EP4 Excellent Performance

Comfortable enough to wear for hours. They take away the sharpness of unexpected loud noise. Even with them in I can have a conversation on the phone. A good product.

earplugs

these are great and very comfortable. I work in an assembly plant where noise levels vary alot. I was suprised at how well they still allow for normal converstation and still block out the extremes. I find that I can wear these all day with out any discomfort.

great ear plugs

There are times when you need the serious, external ear protector type of hearing protection, but these are the next best protectors. The foam type ear plugs are very quiet, but they get dirty after they've been in and out a few times. If your hands are really dirty, the foam ones could become hazardous, even on the first use.

The Surefire plugs go in and out easily but I've never had one come loose if properly installed. There is a little, plug-able hole on most variants if you need to reduce the reduction of sound for communication or whatever. These rival a good foam earplug for quietness but don't have the drawback of tricky installation and possible contamination of the ear canal.

They work!

I was a bit reluctant to try these as my ears and ear canals seem to be a bit odd. Things like Apple ear buds just fall right out and never worked for me. Regardless, I thought I'd give them a try. So far, I'm impressed. They're easy to put in, lock into place as advertised, and knock down the high decibel sounds well without making me feel like I've had concrete poured into my ears.

Very good noise protection

I wore these to the range an put about 500 through my .45ACP and had no problem with deadening the sound. I have yet to use them with my 454 I may use the surefire plugs plus my muffs for that but overall they are a very good inexpensive earplug. When you unplug them you can hear a little bit better while talking to people at the range without having your ears blown out by other people shooting.

Only issue I have is that my right ear plug tends to get a little loose on me after going through a couple clips at the range and I have to press the plug in again. Other than this there awsome.

Great... but not for 12 hours a day

I purchased these because I shift work in a manufacturing plant that requires ear protection. They worked great and they were as advertised.
I was a little disappointed because I needed to wear them for 12 hours a day and it would seem that after a week of wearing them my ears became very tender inside. I ended up switching back to the soft disposable types.
Although they are great for short periods of time I wouldn’t recommend to wear them 12 hours a day 5 days a week.

Description

EP4

For detailed specifications, click here.

EP4 Sonic Defenders® Plus protect your hearing without interfering with your ability to hear routine sounds or conversations. Their triple-flanged stem design fits larger ear canals 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. EP4s 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 Plus 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 triple-flanged stems provide secure seals in the ear canals. A low-profile design means EP4s can be worn while wearing a helmet or mask, or while using a phone or headset. Available in clear, black, or orange.

Comfortable EP4 Sonic Defenders Plus also serve as earpieces for compatible radio communication systems* simply by removing the noise-reducing filter and attaching the earpiece to the system. NOTE: EP4 earpiece no longer provides hearing protection once the noise-reducing filter has been removed.

EP4s 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. For those with smaller (in diameter) ear canals, the two-flange stem of our EP3 Sonic Defenders may provide a better fit than the EP4's three-flange stem.

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

EP4 Sonic Defenders Plus 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.
