    In my search for true wireless earbuds I spent a lot of time reading numerous reviews, and I ended up purchasing the Bose Soundsport Free, and the Bragi Dash Pro. Here's why I returned the Bose and kept the Bragi: PRICE Even on sale, these were about $80 more than the Bose, but they're also $50 below regular price which is significant to me. At this price point I would totally say they are worth the money. I might have even paid more for them. It's like you took every earbud out there and combined the features. COMFORT/FIT They are comfortable to a point, but the Bose eartips are way more comfortable. After a while these can hurt my ears (a couple hours). However, I am willing to live with that because they DON'T COME OFF WHEN SWIMMING OR JOGGING! Bragi's rep assured me that "no swim cap is needed. They won't come out." And they were right. I've been on multiple swims with these and the "seal" is better than any other underwater earpiece I've tried (3 of them). There is no such thing as an earpiece that won't let water in but with these it's minimal compared to others and the sound is great underwater. It's only a little tricky to use the controls when your fingers are wet. They do well when running but it is tricky to get the right seal/fit in your ear without it feel like someone is plugging your ear. It's easy to jam them in too far and then it's uncomfortable. Try the different tips and sleeves and adjust as necessary. It is also very low profile and inconspicuous compared to the Bose. The one thing I hated about the Bose is how bulky it is and how it sticks out of your ear. SOUND These sound good, not great. The Bose on the other hand has this rich, full, powerful sound that I think would be hard to beat. Although the Bragi has a better "seal" so you don't hear outside noise as much. The noise isolation is kinda incredible seeing how there's no active noise cancellation. There's a distinct difference between the foam eartips (better) and the fit sleeves. But the foam tips are not durable at all and are useless once they get too wet. 7.5/10 for Bragi sound vs 9/10 sound for Bose. For this price point it should sound better but it is still pretty good. BLUETOOTH/FEATURES Despite numerous negative reviews, I have not had major bluetooth connection problems with these. I think Bragi took feedback from the first version and improved it. Again, bluetooth connection isn't perfect with this but I experienced about the same level as the Bose, which was acceptable. I tried a couple of phone calls and that worked well too. It sounds a bit like the person on the call is in a vacuum but it comes out loud and clear. Not perfect but works well. The controls are amazing to me. They've managed to build the entire control system based on three actions - tap, swipe, and hold. It's relatively intuitive and after using it for a while it seems so simple (READ THE MANUAL PEOPLE). I also have had zero problems with the case and/or charging. This thing gets a pretty good charge and battery life and it seems even better when you use the internal music player. This is the #1 FEATURE to me - 4GB worth of music without bluetooth or streaming. AND it's water resistant? That is a home run. Another cool little feature is the ability to turn on or off (with a swipe) the ambient sound around you. You don't have to take the earbuds out when you pause your music and talk to someone. I won't talk about the iTranslate integration and other small features but I think it's clear that this is the future of true wireless earbuds. Bragi's Dash Pro does everything and does it well enough to justify a purchase. And this is THE only option if you want earbuds you can swim with AND has all these other features, and won't come out in the water. If they can improve on some of the little things the next iteration will probably blow the other brands out of the water. If you buy this, and learn how to use it properly (especially for swimming or running), you will wonder why you didn't get one sooner ;)

    I've been looking for bluetooth earphones primarily for making phone calls on the move (in car, airports, etc.) I read hundreds of reviews and tried others but was not happy until I got the Dash Pros. Fantastic phone call quality. No clipping or garbling. Almost no background noise for the other caller, even in the car with the window open. The ear bone mic takes the sound conducted through your body instead of fighting outside noise. And it still sounds like you on the phone. The multiple ways to manage actions is helpful. Use the phone, use touch interface, use your phone assistant (i.e. Siri) or use hands-free head gestures. I love nodding my head to accept or shaking my head to reject a call. I tried wearing them non-stop for long periods - they fit very well and are comfortable (minor irritation after a few hours with the charging pins, but really minor). Fit was great out of the box. No issues with looseness or falling out even with vigorous motion. Working out and moisture from sweat and shower are not problem for the Dash Pro and they stay in place. With occasional phone calls and listening to music I am getting about 5 hours of use on a charge. No bluetooth dropouts. Not one. While running, working out with my phone across the room. In the car. In the shower....not one dropout. Music quality? Pretty good. I'm not an audiophile, and if you are you should buy over-ear phones. But for earbuds it is pretty good. No active noise canceling but the passive is so good it is not necessary. I am very very very happy with these earphones. But I wasn't happy initially. I almost took them back. There was a problem charging (my personal charger didn't regulate the voltage well so I had to connect to another charger or my PC). Then I couldn't update the software because my computer didn't recognize the earbuds. The instruction and troubleshooting documentation is scattered and is poorly organized. Thankfully the online chat staff are helpful and the product is surprisingly intuitive, despite the complexity of the controls and software. You learn it quickly. Eventually, when I was past the point of despair, it was determined that my USB cable was to blame and when I switched cables everything clicked and I went from frustration to elation within seconds. The Bragi site link to the online store is broken so I can't create my account. The phone app gives me an error when I try to open the user manual. But other than that everything is great (now). Great product and despite some holes in the documentation the company seems solid and supports their product.

