HD 158614 is a spectroscopic binary star system approximately 60 light-years away in the constellation of Ophiuchus.

This system is in the Zeta Herculis moving group, which is of low metallicity stars, 5 billion years old. Besides ζ Herculis, the group includes δ Trianguli, ζ Reticuli, 1 Hydrae, Gl 456, φ2 Pavonis, and GJ 9079.[3]

This binary was included in a search for brown dwarfs that turned up no large companions.
