The audio bar just got SERIOUSLY raised…
British sound innovators Flare Audio continue to push sound-quality barriers with the Flares® JET earphone series.
Now available in three models, Flares JET 1 (RRP £29.99), JET 2 (RRP £39.99) and now JET 3 (RRP £49.99), the stylish trio claim to deliver the superior sound quality only offered by some premium big budget alternatives. Sound quality increases as the model number goes up, due to different metals used.
By applying one of its main patent-pending audio technologies (JET Technology), Flare has created an earphone that enables music lovers to enjoy exceptional clarity and previously un-heard detail in their favourite tracks, without breaking the bank.
Davies Roberts, founder of Flare Audio explains: “Imagine having X-ray hearing, the ability to hear ‘inside’ the music. All our products are built with the same principal in mind; we aim to make music clearer and to deliver sound to the listener with the smallest of interventions. By doing so, we remove all audible distortion, revealing detail and subtle nuances never heard before, unveiling the true feeling of a song, like a breath taken before a vocal line or fingers moving against a guitar string. As our entry market offering, Flares JET brings this technology to a much wider audience of music lovers than ever before.”
Having made its name as a pro audio manufacturer, providing speakers for concerts, festivals and a range of venues, Flare has already achieved quite an industry following, with big name producers, musicians and DJs acclaiming their ground-breaking tech.
Flares JET 1 is made from a high tensile polymer with a black satin finish.
Flares JET 2 is precision turned from aluminium using only the latest, state of the art, CNC machinery. Made from a stronger and sturdier material, Flares JET 2 is a higher-grade version, offering superior sound delivery.
Flares JET 3 uses Grade 5 titanium and is the highest-grade model and best sound quality of the range.
The ergonomic design of Flares JET means that fitting is quick and easy. All models come with three sizes of silicone tips that fit the majority of ear types and provide superb sound isolation along with mic and control capabilities and a handy drawstring pouch.
Inside each Flares JET, high power 10mm drivers create what Flare Audio describes as “the most enveloping and immersive sound.” Bass feels unlimited with great depth and power, yet without taking over or muffling other sounds. Mid-frequencies are strong and clear, yet in total balance with every other frequency, while higher frequencies whisper around the listener without sounding harsh or overwhelming.
Flare’s technology has been praised by many top musicians and producers, including Led Zeppelin’s Jimmy Page, Grammy award-winning producer Tony Visconti, (David Bowie, T-Rex, Iggy Pop); Julian Lennon; Nick O’Malley, bass player with the Arctic Monkeys; Fran Healy of Travis and BNQT, and Danton Supple, producer (Coldplay, Morrissey, Starsailor).

About Jet Technology
Precise pressure balancing across all frequencies; jet technology allows us to match the air pressure in front of the driver, to the rear of the driver. As a result, we are able to release a build-up of pressure. Flares® JET uses this technology to maximise the front output of the earphone. This reduces distortion levels and boosts overall volume enabling the driver to perform as efficiently as possible.
