I can honestly say that I have completely lost count of how many times my friends have told me that they are so tired of the headphone cord when they are out exercising or just playing music on their smartphone. It’s an annoyance that many have tried to solve using cord holders and all kinds of weird contraptions. I was happily surprised to find that Bragi LLC is currently developing a set of smart headphones that leaps innovation evolution altogether.
Believe me when I say that we have seen our share of innovation here at Bit Rebels, but never before have we seen such a generous and inspiring leap as the Dash smart headphones represent. I am sure many people have thought about having all of their favorite gadgets compiled into one sleek device that is placed in the ear without having to fiddle around with their smartphone or having those annoying cords hanging dangling while they go about life’s many chores. That may be it, but no one has been able to pull it off until now.
These smart headphones have the capacity of containing up to 1,000 songs (4GB) with features like performance tracking, body sensor and of course a secure fit to keep them from popping out of your ears when you are moving around. But that is far from everything that is fitted into them. The developers have literally managed to jam pack these earphones with everything that you used to wear on your arm or carry in your pocket.
They have features ranging from water resistant to performance tracking, and all features are nothing less than mind blowing. For example, the performance tracking is so advanced that these smart headphones will track your heart rate, oxygen saturation, energy spent, speed, time, distance and cadence. The headphones even feature impressive noise isolation, something that is quite important if you want to get in the zone when working out. The wearer can choose to channel ambient sound into the headphone with the transparent audio feature. A swipe on the capacitive touch surface on the smart headphones will enable or disable ambient sound to pass through.
Needless to say, the Dash smart headphones are on their way of becoming one of the most funded campaigns on Kickstarter ever. With over 32 days to go this piece of technology has already accumulated over $2,425,000 pledged by over 11,500 people. That is something that is almost unheard of on the Kickstarter platform, or on any crowdfunding platform for that matter. If you want to be a part of history and want to help make this technology one of the most impressive technologies innovated to date, don’t hesitate to jump over to their quite extensive Kickstarter page and pledge. This is surely going to be one of the most impressive startups we have seen so far.
