One of the highest noise reduction ratings available in a set of ear plugs.

Surefire's EP5 Sonic Defenders Max out-match many large shooting ear muffs, thanks to a powerful full-block noise filter that offers 26 decibels of noise reduction. In such a comfortable, low-profile and affordable package, these ear plugs are a must-have for any serious shooter.

Triple flange ear fitment for all-day comfort.

The EP5 ear plugs use a patented ear locking system that reduces pressure points in and around the ear, while ensuring your plugs never fall out when you're running and gunning. Thanks to their soft, hypoallergenic polymer construction, these plugs are capable of being worn for hours without discomfort or chaffing.

How are the EP5's different from EP4 and EP3 plugs?

The EP3 and EP4 plugs both provide 24 dB of noise reduction. They use removable noise filter caps that allow for "full volume" hearing when you're not shooting. The EP5 plugs are designed for maximum protection, using a fixed, non-removable noise filter that increases protection to 26 dB. Although 2 decibels of extra protection doesn't sound like much, it is significant.