    Awesome!! (read the manual)

    The Dash Pro are probably the best headphones I have ever owned. I have bought and tried several high end headphones. (Bose, Sony, Astros, etc.). There is a process when you first get these headphones. Read the manual, there are several things you must do before updating and using these headphones. Make sure you use a charging brick that comes with your iPhone not your iPad. iPad charger won't charge the case and or the headphones. (Less than 12W power brick). Before updating these headphones make sure everything is fully charged. Read the manual!! Once the full setup process is done you are ready to you these bad boys. There is a learning curve to everything. So make sure you look over everything. You can turn lots of features on and off. So if you don't like something turn it off. I had to run one run with them to figure them out. It also helped me figure out what features didn't work for me. Touch lock will be your best friend when it comes to water. So make sure you know how to work that feature. The sound isn't the best ever. But it's the best I have heard when it comes to a workout headphone. Sound a lot better then AirPods. Bluetooth works perfectly in all environments I have been in. I have had no problems with connection. I do wish these headphones could connect to multiple devices like the AirPods. Unfortunately you have to repair them to use on a different device. But this process takes 15 seconds. So if you want that feature get the AirPods. But Bragi has told me they are working on a software update to fix that. Best workout headphones I have had. The on board music is the icing on the cake. Just having headphones for music when working out is a game changer. I plan to run a Marathon with these and qualify for Boston. Just spend the pretty penny and buy The Dash Pro. They are 100 percent worth it!!

    First off... these are expensive and I never considered buying headphones that would cost this much. I enjoy running and being active, and so far I've tried no less than 5 wireless headsets. My Sony's have been my favorite, and I've been looking at the new Bose earbuds - but I think they will be just as bulky as what I already have, and there's no touch interface. I read many reviews about the Bragi's and they were very mixed. Most agreed that the Dash Pro fixed most of the issues from the original Dash. I can't speak to the Bluetooth performance in much detail yet, but so far - no issues with my Galaxy S8+. After using them for a several hours today I'm very happy with them. The sound is great - clear highs and decent bass - very well balanced overall. It's not Bose great, but I'd give it 9 out of 10 (and I'm very picky about sound quality). The volume settings do not allow them to go overbearingly loud - I will probably mostly use them on the max volume setting. One tick louder might be helpful - but the max level is probably "safe" for long term listening. They could address that in a firmware update someday. The numerous included ear tips can help anyone find a good fit. They feel comfortable and will not fall out during activity. I haven't taken them out on a run yet, but it appears the heart rate sensor is compatible with MapMyRun - which is great! Features are top notch. I wanted low profile with touch controls. And these get a 10 out of 10 for both. There are gesture controls (moving your head) and a new feature where you tap your cheek (not the earpiece, your cheek near your ear) to initiate another function. Great ingenuity! You can use just the right earbud and remove the left one if you choose... but removing the right earbud stops functionality. I'm not sure yet, but I expect 4 to 5 hours of playtime, and the charging cradle gives an additional 4 or 5 more charges so I will pay attention and just make sure to charge the cradle a couple times a week and I should never be without the earbuds being fully charged. I'm hoping they continue to perform well. I paid the higher price for these to hopefully encourage Bragi to continue to innovate and develop a great product, which so far I feel this is.

      Hello Bryan,

      Thank you for taking the time to write such a great review of The Dash Pro and for giving them 5 stars. We really value feedback from our customers and comments such as “Id give it 9 out of 10” for sound from someone picky is the kind of thing that makes our day.
      We also love the fact you liked not only the touch controls but also the added gesture controls such as 4D menu, personally I love using this feature on the rowing machine where using hands is not possible. There are many other areas where this is useful.

      Thanks again Bryan, have a great day! Bragi

    I ignored the bad reviews and bought these. It was a mistake. First, it took about 2 hours to get them updated. This after charging for about 2 hours. I have fast internet. A fast computer. But it still took forever with several error messages I believe were Bragi's problem. Eventually got them paired and working. Figured out a sleeve that worked for my ears. Ok. So charged them up all night to use on my a.m. workout. Blue fully charged "breathing" lights. Had to look that up. The manual doesn't give clear instructions on colors/breathing charging states. Case led green. Good to go, right? But I take them out and now they're red, when they weren't just a moment ago in the charger. So no charge. Can't use. OK. Charge them for tomorrow. Put them on, go cycling. Dead after 30 minutes. Wind reduction doesn't really work. Neither does sound transparency. The wind reduction mostly reduces the noise the transparency creates for wind. That's it. Music sounds terrible. Can't hear the menu voice. Can barely hear and be heard during phone calls. Worked on couch and at the office ok. Sounded mediocre. Used for several hours a few times. They can hold a charge, so mine are not faulty. Hands free gestures are a nice feature. Practice charging so I don't have any more surprises. Second bike attempt. Fully charged, I understand all the features, etc. Made sure they are fully seated in charger, etc. Dead after 5 minutes! Are you kidding me? I returned them. This product needs work. They sound terrible. Transparenvcy didn't really work. Neither did wind reduction. Calls and menus on a bike were basically impossible. Worst problem is the charged indicators are unreliable. Charge them up, find out when you take them out they aren't. Or after a few minutes' use they aren't. Waste of time and money.

