The German company Bragi has created Dash – the first “truly wireless earbuds”. Connecting to each other using technology called near-field magnetic induction (NFMI), the smart headphones are completely free from wires. That means you no longer have to untangle your headphones like last year’s holiday lights or get them ripped out of your head mid-treadmill stride.
Dash can be used either as headphones or as a personal assistant. Armed with more than 150 micro-components, 27 sensors, and a 32-bit processor, these powerful earbuds can recognize gestures and at the same time, play high-quality sounding music. Dash is able to recognize motion and can answer phone calls with a simple head nod or decline calls with a shake. The touch-sensitive surface positioned above the right ear controls your music (play, pause, volume, track, playlist) and the left ear bud manages Bragi’s companion app.
Connected by Bluetooth technology, the iOS/Android compatible Dash comes with full suite of fitness related programs. Whether it’s tracking your heart rate during a 5K run or tracking breaths while swimming, Bragi’s Activity Tracker doubles as a personal fitness trainer. If you’re a swimmer, surfer, snowboarder or skier this may be the best set of headphones you can buy. Dash is wireless, waterproof, and comes with VersantTM advanced voice technology from Knowles. This allows you to have a hands-free phone conversation whether it’s taking place in blizzard conditions or in a crowded airport.
From Knowles’ Balanced Armature Speakers to three different FitTip sizes, Dash earbuds offer a bone-conduction acoustic experience that rivals premium quality headphone manufacturers. Since it has close to 4 gigs of internal storage, you’re able to use Dash as a stand-alone music source instead of relying on external playlists. Dash offers close to four hours of wireless play time. The carrying case recharges the buds a few times giving you an entire day of life.
So why would someone purchase Dash wireless headphones? For one, freeing yourself from wires in exchange for a hands-free listening experience makes everything more convenient whether you’re at the gym or commuting to work. Secondly, whether it’s outdoor recreation or adventure sports, someone with an active lifestyle can benefit from the ever-growing list of fitness-related applications. With the goal of transforming into your optimal self, Bragi’s Dash can be your personal trainer by tracking performance data. Finally, if a big part of your day consists of listening to music and you want a premium quality sound system, Dash’s bone-induction microphone revolutionizes the acoustic experience.
