Bought these to shoot trap after using foam ear plugs for years. The only "odd" thing I noticed was I could hear guns closing, etc as clearly as I could without protection. Once the shot is fired, the plugs do their job. I've recommended them many times and quite a few of the shooters at the range now use them. They work great!

I bought these as an addition to some ear plugs that were issued to me by the Air Force Flight Surgeon's Office about 32 years ago. I use these on the range as well as while mowing the lawn and they work great.

EP7 Sonic Defenders® Ultra
I picked up 2 sets of these ear plugs. I have only used the first set so far. They seem very well made and look like they will last. I am only an occasional shooter, but these are great. You can carry on a conversation without feeling like you are straining. They are also very comfortable.
As for size, I was lucky that my ears are pretty normal size and the mediums fit great.

I hadn't had a chance to user them too much but I can't complain. Surefire makes great products and I've yet to find one I hate.

be careful of sizing
I had no idea what size I needed. Bought the wrong size and have never been able to wear them. There's 20 bucks wasted.

EP7 Sonic Defenders Ultra
I am a sporting clays shooter and shoot every weekend. I do not like muff style hearing protection. I've used a band style plug insert type that is worn over the top of the head. I've now switched to your product. It is economically priced, ease to use and maintain, and comfortable to wear. One of the best purhcases I've made in awhile.

EP7S Badass ear plug
I would say these are a must have and I wish I would have had them a long time ago as I could have mitigated some of the permanent damage ive done to my ears over the years. I use them for when I go shooting and also during some of the really loud events I work at and could not be happier with the level of protection they provide.

EP7 Sonic Defenders Ultra
I've had these for 5 months now and wear them twice a week at the indoor range. The first time out I worn them with my Electronic muffs for extra protection since I was shooting 1911 .45. Half way through I took off the muffs to see just how good the EP7's work... WOW, I am impressed! I have not worn the muffs since. These are the most comfortable ear plugs I have ever worn. Just received a set of replacement Canal Tips. Good job, Surefire!

Foam to EP7
I used to use 32 dB NRR foam earplugs, but they were problematic because they were non-reusable, got dirty very quickly, and could get stuck in the ear if one were to actually take advantage of its full 32 dB. The EP7's are the perfect solution: easily cleaned, reusable, and secure. However, like foam earplugs, they do attenuate the high frequencies.

EP7 Sonic Defenders Ultra protect your hearing without interfering with your ability to hear routine sounds or conversations. Their foam-tipped stem design, featuring soft memory-foam Comply™ Canal Tips, fits most people and provides a Noise Reduction Rating (NRR) of 28dB. 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. EP7s include attached filter caps, which can be inserted for additional protection and blocking out lower-level noise, like that heard on a plane, in situations where hearing ambient sounds or conversations isn't critical. Right/left color-coded Sonic Defenders Ultra 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 foam-tipped stems provide secure seals in the ear canals. And their low-profile design means they can be worn while wearing a helmet or mask, or while using a phone or headset. Available in clear, black, or orange.
Comfortable EP7 Sonic Defenders Ultra also serve as earpieces for compatible radio communication systems* simply by removing the noise-reducing filter and attaching the earpiece to the system. NOTE: EP7 earpiece will not provide hearing protection if the noise-reducing filter is removed.
EP7s 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, review the earpiece sizing chart by clicking on the Sizing Chart image. EP7 Sonic Defenders Ultra 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 and an extra set of memory foam Comply™ Canal Tips; replacements available--see Parts and Accessories on this page.
