"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."

Davies Roberts CEO and Inventor

One product. Two huge benefits.

Experience better Sound. Calmer greatly improves the audio quality we hear in any situation by reducing distortion in the human ear. Wear under headphones, whilst listening to your home HiFi and at concerts for a clearer sound, increased definition and an upgraded listening experience.

Calmer reduces stress by reducing distortion that would usually trigger the human ‘fight or flight’ response. Wear them and feel calmer in the most natural way.

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.

Calmer and Tinnitus

The effect that Calmer has had on some peoples tinnitus was a big surprise to us.

Calmer was designed to reduce irritating resonances in the sound we hear. By doing this it seems that they have helped some people’s tinnitus.

We are very aware that tinnitus is a long standing stressful condition with very little respite for some people and that it is a topic of great sensitivity. Everyone is different and there are many different types of tinnitus – the way that Calmer has helped some people is an unexpected benefit and we are looking into why this is happening.

We have some theories but we are working with focus groups in the health service and tinnitus support groups to further research this. To read more about Calmer and tinnitus please click the link below.

How it works

Calmer removes resonance by using a tiny waveguide inside our ears that removes the effect of the Concha. The Concha is the small shell shape that connects to our ear canal which normally resonates mid frequency sounds.

By removing this resonance mid frequency sounds have none of their normal painful aspects.

“Calmer can upgrade a standard pair of headphones into an audiophile experience. It enables you to upgrade your current audio set up without spending a fortune to replace it.”

Davies Roberts, CEO and Inventor.

Using Calmer

Here's a graph to show you how Calmer is affecting energy in our ears. As you can see, the blue area shows a reduction in unwanted energy (distortion) between the frequencies of roughly 2 kHz - 8 kHz when Calmer is worn.

The black area (without Calmer) shows the natural peaks of energy that result in harsh noises.

By reducing these harsh boosted frequencies, you will hear more detail in your sound.

“We conducted a range of tests on Calmer and found it to significantly reduce sound levels at middle to high frequencies (2 kHz – 8 kHz). This successfully meets Flare’s design objective.”

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).
