Product Description

Affordable, reusable "full-block" EP5 Sonic Defenders Max utilize a soft, adjustable, triple-flanged stem to seal the ear canal and block out potentially harmful sounds, providing an impressive Noise Reduction Rating (NRR) of 26dB. EP5s are an excellent choice for industrial, tactical, and general applications where maximum protection against continual noise levels is desired and the ability to hear ambient sounds or conversations is not a priority. Made from soft but durable, hypoallergenic polymer and featuring our patented EarLock by SureFire design for unparalleled retention and a proper fit every time, EP5s provide all-day comfort and extended product life (3 to 6+ months, depending on usage and care). Their low profile allows them to be worn with a mask, helmet, or supplemental hearing muffs, as well as makes them more comfortable for sleeping. EP5s come in three sizes small, medium, and large with mediums fitting most adults.

These are substantially better than I had expected. I am using them for a noisy, distracting office environment. I know that's not what they are really for, but I took a chance anyway. WOW. I cannot hear a thing. I can't hear the copier, others shuffling about, etc... I cannot hear the person standing 3 feet away talking directly to me. I can't hear them AT ALL. I figured they would muffle voices and noise better than the foam ear plugs but there is no muffling at all...I literally cannot hear a thing. I swear I live in a sound-proof box now! It's like someone found the MUTE button!!!

I've always had some trouble with regular ear buds (like music ones) hurting my ears so I went for the small, instead of the medium, which is for "average" folks they stated. They are a perfect fit. The medium, I think, would have hurt my ears. (I'm a Caucasian woman, on the thin side, for a reference point.)

These go in so easily (not like the stupid foams ones that you have to roll up and shove in quickly and hope it seals, only to do a crappy job anyway)! And the outer part of the ear bud fits perfectly into my ear, securing it into place. There is no way to have these not in far enough or in too far. They are perfect.

Best ear plugs I have used so far. They worked so well I had to take them out to hear what my brothers were saying when we weren't shooting.

I did not know what size to get until I went to Surefire's website I thought the size referred to the plug itself (the part that goes into the ear canal) the size actually refers the height of your ears concha bowl which holds the outer earpiece in place.

Small = Concha bowl height less than 1"
Medium = Concha bowl height 1"
Large = Concha boal height larger than 1"

Medium fits most people.

I shoot AR-15s competitively. Muffs often are bulky and get in the way of a good position. Foam plugs just don't reduce noise enough to be comfortable. I've used these plugs a lot in the last year and have had splendid results with them.
Buy a couple of pairs.

Best set of ear plugs yet. I ride my open face helmet on my motorcycle a and wind in ears bites. These seem to be the best yet. I can actually hear after i complete my ride.

i work in a factory as a mechanic, and things can get pretty loud near equipment, especially ammonia compressors. these babies do an excellent job of blocking noise, provided you get them in correctly. the round pieces go right inside the bowl of your ear and keep them in place for a long time, even through sweat. we have an earplug program at work, but quite frankly, it seems to be done to appease osha, rather than for our actual protection since the earplugs provided are pretty cheap. i decided to take things into my own hands because i am the one that suffers if the plugs dont work. and these are well worth the price. you can clean them and keep useing them indefinitely. i have had mine for about 5 months and have cleaned them a couple of times. still work like a charm.

update 4/18/14: i have milked the life of these plugs out to about a year, give or take. after that long they start to lose their pliability and thus their effectiveness. but i have since replaced them with new versions of the same thing. and will probably continue to do so.

I bought 2 pairs and already one was taken from me...by my wife. They fit great. I wear them when I am mowing, working in the shop, running leaf blower, etc. They do a great job of cutting down the noise but still allowing you to hear. Very comfortable. I tried the normal hearing protection (earmuffs) but mowing in the hot summer wearing those was just uncomfortable and they would get all sweaty and dirty. These are much better. I mowed for 2 hours, with a push mower and the tractor, and didn't have any issues. The only negative comment I have is trying to tell which one is for the right ear and which is for the left. There is this little "L" and "R" molded into the body, but they are almost impossible to see. I took a Sharpe and traced over them so I could tell at a glance.

I bought these to attend a formula 1 race. They performed extremely well. My only advice is to use the fit guide on the company website to make sure you are getting the right size. I did this and they fit perfectly. They stayed in my ears without creaping out at all.

I find over-the-head ear protection uncomfortable and unnatural, are you really going to be shooting "prepared" all the time in-real life situations with a headset on? The Surefire plugs work great and are small enough to carry all the time for duty and off.

Went from Surefire EP3s to these EP5s. The noise protection indoors is significantly better in comparison with the EP3s, all Surefire plugs work great outdoors. The same level of comfort you expect from Surefire plugs.
