"As a live music photographer, I spend a lot of my time close to PA systems, amplifiers, machine gun kick-drums and crashing cymbals. Without Flare Audio Isolate ear protection, my life would be very different. I shoot music because of my love for it and if I damage my hearing, it would hamper my ability to enjoy that music for the rest of my life."
I love these things. They work really great, are comfortable and built to a great spec. These help me when the kids are running around in the early hours, so I get that extra 30 mins - 1 hr of sleep.
Shipping to South Africa is hella expensive, but even with that it's worth it at the price
I wear these when I practice with my band and we're often really loud and these are the perfect ear plugs, they've really helped protect my ears from the high decibels! Our drummer has really loud and bright cymbals and these block out the harsh sound and bring it down to a comfortable level. Such a great buy! Highly recommend!
Wear them at Heavy Metal and Hard Rock Concerts. Due their job pretty well with a good fit.
I originally got my first Isolate earplugs in 2018 - they were perfect, the most comfortable ear plugs, and perfect for gigs - immediately the tinnitus after live music was significantly reduced to almost nothing. I took them to festivals and would happily wear them for nearly 10 hours on and off. After wearing out the foam after a few years, I replaced the foam with a second set from the original packaging, and got another two years out of them.
I recently lost my first set while moving house - very annoyed! I went on to Flare and bought an updated set + keychain capsule + lanyard. The new spherical versions are even more comfy than my original cylindrical set, and feel even more durable. The keychain is especially handy - I no longer forget to take them out the house before gigs, and I'm no longer worried about them being damaged (I was just keeping them in my wallet pouch before which was why they got worn out). I took them to my first festival recently and the lanyard is great for putting them in and out quickly.
If you go to gigs/festival a lot, these are essential. I recommend them to anyone who'll listen!
Helps at both concerts and at home, makes life much more peaceful.
I’ve been using these to limit the noise from my student flat and I’m not disappointed. Does the job perfectly.
Isolate comes in three models. Clear, Aluminium and Pro
Pro | Our premium Pro model not only has the highest grade turned titanium finish but also has the most even frequency attenuation.
Aluminium | The Aluminium variant has a naturally anodised finish and is precision turned from solid aluminium.
Clear | The Clear version is made from injection moulded ABS and features a completely transparent look.
A Reliable Universal Fit
The difference between the highest and lowest test value for each frequency band is called Standard Deviation (row three).
The lower this number is, the closer each test subjects results were. For example; at 1000 Hz the difference between the highest and lowest test result was 3.0 dB.
A low difference like 3.0 means subjects were achieving a similar universal and accurate fit meaning a more reliable and safer experience.
Other leading earplug manufacturers have a higher standard deviation shown here.
The attenuation difference between the SNR High/Medium/Low ratings is also just 3 dB whereas the market leading standard foam earplugs is as much as 10 dB.
By attenuating frequencies more evenly, the user is safely protected from harmful levels of bass, mid and treble whilst enjoying an accurate sound experience.
Just at a much lower volume.
