Braun Series 7 replacement foils

I have owned the series 7 for many years now and the shaver itself is great but the replacement foils are terrible. The availability of these foils are so sparse that it just doesnt make sense in keeping my shaver. Wanted to upgrade it to the latest series 9 and I cant find 1 shop anywhere internationally to purchase a foil. I can not invest good money into a good shaver where the manufacturer carries next to no parts.

No, I do not recommend this product.

Was best. Now one of worst.

This razor was one of the worlds best when made in Germany with 80+ % approval rating. The Chinese made version is currently 12% , mainly due to the shoddily made shaving heads. Wake up Braun. We are all trying to tell you the same thing for your own good. Your Chinese made shaving heads are shocking compared to your German made ones.! After 40 years with Braun I am going to look at your competitors. Even the cheap ones cannot be worse.

No, I do not recommend this product.

36 months and still giving perfect shave.

This razor is still giving a perfect shave after over 36 months on original foil. It is used daily or sometimes twice in conjunction with shave oil on my face.

Yes, I recommend this product !

Braun series 7 replacement foil and cutter.

Braun series 7 replacement foil and cutter, 3 Braun shavers I have had in the past, cannot believe the rip off prices for replacement foil and cutters, time to change to a different brand.

No, I do not recommend this product.

Replacement head failure

The quality of the Series 7 replacement head is terrible. My last 3 shaver heads all broke less than a year. Braun should really look at all the poor review and improve on their design and quality control. A constant waste of money.

No, I do not recommend this product.

Braun The Braun Team 30 August, 2018

This certainly isn't the Braun quality you should be receiving from us and please be assured that we'll be passing your experience along to our team. In the meantime, we do want to let you know that a foil and cutter should last up to 18 months, depending on your shaving method, beard type and how well and often you clean it. To prevent this from happening in the future, be sure to use light pressure when shaving. Pressing too hard can shorten the lifetime and cause damage to the foil. If you have a thicker beard, you may be shaving longer each day which can reduce the lifetime of the foil. Always hold the shaver at a 90 degree angle along with cleaning and oiling it regularly. We can always be reached at (800) 272-8611 for any further questions, concerns or comments. We're always here to help!

Manufacturing change ruined my Braun experience.

I've used Braun shavers my entire adult life (20 years). They have always worked great. When my last braun shaver, after years of faithful service, finally gave up the ghost I upgraded to the series 7.The Series 7 did a great job for a couple of years but then the design on the replacement foil head changed. Before the foils had lots of irregularly shaped holes. The new design has uniform circular holes.I'm not sure if it is the shape of the holes, some other change that also happened with other components to the razor head, or a combination but now my series 7 feels like sandpaper on my skin and it literally takes the better part of an hour of running it over my face to get anywhere near the shave that the old design gave in just a couple of minutes.I managed to find an older razor head still for sale on e-bay and swapped the old and new designs back and forth to compare and it is definitely the new head design that is killing the series 7's performance.Unfortunately after using it for 2 years that last old style replacement head is pretty worn and it looks like I'll have to finally leave Braun to find something that actually works.

No, I do not recommend this product.

Hi, James. I am sorry the Series 7 shaver isn't giving you the close and smooth shave. I do understand that this can be very frustrating. I do appreciate your commitment to Braun over the past twenty years and for sharing your feedback. As you are aware, when you try a new razor for the first time, it can take your skin a little bit of time to get used to the new shaver. I hope with this knowledge, you will continue to us Braun for your shaving needs.

Impossible to find replacement heads

Shaver is pretty good, but it is impossible to find replacement heads for the series seven.

BraynMan says...

Great shaver, but terrible service and quality control on replacement heads. Just look at the re-sellers bullying the prices. Braun needs to fix their inventory and make these products more readily avalaible.

No, I do not recommend this product.

Terrible stock quantity and quality control

My husband purchased this product after giving the 5 to our son. The new razor heads only last him about 3 months and now the cost is astronomical. Looks like P&G wants to push customers to other companies. I called to complain and got the excuse that it is the most widely used razor and so they ran out of shaving heads. A company with good management and good forecasting should be able to run their manufacturing much more efficiently. I absolutely would not recommend this product nor would I purchase any stock of this company as obviously it suffers from poor management.

No, I do not recommend this product.

Great shave gone horrible

I'm a 20+ year, loyal Braun shaver. In May I gifted a Series 7 to my recently graduated son as he began his career. He reported horrible shave experience...pulls, requires several passes and still not picking up hairs, etc. Of course I responded with, "give it time for your face to get used to it." Four months later he still hated it. So I gifted him a new block/foil (70s). When he reported no improvement, I gifted him a Norelco...to which his response was, "wow! Wish you had given me this the first time. Dad, you should try this one." Well, I may finally do that. When he visited in November he brought his "old" Braun shaver and both blocks home for me. I tried both blocks in his razor and mine and, sadly, my results were horrible. Worst shave I've had in 20 years. As a rule, I have always bought replacement blocks in pairs. So I pulled out my "new" block and had the same horrible shave. So all in, three "new" blocks...two replacements and one with a new razor. All with horrible results. So very sad. Looks like all good things come to an end. I guess it's hello Norelco for me.

No, I do not recommend this product.
