How It Works

Here's what some more Flare friends had to say

Stephen Fry | Actor, Author, Broadcaster and Comedian

“Simply incredible. I think it’s the clarity that so stuns me, clarity without any hint of the coldness and loss of warmth that is the usual trade-off in achieving that level of precision… clarity + depth = joy.”

Barb Morrison | Film Composer, Producer | Blondie, Rufus Wainwright

"I just started checking my mixes on them and they were the most honest what I was hearing in the studio, they were the most clear and had the most truth."

Neil Gaiman | Author |The Sandman, Coraline, Stardust, American Gods

"I've had to listen to and sign off on a lot of audio and stuff that's been coming through. On television shows like the Sandman where I will be getting final sound mixes to listen to and the thing that made it easy, the thing that made it bearable was my little Flare headphones. I would put them in, they would fit, they would head what felt like all the way deep into my brain. And I would be there and listening, and it was magic, and they're magic. And I don't know how they do it."

Isy Suttie | Comedian, actress, writer

"They enhance my listening experience of music. I absolutely love these headphones. They make you feel like you're at a gig. That's the only way to explain it. So you can be washing up or walking along the street and your feel like you're in Brixton Academy. Right in the middle of the music and it is transformative. I don’t know how they do it. It probably involves some kind of magic. I love Flare. I think they're a brilliant company and I'm very pleased that they're in my life."

Chris Kimsey | Producer and Engineer, The Rolling Stones, Duran Duran | Sound Consultant and Chairman at Olympic Sound Studios

"They just seemed to be extraordinarily balanced between the bottom end and the mid and the top end everything was very, very clear. In working on mixing reggae you use a lot of spin delay echoes and in mixing with the e-prototype I could hear the trail of the echo even longer than I could when I was listening on the speakers which just showed how much more I was hearing - I was experiencing."
