    After going through the different earbuds these are two I’m considering. Anybody got the Bragi earbuds? I’ve heard the reviews are a lot better after the software updates. Problem is on amazon they are £250 which is a lot more than the airpods. Just thinking sound wise which would be a better option.

    They have alot more features. Personally its down to the fit in ear. If you want them now you only have one choice.

    Have you checked out the Bragi Headphones? Less features than the Dash but much cheaper.

    Yeah have looked into this. Price certainly makes it appealing. Not sure when it's out here though.

    I have the Dash. The sound quality is decent and for me wears comfortably. They released a recent update that now allows Apple Watch connectivity, head gestures and myTap. What will you use them primarily for?

    Mainly for gym and listening to going to work for example. I will use my Apple Watch for changing music so the fact it works well with that now seems like a bonus.

    It sure if you saw the Main page article from earlier today. Sounds like the Airpods may launch soon, with in a few weeks.

    I have the Dash and they are fantastic. I am also getting The Headphone for longer journeys. I don't like the bit that dangles out of your ears on the AirPods.

    The Bragi Headphone would be a great option, but unfortunately the fact that they don't come with a charging case is a deal breaker for me. :/

    They claim 6 hours of battery life, which is pretty good. Any idea if that also applies to voice calls? Apple claims 5 hours of listening and 2 hours of calling. If Bragi somehow managed to do 6 hours of any kind of use I would probably strongly consider ordering...

    Although I wouldn't mind testing the headphone, the dash has way too little battery life. It's features are also quite unwanted (fitness tracking), would have been better use of space for more battery life instead of sensors.

    This doesn't sound good:

    "We appreciate people's patience and are currently working around the clock to ensure “The Headphone” is shipped as soon as possible. You will be receiving a mail from our communications team soon which will have full details of the current situation within the next 24 hours."

    The reviews I've seen still state connection stability issues. Maybe they only work for short people (Less distance between your pocket and head.)

    I do like their ongoing support and trying out additional gestures for controlling things, I'm hoping Apple adds some volume gestures.

    With the recent update the Dash (and I assume Headphone?) should be able to connect to your Apple Watch.
    As long as you don't need heart rate monitoring/fitness tracking, internal storage or water resistance the Headphone will suffice.

    ------
    I wonder if you could get more than 6 hours on the Headphone? I used by Dash yesterday on a 1.5 hour long trail run and continued to use it while walking the dog and washing 2 cars..I did not get the charge me voice prompt until hour 4. Had to leave the house before I was fully able to drain the battery. I was only using one earbud so not sure if that matters.

    It's official. Only some of the Bragi Headphones pre-orders will be delivered before the holiday. Sigh.

    So after some quick back and forth emails with Bragi support, when I pushed to find out if mine would be delivered or not this week, I suddenly get radio silence. Not cool.

    I have both. I've had the Dash since it came out and got the AirPods today. Let me tell you their is no comparison, AirPods win hands down. Sound, quality on phone calls, comfort is much better on the AirPods.

    Problem I have is that I know that the AirPods will not stay in my ears. Also, I change tracks too often to have to deal with Siri every time. Pretty bummed the Headphone is delayed, but hoping for the best. I need some option since AirPods won't work for me.

    I returned a pair of Braghi Dash earbuds and set up was the most painful setup experience I've had in years and don't even think about putting your phone in your left hand.

    AirPods easily. I was expecting AirPods to be a cheap version of Braghi Dash. Instead it's the superior implementation.

    Respectfully, people need to stop comparing the Dash to the Headphone. Reviews have already indicated that the Headphone is a better product.

    I mean the Braghi Dash earbuds....that cost me $300 bucks took 4-5 hours to sync with my phone. Then I could barely get it to work without cutting out and the sound was worse than Apple's old earpods. It was such a bad experience I immediately took them back the next day. There was just no redeeming them.
