Surefire EP5 Sonic Defenders Max
Affordable, reusable "full-block" SureFire 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 a fantastic choice for industrial, tactical, and general applications where maximum hearing protection against continual noise levels is desired and the capability to hear ambient sounds or conversations isn't a priority.* EP5s are made from soft but durable, the hypoallergenic polymer for all-day comfort and an extended product life (up to 6+ months, depending on usage and care). Their patented EarLock® retention rings lock the earplugs in place, while soft, adjustable triple-flanged stems provide secure seals in the ear canals. Low-Profile design allows EP5s to be worn with a mask, helmet, or supplemental hearing muffs, as well as makes them much much much more comfortable for sleeping. EP5s come in 3 sizes—small, medium, and large—with mediumship fitting most adults.

Customer Ratings & Reviews
Loud neighbors? Work nights? Buy em!
The surefire ep5 was a lifesaver for me when I started working the night shift. I couldn't be mad at the world for enjoying their sunny day while I had to sleep to rest for my next graveyard shift. These did an excellent job of reducing all the loud noises but still allowing me to be able to hear my alarm clock without any issues. Now that I work in the day time, it has helped when my neighbors decide to be extra loud.
Fantastic Protection For Noise
These little honeys are a must for training up folks with firearms. Typically someone new to firearms have three things making them nervous, the noise of the weapon, target acquisition, and control of the firearm. These Surefire ep5 sonic defenders max plugs remove one of those obstacles famously. They are not comfortable enough to sleep in, but they are great for a day of shooting and yard work. I wore them at a Here Come The Mummies concert and enjoyed the front row a lot more since my ears weren't ringing when I got out of there. They store a lot easier than headphones and are easily transported. I keep a pair in the car, house, and gun bag, so I am never without protection.
Fit perfect! Cancel gun noise amazingly!
Bought the surefire ep5 for my 10 yr old. Fit her perfectly. She still wears noise canceling headphones over the top of them, but that’s because I’m overly cautious. She can’t hear a thing when she has these on either the headphones.
A unique concept executed perfectly. NOTHING else like this on the market!
Great concept. I leave the surefire ep5 sonic defenders in my ears all the time on hunts, but don't press them in full so I can hear the quietest sounds. Then if I'm ready for a shot, I just push them in further. They're a bit fiddly to put on at the beginning of the day, but it's worth it as they are so comfortable you'll forget you're wearing them. They also muffle gunshots very well, though I'd still double up on protection with muffs on top of these if you are shooting a lot of shots. After using these, I can't imagine going without hearing protection on hunts, or lugging around bulky earmuff style protectors, or paying hundreds for electronic amplifying protectors.
KEEP YOUR HEARING, YOU WONT GET IT BACK!
I work security and work a lot of overtime in vegas on the strip, and this is a must-have for the clubs I work at. Highly,highly recommend the surefire ep5 for everyone. It keeps you enjoying the music but stops you from having a ringing and future damage to your hearing. Buy this asap. Excellent product!
Surefire EP5 sonic defenders max are comfortable
Super comfy, easy to install and remove, comes with lanyard you can attach, really work well for rifle and pistol. Packaging says will last 6 months or until the rubber hardens. Ordering a pair for the wife after she tried them. SOOO much better than foam plugs hands down!!
Surefire ep5 is Amazingly Effective!
I was very skeptical about these but added them to order on impulse, and I'm glad I did. You have to realize, as others have noted, that they are light-weight, fit in the ear, and can't compete with the best over-the-ear "cans." That being said, I use them all the time now and love them. They are comfortable, I can hear the typical conversation with them, and they significantly reduce muzzle pressure. Note: I've tried similar "two flanges" buds that do NOT work nearly as well, basically about like putting a wad of cotton or sticking your fingers in your ear. Don't risk you hearing with them! But these "three flanges" models work well. Fit is everything, so don't be afraid to try different sizes. Medium seems to fit me well. They are not adequate for magnum rifles, and a powerful handgun will leave your ears ringing, but for my 9mm and similar guns, even in the competition, they are fantastic. They are highly recommended. Always respect their limitations. Your hearing depends on it.
Portable peace and quiet
I once slept quite soundly with these Surefire EP5 in my ears even as someone in the same room snored at the volume, seemingly, of an airplane. It's kind of hard getting them inside the ears correctly, but once you do, you will find peace and quiet. I extremely suggest these. Just be cautious; putting things into and pulling things out of the ears can damage the ear canals, so be sensitive with them. Don't be ripping these out of your ears abruptly.
