pocket or vest ear protection

I have been using these since they first came out, and was very pleased to see Surefire returned to including a protective box, now that accommodates the ear plug strap and that has a key chain for optional attachment.

These originally came with a ear plug only sturdy round plastic case, then they changed to a flimsy quasi disposable double shell, and now an appropriately sized (plugs and cord together. container with key chain. Durability not fully tested.

The critical ear plugs are all day comfortable, especially nice when in hot weather, when traditional head gear is either optional or not practical. Great for outdoors, and additional noise reduction in close quarter rifle work, especially when paired with traditional head gear.

Avid sportsman

I found the EP3 Sonic defenders to be everything as advertised. They fit perfectly and I use them at the range and they are ideal for motorcycle riding. Worth every penny.

EP3 Sonic Defenders protect your hearing without interfering with your ability to hear routine sounds or conversations. Their double-flanged-stem design fits most people and provides a Noise Reduction Rating (NRR) of 24dB. Sounds, at safe levels, are allowed to pass through into the ear canal, while potentially harmful noises (above 85dB) are reduced via a proprietary design that incorporates a special noise-reducing filter. EP3s include attached filter caps, which can be inserted for additional protection and blocking out lower-level noise, like that heard on a plane, where hearing ambient sounds or conversations isn't critical. Right/left color-coded Sonic Defenders are made from a soft but durable, hypoallergenic polymer that provides 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 double-flanged stems provide secure seals in the ear canals. A low-profile design means EP3s can be worn while wearing a helmet or mask, or while using a phone or headset. Available in clear, black, or orange.

Comfortable EP3 Sonic Defenders also serve as earpieces for SureFire Hearing Protection and other compatible radio communication systems* simply by removing the noise-reducing filter and attaching the earpiece to the system. NOTE: EP3 earpiece will not provide hearing protection if the noise-reducing filter is removed.

EP3s are available in small (S), medium (M), and large (L). Proper size is based on the dimensions of your ear's concha bowl. Size "medium" fits most people; however, to ensure the best possible fit, click on the Sizing Chart thumbnail image above or download detailed specifications here to also view the sizing chart on page 4. For those with larger (in diameter) ear canals, the three-flange stem of our EP4 Sonic Defenders may provide a better fit than the EP3's two-flange stem.

EP3 Sonic Defenders 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.
