The Dash Pro, is the next generation wireless device that features a unique personalized experience. Powered by Bragi OS 3 (BOS 3), Bragi, The world’s first smart earbuds maker, has been on a mission to bring together artificial intelligence (AI), mixed reality, service enablement and cognitive learning in a single product. Their story began with 15,998 backers who contributed over $3.3 million (USD) on crowdfunding platform Kickstarter. Since then, the company has evolved from a promising startup to a market moving creator of innovative technology. Opening a new category of Hearables, Bragi wants to transform the world of new wireless earbuds by offering freedom of movement, maximum comfort and amazing sound – all while audibly coaching, tracking accurate movement and capturing key biometric data.The Dash Pro

The Dash Pro

Designed to improve the quality of life for its end user, the Dash Pro is a polished, reloaded and re-engineered sequel to The Dash. Pushing innovation forward, the device features real-time language translation through a partnership with iTranslate and a Virtual 4D Menu which allows it to be controlled with gestures and verbal commands.

The Dash Pro offers best-in-class, professional grade Bluetooth connection quality and amazing audio without interruption. A simple one-touch setup connects Android, Apple or Windows devices in a matter of seconds. The Dash Pro carries up to five hours of battery life on a single charge and five charges (up to 30 hours on the go), also best in the true wireless category.

Also, The Dash Pro brags critically acclaimed audio transparency, carried over from The Dash. It allows desired sound to pass through The Dash Pro, or cancelling out what you don’t want to hear. Knowles® Balanced Armature Speakers deliver premium sound in an ultra-small package to enhance comfort and listening pleasure. Knowles Versant™ advanced voice technology helps deliver clearest possible hands free communication and voice commands in the most adverse situations, reducing the need to look at a second device.

Bragi’s custom fit smart earbuds translate up to 40 languages in real time.

“The Dash Pro tailored by Starkey and The Dash Pro are the most intelligent devices of their kind, representing incredible advancement and achievement over the last 18 months,” said Bragi Founder & CEO Nikolaj Hviid. “These magical devices have seamless Bluetooth pairing and connectivity, a longer-lasting battery life and groundbreaking achievements like real-time language translation powered by iTranslate, a 4D menu allowing users to go hands-free and integration with IBM Watson’s famed AI. We’re excited to enable people to do more.”

When it comes to specifics, The Dash Pro contains more than 150 micro-components, a 32-bit processor, artificial intelligence powered by Dash AI and 27 sensors. Which must be a world record if anyone is counting. They are all packaged in something the size of your fingertip, the sensors help ignite Bragi’s unique Kinetic User Interface, which enables users to literally turn their body into an interface with a tap of the cheek or a nod of the head through the Virtual 4-D menu.

The Dash Pro tailored by Starkey

Bragi and Starkey share a unique vision. A partnership brokered between the two companies in 2016, they are together, empowering people to communicate and enhance their abilities more naturally. Their collaboration makes sense because Bragi brought to the table advanced integration of sensors that provided value to Starkey’s consumers. While Starkey’s knowledge of advanced audio processing, and psychoacoustics expanded Bragi’s potential to enable people to utilize Fourth Platform (contextual computing) interfaces.

Smart Earbuds

On their collaboration, Brandon Sawalich, Senior Vice President, Starkey Hearing Technologies shared, “We are thrilled to announce the launch of the Dash Pro tailored by Starkey Hearing Technologies. As The World’s First Custom-Made Wireless Ear Computer, this product is going to empower consumers to lead with confidence in everything they do. Our partnership brings a whole new dimension of personalization and customization to hearable technology to the market.”

The two companies have ensured that the Dash Pro has the ability to enable athletes, musicians, content creators, technophiles and other precision-based fields to see the real benefits of having a personalized and customized audio device made just for them. The hearable category has been touted as ‘the next biggest thing in technology’ for some time now. Each Dash Pro tailored by Starkey device is crafted based on an exact impression of the user’s ear canal for the best isolation and a perfect fit with an emphasis on clarity, detail and no loss of bass frequencies. HearClear replaceable WaxGuards allow for long-term wear and minimal cleaning. 

The Dash Pro’s design has undergone careful exterior alterations from The Dash. The aluminum slider is now gun metal with a Bragi blue or Starkey gold leather inlay. Unfortunately, The Dash Pro is exclusively available in black. In addition Bragi announced the launch of BOS 3 and those who own the original version of The Dash can upgrade to BOS 3 through the Bragi Updater. The Dash Pro retails for 329 USD (349 including VAT in the EU), which is only 50 EU more than The Dash, and is available right now through the Bragi Shop. They have also done a rollout to major retailers including Best Buy. We are ready to come up with the Bragi dash pro review.
