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.

EP3's are essential kit

My sure fire EP3's are essential for any range trip, whether it be dove, quail or SBR's and pistols. They're a great supplement to muffs at an indoor range and provide great performance and confront at an attractive price.

ear plugs

Wore these to an indoor range & my eats rang for two days. Not effective is an understatement to say the least.

SureFire Ear Pro Sonic Defenders

I have been using these plugs for over a year and they are fantastic. They are comfortable and do not irritate my ears. I use them in Power Plants with high noise levels at work and I also use them for hearing protection with my band. You can't see them when they are in your ears and they work great on stage. I can still hear normally but the cymbals and load surges get supressed. When I get home I can sleep without my ears ringing. They are also easy to maintain and clean.

Best bang for buck

Dollar wise these are the best value for hearing protection. They are easy to wear, easy to hear with, and useful when you want to double up for big bore shooting. I recommend having some in every shooting bag.
