Filtered Foam-Tipped Earplugs

Sonic Defenders

These hearing protectors are grade A products. My wife also has a couple of pair and they enable us to fire carbines, rifles, and shotguns without clunky electronic ears getting in the way. I highly recommend them and there will be some under our Christmas tree for sure.

These ear buds are excellent protection. The fit is perfect and the removable filter is great. I actually shoot with the filter cap not inserted, they reduce the noise plenty and this way you can hear range commands or communicate with a friend better. I also like that the foam canal tips are replaceable. I have absolutely no complaints, quality is great as with any SureFire product.

SureFire EP7 Sonic Defenders

Works exactly as advertised, which makes this item a real bargain for the price. Sure beats those powered muffs. Occasionally, the retaining string got caught between my butt stock and my shoulder or cheek, which caused the earplug to pop out of my ear canal upon firing. Now I just pull the retaining string up under my hat. Problem solved.

EP7 Sonic Defenders

I shoot shotgun sports, mostly sporting clays and discovered the Surefire hearing protection on the internet. I am very satisfied with the EP7s. They offer great protection, are extremely comfortable and still provide the ability to hear while talking to other shooters. Price is right for the product. I will continue to use and recommend these to others.

They don't do the job

I was hoping to use these instead of the bulky ear-muffs. No dice. Tried them at the range for the first time and the .45 two lanes down really hurt. Fortunately I still had my muffs with me.

Having small ear canals makes it difficult to find protection that fits well other than the custom stuff. Saw these just before biting the bullet on a set, figured it was worth a try. Love them, have turned a bunch of guys at the gun club on to them, and even bought a pair for my wife. She loves them for lawn mowing, etc. . Went almost 6 mos without replacing the tips, cleaned occasionally with alcohol.

Good job, SureFire!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Best ones I've tried

Everything I had hoped to get out of these was there. They're comfortable, effective and cost-effective. Plan to purchase more soon.

I love these ear plugs! They are the only ear plugs I have ever used that I can actually hold a normal conversation while wearing them, while someone is shooting right next to me. They work well with my radio as well. I have yet to come across anything loud enough to force me to add over the ear protection. I love these. I recommend them to all my Marines. I have even started selling them in my store.

Worked great.....for awhile

I really liked these when I first got them. My left ear has a strange pathway and it is tough to get the roll up foam ones to seal well. These were easier to get a good seal on.

Unfortunately, after about 5-6 outings, the tips were shot. This is too high a price to use ratio for me.

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.
