Additional Information


This product is designed for people with normal hearing only! The purpose of hearing protection is to reduce the impact of the sound and to reduce the potential for hearing loss. Hearing protection devices, including DefendEar products, do not eliminate sound. The user is responsible for determining whether the noise reduction provided by DefendEar products will provide adequate hearing protection based on the user’s unique medical history and exposure level. Your medical history, particularly any prior trauma to the ear or prior hearing loss, as well as the noise (decibel level and exposure time) the user will be exposed to should be considered prior to using DefendEar products. If you have any questions concerning the appropriate exposure levels or the level of hearing protection provided by DefendEar products, or if you have hearing loss or ear injuries, contact your local hearing professional before using.

Review and Rating


I use them primarily for grouse hunting. They work and fit great. My only complaint would be that they amplify the noise of walking through the woods enough that it can often overwhelm the sound of birds flushing or your hunting buddy talking to you.


I've had them for several years, they work great. The only issue is that they don't give enough protection when shooting .44 Magnum.


Biggest problem I have is putting the left one in, I am right handed and not very good with my left hand. I think the only ear buds that you could find to be more comfortable with, would be form fitted. I love the 3 volume settings and the
30 dB NRR


I’ve tried lots of semi custom earplugs/earbuds and these are the best to date. I’d buy them again, and recommend them to friends. As a competitive shooter, I Shoot tens of thousands of rounds a year, and these protect my hearing better than anything I’ve used.


The Battery Door is very fragile. If you install the battery incorrectly and close the door it breaks at the hinge. Westone offers no repair on this item. Unknown who will replace the battery door.
