I recommend electronic hearing protection so that you can hear what's going on around you etc. I use disposable plugs because I can't afford electronic ear pro.

I've been happy with my Howard Leight Impact Sport earmuffs, but I also use disposable foam plugs when shooting at my local indoor range. If shooting a match outdoors I just use the muffs and they are fine. Slim design makes them easy to keep with my other gear in my range bag. They run about $50.

I use Peltor - Tactical Pro. I like them better than other electronics I tried. A bit of cost but after 40 yrs. I thought I deserved it. I can hear RO's and my students, but the shots are muted a lot. Peltor has good non electronic too.

I use Howard Leight R-01526 Impact Sport Electronic Earmuff. They are available from Amazon for under $50. Good amplification. I can hear much better with these earphones than without. Like a very ugly hearing aid. Highly recommend them.

If you wanna get fancy, the electronic ones are fun...they take a little getting used to though, and can be a tad pricy...

I've had to wear hearing protection in every job I've had (tree service, steel fab, drilling and blasting...crazy rock drummer...) so I'm used to it but the yellow foamies are great, they've saved my hearing tremendously over the years, easy to carry, re-usable, cheap...

Use what is most comfortable to you, in the ear, over the ear, just as long as you have something on, you'll be fine...
