Big improvement over foam plugs

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner Written on February 10, 2014
These plugs are much easier and faster to insert in your ear canal compared to having to twist the old fashioned foam plugs and then cramming them into your ear. These work great in conjunction with my electronic ear muffs. I also find the soft materials used more comfortable than the foam plugs that create an outward pressure.

Surefire recommends that you replace them at least every 6 months, but I haven't had any problems using whatever pair I find in my bag at the time.

Pros: Easy and convenient
Cons: Recommended replacement interval...
Would recommend: Yes

Excellent

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, VA Written on April 29, 2012
I could not believe how well these ear protectors work. They are super comfortable, you can hear conversations yet shooting my AR (.223) or my .45cal 1911 were not too loud. These are a must if shooting rifles.
Pros: Quality, fit, performance
Cons: none...
Would recommend: Yes

Surefire Sonic Defenders

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner Written on April 17, 2012
Fits in the ear canal comfortably. Can be worn all day without any issues. Did not work too well at the local indoor ranges but does work well outdoors. Might have to do with the sound waves coming off walls? Very easy to keep clean and sanitary with mild soap and water. Definitely will get another pair for a spare.
Pros: Very comfortable. Easy to clean...
Would recommend: Yes

Works as well as a full headset

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, TX Written on January 14, 2012
I have worn these to an indoor range about a dozen times. They work as well as any headset I own and you can easily hear range commands. They remain confortable even after 2-3 hours. I like them even better at the rifle range because they don't get in the way of a good cheek weld on my sniper rifle. Just rinse them off after each use and they will last a very long time.
Pros: Does not interfer with cheek weld, able to wear for long duration without discomfort, hear range commands
Cons: Takes practice to insert correctly...
Would recommend: Yes

Impressive

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, FL Written on January 9, 2012
I was skeptical when I first saw this product but for the price I had to give it a go. I shot 100 rounds thru an AK 47 and 100 rounds thru a Saiga 12 at an outdoor gun range. Worked great, I will definitely be getting more.
Pros: Worked as advertised. No more bulky headphones.
Cons: None...
Would recommend: Yes

Ear protection

Works great. They slip out just a little but easy to just push back in. More comfortable than muffs....

Surefire EP3 Sonic Defenders

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner Written on January 11, 2011
I am a three-gun competitor and firearms instructor who shoots regularly. I bought the inexpensive Surefire EP3 Sonic Defender earpieces to wear under my Howard Leight Impact Sport Electronic Muffs when shooting center-fire rifles indoors. However, the compact EP3 Sonic Defenders are adequate by themselves for indoor or outdoor pistol ranges. I like the attached plug, which can be inserted for maximum hearing protection or removed to use the EP3 as an earpiece for a two-way radio or MP3 player.

As always, Optics Planet shipped my order instantly and I ordered a couple extra pairs, so I qualified for free shipping.
Pros: Inexpensive, relatively comfortable
Cons: none...
Would recommend: Yes
