These are the best earphones ever! I mix on these! The detail, the clarity and low end are 'pinch me am I dreaming?' great.

Tony Visconti Grammy award-winning producer (David Bowie, T-Rex, Iggy Pop)

I didn't think the sound could be improved from my first set of Flares R2 earphones but with the Flares Pro I have to assume there has been some deal with the devil for they sound even better. Cleaner, rounder, more transparent and the low end is more defined than before. Nothing I have used comes close.

They’re better than headphones costing three times the price. I can hear every detail, every nuance, everything the composer wanted me to hear. And then even more. Stunning in every way. It’s like rediscovering music

James Rhodes Classical Pianist


If you are looking for a pair of headphones that will bring your music to life, the Flare Pros are a fantastic choice. They deliver excellent bass and are tuned perfectly with super clear mids and highs that will tickle your ears with joy and with some recordings bring you right into the performance.

The new Flare Audio Pro is, without question, a great value product. The IEM by itself is a steal for that price, but you are also getting an awesome box, detachable cable and easily the best Bluetooth adapter (The W-DAC) that I’ve ever played with.


I wasn’t sceptical per se, but I hadn’t expected Flare Audio to surpass my expectations. From the moment I popped its top, Flares Pro blew my mind. It fits, sounds, and works, excellently. It gets great range, nails the neutral-but-laid-back signature, and is full of quality accessories that embarrass the competition. If you think your wireless earphones are good, just you wait.

Last week, I recommended Gail's hot cross buns. In a similar burst of enthusiasm, I can tell you these £49 headphones, by a tiny start-up, are the best I've EVER tried. I stood there screaming "IT'S LIKE I HAVE THE BAND IN MY SKULL!

Full disclosure. I was sent two FREE pairs of these new earphones from Flare Audio, but with no obligation to endorse or write about them. They’re the best earphones I’ve ever used. Lovely deep bass, but with pin sharp clarity and definition at the high end. First things I listened to were Hot Chip’s Thieves In The Night & John Legend’s Penthouse Floor, both utterly immersive. Then I played some filthy old rocksteady 45s and heard detail, especially on the bass drum, that was previously hidden in the murk. They also go LOUD.
I asked my daughters for a second opinion. They made off with both pairs. Their previous earphones had cost more than twice as much as these. Once again, I was sent the earphones for free, but under no obligation to endorse or write about them.

They’re easily the best in-ear earphones I’ve ever used. Lovely bottom end, beautiful depth and clarity to the overall sound. The effect doesn’t seem to be restricted to certain genres either. I’m even hearing details in murky old Jamaican rocksteady productions that had previously eluded me. It’s quite unbelievable.
