Tested and certified hearing protection with triple-flanged comfort.
What's all that mean? That means the EP4 Sonic Defender Plus ear plugs have passed the ANSI STD S3.19-1974 test standards to certify their noise reduction rating (NRR) of 24 decibels. If you're new to shooting ear pro, this is a pretty significant level of protection for any ear plugs -- and they cost a fraction of full ear muffs and active ear pro.
Learn what NRR is: Read the Shooter's Guide to Hearing Protection.
Activate and deactive protection in seconds, just like active ear pro.
Active hearing protection can cost hundreds of dollars. Most active ear pro comes in the form of ear muffs with electronics built in. The EP4's provide similar performance at a fraction of the price, thanks to removable filter caps that can be single-handedly inserted in a few seconds. This allows you to retain situational awareness and have normal conversations when you're not sending rounds downrange.
How are these different than the EP3 Sonic Defenders?
The EP4 Sonic Defenders Plus provide a triple-flange ear fit, as opposed to the EP3's double-flange. This provides a tighter lock-up inside the ear for rapid movement and long-term wear without risk of your plugs falling out. The EP3 and EP4 plugs both provide 24 decibels of noise reduction, but the EP4's ratings are certified.
