Traditionally...ear protection had relied on plastics, foams, silicones and if you're desperate cotton wool.
These are used to absorb sound, but they still allow low frequency sound to penetrate, and there you are, in a world of booming bass and subsonic pressure, the results are uncomfortable and just plain unpleasant.
Well no more. Flare Audio have taken a radical new approach to noise reduction and thrown out the rule book. Metals have always been good conductors and so convention would suggest they are not a good choice for blocking sound. However, metal has to have a direct connection to conduct sound. So isolate the metal with a soft foam inside your ear and you end up with the most effective ear plug ever made.
The density of metal prevents soundwaves from penetrating, and where traditional ear plugs fail to block that subsonic dirge, ours does it beautifully. What’s more rather than living in a disorientating world of absolute silence you can actually hear with more clarity and definition due to your own body’s own sound conduction.
It just so happens that your body is very well suited to conduct these sounds at a variety of frequencies to your inner ear, the effect being the sound is reduced to a low level volume... it’s like turning the world down on the dial.
