The wireless headphone company Bragi on Tuesday, May 16, announced a product lineup update to its Dash wireless in-ears called the Dash Pro, a version of which is being marketed as "the world's first custom-made wireless ear computer." The company outed two versions of this new headphone model, both improving upon the last model with a trove of features, alongside a crucial element that fixes a longtime woe with wireless headphones: a custom fit version, so they don't fall off. The custom-made Dash model is created using the same process audiologists employ for manufacturing expensive earplugs, hearing aids, and professional-grade in-ear monitors. The model is the result of Bragi's collaboration with Starkey Hearing Technologies, a Minnesota-based company that offers comprehensive hearing solutions. While other companies do offer custom-modeled in-ear monitors to customers, usually for live performances, Bragi says its custom-made Dash Pro is the first true wireless headphones offering a custom fit. Despite that, the Dash Pro will still stand as one of the most affordable headphones that feature custom molding, retailing for $500. The standard Dash Pro, meanwhile, will run you $330. Bragi claims the Dash Pro offers easy one-touch Bluetooth pairing and robust connectivity, among many other things. The buds pack internal computer parts, including a 32-bit chip and 4 GB of storage. The tiny computer parts inside boast artificial intelligence, which, coupled with 27 sensors, help the headphones with active noise-canceling, Bragi's noise pass-through Audio Transparency feature, and more. The Dash Pro is also equipped with beefy translation powers. Via iTranslate, the headphones can support translations of over 40 languages on the fly, relying on the iTranslate app on iOS. Hence, you'll need to buy iTranslate to take advantage of the feature, but Bragi is throwing in a free month-long subscription for everyone who'll purchase the headphones. The Dash Pro also sports biometric sensors for step tracking, pool length tracking, and other measurement features related to fitness. Users can even connect to the dedicated Bragi app to get updates on workout performance. The Dash Pro can also integrate with other health apps for additional features. Most impressive of all, however, is the navigation method used to control the Dash Pro. It employs a "4D" user interface to let the wearer control the headphones by moving the head or tapping the cheek. We'll have to wait until consumers get a hold of the headphones to see if this works as well as promised. But that's not all. Bragi is also launching Bragi 3.0, a new and improved operating system that incorporates the IBM's Watson AI, adds automated health and fitness tracking, brings new audio profiles, and more. The headphones can last up to five hours per charge, which is better than the last model's paltry three hours of battery life. You can purchase the Dash Pro via Bragi's website. The custom fit version will be sold through audiologists across the United States and Canada. With it also being a tiny wireless computer as Bragi claims, the Dash Pro stands to become one of the best wireless headphones available in the market. Thoughts about the Dash Pro?

The rising incidence rate of hearing disorders among the geriatric population has resulted in growing sales of efficient hearing devices. The hearing disabilities among war veterans as well as new-born infants is one of the biggest concerns in the global healthcare sector. The need for enhanced hearing aids is gaining importance as any untreated hearing loss among infants can lead to impairment in the speaking, the academic and the psychological abilities of the suffering children. Moreover, the global geriatric population is highly susceptible to developing hearing damage, which can adversely affect their personal relationships as well as their social life. As a result, the global market for hearing aids is expected to register a considerable rise, and the demand for hearing aids is likely to increase among several households during the forecast period (2016-2026). FMI’s report on the global hearing aids market consists of research that identifies the key factors that will shape up the dynamics of the market during the forecast period. Besides the obvious factor of rising incidences, the growth of the global hearing aids market is also influenced by factors such as, The increasing noise pollution throughout the world has had a significant impact on the hearing of adults. Noise emission in heavy duty industries as well as public carnivals is expected to damage the hearing capacity of adults, thereby resulting into increase in demand for hearing aids. Common practice of exposing the ear drum with loud music played through headphones or earphones is a very common factor causing hearing problems among the young demographic. Furthermore, people working in high-decibel environments such as airports or ordnance factories are expected to suffer from hearing loss due to overexposure. The demand for hearing aids is also higher among construction worker, owing to the loud drilling and dismantling work. The most recent factor stimulating the growth of enhanced hearing aids is the addition of Bluetooth, headphone, noise cancellation and other digital functions in the existing hearing devices. Such technological advancements have supplemented the demand for expensive hearing aids with additional features. On the other hand, the factors that restrain the overall growth of the global hearing aids market include, The low battery life of hearing aids is one of the biggest limitation to the demand of existing products. The consumer is left helpless and deaf, after the battery of the aid runs out. Lack of proper diagnosis of hearing disorders will result in lower adoption of hearing aids as consumer patients will continue to adjust to the hearing impairment. The evident buzzing and feedback sounds emitting from the hearing devices have proved to displease the users, especially the elderlies. As a result, it has distracted the thought processes of old people while having conversations with their family and friends. The global market for hearing aids is broadly segmented on the basis of the type of products, which include, Among the regional classification of the global hearing aids market, North America and Europe are expected to be amid the foremost lucrative regions in the global market. The rising number of hearing loss incidences in the US and Canada is expected to drive the market growth in North America, while the presence of several leading hearing device manufacturers is anticipated to fuel the hearing aid businesses across Europe. Meanwhile, the high noise pollution levels in Asia Pacific (APAC) countries such as India, China and Japan is also expected to impact the hearing aids market in the APAC region. The leading manufacturers of the global hearing aids market are focussed on market consolidation and expansion of their product portfolio. ReSound, Widex, Oticon, Siemens AG, Starkey Hearing Technologies Inc., and Phonak Hearing Systems, are among the leading manufacturers of the global market that are based in European countries, and account for a majority of the global production of hearing aids. Zounds Hearing, Inc. (U.S.), SeboTek Hearing Systems, LLC (U.S.), Sivantos Pte. Ltd. (Singapore), GN Store Nord A/S (Denmark), Cochlear Limited (Australia), Sonova (Switzerland), MED-EL (Austria), and William Demant Holding A/S (Denmark), among others, are also recognised as the key players in the global hearing aids market.
