​Introducing​ ​the​ ​Dash​ ​Pro​ ​Hearing​ ​Device

Hearable technology has made leaps and bounds in the past few years, and patients are the beneficiaries of these advances. At Chicago Hearing Services, we’re proud to offer a new hearing device that offers many of these new technologies into one convenient and easy to use pair of headphones. The device is called the Dash Pro, made by Bragi and Starkey Hearing Technologies. 

  A Custom Fit 

A hearing device wouldn’t be very good if it didn’t fit each patient well and provide all day comfort. In addition, customization allows for better sound quality when listening to music. 
General ergonomic designs will only go so far, but everyone’s ears are different and a custom fit is the only want to ensure optimal comfort.  
  
We start the process by taking precise measurements and impressions of the patient’s ears. These impressions are sent to the manufacturer, where they’re scanned electronically to create 3D printed shells of the patient’s ears. These shells are used to create wireless earphones that offer a unique and customized fit.

Wireless and Seamless Connectivity

 The Dash Pro connects to any bluetooth device for convenient, hands-free communication. The user can seamlessly switch between the media they are streaming and phone calls on their mobile device with a single tap.  
 

A Multitude of Features 

The Dash Pro has many additional features that patients may find helpful, such as: 
  • Automatic fitness tracking -using nine built-in fitness sensors, the earpieces can track running, swimming, cycling or walking, and can automatically identify the activity. Fitness tracking doesn’t require having a smartphone along with you during the activity.
  • 4 GB of storage – a smartphone also isn’t required to listen to music. The headphones have enough memory for the user to store up to 1,000 songs and use them as a stand-alone music player. This allows the wearer to be completely hands free!
  • Audiophile-quality sound – extra care was taken to make the Dash Pro into a fully functional pair of headphones, using Knowles Balanced Armature Speakers with a back vent for elevated bass and EQ optimization.
  • Multi-lingual use – integration with iTranslate app allows the user to communicate in over 40 languages with translation directly to their headphones.
  • Waterproof up to 1 meter – a device that goes everywhere with you on a daily basis should be sturdy. The Dash Pro is fully waterproof up to 1 meter.
  • Long battery life – the Dash Pro allows up to five hours of playtime and an additional 25 hours of use via recharging using the portable charging case.
 Are you an active person? Are you looking for something that is completely wireless when running or biking? If so, you may benefit from the Dash Pro! Contact us today to set up a consultation!
