    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.”

      Makes a huge difference!

      I was not expecting these to make much of an impact on my day, but it has honestly been so profound. I can't recall feeling so calm in such a long time. I work in Early Childhood Education and I have 2 'robust' children of my own. Wearing these ear plugs means I can respond to children with much more presence and consistency because I'm just not feeling overwhelmed with the general classroom and household chatter and clatters. As a result I have recommended these to so many people - educators, parents, others...

      The only change I would make is I wouldn't bother with the secure option. I was concerned they would easily fall out. I find they sit securely in my ear but the lanyard is what actually dislodges them as the children might grab onto it or it gets muddled up in my clothes or hair. I'll likely cut the lanyard off in the near future.

      These are amazing

      I bought these to help manage sensory overload and misophonia and they are amazing. I have used them almost constantly since I got them, and im so worried Ill lose them that I will be getting another pair. They help so much with taking the edge off my daughters constant noise, especially in the car. They are great for things like extractor fans, indoor playgrounds, supermarkets and driving - anywhere thats overwhelming and noisy really. I feel like I can concentrate and stay in my bubble without missing out on important things. They stay in well, the strap helps keep them secure and they are comfortable and just look like a pair of headphones when out in public.

      Work well, wish they were a bit cheaper.

      Buying constantly, the son needs them for the classroom and gatherings.

      Love the necklace type, not constantly losing one from him running around, now the cable tends to snap from playing rough and tumble, can tie them back together a couple of times before I cut the cords off and use them like the cordless ones.

      Would be nice if they didn't cost $50 a pop, pretty expensive for what they are.

      I work in a noisy environment and suffer from tinnitus. Even though I still notice my tinnitus at night, it is definitely not as loud. Would recommend to ECE teachers!
