News

"The original Dash earbuds promised audio playback, a built-in media player and fitness tracking all wrapped in one truly wireless package. But it offered a merely good experience, and never really mastered any of its designated tasks. Bragi's new Dash Pro makes the same claims, but this time actually followed through with better sound and more solid connectivity, though it's still slightly pricey.

The design of the Pro hasn't changed much from the original, and that's a good thing, because Pocket-Lint feels that the shape and finish were "arguably the earphones' best feature." Digital Trends says the Pro "turned plenty of heads on the bus," with the touch controls giving them that "futuristic feeling." However, Pocket-Lint also says that the capacitive nature of the buttons made them hard to find with your fingers and easy to hit accidentally. The fit also stayed the same, with the overall comfort level dependent on which tips you put on them. 9to5Mac found they felt natural, while Macworld noted they started to feel uncomfortable after about an hour. Your best bet in this area is the custom edition by Starkey, but you'll have to shell out $600 for the privilege.

A snug fit is key to getting the best audio experience, and once you've got that nailed you should be pleased by the Dash Pro's sound quality, which is a vast improvement over the original. Wareable was surprised by its "full sound" and "impressive clarity," though Forbes believes bassheads might be a bit disappointed by the "lack of oomph," even as an improvement over the first generation Dash.

Wired headphones and even a few Bluetooth sets have Bragi beat in audio, and even price -- at $329, the Dash Pro is bit steep for someone looking to make the leap into true wireless. But few of its competitors offer as many features, so whether you shell out the cash depends on how badly you want to converge your music and fitness needs into one tiny set of earbuds."
