    These work great alright for the right application. I’ve been using them for about two years now and as mentioned in the other reviews, great for tactical applications, and decent for motorcycling. For plain open range they’re great. For CQC/tactical applications it’s not quite perfect but the best I’ve used so far. I’ve also used Peltor SWAT Tac but found that the stereo noise amplifier at low levels didn’t work as I’d like it. During training evolutions, I often heard noise coming from one direction that were in fact coming from another, very bad. This never hapens with the EP3s as they are not amplified. They’ don’t offer as much dB protection and firing in closed quarters will leave your head buzzing. But I’d rather have buzzing ears after the fact than not hearing someone coming from around a corner. A quick removal of the “Hocks Noise Braker filter” also allows the inserting of generic sound tubes and makes for a solid comms ear piece. I must be on my fifth or sixth set now (simply because I lose them) and will continue to use them until something better comes along.
    P.S. If you wonder what size to order, go for the medium. We purchased all three sizes to outfit our team (16) and all but one (large) use the mediums.

    Got these in the mail today and WOW! Little background: I work for the railroad and am no stranger to earplugs. My company supplies the cheapo earplugs, from foamies to soft rubber plugs, to the soft rubber plugs w/ flanges. None of which are all that great. Foamies get nasty after pulling them in and out a few times (especially with dirty hands). The rubber ones seem to create an uncomfortable pressure in your ear and require messing with them a bit to get them comfortable. Typically when you do get them in your ear without the extra pressure, you don’t have proper seal for protection, and often can’t get an even seal. Maybe its just me, but those issues really bother me, and I end up only wearing them when I absolutely have to.

    I stumbled across the EarPro EP3’s last week online. Read a few reviews (including reviews on Amazon, my “Goto” for consumer reviews!) and decided to buy them. So far I am super happy about this purchase… only a couple hours in! Yes, hard to give an accurate review this early but I was so impressed I wanted to write a first impressions review!

    So first off, they came in a nice clean package. As always, great, fast shipping! Inside the retail package the earplugs were encapsulated in a clear, cheapy plastic case. Not sure if the case was meant for long term or not, but I’ll definitely be using it to keep these in until I find something better. Per one reviewers suggestion, I went with the medium size plugs (that and Amazon didn’t have “small” size for sale when I looked). In my experience with audio devices I find I use small size plugs (2 sets of Shure in-ear headphones, Skullcandy headphones, Jawbone 2 & Jawbone Prime earpieces). I was skeptic, but I was very pleased when I found they fit my ears. These are SO comfortable I can see wearing them for long periods of time. Looking forward to this weekend when I take out my new rifle & really test these earpieces out!

    First impressions: I will totally recommend these to friends. Infact I will most likely be taking these to work to show them to the bosses and the safety team to see if we can start ordering for all our employees! IMO the best PPE (personal protective equipment) is the stuff you’ll USE! I bought these to use when I go shooting, but think I’ll be taking these to work with me too.
