbage. No longer a customer.

I rarely write reviews but I had to this time. These heads are pure garbage. After a short time they pull, irritate the skin, coils break, and occasionally even cut the skin. Braun, I know you can fix this problem. So why aren't you?! Maybe because these are much cheaper to make than the original heads that worked great. Now i have a $200 shaver that I can use because you decided to replace your good replacement heads with cheap garbage just to increase profits. I will not buy a single Braun product again until this problem is addressed.

No, I do not recommend this product.

I want my original replacement part

This new screen just doesnot works as well as the old one did. It pulls hair and doesnot capture the difficult ones. Please bring back the old innovative random perforated screen!!!!

No, I do not recommend this product.

Why did you go cheap on us?

I bought the top of the line Braun shaver for a reason... Now I can't get the same replacement foil/cutter that it came with... Why did you go cheap on the "new" design, if you haven't noticed, most people who buy your product don't mind spending a little more for quality. Big step backward...

No, I do not recommend this product.
