"For years our team have been re-thinking the design of audio products to reduce the detrimental distortion that traditional approaches can’t address. I experienced a Eureka moment and uncovered a way to target distortion at source; in the human ear itself."
A small wearable device
Moulded from soft flexible silicone, Calmer sits barely visible in the ear and uses revolutionary, non-electric technology to reduce mid and high frequency distortion without having a detrimental effect on our hearing.
Place in your ear and give your sound the upgrade of a lifetime. Calmer simply reduces natural distortion (unwanted noise) from our ears that would otherwise be compromising the sound.
Calmer is a one size fits all design and does not affect the characteristics (or colouration) of music, it simply diminishes distortion from our ears.
Uses: Wear under headphones • when listening to home / car stereo • wear at gigs and live music events • when playing a musical instrument • wear throughout the day to minimise distortion and enhance your audio.
World Health Organisation
The World Health Organisation published evidence (2018) that unpleasant, loud or disruptive noise contributes to raised stress levels, a multitude of health issues and even increased risk of premature death.
Calmer’s technology is informed by research from Newcastle University and the Welcome Trust Centre for Neuro-imaging at UCL, which reported in the Journal of Neuroscience that many of the most unpleasant sounds, such as the scraping of a knife against a bottle, fall in the mid frequency range of about 2 kHz to 5 kHz.
Our ears have evolved to alert us to stress by adding over 20 dB of mid-range resonance, which destroys our ability to hear high definition sound or relax in our modern noisy world. This is known as HRTF (Head Related Transfer Function).
