Enjoy one of the highest noise reduction ratings in the most comfortable shooting ear plugs you can probably find.

With a 24-dB noise reduction rating (NRR) the EP3 Sonic Defenders provide ear muff-like protection against all small arms fire and hearing damage with a small, comfortable profile that you can wear for hours.

The convenience of active hearing protection without the cost.

Well, almost. Instead of spending $150 or more on active ear muffs or plugs, you can save all that cash for ammo. That's because the EP3 Sonic Defenders use special, removable noise caps that can be opened and closed in seconds, allowing you to activate or "turn off" full hearing protection. This provides an easy way to converse at the range, take instruction, and keep situational awareness when rounds aren't poppin' off.

Made from medical-grade hypoallergenic polymer, the EP3's provide all-day comfort and, with proper cleaning, will last for six months or more.
