Product Description

Product Description

Surefire EP3 Sonic Ear Defenders (Pair)
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.

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.

Colour Name: ClearSize: Medium Verified Purchase
Bought these for two reasons, first is to use with a radio earpiece (acoustic tube) as other varieties do not "hold" on in your ear enough and there is constant re-adjustment. These however are great (on one ear) .

I found the fit on my left ear to be absolutely perfect, but not on my right (clearly not built equally!) , my right ear has a slightly larger "concha" (The bowl bit inside your ear) , so ideally I'd like to see these available in singles, so that you don't end up with two pairs (One medium, one large) as i have, with one pair being a Medium and Large, for actual defending of your ears when using machinery, and and the other being a medium on it's own for Radio use.

All in, a great product and so far, very comfortable. Might try the EP4's next.

Amazing product. Comes with small box for transport. I use them when I go shooting, and they are really really good. You can have a normal conversation while wearing them. Super confortable and easy to put on.

My 1st time with in-ear thingies but they fit nice and comfortable without giving that underwater feeling. At 1st I wondered if they were doing anything as I could hear normal conversation just as before but on a quite cramped indoor range firing an unsilenced semi auto was loud but not damagingly so. 2thumbs up

Still a little unsure as it seems strange to carry on a conversation whilst gunfire is happening. These don,t cut out all of the but seem to take the "crack" from it (I shoot on an indoor range with people using full bore carbines). The plugs are very comfortable and You can place in and forget about them.

I never intended to use these for shooting, but I hoped they'd provide good noise reduction because that's there intended purpose. Unfortunately not! These don't make any difference whatsoever to any degree of sound, my music earphones with nothing playing provide better noise reduction than these and they cost a lot less. I had wanted something less obvious than ear muff defenders to wear on a daily basis and unfortunately these aren't it.

I needed defenders to reduce the noise of shot gun dischage. The defenders didn't work for me, they didn't block out the noise, were extreamly uncomfortable to wear and within a few minutes I reverted to my original ear plugs.

I recently bought these, and have used them with both blanks as well as on the shooting range, and I do not regret my purchase.

They work well when doing patrols, where you have to be quiet, need to be able to listen to your surroundings, as well as communicate quietly with the rest of the unit.

They reduce the noise nicely when firing blanks, but when I was on the shooting range, I felt they didn't quite reduce the noise enough.
They are easy to fit into your ears, and don't move much, though sometimes need a little push to stay in the ear. Because of that, I've also bought the EP4, which has a longer stem.
