DESCRIPTION

Small product. Huge benefits.

A small device worn in the ear to reduce stress. Calmer features a unique technology that reduces distortion in our ears and calms your environment in a subtle, but potentially life-changing way.

  • Reduces stressful frequencies without muffling sound
  • Perfect for: Sensitive Hearing, Hyper-sensitivity to sound associated with autism, Hyperacusis, Misophonia, noise related stress & other hearing conditions
  • Soothes sound sensitivities & helps you feel calmer
  • Available in standard and mini sizes. Standard fits most and Mini is for those who know they have very small ear canals.
  • Calmer Night edition is available for use during sleep.
  • Note: Calmer is not an ear plug. It dampens unpleasant frequencies in sound which lowers stress and improves your audio experience.

A small wearable device

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.

The result is a natural way to minimise today’s constant barrage of environmental noise stressors which have a negative impact on our mental and physical well-being.

Calmer reduces stress by removing distortion that would usually trigger the human ‘fight or flight’ response.

While this response was a vital part of our evolution to alert us to the slightest sound or threat, in today’s modern world where we no longer need to be alert to the snap of a twig, this added resonance is loading us with unnecessary stress.

Calmer, Sensitive Hearing and Autism

Calmer helps users with sensitive hearing conditions such as Misophonia, Hypersensitivity and Hyperacusis. Users have found that their audio world becomes more bearable when they wear Calmer, with irritating noises being reduced to a much more manageable level.

Hyper-sensitivities (over-responsiveness) and hypo-sensitivities (under-responsiveness) to a wide range of stimuli are often things that autistic people have to deal with on a daily basis. These can include sensitivities to sounds, smell, touch and taste.

Many autistic people are hyper-sensitive to certain sounds and many find bright lights, smells and tastes overwhelming.

Calmer is a small device worn in the ear to reduce stress. We originally designed Calmer to specifically help us all to deal with noises that cause us stress and anxiety. They do this without reducing the volume so you don’t feel disconnected from the world.


Using Calmer


Here’s a graph to show you how Calmer is affecting sound 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. As a result, this produces a much more even response and therefore an improved and more pleasant sound.

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

As these trigger frequencies are reduced, so too are your stress levels.


How it works


Calmer removes the resonant effect of the Concha by using a tiny waveguide inside our ears. 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.

“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.”

    So good that forgot I was wearing them! (And didn't realize when I lost one... )

    Dear Flare, your Calmer ear buds are amazing! They look subtle and don't stand out. I didn't think that they were working at first because I couldn't feel them or 'hear' any difference. But I realized after awhile that I didn't have to 'hear' different to 'feel' different. The effect on the noise clutter is subtle but the effect on my anxiety due to overstimulation is noticeable. I planned on only wearing them at work and ended up wearing them all of the time. I almost forgot to take them out for bed they are so comfy.

    They were a game changer at a music festival I went to but unfortunately because I could barely feel them and they don't effect the overall sound that much I lost one and didn't notice right away. So I'm suffering now that I know how much Calmer I could be feeling but am not!

    Is there any chance that you sell single ear buds? And I might get one of those strings next time so I don't lose one again!

    Review

    After receiving a level 1 ASD diagnosis late last year, I recently decided to purchase a set of the calmers based on a recommendation from Mom on the Spectrum on YouTube. I am really pleased with this product as it has greatly helped me manage sensory overload in the workplace. I have personally experienced a reduction in stress levels, improved concentration, and less fatigue at the end of the day.

    Life saver

    I love these. I suffer from noise sensitivity after having a stroke. I still need to hear what goes on around me but the flare takes edge off. I bought clear ones and nobody in my family noticed that they were in my ears.
