SureFire EP3 Details

SureFire EarPro Sonic Defenders® Variable Noise Reduction Shooter's Ear Plugs protect your hearing without interfering with your ability to hear routine sounds or conversations.

Designed for shooters, EarPro Sonic Defenders offer an exceptional solution to many of the other common, hearing protection challenges.

Sonic Defenders feature a double-flange stem design that fits most people and provides a Noise Reduction Rating (NRR) of either 11dB (with stoppers open) or 24 dB (with stoppers inserted.) EarPro Sonic Defenders® feature attached stopper plugs, which can be inserted to help block out lower-level noise like that heard on a plane, or in situations where hearing ambient sounds or conversations isn't critical, such as when trying to sleep.

With the stoppers open, sounds at safe volume levels are allowed to pass through the earplugs into the ear canal with just a small amount of attenuation letting you clearly hear conversations, range officer commands, traffic noise, and warning sounds. With the stoppers either open or closed, potentially harmful noises (above 85dB) are instantly reduced via a proprietary design that incorporates an acoustic filter. As the noise level increases, the attenuation provided by the acoustic filters also increases, giving you increasing protection instantly and continuously as you need it.

The right/left color-coded Sonic Defenders are made from a soft but durable, hypoallergenic polymer and are ergonomically shaped, with an adjustable-stem design, providing a secure fit, all-day comfort, and extended product life (3 to 6 months or more, depending on usage and care). Sonic Defenders low-profile design means they can be worn while wearing a helmet or mask or while using a phone or headset.

Medium double-flanged EP3 Sonic Defenders fit most people comfortably. Sizing is based on the size of the ear's Helix Bowl. Consult Sizing Chart for proper fit.

For those with larger ear canals, triple-flanged EP4 Sonic Defenders Plus may provide a better fit.

SureFire EarPro Sonic Defenders® Variable Noise Reduction Shooter's Ear Plugs are recommended for all the following:

Shooting practice and hunting

Motorcycling (stoppers out in town, stoppers in at highway speeds)

Concerts and other live performances (use stoppers during especially loud periods)

Hyperacusis sufferers and those with overly sensitive hearing (Sonic Defenders take the edge off a noisy world but still let you hear)

Flying travelers (stoppers out let you converse, but reduce background noise by about half; put stoppers in to sleep)

These ear plugs are excellent technology. I work as a tradesman, and I needed a wayt o protect my ear drums from damage but still be able to hear my co workers. The sonic ear defendors work perfectly. I do not do alot of product reviews unless they meet an advanced level of satisfaction. Buy them. They are worth every penny.

I purchased these to cut down wind noise when riding my motorbike. I used the Sizing Guide and ordered a Small Size and a Medium Size. I found the Small size too small. I also found them quite fiddly to correct insert because the plastic is soft. However, when correctly inserted they are terrific for cutting down the wind noise. Regards,

Absolutely the best earplugs on the market! You can hear everything around you while being protected from massive cracks and bangs. I never leave home without them for work or just around the yard, mowing or trimming. Once you find the size for you, it is heaven.

Excellent hearing protection! More comfortable than regular headsets and I definitely recommend this product. When I'm at the shooting range people can't see them and always tell me to wear hearing protection...I show them and they don't believe it!

Takes a bit of work adjusting the fit and learning how to set them in your ear. Once figured out tho, these plugs work very well, especially for the price.

August 25, 2013
Only one problem I have with them is getting them situated correctly in my ears. It takes a lot of fiddling with them, but when finally they get settled, they do a very good job of blocking noise if you use the little teeny covers to cover up the small hole in each plug.

1. The fit is great, they stay in. 2. The comfort is excellent. You forget you have them on. 3. The sound reduction is very good. 4. Only one problem, the little "stopper" on one of them came out and I cannot find it. You have to be careful and not use this to pull on when removing them. Wish the design retained the stoppers better when not in use.

Bought these to replace basic earplugs. The EP3's are super comfortable and fit perfectly. The noise reduction was perfect, wore them for about 3 hours straight and didn't have any discomfort.

January 21, 2013
Wore these ear plugs to the sporting clay range yesterday & was happy with my recent purchase. I wore them for around 3 hours, they were so comfortable I forgot I was wearing them. They provided enough protection with the stoppers out for me to shoot without my ears hurting & were great for conversations between stands. Highly recommend these ear plugs. Great ear protection for an amazing price!!!

I tried these out on the weekend, as I got them for an actual tactical earpiece rather than Hearing Protection and I must say they work really well with an acoustic tube and are very comfortable. I used these for upwards of 6 hours and was amazed at how well they fit, well worth what they cost, am putting a few friends onto them.

Excellent product. Sized to fit your ear canal adds to long wearing comfort while affording sound protection as well as ones ability to carry on normal conversation when in use.

January 30, 2012
I have a small ear canal, so my ear bud headphones and the foam ear plugs fall out. I hate using a ear muff because of the bulky-ness. These fit great and don't move thanks to the use of the helix bowl fitment. Used them around the shop grinding and cutting metal, worked great! Then this weekend I went skeet shooting and wore them. Very comfortable and recommended!

I got them to be able to hear quail fly, yet protect my hearing. Although they reduce the sound of a shotgun blast by maybe 30% they also eliminate any possibility of hearng quail get up.

May 10, 2011
I've tried the Small Size sonic defender. I have smallish ear canals, and it could be that my right ear canal is different than my left ear canal. I had trouble keeping the plugs in my ears, especially my right ear. I'd put it in and it would stay in place, but after about 5-30 minutes it works itself loose. I don't know if my ears are at fault or if I just got a bad set. I've also tried the Medium EP4 Sonic defender Plus. The medium size is too big for me, so I don't think the problem with the EP3 has to do with the small size. When in place, the plugs worked great for reducing noise while allowing me to talk. I also love how low profile these are. When people have noticed them, some thought they were hearing aids. They make me appear less anti-social than when I wear other types of plugs. I work in customer service on a casino floor and am sensitive to the overly loud music but I need to be able to talk to guests. With the Ep3 I could even use a cell phone with no problem because it was recessed into my ear and I could hear well with it. If these plugs stayed in my ear I'd give them 5/5 because they are just what I need, too bad they won't stay in place. Maybe some day I'll buy another pair and see if it works better.
