About the Nuheara IQstream TV

Hear TV better

This low-latency Bluetooth streamer sends sound from your TV to Nuheara in-ear headphones, like the hearing-enhancing IQbuds2 MAX. This compact device connects to your TV's optical digital or analog output and sends the audio signal wirelessly to your IQbuds via Nuheara's flexible mobile app. Intuitive app-based controls let you set the level of the TV stream, toggle and adjust the amount of dialogue boost, and mix in the sounds of the outside world — or not. (The choice is yours.) Qualcomm aptX® Low Latency technology helps keep lip sync issues from spoiling the fun.

More details on the Nuheara IQstream TV

Product Research


Overview: The Nuheara IQstream TV is a TV sound streaming device that works with the IQbuds BOOST wireless in-ear headphones. It connects to your TV via optical digital or analog cables, then streams the TV audio to your IQbuds (through the IQbuds app) to give you clear, dynamic TV sound without delay. The IQstream TV comes with 1 meter optical digital and analog audio cables, and runs on USB power from your TV.

Low Latency: The support for aptX and aptX Low Latency assures you that the audio is high quality, and without lip sync issues. The IQstream TV makes sure the on-screen action and the accompanying audio are perfectly synchronized, and without annoying delay.

IQbud App: The IQbuds app is required for streaming TV audio from the IQstream TV to your IQbuds headphones. With the app, you can vary the levels of ambient noise and TV audio you want to hear. If you want to block out the noise, simply fade it out using the app. If you want to be able to hear conversations while you watch TV, you can dial in a more equal blend of "world" sound and TV sound. The app is compatible with Android devices running version 5.0 and up, and with Apple iPhone and iPad with iOS 9.3 or later.

Connections: The IQstream TV connects to your TV's digital or analog output. For digital connections, the device comes with a one-meter Toslink to mini-Toslink (3.5mm) optical digital cable. A Toslink-to-mini-Toslink adapter is also included, if needed. You can also connect the device using the supplied one-meter analog cable (3.5mm mini plugs on both ends). A 3.5mm-to-stereo RCA adapter is included, if necessary.

Note: The device is compatible with PCM digital audio signals, so you must make sure your TV's digital output is set to PCM. It will not support multi-channel Dolby Digital signals.

Sound System Connections: You can use the IQstream TV with a sound bar or amplified sound system. First connect an optical cable from the TV's digital audio output into the IQstream TV's input. Then run the sound bar's optical cable (if supplied) from the IQstream TV's output to the sound bar's audio input. Again, make sure the TV's digital output is set to "PCM."

Power: The IQstream TV device is powered by USB (5V / 250mA) via the one-meter supplied USB cable (Type A to Micro B). You can use the TV's USB port, if it has one. If not, an alternate USB source, such as a wall charger, can be used. Power Consumption is only 1 watt max, and <0.5W in standby.

Customer Q&A

1 question already asked

How many speakers can be connected to this at once? 2, 3 or 4
[ Big Tom   Apr 19, 2022 ]

The device really isn't intended to be connected to "speakers." It transmits audio from a television to Nuheara branded earbuds using bluetooth and a smartphone app. There are ports on the device to pass TV audio through to a soundbar, but it isn't intended to do anything more than allow user of Nuheara earbuds to have amplified TV audio. I do not know whether multiple persons using Nuheara earbuds could connect to a single IQstream device.
