Bragi Dash Pro wireless earphones tailored for you
Thursday, May 10, 2018
Like a lot of runners, Jessie Grzeca enjoys listening to music while working out. But she doesn’t have to mess with ill-fitting earbuds and headphones.
She wears custom-made Bragi Dash Pro wireless earphones tailored by Starkey Hearing Technologies. She streams music through them via Bluetooth wireless technology.
“The sound quality is pretty good,” Grzeca says. “I have no connectivity issues.”
As a runner, Grzeca appreciates the tailored Dash Pro’s custom fit.
“The nice thing is these are custom molded to my ears,” she says. “I have never had any issue with them moving or falling out. They’re comfortable and they stay in place when you run. They’re wireless. You don’t have cords going into an armband or anything like that.”
To get that custom fit, the doctors of audiology at The Hearing Center take precise impressions of the ears, which takes only a few minutes. The impressions then are sent to Starkey Hearing Technologies to create 3D-printed shells for the tailored Dash Pro.
Grzeca also takes advantage of the tailored Dash Pro’s connectivity to evaluate her workouts.
“I have them paired to a Nike app on my phone and my watch. It’ll give me my pace and my time and my distance,” she says.
About the Bragi Dash Pro
Imagine listening to music while swimming. Imagine talking on the phone while running. Imagine chatting in real time with someone who speaks a different language.
No need to imagine. Bragi Dash Pro wireless earphones tailored by Starkey Hearing Technologies make all that possible.
Any Bluetooth-enabled device – Apple or Android phone, tablet or computer – can be linked to the tailored Dash Pro to stream audio and provide hands-free wireless communication. The tailored Dash Pro also has four GB of storage, enough for up to 1,000 songs.
The tailored Dash Pro provides clear stereo sound, even while swimming. It has Knowles balanced armature speakers with a back vent for elevated bass and EQ optimization for the custom shell and vented speakers.
The tailored Dash Pro can be a fitness tracker, instantly recognizing whether you’re walking, running, cycling or swimming. Its sensors monitor heart rate, calories burned, duration of workout, step count, distance, cadence, speed, breaths and lengths, the latter important to swimmers.
The tailored Dash Pro also can be customized by downloading the Bragi app from the Apple or Google Play stores. That allows users to set up touch controls for music, connect it to an Alexa virtual assistant, and to take or reject phone call by nodding or shaking the head.
