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:
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.
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.
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.
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 ;)
