What our customers are saying

THEY HAVE CHANGED THE AUDIBLE WORLD

The IQbuds2 MAX have changed the audible world for me, giving me access to clear sound and relief from being overwhelmed by sound…The ability to control the audible world has been amazing and helped with my Autism and the fact that I can be overwhelmed by too much noise. I recommend these highly for anyone with Autism.

AWESOME PRODUCT

This product has helped our child with special needs achieve what’s needed in a calm and regulated setting.

LIFE CHANGING

These were for my teenage daughter who has an auditory processing disorder. She was constantly wanting to avoid noisy places at high school and even not wanting to go to school. Once my daughter started using the IQ buds she has been able to cope with the noise demands in school and leaves school each day with more energy than she ever has. Many thanks to Nuheara for a solid product. My daughter loves the settings for different environments and that the ear buds can be adjusted to suit the wearer for different settings.

LIFE CHANGING

Having APD my life can be disrupted at a moment’s notice. Being over stimulated by sound has caused panic attacks/breakdowns/sever anxiety that is very difficult to manage….The IQbuds2 MAX buds have literally been the most life changing product for me dealing with my APD. Being able to adjust the world around me as it changes gives me a sense of newfound calm.

Frequently asked questions

My child hates earbuds so what happens if they do not like these?

Many people that have struggled with other headphones and earbuds find IQbuds2 MAX ergonomic design much easier to wear. It can take a week or two to get used to wearing them but if after 30 days (from delivery)they are not working,  they can be returned for a full refund.

What if they fall out at work or school?

Unlike many other wireless earbuds that can fall out easily as they don’t fill out the concha, Nuheara earbuds have that unique feeling of filling out your ear comfortably. Regardless,  we only recommend them to teenagers and young adults that are responsible enough to manage to look after them and return them to the charging case after use.

How do I know my child will be able to use them correctly?

Most teenagers and young adults find it easy to use them once they are set up properly. It is critical that time is taken to get a proper fit and complete the Ear ID test, but all of the presets other than that are intuitive and easy to use. It can take a week or so after that to play around with the different settings and get them perfect for how the user wants to use them.
