Traditional foam ear plugs are designed to absorb sound; not filtering out the low frequencies means they’re only doing half a job. Flare Audio wanted to finish the job to the end thus they created Isolate – a new, patent-pending ear protector, a solution for any music and events professional who works in loud sound environments. The ear protectors rival traditional foam or flanged ear plugs and are also ideal for home and other commercial uses, says the company.
Isolate technology works by a revolutionary approach in the materials used. Noise is blocked by a dense material suspended in soft memory foam to isolate it from the effects of conduction. The result is total direct noise isolation for your ears for the first time ever without any electronics!
It has been tested in-house against a typical foam earplug using a direct sound source, this measured the attenuation level achieved by the different materials.
Isolate versions totally out-perform the traditional foam earplug. Isolate Pro Titanium has an additional 8-9dB (more than double the attenuation) with the lowest frequencies, which is crucial for blocking out the deepest snoring, high impact sounds and enabling you to hear the most details in music.
Available in aluminium ($31) and titanium ($65) with a choice of colour or even coated with gold ($260) or rhodium ($390), Isolate ear protectors are reusable; the main component (the aluminum or titanium body) will last a lifetime. Each pair comes with a set of each size.