      Hello,

      We appreciate your review and your thoughts.

      We are very sorry to see you had some issues with your The Dash Pro and you didn't enjoy fully the features and all the great experience out of it. However, it seems like there were some things that could have been improved from the beginning. We are quite confident if you would have contacted our support team or check out our YouTube Channel in the section getting started, you would have solved most of the issues you described.

      The main issue here it seems like your The Dash Pro was not seating properly in The Charger, therefore The GoldenPins were not making contact with The Charger, this is why you had issues with the update as you mentioned. Note that the update process shouldn't take more than 10 min. This also generated in not being able to charge your device. It would also be interesting to know if you were using the USB cable provided by Bragi or a different one since this makes a big difference. This can only be identified with a nice chat.

      We are very sorry you didn't have the chance to get to experience the full experience and we will be more than happy to welcome back and provide you with all the support you might if contact our Customer Support Team.

      Best Regards from Munich

    Never heard of Bragi until I purchased these truly wireless buds. I can say that I really do enjoy them for their purpose however there are a few things that I feel need to be tweaked for the price point. (1) the bass should hit just a little harder. I get it though, these are noise cancelling so they shouldn’t be but so loud being that you are getting direct sound in ear but I feel a tad bit more base wouldn’t hurt. Also that were scratching sound when you hit max volume isn’t cool either. (2) I have moments of people telling me I sound like I am underwater when talking To them. I actually took my original pair back thanks to the Best Buy warranty because I thought they Were faulty. They may have been because it still happens just not as much. Or maybe I still have a faulty pair some how hmm ?? (Scratches head) (3) charging is cool but sometimes the color indicators throw me off. I’ve had times when I have place my buds on the ports in the case and they were not charging. When I try to use the They were dead. I also wish these had a form of fast charging added to them. They seem to charge quite slow. I’ve noticed that when I pick my buds up while they are in the case and should be fully charged they still flash blue. Granted blue is the color that indicates fully charged but are they still charging when I see it flashing like that. That’s all my negative points. A few plus factors in my book are They are so comfortable. That fit in so perfect ykunalmlst have to check to see if they are there. Periodically. Hearing People is amazing oh and the ambiant sound mode Is awesome. In my opinion aesthetically Head are the hottest thing on the market. Definitely a sleek low key design unlike the Protruding Bose truly wireless All InAll it’s a great head set though. I’ve tried to find reason to take them back and get something else however I still have them which says a lot. Great piece of tech and hopefully within the next gen or maybe with an update my minor issues could be tweaked.

    The Bragi Dash Pro earbuds were not in stock and were ordered online from the customer service counter. The ordered item was received according to the due date recommended. The package presented to me appeared factory sealed, and undamaged. Out of the box I found no volume coming from the left earbud. I reached out to technical support and found them to be friendly, but could not get the left earbud to produce sound. After searching the web I found similar challenges with the Bragi Earbuds. I read / watched numerous youtube reviews and there was no mention of the challenges. I returned the Bragi Earbuds and settled for Samsung Gear Icon X 2018. Where the Gear Icon X may lack in both features and an occasional drop off, the ear buds did function right out of the box. thumbs up for Gear Icon X Sorry Bragi I will look at your Earbuds in a year or so.

    I was really hoping to like these headphones, I've been looking for a good waterproof pair of headphones for a while so I could listen to some tunes while I am swimming. Unfortunately I just couldn't get these headphones to stay in my ears. I tried every tip that came with them and nothing was able to provide a secure fit for the pool. Also the sound quality and case design are a bit disappointing for headphones in this price range. I have a pair of Bose soundsport free headphones and they beat the Dash in: sound quality, fit and comfort, bluetooth connectivity, case design, and bluetooth pairing with other devices. The Dash however does have some great features that the bose are lacking, like heart-rate sensor, activity tracking, audio-transparency, 4gb internal music storage, and of course an IPX7 waterproof rating. I really really wanted to love these headphones but the comfort and fit, and audio quality for price were deal breakers for me. There is simply no way I would be able to take these swimming without having to fetch them off the bottom of the pool at least half a dozen times. My advise to anyone that picks these (or any headphones) is to put them through their traces while you still have time to return them. some brands just don't fit everyone very well.
