Perfect for all uses

I bought these for protection while shooting, but recently wore them while watching NHRA (drag racing), which is loud enough to set off car alarms a 100 yards away. No problems what-so-ever. Great investment.

Compact Product that works as good as muffs

Gave this a straight 5 star, but not to be misleading, I haven't had them long enough to comment on reliability, but a close examination brought nothing of concern to light. I also didn't need to contact Customer Service since the order was flawless and the product works as advertised.

Experience with SF lights lead me to believe this product will perform as intended, or exceed your expectations.

Used for factory work

I have been using a pair of 3m optime 95's for th last couple years and started getting neck pain and headaches frequently. turns out that the extra weight and looking down into my machine were causing the issue. not only are these incredibly light but do a better job at blocking the sound of the machinery. Showed them to several people at work who now want to order their own. I'm 6'2" and bought the medium size which are a bit small but they work so well that it's worth buying a second set if you don't get the right fit the first time

These are great

Started wearing while shooting better than earmuffs more comfortable. Now I wear them at work where hearing protection is mandatory. We have our hearing tested once a year and last year there was no hearing loss compared to previous year. Tester asked what I was doing differently so I showed him the EP3 Sonic Defenders he was going to go out and get a set for himself. I wear them all day with out any issues. Also wear them at home while doing yard work using power equipment.

Best hearing protection around

I discovered Surefire Ear Pro during one of my deployments. After that, I have never used anything else. From IEDs to small arms fire, this hearing protection works phenomenally well.
They are, also, extremely durable. I think I purchased my first set around 2006. I used the same set through multiple deployments, and just purchased a new set. The originals are still serviceable. I just wanted a back-up set.
This is the best hearing protection, in the form of ear plugs, that money can buy, in my opinion. You will not be disappointed. Neither will your eardrums.

Great purchase!

Just got these today and went to the range. I was sick of wearing ear muffs and thought I'd try these. What a surprise! Even standing next to a centerfire rifle and shooting a 9mm pistol I was not bothered by noise at all. And they are much more comfortable than muffs. I do high power target shooting and muffs are a royal pain. I'll use these from now on.

Great Product, but too small for my ears

The plugs work perfectly, as long as I don't turn or tilt my head. I will be reordering in the size Large as these will not make a reliable seal around my canal. It's not a fault of the design, these are great for my wife I just need bigger ones to get a good seal. Great product that makes the range a lot easier to talk at.

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.
