I bought a variety of products from Flare in response to my 62-year old husband experiencing extreme noise stress (and tinnitus) in family settings this summer. He tried all of the Flare products and I'm reviewing what we found. Calmer didn't help him much, but our 35-year old daughter was complaining of early stage noise stress (sounds just sounded pointier to her than earlier in her life) and she also tried the Calmer and it was JUST the thing for her. She did need the mini size to be really comfortable in them, but she experienced relief from using the regular ones before the minis arrived for her. We're so grateful to find something that helps her feel more comfortable! Thanks for all your work!
I purchased both the all silicone regular Calmer (which is also great) and the Calmer PRO works even better. My partner has SCDS and wears these every day. They're a lifesaver.
That moment when you fit the second flare into your ear and suddenly the stress starts to dissipate. These are simply
I'm an autistic adult that has problems with certain sounds and easily gets overloaded in noisy situations. I bought these to replace the calmer nights that I had been using more or less 24/7 for the last year and a bit. They still worked but had become worn through being in my ears nost of the time for over a year. Unfortunately, I lost one so had to go without for a while and I definitely noticed that I was getting more overloaded when at work ect without them so I needed to get a replacement. Plus I normally cover them at night and when I need to block out noise with silicone earplugs and without the calmer nights in my ears, the plugs tend to go further in my ears and don't last as long. I looked at the flare site as the calmer nights really helped me the last year or so and my only criticism would be that after a while they bend out of shape (especially seeing as I cover them with silicone earplugs as needed) I came across calmer pro and thought they would be perfect as the aluminium inner keeps them in shape. I bought them and have been using them for a couple of weeks now and again I don't get as overloaded as I do when I'm not wearing them. The aluminium really helps them to keep their shape and I can even wear them comfortably at night covered by a silicone earplug to block out noise. For me they really make a difference and the aluminium core makes them less likely to warp and become less effective. I'm very happy with them.
Truly amazing. I was hesitant at first however with three months time to make sure it suited me I purchased the mini size.
From the moment I first used them I felt calmer. When hubby shouts at me I still feel calm. I have Fibromyalgia and they have given me a quality of life that I thought would never return.
I've told my nurse at our local doctor surgery and she wrote down all the info, so hopefully others will benefit from them as well.
I’m Autistic and Calmer Pro is one of the essential things I always have with me. I wear them whenever I go anywhere that I’ll be around other people. I can’t actually differentiate a difference in how noise sounds, but I do notice that I am calmer when I wear them. Recently, I was at a restaurant and I didn’t have my Calmers, so my body was moving constantly. I literally couldn’t sit still. This was a reaction to all the noise around me and its exactly the sort of thing that Calmer Pro prevents.

I wore mine all afternoon when I was out in the noisy High Street and in the evening at dinner then watching tv! They are Superb!
TECHNOLOGYCalmer PRO reduces resonance (distortion) by using a tiny aluminium waveguide to reflect sound into our ear which bypasses the effect of the Concha.
