Quick, Simple & Effective
The XP Reactor are now my "go to" hearing protection. As a "guntuber" and with a range on my own property, I never really know when I will be out slinging lead. Having a quick and simple hearing protection option like the XP Reactor series is PERFECT. The hearing protection they offer is more than enough for most applications. I don't have to worry about batteries or charging. I can just put them in and go. With the handy storage cylinder, I can keep a pair out on the range, in my truck and on my range bag so that I always have a pair handy.
I just wanted to thank you and I am pushing for all the teams in the area to use the reactor when on a call out.
Just wanted to thank you for making such a good product. I was wearing the reactor earplugs wow on a tactical call out with our swat team. The suspect began shooting at us multiple times. I returned fire and was able to neutralize the suspect. During the operation I was able to hear and communicate with all my team members. During the gun fire protection you made reduced the decimals so I have no issues when shots were being fired and we deployed multiple flash bang devices. I just wanted to thank you and I am pushing for all the teams in the area to use the reactor when on a call out.

They fit perfectly and they do exactly what they say they do
So I've been rocking these since December, about 7 months now. I used them for shooting and for motorcycle riding. The have been amazing! They fit perfectly and they do exactly what they say they do, block harmful noise. On the range they allow you to hear others which is important when calling "hot" or "cold", but then block out the loud nose spikes when shooting. Now on the motorcycle they block out the high pitched wind noise and the loud exhaust noise and allow you to hear your comms and upcoming cars. The carrying case is great too! I'm getting a second set now!
They are also comfortable for hours at a time.
Excellent product. I was skeptical at first, but was astonished when using them for the first time. You can hear regular conversations, but gunshot noise is greatly reduced. They are also comfortable for hours at a time.
These are AMAZING ear plugs.
These are AMAZING ear plugs. Got them during the promotion and the wait was WELL explained in advance and all along the way. When they showed up I went out and shot 9mm+P,556, and .308 Win with NO ISSUES at all even shot some 1/2#er Tannerite. My shooting partner and I could clearly hear each other talking even at distance and when the Guns went off there was ZERO problem with protection. I love these ear plugs EXCELLENT JOB AXIL. Will be getting a couple more pair they are well worth the money. Interesting how they work but they do exactly what they say they do. Never been more happy with a product.
Great product. Very comfortable.
Great product. Very comfortable. I could still hear the guys talking to me but it blocked out the deafening gun shots. I highly recommend these.
At the end of the day, they're great earpro.
When I first put them in, I was apprehensive. They didn't seem to attenuate much sound, but we weren't shooting at the time. Figured I'd give these a chance to prove they did what was advertised before making any judgement. Me and my buddy went to our shooting spot to zero our rifles, and holy crap, they worked on par, if not better than my SureFire EP3's, but a whole hell of a lot comfier. My EP3's can hurt after a while, but these didn't at all. In fact, they barely felt they were seated in my ear, which initially added to my apprehension. My AR15 has a VG6 Epsilon 5.56 muzzle device, and while it works great for recoil, it's louder than hell. My AR pistol has a PWS CQB 5.56 muzzle device on an 8" barrel, which is also stupid loud if you're not behind the trigger. Single impact sounds were attenuated nicely, and I didn't have to open a little port or remove earmuffs to be able to talk and hear properly when we weren't shooting. I got my set from one of those "free, pay shipping" deals they had going on early this year, but they're definitely worth their retail price. Like another review said, a hard case instead of a little fabric pouch would've been nice, but it is what it is. At the end of the day, they're great earpro.
Much better then the foam ones i have been using.
I have had a chance too use my new ear plugs at our local shooting range, and they work great! Much better then the foam ones i have been useing. They are comfortable and dampen the loud gun blast of my. 357 magnum.
My only complaint is that I would like to have a lanyard and a hard case for my ear plugs.
They don’t seem to make my ears sore like other kinds of ear protection do.
I have some and use them. You need to get them into your ear canal enough and seated, kinda like foam earplugs. They are comfortable and you can forget that you have them in until someone talks to you and then you notice things being muffled. They don’t seem to make my ears sore like other kinds of ear protection do.
Reduces total sounds at the inside range to very tolerable levels.
I got mine through the NRA special, and they work great. I have existing hearing loss, so I wear them inside my muffs, but that reduces total sounds at the inside range to very tolerable levels. And if I need to talk to the range officer, I can lift a muff, and hear well, without being exposed to nearby gunshots.
