COATINGSPRO NOVEMBER 2016 25 BETTER SAFE THAN SORRY Flare Audio Releases Upgraded Ear Protector Flare Audio, Ltd., a United Kingdom- based designer and manufacturer of professional audio products and accessories, has recently released ISOLATE — a new, patent-pending ear protector for professionals who work in loud environments. e ear protector rivals traditional foam or flanged ear plugs, the company said, adding that it is also ideal for home and other commer- cial uses. Traditional earplugs rely on absorption to attenuate sound, which rapidly meets its limit — particu- larly with bass frequencies. However, ISOLATE protectors reflect sound away from the ears, thus achieving much greater attenuation. is is because they do not accept sound into the ear canal. Reusable and designed for life-long use, Flare Audio says its product is ideal for any use aimed at reducing sound levels, including work on construction sites, road works, and projects involving heav y machinery. "Initial in-house testing of ISOLATE has yielded better attenuation than any other ear plug," said Davies Roberts, founder of Flare Audio. e protector is designed with discreet, custom-de- signed memory foam tips.
