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?

MINNEAPOLIS, June 13, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Starkey® Hearing Technologies is proud to be the Official Healthy Hearing Sponsor for both the 2017 Twin Cities Jazz Festival and Cities 97 Basilica Block Party. Starkey Hearing Technologies will be on-site for each music festival to offer hearing health information and earplugs to encourage safe listening practices. Visit our booth during the festivals and learn about your hearing health. “We are excited to be part of these two great events and have the chance to provide hearing health education and awareness to our community,” Starkey Hearing Technologies Chief Marketing Officer Chris McCormick said. “The Twin Cities Jazz Festival and Basilica Block Party present a special opportunity to share our vision, purpose and passion for better hearing with a multitude of people in our community. It is our hope as well, that by encouraging safe listening practices and raising awareness of hearing loss, we can help younger generations take proactive steps to keep their hearing healthy.” Since its founding in 1967, Starkey Hearing Technologies has been a powerful advocate in the local community for promoting healthy hearing practices and awareness of noise-induced hearing loss.

In 2015, the World Health Organization found an estimated 1.1 billion teenagers and young adults were at risk for hearing loss due to unsafe listening practices. Starkey Hearing Technologies has since worked hard to help educate the public on noise-induced hearing loss, hearing protection tips and safe listening practices through social media, online learning elements and local community events. "I am thrilled that Starkey Hearing will be a big part of this year’s Twin Cities Jazz Festival,” St. Paul Mayor Chris Coleman said. “As research now suggests, listening to music has a variety of health benefits, and Starkey has brought the gift of hearing to so many people around the world. It’s thanks to great corporate partners like Starkey that the Twin Cities Jazz Festival can offer world class jazz music free to the public." Originally created in 1999, the Twin Cities Jazz Festival is the Midwest’s premier jazz festival.
