Use for school



Purchased to use in a loud school environment.  Fit  is great design is nice but the left ear plug came apart the third time I used it.  Called customer service and they offered to replace the left ear plug but the wait would be 4 weeks for a replacement.  Suggested I  use the broken one tell the new one arrived.  Seriously..... Its not safe to use something in my ear that might get stuck with no way to pull it back out. Epic fail.  Try them at your own risk.  Ill pass.

Can't get a good seal.

It seems to be designed well but I can't get a good seal in my right ear. It seems that the silicon plug just bends while trying to get it in, instead of going straight in.

At 2 weeks -- seem great

Have been using the earplugs for about 2 weeks and so far I am very pleased. Work in a forge, making knives on an anvil and using grinders and saws---seem to be working well. Unlike the more generic earplugs, you have to be sure they are positioned correctly in your ear canals to get the best result. Since only had 2 weeks, can't speak of reliability, but appear to be well made. Will let you know if my opinion changes, but so far great.

Are these in?

I can't tell if I'm even wearing these. I mean everything is just as loud with them in as without them. I ordered a medium. Maybe I should've gotten large?

EP5 - Perfect for motorcycle riding

I use earplugs when going to concerts and riding motorcycles. I've had great success with other SureFire plugs which led me to try and now love the EP5s.

The EP5s intended use is to greatly reduce noise levels. One of the bikes I ride is quite loud and the droning volume of the pipes and wind (even though I wear a full face helmet) can cause ringing after several hours on the road (even with standard ear plugs). The EP5s really give me the noise reduction I'd been looking for. It's not so much a reduction that I feel my senses have been dulled, these actually help me concentrate more due to the lower level of noise I would be bombarded with while being on the bike.

The plugs are very comfortable and I don't notice any discomfort even when in for hours at a time.

If you have a loud bike or even need to remove the noise from the wind, these are the plugs.

Great ear protection

I use these to double up on ear protection when I shoot. They are low profile and fit comfortably under heavier headphone-style ear protection. They stay put and really do lower noise levels. As a competitive shooter, I hit the range a fair amount, and these stand up to wear quite well. I just wash them after every use with some dish soap.

Great for both shooting and motorcycle riding

I've tried man monarch ear plugs for riding motorcycles. These block out the sound better than anything I've tried AND they fit great under a full face helmet. Nice and flush.

Affordable, reusable "full-block" EP5 Sonic Defenders® Max utilize a soft, adjustable, triple-flanged stem to seal the ear canal and block out potentially harmful sounds, providing an impressive Noise Reduction Rating (NRR) of 26dB. EP5s are an excellent choice for industrial, tactical, and general applications where maximum protection against continual noise levels is desired and the ability to hear ambient sounds or conversations is not a priority.* EP5s are made from soft but durable, hypoallergenic polymer for all-day comfort and an extended product life (up to 6+ months, depending on usage and care). Their patented EarLock® retention rings lock the earplugs in place, while soft, adjustable triple-flanged stems provide secure seals in the ear canals. A low-profile design allows EP5s to be worn with a mask, helmet, or supplemental hearing muffs, as well as makes them more comfortable for sleeping. EP5s come in three sizes—small, medium, and large—with mediums fitting most adults.

For best fit, click on the small Sizing Chart image at left.

Sonic Defenders Max are available in clear, black, or orange and are sold as a single left/right set or in a box containing 25 sets. Each set is packaged in a convenient carry case and includes a polymer lanyard.

*For hearing protection with the ability to hear lower-level sounds and conversations, use filtered EP3 Sonic Defenders or EP4 Sonic Defenders.
