The Dash by Bragi is the world’s first hearable, a smart wearable system that is worn in your ears. This pair of truly wireless smart earphones allows you to listen to music, track your performance and communicate. The Dash’s design and state-of-the-art technology allows for freedom of movement, great sound and maximum comfort - all while tracking movement, capturing biometric data and providing live acoustic feedback. The Dash entertains, enables and protects you.

This is a consistent and highly functional ergonomic design in a tiny and fully waterproof form. The Dash is more than a pair of headphones – a heart rate monitor, pedometer, internal music library, gesture interface, motion command recognition, bone induction microphone and noise cancellation truly make it stand out in its category. The visual and haptic interface of the device is complemented by an internal audio guide system. The production quality matches the formal aesthetics of this premium product.
