Hold on to your ears, here come the Dash smart ear-buds
Everything's becoming smart lately. The Dash ear-buds are the smart ear-buds. Already millions of dollars ahead of their original Kickstarter goal of $260k, the Dash earphones combine fitness tracking, heart-rate monitoring, Bluetooth connectivity, an integrated music player with 4GB of storage (yes, they even play music!), and smart features, such as feeding contextual information in your ears. Not only will the buds give "the voices inside my head" a completely legitimate meaning, but perhaps they could provide a more socially acceptable version of a wearable.

The ear-buds won't require you to hold a smartphone, take a peek at your smart-watch, or annoy the technology suspicious with Google Glass. Dash is pretty much a wearable handsfree, although it somehow manages to work without connecting to a phone - not that you cannot put an app on it and connect if you wish so. And being a hi-tech pair of earbuds, it has built-in noise cancellation, too.

While we're not sure how these will fair as a "life companion", the Dash earphones look a great music and sport accessory, at least on their Kickstarter page. And the concept of reducing smart technology into something as discrete as a pair of buds is no less intriguing. In anything moves as planned, the product should start wide-scale manufacture this November.

As someone who has experimented with many wireless headphones, I am confident that these will have terrible battery life. My suggestion is to go with the LG ones that hang around your neck. They look weird and you will definitely have people look at you funny, but they are far superior than any other wireless headphones ive tried. They have great battery life and they have a really good blue tooth connection. Other pairs I tried would lose signal if my phone was in the wrong pocket or if I had something large in my hands. With the LGs, I can go 30 feet or more away and still have signal. Anyone thinking about wireless headphones, go with the LG kind that go around your neck, you wont be disappointed. The ones in this article seem cool, but with all those features, they are sure to have bad battery life.

I wasn't trying to just promote a company, but yeah I think they are called Tone or whatever. I am sensitive to promoting any product because I don't want to be like other people on this site who become fan boys to one company and then hate on all the rest.

In my opinion, if the battery life isn't good, then you might as well use wired ones. But yeah, the LG ones have great battery life.
