We are now pursuing a hydrid go-to-market approach with sales through our online store and sales through the channel. ”said Justin Miller, CEO of Nuheara. “.We are pleased to see consumers, retailers and distributors across the globe all responding favorably to IQbuds™ as an emerging ‘hearables’ product”
