In April of 2014, analyst Nick Hunn coined the term ‘Hearables’, shining a light on a previously overlooked category of wearables for the ear. With the growing adoption of voice recognition and hands-free technology, the ear is an increasingly logical access point for seamless control over not just one’s hearing, but also an assortment of connected smart devices. Over the past several years, a bevy of start-ups and electronics giants alike have attempted to harness the potential of in-ear wearable technology.
While most contenders have failed despite tremendous hype, Australian-based Nuheara has quietly emerged as the leader in the hearables sector, delivering transformative, smart hearing solutions that are accessible and affordable to everyone. Beginning with the fulfillment of early pre-orders of IQbuds in January of 2017, the company has consistently delivered on product development goals on-time, a rarity in both the crowdfunding and hearables space.
IQbuds BOOST, the 2nd generation of IQbuds released in March of 2018, offer personalized hearing enhancement using the same NAL-NL2 prescription formula used by audiologists around the world to calibrate high-end hearing aids. Today, thousands of happy customers around the world are hearing speech and sounds from their music and in their everyday lives they haven’t heard in years, thanks to IQbuds BOOST.
