Bragi’s The Dash Pro headphones are a fantastic option for active music lovers. You can connect them to your phone or media player through a Bluetooth connection. And you can even store up to 1,000 songs right on the earbuds.

They are so full of great features that customers can take advantage of. There is a built-in fitness tracker that will work with some of the most popular fitness apps. You can also link it to your Google Fit or track your fitness right from the Bragi app. The headphones even sync with Alexa, which provides voice command access to most features.

But there are some downfalls, unfortunately. Some customers feel they aren’t very durable. Other customers complained of connection issues such as frequent lost connections. Fans of the product, on the other hand, insist that these problems are rare. They even go so far as to insist that the product’s price tag is more than worth it.

Features

The Bragi The Dash Pro headphones are packed with excellent features that customers will be able to take advantage of. First, and foremost, they are truly wireless. This means that there are no cords attached to them, at all. Not even connecting the two buds together as you might find on most wireless headphones.

The Dash Pro's will, of course, allow you to stream music from your smartphone, but you can also upload up to 1,000 songs, so you don't have to hassle with connecting it to a media player. As long as you have your earbuds with you, you don't need anything else to take your music along with you.

You can measure your running, cycling, or even your swimming activities. There is no need to wear an additional smartwatch or tracker if you don't want to, as this has it all built right in. You'll be able to link it right up to your favorite fitness apps, such as Google Fit so that you can view your progress and activity levels.

As mentioned above, there is a microphone located in the buds, allowing you to make hands-free calls with ease. You can also use the mic to use your smart assistant. They have Alexa built right into the buds, but you can also use your Google Assistant or Siri if you prefer. You'll have access to your phone, music, and information, all without having to take your device out of your pocket.

The earbuds do have shortcut buttons on the buds themselves, so you can control your calls and your music while you're out and about. The problem with this, however, is that some customers have stated that they are very touchy. Sometimes, if they happen to slip out of your ear, you'll activate one of the buttons while you're putting the bud back in your ear. This can get irritating while you're in the middle of a workout as it will mess with the music you are listening to and cause you to slow down your momentum.

A great feature that users can take advantage of is that these headphones will work with the iTranslate app on your smartphone. This will help out if you are visiting other countries and need help with their language. You will have the ability to translate over 100 languages using this app in conjunction with the Bragi app. Some customers said that the feature isn't the most intuitive to use and is a bit slow, but it's still a helpful tool to have available when you need it.

Sound Quality

They way your headphones sound is kind of important, after all, you get them so you can listen to things. Customers seem to be satisfied with the way these buds sound. They aren't the best on the market and if you fancy yourself an audiophile, you might not be able to appreciate them. However, for the average customer, they are just fine, especially considering that they are wireless.

You will also have the ability to toggle Audio Transparency so you can choose whether or not you want to be aware of what is going on around you. If you are running in the city or on a busy street, you might want to be able to listen to the world around you so you can be aware of dangers ahead. These will allow you to listen to your music while still being able to listen to the ambient noises around you. Or, you can choose to turn that feature off so you can focus solely on your music and tune out everything else.

Connectivity

It is a straightforward process to get the headphones to connect to your device. The problem is keeping them connected. There will occasionally be some audio delays, or the connection would drop out altogether. Of course, this doesn't happen with everyone, but it is common enough that it is worth mentioning.

They don't seem to have a vast range so you will want to make sure that your phone is nearby and you don't stray too far away from it.
