I use Howard Leight Impact Sport audio muffs; I got them from Walmart for 40 or 50.

I like the audios so that I can hear anyone moving around near to me, and this brand has worked well for over a year's useage.

Only issue is when shooting AR15, little bulky when trying to cheek rest on stock, it moves the one a little, so I also use ear plugs to make up the little bit of noise from that

But for pistol for the price they can't hardly be beat

First let me say I wear a hearing aid from years of wearing only ear muffs. I now wear dual hearing protection to protect the one good ear remaining. I primarily shoot long range Highpower rifle competitions so the noise factor is pretty high.
I use a set of custom molded ear plugs available through any of the big box sporting goods stores and a set of electronic ear muffs to hear range commands.
Protect those eyes and ears as much as you can as we only get one set of each.

Howard Leight Impact Pro. Indoors they are sufficient next to any caliber shooter. Outdoors, the Sport are great.

I agree, I have also started using both ear plugs as well as over the ear , not only with outside rifle but also indoor pistol range too

A bit off topic:

My mind was wandering while reading this thread and I remembered seeing a you tube video of some kid in the Philippines using bullets for ear plugs :)

I use the electronic Champion muffs I got at Wal-Mart for $25. They're not bad. They are good on battery life. I can hear softer noise and talking when they're not blocking out gun reports. I've never used a good and pricy set of electronic muffs for comparison. I do double up with foam plugs when shooting magnums or indoors.

Got the Leight sport for like 40~$ the pros block sound better but are way bigger so for aiming I figured I'd try these first as I'll probably have a few in no time for the gear pile

Another vote for the Howard Leight Impact Sport electronic hearing protection, work great for IDPA where you need to hear the SO giving you commands.
