There are fundamental similarities across all of Braun’s recent shaver lines. Whether the Braun 760cc, or Braun 790cc, or the latest Braun 799cc, the lineage is clear. Yet, with so many models to choose from, narrowing your pick down to the one right for you can seem daunting. To overcome the dilemma is simple: drill down to the details.
The Braun 799cc is probably the best shaver the company has produced yet. Considering their long history of excellent products, that’s quite a statement. But it’s not hard to provide some compelling reasons to believe it.
At first blush, it hardly seems worth the effort to write a review comparing all the different models of the Braun CoolTec collection. The CT2s, CT2cc, CT4cc, and CT5cc are so much alike you might think it’s not worth your time to read it. Still, you’re not looking for just any electric shaver, even within the Braun lineup, but the exact one best for you.
The CoolTec CT5cc is in fact like many other shavers from Braun, especially a Series 3. With it and the rest of the CoolTec line the company shows again why it remains in the top tier. It does everything you’ve come to expect from them, and equally as well, adds something new.
The Braun LS 5160, also known in some places as the Braun Silk Epil 5160 or Braun Silk & Soft 5160, is a decent middle-of-the-pack ladies electric shaver. It’s attractive and offers a close shave in the shower or on the go. This ladies shaver is a wet/dry, floating foil, cordless model with a bikini trimmer and other attachments. Beyond that plain description lies a number of fine features and welcome performance.
Not everyone is an ‘electric shaver guy’. I respect that. But if you are, or are thinking of becoming one, it would be hard to beat the Braun 790cc (790cc-4) shaver. It is so well made, and so effective, it’s hard for me to see how they could improve it substantially. No doubt Braun does and their engineers must be working on the next version right now. Until then, this model is as good as it gets – and that’s very good indeed.
The Braun 760cc (760cc-4) shaver is part of Braun’s super premium Series 7 line. It’s amazingly well developed. But, then, Braun has a long history of making superb electric shavers and the 760cc is a good case in point. Although a bit pricey, when you add up all the razors you buy in five years, the score pretty much evens up. Add in the superb quality of the shaver and cleaning system, and the excellent shave, and it looks far better.
