A steady flow of positive reviews still coming out, this one in full may be behind a paywall but it will certainly help nuheara sales.
ASX-listed wireless audio company Nuheara got its IQbuds off the ground thanks to a successful $1m crowd-funding campaign and they’re now hitting the streets. The point of difference with these “super intelligent earbuds’’ is they use in-built microphones and algorithms to help control your audio environment. What does that mean? Well, if you’re at home and want to be able to join in the discussion around the latest productivity commission inquiry, one tap on the right earbud can toggle on home mode, pausing your music and allowing you to chat clearly about your suggested reforms.
Once the conversation’s over, another tap on the right earbud will swap the mode back to music, which cancels out noise really well and plays your music in great quality. Annoyingly, the Bluetooth range on the IQbuds is quite short. Unlike, say, Apple’s AirPods, I had to at times swap my phone into another jeans pocket in order to have consistent sound. The Bluetooth receiver is in the left IQbud, so if my phone is in my front right pocket (where it normally lives) the sound tends to cut in and out. That’s pretty annoying. The case, while offering about 10 hours extra battery life, is a bit clunky and definitely stands out of my pocket. Overall, though, I love the IQbuds and they’ve become my new go-to, especially around the office.
Puzzling that Nuheara are making all the noise and , one assumes , sales , while Doppler Labs are very quiet.
Perhaps the silence reflects some product issues, who knows.
After another night of muteness at a noisy little gathering , I have given up waiting for a price reduction and ordered from Nuheara
Deliveries are improving and mine should arrive in a few weeks.
Doppler labs have not changed on shipping are still quoting 4 >6 weeks
