@BANE you are a great question and I guess it comes down to - what do you use on the current Bragi Dash Pro…
I dont use Alexa - but its a nice feature …
Auto-Fitness tracking - so when it auto detects I am on a Run and will provide Audio Coach for this - that is a nice feature and I like it a lot - granted my Phone app (endomondo) also has an audio coach so it is a bit redundent - but it was nice to have
Heart Rate sensor - like the above this was great to have - knowing what my BPM are during an exercise lets me know if I am in the right ‘level’ - great to have.
IPX rating - though I have never taken them swimming , i have used them in the rain / sweat and accidentally dropped them in a LAKE - thank god they still work.
4D Control - one of the handiest features every - being able to change tracks/answer phone when i am wearing thick gloves doing yard work or ridding a bike - was a godsend - great feature (no one - and I mean no one has anything close to this).
Touch Controls/Swipe - what can i say here - all of the newer ‘highly rated’ buds don’t do this - and I have no idea why not - pushing controls only hurt the ear - it is why I got rid of the cheaper Bragi Dash and got the PRO.
Transparency - being able to either turn on / off (again via swipe) outside sounds is a must - had to have that - avid jogger/dog walker - gotta have it.
Wind Shear - this was also a great feature and I use every day - outside - in the wind - having buds that can reduce the wind noise is also a must - i have other ear buds that do not do this and it is so noticeable.
Fit -what can I say - these fit great and i comfortably wear then 4+ hours a day…
I know when these finally die - I will be forced into something that will not come close to these - i will probably miss so much and have to compromise to something much less - it makes me sad
