SureFire EP4 overview

  • 1Description

The medium, clear EP4 Sonic Defenders Plus Earplugs from SureFire provide an EPA Noise Reduction Rating (NRR) of 24dB, with pass-through triple-flanged stems. This flanged system is designed to fit individuals with larger ear canals, and can offer better fit and protection than the comparable EP3 Sonic Defenders double-flanged stem. The stems filter loud potentially harmful noises over 85db while allowing safe, lower-level sounds, such as conversations, to be heard. The attached filter caps can be inserted into the stems for full protection from all sound. They can be used as earpieces for compatible radio systems by removing the filters. With the filters removed, the earpieces will no longer protect against noise.

Made from a soft medical-grade hypoallergenic polymer, these hearing protectors are comfortable to wear all day. The EarLock design fits flush in the ear with 7 points of contact to keep them locked in place. It also allows them to be worn with helmets and masks, or while using a phone or over-the-ear headset. A detachable 26" polymer lanyard keeps them together and a carrying case is included.

    SureFire EP4 reviews

    EP4 Sonic Defenders Plus Earplugs (Medium, Clear, 1 Pair) is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 26.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works as promised Most of my photo shoots are of local bands in small clubs. Which means being up close to get good shots. And of course up close means LOUD. Standing in front of a PA speaker to get a good angle can be quite an experience. My old plugs helped, just not very much. When I first got them I was impressed with the way they fit. Very comfortable and without a lot of material hanging out of my ears. When I used them I and my ears were very happy. Being able to have conversations and still hear the music without the numbing effect was exactly what I was looking for. And I found it in this product. Wish I had them when I was playing in bands.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I no longer worry about the 'Big Bang'! Living in South Florida and a frequent indoor gun range user I find the earmuff hearing protectors a real pain in the heat index. I researched the in-the-ear type protectors and found numerous high marks for the Sonic Defenders Plus EP4's. Thinking I could use both, and when not shooting, remove the muffs still protecting me from other shooters. I shoot a combination of 9mm, 40 S&W and 45 ACP and when I use the EP4s with the stopper plugs installed, NO EAR MUFFS!! The 45 is right at the edge and if someone is using a larger bore hand gun or rifle the muffs go back on. They are comfortable and if I need to converse with someone I can still hear them. I highly recommend this product and am very happy with my purchase. Bob

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This Is the Pair You Want Take it from a Soldier and musician. These earplugs are practically worth their weight in gold. I've deployed twice with them, and I'm finally buying a replacement pair because they're just that good. I can get earplugs from Uncle Sam for free, but I'd prefer these, even though I have to pay for them. - I can wear them on C130's (which are dangerously loud), blackhawks, chinooks, or any other aircraft and still equalize my ear pressure with changing altitudes because of the vent hole in the center. - I can open and close the vent hole at will for additional sound isolation and protection from dust and moisture. - They fit better than a glove. These things have never come out unintentionally, never. Shake your head like a wet dog if you want. They aren't coming out. - The material is so soft and pliable; it kind of reminds me of what a gummy worm or gummy bear feels like. You might even forget they're in there. I have a couple of times.. - I'm a side-sleeper, and these are the only earplugs I've ever worn that are even remotely comfortable to sleep in. - They stand up tall to war-zone abuse. I'm finally replacing the pair I deployed with twice..

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for Riding and Working I use the EP4 Sonic Defenders in two situations. First is at work, in a data center. With the plugs open on the EP4s I can work in the data center with the server noise dramatically reduced and still have conversations with other people. The other time I use these is riding my Yamaha Majesty. With the plugs open the wind noise is reduced while still being able to hear sirens, etc. At a gathering place, with a lot of bikes running, just put the plugs in to reduce noise even more. The EP4 Medium fits my ear well. In fact it is the only design that I can keep in my ear under a helmet! Lightweight, easy to clean, inexpensive to replace, box to keep them in, and perfect for these uses. You can also plug the hollow tube style sound cords into them. On the down side, don't expect them to handle really high levels of noise. When I am on my commercial mower I still have to use headband style ear protection, as these do not reduce noise enough. These are a great item for the price and if used in the correct situation.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good purchase! I am really glad I spent the extra money for these ear plugs!.. I work where it is required to wear earrings protection and the soft roll up ones drove me nuts. Another reason I bought these were to use while hunting or target practice. The soft rubber material that they are made of feels great in the ear and doesn't rub my ears raw like some other brands. One really nice thing about the size is that I can wear them with a helmet on with out them hitting the sides or falling out. Over all a great product and would recommend them to anyone that wants to protect their ears from high levels of noise.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from How much is your hearing worth to you? Super comfortable, effective and actually do what they say. I used to use the cheap foam earplugs for shooting, riding my motorcycle and mowing the lawn. They would invariably fall out or become uncomfortable and just never seemed to work very well. You would also completely muffle all sounds. The SureFire EP4's are great in that they are very comfortable, yet still allow you to hear a lot of the lower dB sounds. Granted you are wearing ear plugs so the sound is not perfect but they do a great job. I would recommend these without hesitation!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quite pleased... I'm in the armed forces and work as a crew chief in aviation. I've used these earplugs around diesel generators (2k-10k) as well as around aviation assets which normally require double hearing protection. However I've yet to use these with two of my favorite hobbies (shooting and playing drums) Compared to the yellow 'foamies' the EP4 Sonic Defenders really help reduce the intensity of the heavier (muddy) low frequencies, as well as blocking some of the painful higher frequencies while still safely allowing conversational tones to pass (with ports open). And that is something strongly desired in my line of work. The pros I would list as: -Affordable -Fairly easy to use -Easy to clean -Can wear headsets or helmets in addition to (without painfully smashing into your inner ear) Cons: -Ports can be awkward to close while wearing -Require minor adjustments when worn for long periods -Storage container they are packaged with isn't designed for long term/rugged use On a personal note I would prefer a size small, but they do not seem to be available in this model (only the EP3s). I am 5'5 with larger than average ears, my ear canal(bowl) seems to be right on the borderline on the size recommended. If you don't absolutely need a triple flange plug (for shorter exposures or lower sound levels) I would advise the EP3s as the EP4s (on smaller ears) can cause discomfort or a 'fatigue' like feeling on the cartilage after 20-25 minutes of so.. Eight years in the military (including deployments) and a many more years attending concerts and playing shows and I still have sensitive hearing from repeated use of ear protection. Though I can't say how the EP4s will respond to other uses/industries I have and do recommend this product to others.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from From Behind the Booth The EP4's are extremely friendly color coded to let you know which piece goes where. Once you get that solved, prepare to not be bothered by loud booth monitors or overpowering systems. You can still hear conversational level speech just fine, which is absolutely wonderful. It does a great job at filtering or muffling out those excessively high frequencies or vibrations. Recommended.
