Basic Features

The Bragi headphones offer you some of the basic features you would expect from a pair of headphones. You can pair these earbuds to any device that has Bluetooth capabilities and you are not limited to your smartphone when you want to get these connected, you can use your fitness watch or computer if you want to. They feature a 6-hour battery life which is nice so they should last you the duration of your workouts without fear of them dying on you. Another great feature about these is the fact that they are sweat resistant so you do not have to worry about moisture sinking into them and damaging them when you are working out or on the run.

The headphones have a built-in microphone in them that reviewers say works fairly well, as long as you are using them in quieter environments as the microphone is located in the earbud itself.

Advanced Features

The Bragi wireless headphones come with a variety of more advanced features that customers love. First, they are a truly wireless pair of headphones. Many headphones that claim to be wireless still feature a cord that connects the two earbuds, but you will not find that with this pair, there really are no wires and it gives you the freedom that other headphones cannot.

Depending on what you are doing when you are listening, you can either choose between listening with passive noise isolation turned on or audio transparency. Passive noise isolations which essentially creates a seal around the headphones and helps you tune out the noise around you. Audio transparency will allow you to listen to your music while still being able to be aware of the world around you, which is ideal if you are doing a lot of running outdoors.
Sound Quality

Sound Quality

There is some back and forth about the sound quality of the Bragi wireless earbuds. There are a few customers who say that they have a good quality and have no complaints when it comes to the sound, however, the vast majority of reviewers have stated that they do not sound the best. The volume seems to be quite low, even on the loudest of settings, which can be frustrating when you are trying to listen to something to tune out the people around you. They have decent bass, according to some customers, so that is definitely a bonus.

The call quality of these headphones are not the greatest but they can work in a pinch. The microphone is located in the earbud, which is in your ear, so it can be a little difficult to pick up what you are saying, especially if you are in a busy and rather loud area. If you are looking for something to wear for taking phone calls, whether personal or business, you might want to consider a different option.

The audio transparency features work great with these headphones. They will allow you to listen to your music and still be aware of what is going on around you. This is ideal for anyone who does a lot of outdoor running and needs to be aware of their surroundings to keep themselves safe. In order to take advantage of the noise isolating features, you are going to want to make sure you find an ear tip that will fit snuggly in your ear and even then customers stated that this feature does not work the best. If you need noise canceling headphones there might be better options for you.

Connectivity

One of the best things about these headphones is that they are super easy to connect and they seem to stay connected. It can be extremely frustrating when you are trying to listen to your music to have your headphones repeatedly disconnect. You will not have to worry about that with the Bragi earbuds. You will get a reliable connection and once you establish the initial connection there is usually no issues getting them to reconnect when you use them the next time.

These are going to connect wirelessly through a Bluetooth connection to any device that is capable of this feature. You will have no problems getting these to connect to your smartphone, whether you are using an iPhone or Android device. You are not limited to phones, however, you can connect to your fitness watch or your computer, as long as they have the ability to connect through that Bluetooth.

Comfort

The vast majority of customers have commented that they are super comfortable and they have no pain or discomfort when they are wearing them, especially for long periods of time. The Bragi headphones are small and lightweight which adds to their appeal, as you will not have to worry about them adding weight inside of your ears which can cause them to fall out more easily. The snug fit also aides in the comfort level, as you will not have to worry about them sliding around in your ear and potentially losing them in the middle of a run or workout. The fact that they are truly wireless also helps with the comfort level, as you will not have to worry about getting caught up in the cords while you are on the go. They really are exceptionally comfortable.

Style

The Bragi wireless headphones have just a plain and simple design, as they are just two buds that sit inside of your ears. There are some mixed reviews, however, on how they are designed. The right earpiece has three small buttons on it that are used to control the headphones. The buttons are pretty accurate, but the problem comes with actually pressing them as it will press the earpiece into your ear putting added pressure on your inner ear. After a while, the buttons will begin to soften which makes it significantly easier to push them so you aren't pushing them too far into your ear.

There are no other color options for these earbuds other than black, but that does not seem to be a problem with customers as they sit in your ear and are barely noticeable.

Durability

The Bragi wireless headphones are made fairly well and they should not suffer from premature wear and tear. Finding a pair of durable headphones is important because you do not want to have to spend your hard earned money on these only to have to replace them after only a short time and you will not have to worry about that with this product. The fact that they are sweat resistant along with the solid build construction should keep these working as long as other similar headphones on the market. Some reviewers mentioned that they would have liked to have seen the buds made with something more sturdy than the plastic that currently houses them, but that would have increased the weight of them which would not be favorable. For the price point, they have a good solid build that will last you a decent amount of time before they will need to be replaced.
Ease of Use
Ease of Use

Ease of Use

The Bragi wireless headphones are relatively easy to use, most customers do not have a problem setting them up and using them. That being said, there are a few who do not quite understand the three button navigation to operate them.

When you are setting these up you will need to get them paired to your device. You will have to turn on your Bluetooth and then press and hold the power button for three seconds. You will select "Bragi HP" from the Bluetooth section of your device. That part is super easy, barely an inconvenience. The problem generally lies with turning them on in the future, as many people will accidentally set them to re-pair instead of just powering them on. The trick is to just press the button briefly instead of waiting for the LED to come on. Once you have that initial pairing there will be no problems getting them to automatically connect in the future.

The three buttons on the right earbud navigate the rest of the features. The power button is also used to answer and end phone calls or to pause and play your music. The arrow buttons are used to adjust your volume, as well as skip your songs if you want to.

Power Source

The Bragi headphones are powered with a rechargeable battery that uses a battery case, that is included when you buy it, to charge them up. You use a basic micro-USB cord to plug in the charging box to charge the earbuds. Some customers were disappointed that the charge box doesn't come with an integrated battery pack to charge on the go as some other higher end headphones offer, but that does not seem to be a deal breaker for them.

There are a lot of factors that come into play when determining the battery life of a pair of headphones. If you are listening to loud, bass-heavy, music then your battery will drain significantly faster than if you were listening to the news or a podcast at a moderate volume. That being said, the Bragi earbuds boast a battery life of 6 hours which is actually pretty good for this type of product. Customers do not seem to have many complaints about the battery of these headphones.
