Well, if you don't want to spend a lot, you could get a 50 pack of MAX ear plugs (rated NRR 33) from Dillon Precision. If you want earmuffs and don't want to spend a lot, get yourself a Peltor Ultimate 10 headset. If you rally want to spend some money, get yourself some Pro Ears electronic earmuffs. Personally, I use both the MAX ear plugs with a set of Pro Ears electronic earmuffs. The best protection but I can still hear other people when they talk to me. USPC40

I really like my Peltor Tactical 6-S. Great protection and I can hear conversations (near and far) loud and clear. Some prefer the regular headband, but I have no problem with the behind the neck wire set up. Here's a pic of me with the Peltor Tactical 6.

OT: No matter how good the sound suppression, sound is still transmitted thru your bones. I took a hearing test awhile back, and the audiologist could tell that I was a shooter, and whether I was a right or left hand shooter. If you shoot those super loud magnums indoors, the audiologist recommends that you stand outside when not actually shooting in order to protect your hearing.
