EP3 Sonic Defenders
The EP3 Sonic Defenders are fantastic. I play the great highland bagpipes, and use them whenever I play. They keep just enough volume from my ears that I don't get the ringing sensation in my ears after playing, yet they allow enough in for me to properly tune the instrument. They also have the added advantage of being low profile, so they can be worn during a perfomance without being too obvious.

These are the best hearing protection on the market! I'm able to hear other people talking, and other small noises. But when I start shooting they deaden the noise. I have not had any problems or complaints while using these. A great product.

Bought these on a recommendation from a friend and couldn't be happier. Best non-electronic hearing protection you can buy.

Sound off if you got a pair.
These plugs are excellent - they are comfortable, easy to put in and remove, and provide great noise reduction while allowing conversations with relative ease (I've only tested at outdoor ranges, so I don't know how they handle the extra reverberation indoors).

Great product at an affordable price. Very comfortable and works as advertised. When I need a replacement set I will definitely purchase from SureFire.

Made my Granddaughters day
Our 11 year old Granddaughter is very sensative to loud noises. She is also a big fan of Justin Bieber who just happened to have a concert scheduled in our city. My wife and I surprised her with tickets to the concert for her Birthday. Knowing we were going I bought your EP3 Sonic Defenders in advance .Our granddaughter was so nervous about the noise she wanted them in her ears before we entered the building. They worked to perfection. She was able to listen to the concert and enjoy the show without a single issue and said everything sounded great. We were able to enjoy a very special time with our Granddaughter. I cannot thank you enough.

Ep3 sonic defenders
I bought the sonic defender earplugs about a year ago and they are holding up I've been very satisfied with the performance and the comfortability of the sonic defenders. I go shooting twice a month and they are going strong. I like the fact that you all most don't even know there in your ear but yet you never have to worry about them coming lose or falling out. I give these a A++

Product looks good, fits ok but doesn't give me the protection that plain foam plugs provide. More effort to put in than foam plugs. For me in the shotgun sports, only limited use.

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.
