Nuheara Says Intelligent Software Will Improve the Listening Experience on New IQbuds Boost Headphones
Jan 8, 2018, 11:13 AM by Eric M. Zeman
Nuheara debuted a new set of fully wireless earbuds at CES this week called the IQbuds Boost. The earbuds have refreshed casings when compared to last year's IQbuds and offer an additional 1 hour of battery life per charge. The more important improvement, however, comes in the form of software that can customize the experience for each person. Together with the mobile app, EarID technology measures your hearing thresholds to create your own personal sound profile. It does this via an artificial intelligence powered "Self Fit Formula" and calibrates the IQbuds to accurately reflect the differences in ear canal shape, depth, and more. Nuheara has added the National Acoustic Laboratory's NL2 self-fitting formula to its software in order to make this happen. Normally this type of customization requires a trip to an audiologist. Like the original IQbuds, the IQbuds Boost include active noise cancellation and can be used not only for music and calls, but to actively turn down background noise when in loud spaces. For example, they can be worn in loud restaurants so the wearer can more easily converse with those sitting next to them. The Nuheara IQbuds Boost with EarID will ship later this spring. Pricing is set at $200.
