Hearing protection

Right now I use the following 2 hearing protection devises and I am looking for something that does not have the issues I will note with each. Suggestions please?

Molded in the ear plugs: they are so good at blocking out sound that I can not hear anything and so when I am scoring a trap squad I can not hear the shooters call for a target. I get frustrated and they, rightfully so, get mad at me.

Electronic head phones with sound dampening capability: they work well at letting me hear normal conversation and shooters calling for targets but the gun stock moves them off my ear when shooting and renders them useless and a PITA.

Good night Chesty, wherever you are......

After trying everything, I really like the Sens Gard SG31. The NRA sells the same protector (ZEM) through their store. It doesn't interfere with shooting glasses like others have for me. To each his own...maybe an option for you? I can hear normal conversation along the firing line/loading benches. Sometimes I forget I have them on.
