CES 2015: Bragi Dash Headphones – Truly wireless headphones.

Bragi is a little known company that launched a Kickstarter campaign nearly 12 months ago for a unique and possibly the ultimate concept for earphones. These little earpieces are completely wireless, connecting wirelessly to both themselves and your phone, they have 4GB of onboard storage, 3.5-hours battery life and a self-contained media player.

If that concept wasn't crazy enough itself Bragi hoped to also include sensors like an accelerometer, heart rate monitor and an oxygen saturation sensor.

The Kickstarter campaign was a massive success, with The Dash smashing its modest (and perhaps naive) original goal of $260,000. It went on to raise a total in excess of $3 million, making it the highest funded campaign in Europe.

This obviously sounds very much like guaranteed vapourware but Bragi have miraculously delivered a prototype to CES 2015. The prototype doesn't have any final software but the overall look and feel of the device is exactly that of the renders provided on Kickstarter.

Initial reviews seem positive though not a lot of word on how good the sound quality is, but I guess this is hard in the middle of CES. Hviid, the CEO, has worked with companies like Harman Kardon and AKG before so things are looking promising in terms of the sounds.

Pricing should be $300 in the States confusingly they charge $ for European orders even though they are based in Germany and you will incur VAT so UK orders will be $355.81 which is rather expensive, but these are a very unique product. Orders are expected to ship from April.
