I'm looking for a nice, not to expensive ear plugs that allow me to ear regular conversation but at the same time would give me a good protection against gun blast. Any recommendations?!
I was just looking at the sport plugz xp3 and the look similar to your. They look good and I like the price. Do they give you good protection and how comfortable do they feel?dutchs said:the Surefire EP-4 Sonic Defender Plus system... I bought these and love them
Very comfortable, real nice they have the little handle so they are easy to get put as well and you can still hear talking. Great plugs! Wish they had them when I was working on aircraft in the Navy!!I was just looking at the sport plugz xp3 and the look similar to your. They look good and I like the price.

Hilarious, sounds exactly like what my daughter would do!Glock_Fanatic said:i loved the surefire sonic defenders, even used them when I rode my bike... until my daughter thought they were "cool" and played with them... now she cant remember where they are... hmmm go figure!
The Surefire sonic defenders are rated at 24db reduction and the others are rated at 25db reduction, technically the other ones are better but 1 db isn't much of a difference. However, hearing can never be regained, once it is gone its gone forever. Better safe than sorry. (i have hearing aids with a built in range setting, and i wear muffs over them)The lower number of dB give you less protection or the lower protect you more?
I can't remember? I always use them with the plugs in the holes. I am half deaf from Loud music and forgetting my Mickey Mouse ears working on airplanes anyway so I am probably not a good judge..The lower number of dB give you less protection or the lower protect you more?
Cool!! Good to know, thank you.akbluz said:savage07 - the higher number decibal rating - the better the noise reduction. For example the foam in-the-ear plugs are rated at around 27db. I use them and the standard ear muffs when shooting and using the chain saw. Believe me, use the best hearing protection you can - you'll thank yourself for it the rest of your life.
Medium fits most ears... If you have larger than normal ears get the large ones, if your ears are smaller get the small size. I guess you can ask family members and friends what there opinion is on the size of your ears.wnctroutbum said:How do you figure out what size u need?