These are awesome for shooting,
I got these through the NRA promo. Took them out to the range and got them seated properly. The .22 was now quiet enough I didn't need additional protection, and could still hear the ping when hitting steel at 150 and 200 yards. While shooting the 9mm in a shipping container, I still needed additional protection as these alone weren't quite enough...but I didn't expect them to be. These are awesome for shooting, working in the garage (especially hammering or using the shop vac) and running the chainsaw. Very happy and will be ordering a pair for my wife. Well worth the wait.
the plugs worked great.
received my reactor ear plugs last week thank you. We shot 500 rounds of 12ga at clays yesterday and the plugs worked great. Takes a little getting used to because the report of the gun is clearer then usual, but noticed no ringing in the ears after a full day of shooting. My one gripe is they can be difficult to remove. With that being said you have a great product thanks for sending em out.
They work well!
They work well for talking when wearing them and for the noise of a .22. For larger calibers, i had to put the ear muffs over them.
They also work for barking dogs and people who talk loud.
I will try them with mowers, chainsaws and wood chippers next.
They are extremely comfortable under my electronic muffs and help cut out a lot of the extra noise
I got my Axil XP Reactor ear plugs last night. Today I am wearing them on the range for the first time. They are extremely comfortable under my electronic muffs and help cut out a lot of the extra noise that you get on an indoor range. I would recommend giving them a try.
So for that application they work perfect!
I bought these a while back. I shoot 10 meter olympic air rifles in my basement. I usually have the TV on in the background and in between shots I watch TV. I can hear it fine with them in and they protect my ears from the pop of my PCP air gun when I shoot. So for that application they work perfect! However, I tried them at the skeet range and they did not provide enough protection.
These fit nicely, seem well built and are easy to insert and remove.
First of all, to all the complainers about shipping, what a bunch of hoopla... Axil did a great job explaining the free offer and updating recipients ever step of the way. Thank you Axil. Second, these fit nicely, seem well built and are easy to insert and remove. I did some testing and cannot say for certain that they meet the advertised dB attenuation. My honest feeling is that they do not. While normal conversation was barely limited (~5dB, as advertised), louder percussion sounds were not, at least not at the level advertised. I would cautiously say about 15 dB at the most. So, I'll stick to my present plugs to use along with my muffs. Thanks anyway !
I can hear better with the Axil
I haven't fired any rounds with them yet, but I did compare them to regular foam plugs for the ability to hear a conversation. I can hear better with the Axil vs. foam plugs. If they block the noise like they are supposed to then it will be a win. Worth the $8.95 just to try.
I can’t wait to try them
Haven’t taken them out yet can’t wait to do so. Shipping did take a while but as I’m sure everyone knows the nra has hundreds of millions of subscribers an I’m sure axil wasn’t expecting the overwhelming orders they got so I give them credit I just got mine today an it’s 2/12/2020 an placed my order in early December first or second week but you know what they got here I can’t wait to try them out so I’m giving you a 5 star rating on all your positive comments in hopes they work great thanks axil
They are incredibly comfortable
I get why folks would be bugged about the length of time to receive them but the end product is actually a very good plug. It’s similar to the surefire ep3 I think it is. Whatever the one that allows sounds through. They are incredibly comfortable and I haven’t shot with them yet but they seem to work along the lines of equivalent plugs. The surefire plugs make my ears hurt after and hour or two but these fit much more comfortably. Gonna order one more pair at full price I like em that much. To each their own but I like it.
Excellent Ear Plugs work EXACTLY as advertised.
Excellent Ear Plugs work EXACTLY as advertised. Have shot 9mm, 556 and 308 Win with ZERO issues they work perfectly. I ordered them on the special said they would ship on Jan 15th got another email mine would ship soon on Jan. 25th they were here on Jan. 29th. Went out and. Tried them and they were worth the wait. Only complaint is if you are going to run a promo your products have to come out faster. I do MANY Promos for Archery due to being a Professional Archer for the last 25 years and fun products most specials ship within a couple weeks not months.
Works as advertised and much more comfortable than I would have thought!
Works as advertised and much more comfortable than I would have thought! The shipping time frame I was given was spot on and the one time I contacted customer support (Christmas Night) because I had a shipping question, my email was responded to the very next day, (yes the day after Christmas someone was replying to my email). I took the earplugs out to the range for almost 4 hours and they were perfect. I could talk to the shooters next to me without yelling at them on accident and the plugs were really comfortable. Calibers shot were 9mm, 45ACP. and 5.56. In short, the Shipping time and delivery date were 100% in line with the promised schedule, the things were worn for close to 4 hours without any issue, and they worked perfect! ZERO complaints here. Thanks Axil for coming through as promised on your FB advertisement, if these get lost or stolen I would 100% buy another set from yall again.

Great all-around ear pro
Great all-around ear pro. I wear mine mostly at indoor and outdoor firearms ranges. I like them because they remain comfortable during long days at the range and fit well under ear muffs if I need added protection. They also clean up easy when needed.
