After a successful Kickstarter campaign that raised over $3.3 million to help take the Bragi Dash wireless headphones into production, those that missed the Kickstarter campaign will next month be able to purchase a pair priced at $299.
The Bragi Dash wireless headphones have been designed to provide the world’s first wireless smart in-ear headphones that are capable of not only providing access to 1,000 songs from their internal storage, but also include body sensors for performance tracking as well as offering users a secure fit in-ear.
The Dash headphones also come complete with their very own travel case which doubles as a rechargeable battery pack to make sure your headphones are fully charged and ready when you need them. Dash explains more.
Music is a part of everyone’s life. It brings joy, excitement and motivation. However it is not always a pleasure listening to music with headphones. Cables tangle, pull at the headphones and ultimately break. In addition, accessing online content from a smartphone is awesome but needing to carry a smartphone all the time can be a real pain.
The Dash consists of a pair of discrete and completely wireless stereo earphones.They will playback music through a Bluetooth connection or use the embedded 4GB/1000 song music player. Everything about the design is focused on delivering freedom of movement, incredible sound and comfort. The Dash is awesome for sports and great for everything else.
The Dash works in sympathy with the wearer. Movements like pace, steps, cadence and distance are tracked. Heart rate, oxygen saturation and energy spent are measured, all the while real time acoustic feedback is provided. It even works without an attached smartphone.
Safety and the ability to communicate with others are important. In addition to being earphones, the Dash will double as a Bluetooth Headset delivering clear voice quality through the embedded ear bone microphone. The ear bone microphone is not sensitive to background noise, since it picks up mechanical vibration generated by your voice from the ear bone.
