Flare has been my go to for a long time now, been using the old isolate aluminium ones (the thick ones) and they where fantastic for when I'm riding my motorbike. Just about hear voices through them and my helmet but they block 90% of the wind noise and some of the other horrible sounds.
Opted for the pro version of this new model and there just as good, definitely a massive improvement in fit as well as being smaller and less prone to being nocked out of place when putting my helmet on.
Voices might be a little clearer now but not sure
Isolate comes in three models. Clear, Aluminium and Pro
Pro | Our premium Pro model not only has the highest grade turned titanium finish but also has the most even frequency attenuation.
Aluminium | The Aluminium variant has a naturally anodised finish and is precision turned from solid aluminium.
Clear | The Clear version is made from injection moulded ABS and features a completely transparent look.
A Reliable Universal Fit
The difference between the highest and lowest test value for each frequency band is called Standard Deviation (row three).
The lower this number is, the closer each test subjects results were. For example; at 1000 Hz the difference between the highest and lowest test result was 3.0 dB.
A low difference like 3.0 means subjects were achieving a similar universal and accurate fit meaning a more reliable and safer experience.
Other leading earplug manufacturers have a higher standard deviation shown here.
The attenuation difference between the SNR High/Medium/Low ratings is also just 3 dB whereas the market leading standard foam earplugs is as much as 10 dB.
By attenuating frequencies more evenly, the user is safely protected from harmful levels of bass, mid and treble whilst enjoying an accurate sound experience.
Just at a much lower volume.
