Nuheara's IQbuds function as bionic earbuds that cancel out background noise. The wireless bionic earbuds are connected to smartphones via Bluetooth technology and can be used for anything from making phone calls to listening to music to talking to voice-enabled apps.
The noise-canceling technology works to generate sounds the "neutralize background noise" such as chatter in a crowded room. However, the earbuds also filter through that noise and allow the user to hear background noise that may be important -- such as someone speaking right next to them. This dual function ensures that the user can listen to or talk to whoever they want without distractions, but that they don't miss out on important interactions.
The earbuds also come with an app that can personalize settings so that the user can prioritize when they need the noise-canceling technology.
