Some detail comparison:
Battery Life with Music Streaming (Nuheara and Here One can last longer if you only use the Sound Augmenting Feature without music streaming)
Bragi: 6 hours per charge
Nuheara: 4 hours per charge with 3 more charges from the case
Here One: 1.5 hours per charge with 3 more charges from the case
Active Noise Cancellation
Here One and Nuheara offer similar active noise cancellation capability. They are not as good as Bose QC 20, but much better than just having passive noise isolation from Bragi. Both headphones do a good job of reducing street noise and airplane noise (recording from Youtube).
In addition to active noise cancellation, Here One and Nuheara also allow the user to control how much and what type of sounds from the outside world to reach the user. In theory, this is useful to reduce airplane engine noise, but then amplify human voices to talk to flight attendants or travelling companions. Unfortunately, even though this feature does work somewhat, neither headphones are that great at it. Here One is slight better at increasing the sound of a speaker over ambient noise, but in order to achieve this, it also increases ambient noise at similar frequencies as the human voice, so this can be distracting. Overall, using this feature on either headphones to increase a speaker's voice for a short conversation is nice, but anything longer than a minute and it can be distracting.
Here One and Nuheara has capacitive button on each headphone for control. Bragi has three physical buttons on the right side for control.
Bragi has pause/play, volume, bypass, and answer/reject call control using the buttons.
Here One has pause/play, bypass, siri/google now, and answer/reject call using either left or right earbuds.
Nuheara has pause/play and answer/reject call using left earbuds and audio augmentation mode control on the right earbuds. Nuheara also has siri/google now control using double tap on either earbuds.
I prefer the Nuheara for being able to cycle through different augmentation modes, so I can easily switch between Music (basically complete active noise cancellation) to Office or Plane (for quick conversations). Here One only allow the user to turn Smart Augmentation On or Off using the bypass control. This means I can only choose between reduced ambient sound or allowing all ambient sound in whereas Nuheara allows me to keep the ambient sound reduction on while still having a quick conversation but just amplifying human voices.
All three headphones have good bluetooth connection for indoor and outdoor although Bragi and Here One are slight better than Nuheara. Nuheara had little more drop outs than the other two, but it is still acceptable for everyday use.
Here One app is simpler to use than the Nuheara app although Here One app required more permissions. I am not sure why Here One needed location permission. Also, whenever I opened the Hear One app to check on the battery life of the earbuds while listening to music, it had to reconnect to the earbuds and the earbuds chimed to confirm the connection. This was a little annoying.
For the Nuheara app, there is couple of more setting you can modify for each Smart Augmentation Modes (e.g. SINC and EQ), but in the end, I just used the default settings. Bragi has no app which means connection to the phone is slight simpler. Also switching between phones and tablets are easier for Bragi because it just needs a bluetooth connection.
All three earbuds give you different size ear tips, but they have different approach.
Here One provides L, M, S silicone and foam tips for 6 total pairs.
Nuheara provides L, M, S, XS circular and oval silicone tips for 8 total pairs.
Bragi provides M, S silicone and one comply foam tips for 3 total pairs.
I found the Nuheara medium oval silicone tips to be most comfortable out of all three earbuds. Here One medium silicone tips are also fine but not as secure as the oval tips from Nuheara. Bragi medium silicone tips are ok, but does not offer much passive noise isolation. Bragi comply tips provided better passive noise isolation, but broke after 2 months of use.
Nuheara battery case has more LEDs to provide more information about the status of the charge of the case and the earbuds, but it is bigger than the Here One case although both cases are very compact. Bragi's case does not have a battery to recharge the earbuds. Also the Bragi case is two pieces that slide apart while Nuheara and Hear One cases snap open and shut.
All three headphones are about the same in this aspect as far as I can tell.
I installed the app on my iPhone and completed the easy setup of my new, wireless earbuds, including the testing of my hearing frequencies, and knew that Doppler Labs was on to something big. As I began to use the earbuds for music and in other day-to-day circumstances I was stunned by the tremendous improvement in being able to hear sounds that I have not heard for years, especially music. I have had my Here Ones for about six weeks now and use them in various ways nearly every day. I couldn't be more pleased. They have exceeded my expectations by miles... They are exactly what I needed, since my hearing-loss is not too bad, and I didn't want to undertake the daily struggle of wearing hearing aids. They are perfect for me, and would be the ideal solution for many other people with similar hearing issues...if they only knew about them. It would be nice to have a way to demonstrate them to friends, but many are reluctant to put something in their ears that have already been worn by me. So, I guess they will have to be guided only by my enthusiasm and excitement, and of course, by my insistent-urging for them to buy a set and learn for themselves how this brand-new technology can change their lives. Needless to say, I am a huge fan of Here One, so keep up the good work, and I will go about my day enjoying this unique and very useful tool that helps keep me connected to the world around me.
