The Applications that Make IQbuds² MAX a Great Gadget for Dad

Fact: facing the dawn of a long day at an amusement park is less daunting with IQbuds

  • Control the noise of after-school sports games, music lessons, and other activities.
  • Enjoy complete audio isolation with the gold standard in active noise cancellation technology.
  • Blend audio (i.e. ‘listen to the game’) while attending kids’ events while staying engaged with what’s happening around you.
  • Keep tabs on a sleeping baby’s monitor without having to stay within earshot of the crib or constantly checking your phone.
  • Enhance speech for clearly conversation in crowded environments.
  • Activate Siri or Google Voice, or toggle on or off noise cancellation with the tap of an earbud
  • Use them with IQstream TV to stream high fidelity sound directly to your ears for immersive TV audio experience like no other.

Beyond those specific use cases, IQbuds are simply a top-notch pair of truly wireless earbuds. Dad will love them for listening to music at the gym, catching up on a podcast during his commute, and just for making phone calls.

IQbuds² MAX were even named by TIME as one of 2020’s best inventions, further validating the value of the technology. As stated by TIME in their review, “Not only do they make it easier to hear your friends on the subway or at a noisy café, they can also help stem the debilitating effects of hearing loss—a condition that affects more than 466 million people worldwide.”

Bring Forgotten Sounds Back to Life

More mature Dads enjoy the wisdom that comes with age. However, with age comes actual aging too. For a large segment of the population, aging involves hearing loss, often untreated and not properly diagnosed by those in the mild stages. According to the Better Hearing Institute, “1 in 6 individuals ages 41-59 have some kind of hearing loss.”

Not all Dads will be aware of hearing health and conscious of their hearing loss, and a hearable such as IQbuds² MAX is a great way for Dad to get his head around his ears and bring hearing enhancement into his everyday life. The combination of hearing health benefits, superb high-fidelity sound, and active noise cancellation capabilities make these earbuds one of 2021’s best tech gifts for Dad on Father’s Day.

Reasons why IQbuds² MAX are one of the Best Tech Gifts for Dad

True Personalization

Nuheara’s EarID™ technology uses a convenient mobile app to assess a wearer’s hearing and automatically calibrate the buds to their personal hearing profile. EarID uses the clinically-validated NAL-NL2 hearing test—a neural network-driven system that optimizes the hearing augmentation engine to the user’s personal preferences. This provides research-grade hearing customization without the need to visit audiology specialists.


Situational Sound

Nuheara’s proprietary Speech in Noise Control (SINC) adds unique sound controls for each situation. As a result, wearers can quickly toggle their earbuds to the most comfortable noise settings for their location—muting background noise and enhancing focus on their direct conversations in a noisy environment.

Hybrid Active Noise Cancellation

With the most advanced form of ANC, IQbuds² MAX uses three microphones to analyze and process sounds both inside and outside the ear. Advanced filtering circuitry creates cancellation waves in the ear to reduce distracting sounds and in-ear occlusion. With the tap of a finger, users can block external noises. Coupled with Nuheara’s SINC, this feature delivers a premium dual noise-isolation experience for unparalleled noise mitigation and control.

Advanced Digital Signal Processing

IQbuds² MAX triple-core DSP system delivers optimal hearing fidelity and reduces occlusion to deliver the most natural enhanced sound ever in a hearing bud. Additionally the earbuds boast a 450MIPS signal processing engine in each ear, offering an optimal natural sound experience.

Sonic Accuracy

A large 9.2mm dynamic driver with vented acoustical design provides pitch-perfect sound fidelity. This improves sound quality, especially bass, which can be an issue with smaller earbuds.

App Syncing with iPhone and Android

Nuheara’s user-friendly apps allow full control of the listening environment, including noise reduction and hearing processing. Therefore users can adjust hearing preferences from the app and receive future developments and upgrades for the IQbuds2 MAX.

Intelligent controls

Nuheara’s smart sensors provide intuitive tap-touch and gesture control for seamless user experience.

Water and sweat-resistant

All of Nuheara’s products are designed to maximize compatibility for an active lifestyle.

Give Dad the Ultimate TV Experience This Fathers’ Day

IQbuds² MAX combined with IQstream TV delivers high fidelity TV streaming. Hear every detail, the quiet conversations, the crescendo of battle and the magic of the soundtrack while blending the TV volume with the people around you if you choose. IQstream TV streams crystal clear stereo sound from the TV to your IQbuds² MAX earbuds so you can enjoy TV audio at the volume you want while others can listen at the volume they prefer.
