Nuheara (NUH) has announced its IQbuds² MAX hearing products have arrived at global warehouses ready for distribution.

The IQbuds² MAX are a third-generation version of the original IQbuds, which were released in 2016. It helps users hear everything around them through the small earbuds, while they personalise and control the devices through a mobile app.

Nuheara’s products are now sold direct-to-consumer (DTC) and in major electronics retailers, hearing clinics, pharmacies and optical chains around the world.

This marks an exciting time for the company as it experienced supply chain interruptions and its factory in Malaysia closing due to COVID-19 global shutdowns.

In mid-April this year, Nuheara was able to restart production at the Malaysia facility after the nation went into lockdown in March. Since then, the company has reportedly been working tirelessly to ensure customers get their orders.

Customers who have pre-ordered IQbuds² MAX have started to receive their tracking numbers for final delivery.

Nuheara CEO Justin Miller claims there have been thousands of orders for the next-generation hearing devices.

“In less than six months, we have pre-sold almost 5000 units of IQbuds² MAX,” Justin said.

“The logistics have been very challenging and we are incredibly appreciative of the understanding, patience and support of our global customers,” he added.

Like many other distributors, Nuheara is still not out of the woods yet, as managing global logistics during COVID-19 is a “massive task”. But the company says it is committed to fulfilling backorders as quickly as it can.

Shares remain flat in early morning trade and are priced at 1.4 cents each at 10:10 am AEST.
