Our Story

COVID-19: A message to our customers...

These are very new and unsettling times for everyone. Please be assured that our customers, our team and everyone we work with are of utmost importance to us. We have no retail stores and so currently we are able to carry on as normal in serving you as best we can and keeping everyone we work with safe.

There are a lot of unknowns for us all, but some things remain constant: Good music, good listening and good friends.

Our mantra is Long Live Ears and that couldn't be more relevant at the moment.

With that in mind we've set up a Facebook Community page for people who want to share music, podcasts and listening experiences.

Sound and audio has the magic ability to transport you to all sorts of places and to elevate and lift your mood or even calm and sooth it. We want to tap into that and do what we can to make this time a little more bearable for everyone.

We are here to help so please get in touch if you have any questions.

In the meantime, stay safe, stay isolated, take care of one another. 

Davies Roberts: Founder Flare Audio

 -----

OUR STORY

Founded in 2010 by British inventor Davies Roberts, we spent our formative years as a pro audio manufacturer and hire company re-inventing the loudspeaker, drawing praise from music industry luminaries including Led Zeppelin’s Jimmy Page, Jarvis Cocker, Richard Hawley and producer ‘Flood’ in the process.

Confident that our technologies could be miniaturised, in 2015 we launched our first consumer earphone via a crowdfunding campaign. The success of the campaign propelled us forward and soon after came our Isolate® ear protector raising over £2 million via crowdfunding campaigns.  We now have an armoury of audio products that have won commendations from highly respected audio professionals and artists: Tony Visconti (Grammy Award winning producer, David Bowie, T-Rex), Julian Lennon, James Rhodes (classical pianist), Fran Healy (Travis)...  

We now ship our ear protectors and earphones to over 183 countries and have gone from a small team of three working from a garage in a back garden to a company of 17 working from Flare HQ on the south coast.

 

OUR MISSION

Flare’s mission is to develop new and advanced sound technologies that improve, protect and enhance our sonic experience. Noise is Flare’s enemy and we are determined to understand distortion at a particle level. We want to minimise all types of distortion from all audio designs, believing that the less distortion the better the connection to the music and the audio world we live in.

We are on a mission to perfect loudspeakers, earphones, headphones, earplugs and every other type of sound producing, enhancing or protecting device for our ears.

At Flare traditional approaches and theories are being replaced by simple and effective technologies that deliver precise, game changing sonic experiences.
