Product Description

As the only electric shaver with a four-way moving head, Braun’s Syncro System is set apart from other models. Its head both pivots and oscillates to enlarge the foil holes by 60% more than on other Braun shavers, capturing more facial hairs in a single glide. Additionally, the Syncro Shaver’s three-stage shaving system provides a closer and cleaner shave--the first foil shaves stubble and shorter hairs, the integrated cutter lifts and trims close-lying or curled hairs, and then the second foil shaves them off. An extendable trimmer also pops up for shaving longer hair, such as mustaches or sideburns. For added comfort and to reduce nicks and cuts, the head adjusts to the contours of your face.

The Syncro System operates either via a cord or cordless for up to 50 minutes (or two to three weeks of daily shaves) following a 60-minute charge. Smart Logic technology ensures that the battery is always operating at its peak. Ideal for travel, this shaver adjusts to any international voltage standards and comes with a travel pouch and a cleaning brush. --Cristina Vaamonde

Editor's note: This is a reconditioned shaver. Reconditioned generally means that the shaver has been returned to the manufacturer from the retailer due to packaging damage. Each shaver undergoes extensive testing, cleaning, and repairs to bring it back to like-new condition. Includes a 2-year warranty against defects, excluding the foil and cutter block.

This shaver works great! I previously owned a Braun 4000 series, and the first thing I noticed was how much faster the motor runs on this shaver. It's weight and profile fit my hand perfectly. The shave is close and smooth, and I'm finished faster than with my previous shaver.

Although reconditioned, it looks just like a new unit, except for the sticker that identifies it as factory serviced. It was completely clean and had no cosmetic flaws at all.

Although the unit is advertised as having the "Smart Logic" system for battery maintenance, the unit I received did not have this feature. Completely discharging the unit every six months and recharging it will recondition the battery. This is the same thing that the Smart Logic feature does automatically.

The shaver works so well that I didn't even consider returning it on this minor point, but buyers should be aware that they might not receive a model that includes the feature - I didn't.

Overall, I highly recommend this shaver.

As of today's date (04/18/10) I've had this shaver for 6 years. I've replaced the shaving cutters and screen a few times, and it still shaves great. The battery shows no sign of fatigue, and continues to hold a charge for over a week.

I owned several Remington Microscreen 3000 shavers over a number of years with good results. Unfortunately these no longer are made in USA and their Chinese imports are inferior . . . so I decided to try this reconditioned top of the line Braun model and was very pleased with the results. The shaver cannot be told from brand new except for the removable "factory reconditioned" sticker. The price was a fraction of a new one. The Syncro model works fast, gives very close shaves and is easy to hold. The advantage of the 7526 over the 7505 (also available reconditioned) is the red warning light that tells when the battery is getting low and it's time to recharge. I understand that battery life is prolonged by letting the shaver cycle down instead of plugging in the charger cord every few days. I was surprised that I got 30 shaves before the light first came on, indicating 20 percent of battery life was left. There was no slowing of the shaver's speed at this point.For weekly cleaning I simply push two buttons and the head assembly lifts up but doesn't come off. Turn on the shaver upside down and the clippings vibrate neatly into the sink. Then snap the head back in place. As for not having the clean and charge stand (that doesn't come with the reconditioned models) I don't think this expensive to refill accessory really is necessary as I use a aerosol shaver cleaner/lubricant along with the supplied brush for thorough cleanings which are only occasionally needed -- and the 7526's red signal light tells me when to recharge instead of the charger stand doing this automatically.A few words about the seller. Not only was Amazon's price the lowest, but they offer a money back guarantee of satisfaction and free shipping for orders over $25.Read more ›

When looking for a replacement cutter block for my Braun Flex Integral I saw the "reconditioned" Syncro 7526. Since the batteries in my Flex were starting to go, it seemed like a good deal on a new shaver. I prefer foil shavers and have owned three Braun shavers over the years. Each one seems to get better. So far I don't have a single complaint about the Syncro 7526. It gives a close, comfortable shave and I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a foil shaver. The "reconditioned" Syncro 7526 does NOT include the clean/charge stand. It comes in a plain cardboard box with the power cord, cleaning brush, and a soft carry case.

I bought one of these reconditioned units about 4 months ago, replacing an aging Norelco. I've been very happy with it.

++ Noticeably closer shave than my Norelco Lift-and-Cut
++ Less likely to cut me too!
++ Very good price, compared to a new and complete system
++ Reconditioned unit looked brand-new and totally clean
++ Multi-voltage and frequency for international travel
-- Much more likely to scatter stubble onto the countertop
-- Not adept at shaving 2+ days of growth. When in this situation, I use my old Norelco to get the bulk, and then use the Braun to finish.
?? Uncertain of the durability or cost of the expendable parts


A couple months ago, the switch on my Braun shaver failed -- it was stuck in the ON position. I had to let it run until the battery was depleted. A bit of work with a web search engine showed my problem is not an isolated incident -- there is clearly a design or materials defect.

I emailed Braun, which is owned by Gillette, reporting the problem, my search findings, and asked them to either repair my shaver for free or to send me a reconditioned unit. Braun/Gillette declined, citing it was out of warranty. This is true -- it is out of warranty by one year (it carried a three year warranty) but I had expected they would stand behind their product. We exchanged a couple more emails but they would not budge.

Being very electro-mechanical, I decided to take it apart to see if I could repair it myself. This turned out to be an impossible task -- it's not repairable -- almost everything is glued-together.
