Review

This device is actually not science fiction. Most of the features are already reality in several earphones and headphones. The features are taken from the Bragi Dash, Samsung Gear Icon X and Sony MDR-1000x and combined to create a device that would be worth waiting for. The app feature is new but not challenging at all. The Dash and Gear Icon X have both 4GB of storage that you can use like an USB stick. It would not be challenging to download software and content from a dedicated app store. The price would probably be high, but so is the price of Bragi, Samsung and the projected price tags of several of the crowdfunded products.
