Impulse performance of Moldex Battleplug Open and Closed
August 11, 2023
The product was tested for its impulse peak insertion loss (IPIL) with different levels of impulses ranging from 140 to 178 dB. For the closed valve conditions, the IPIL ranged between 34 and 37 dB, and for the open valve condition the IPIL ranged between 23 and 35 dB. The test results are comparable to the tests that are reported in the manufacturerâ€™s literature. The impulse were created by different source than the manufacturerâ€™s test lab used.The product performs within the range of what has been published by the manufacturer. We used gunshots, the manufacturer likely used an acoustic shock tube. Gunshots have more high frequency energy and shorter A-duration (initial positive overpressure) than the shock tube. Chintzy clamshell cases for the smallest earplugs won’t hold up to repeated, long term use.
As far as the product goes, the plastic case is rubbish. After opening and closing the case, maybe 100 times the hinge on the cases began to break. The plug tested was the smallest size as it fit the ear canal of the test fixtures best. Having worn the similar Moldex Rocket earplug, it is comfortable, but I canâ€™t say whether the Battleplug with the extra extension and the valve cover is similarly comfortable.

These are great earplugs. I have small ear canals and find most earplugs to big to fit comfortably. These are available in a small size that works perfectly for me. Very happy with these.three sizes available

Very Comfortable and Work Well
August 21, 2021
I have been using the same pair of Sonic Valve II ear plugs for 20 years, and while they worked well enough,Very Comfortable None
they were extremely hard material, and painful to wear, I would only wear them when shooting
with others so I could hear speech, but I am a big guy with small ear canals, and the hardness of the material in the Sonic II was ridiculous since new.
These However are Awesome!!
The standard medium size fit fine, but since I went ahead and bought the small tips when I ordered,
I changed them out and I am still just as happy.
Look, these will not break the bank, very reasonable priced, Very Comfortable, and the sound reduction
works well for me when shooting, while still being able to hear at a somewhat reduced level.
Very comfortable plugs. I am an average size 5'11"...

Very comfortable plugs. I am an average size 5'11" man with normal size ears, I suppose. I bought the medium plugs after seeing my son's army issue BattlePlugs. I wasn't sure which size would fit me best so I got replacement rubber tips in sizes small and large. The rubber tips are easily removable/replaceable and cost only $5. I tried all 3 size tips and found that the small tips fit my ears most comfortably and still provided outstanding sound reduction. The medium worked well but were slightly uncomfortable over time and the large tips do not insert into my ear canals at all. With the plugs inserted and the caps open, voices are easily heard and understood when spoken from someone at close distances. Sound pressure level is clearly reduced while still able to be understood without the speaking person having to raise his voice. The plugs come with a lanyard that is easily removable but I use it to hang the plugs from my neck when not needed. They also come with a clear plastic round carry case with a small black chain. When not needed for longer periods of time I keep my plugs in this carry case and pop them into my cargo pocket. There is construction going on near my house and it gets noisy here sometimes. These plugs are perfect for what I use them for. I have not used them at the range yet, but as compared to my other rubber and foam plugs and Walker's active muffs, these BattlePlugs perform just as well as any other. Buy them... You will not be disappointed.

These earplugs are superb. I use them around aircraft and weapons and they certainly do the job. They fit very well and are extremely comfortable. I highly recommend these.

I use these plugs on the range and at work. I have large ear canals and these fit my ears better then any similar flange earplug on the market
