Smart earbuds promise relief for children struggling in the classroom

MEET KAI

“After his first day at school with the earbuds, I asked Kai how it went and he said it was great, and it was also bad. He said it was great because he could finally hear the teacher, but bad because now that he could hear the teacher, he had to do what she said.” ~ Mel (Kai’s mom)

“I would turn the world off and put it on a bit of music, and I can’t hear anything at all. It’s just peaceful. I’ve always struggled, especially at school, with the noise just being too much, being a bit of pain because of how loud it is for me.”

What parents say

SON HAS APD, THESE ARE A TREMENDOUS HELP

My son has Auditory Processing disorder, these work great for him to use in class. He’s also been using them for his e-learning. He’s able to focus, and he says they cancel out the background noise. He also says they have really good sound quality.

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.

BOUGHT FOR 7 YEAR OLD WITH AUTISM

My son loves the ear buds and wears them every day at school in ‘restaurant’ Mode except when he goes to music lessons or asssembly where he prefers ‘world off’ (well who wouldn’t). The teacher said after three days she could already notice an improvement in his focus and they are really helping him to filter out background noise in class. He operates them himself and decides when he wants to wear them at school. Must also say I tried them out for a day at work before I let him loose on them so I could explain to him how they work and it was really hard to hand them over. I loved the noise cancelling on the train and in the office. Good piece of kit.

Positive research results

The Centre for Auditory Neuroscience at the University of Melbourne has provided a preliminary report into its findings on children and the use of IQbuds earbuds for autism. It noted that while the subject numbers were small, there was a significant improvement in auditory attention obtained. The ability to concentrate in background noise has been identified as a key factor influencing academic progress for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (Ashburner et al. 2008), and as such, was an encouraging result.

Government funding

Governments around the world are starting to provide funding for parents to help them purchase this assistive technology. In Australia, the IQbuds can be purchased for eligible children under the Hearing Services Program and the National Disability Insurance Scheme. IQbuds BOOST has been placed on NHS Scotland (incorporating Northern Ireland region) hearing contract and is available immediately.

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.
