IQBuds Cut The Noise, Accentuate Voices Without a Prescription | Medgadget

A lot of people have hearing issues that make it difficult for them to hear others while surrounded by a noisy environment, yet prescription hearing aids may be too expensive and an overkill solution. IQBuds from Nuheara, a company with offices in San Francisco, CA and Perth, Australia, is a new solution unveiled at CES in Las Vegas this week, that accentuate sounds you want to hear while drowning out the surrounding noise. Moreover, they’re actually a set of wireless headphones, so you can listen to your favorite music through them as well.

The IQBuds are not technically a medical device, so they won’t replace hearing aids. They’re also not tuned by professional audiologists, but are instead programmed via an accompanying app. The company promises approximately 16 hours of streaming music or 32 hours of noise cancellation and voice enhancement.
