Electronic ear plug recommendations?

I'm starting to seriously consider a set of noise canceling/suppressing ear plugs, but both for shooting and playing music.

I've never liked ear muffs, as I always wear glasses of some kind which rarely feel comfortable with muffs. Also, I do some cowboy action shooting and otherwise just enjoy brimmed hats, which again, don't work with muffs.

I also play guitar in a 7-piece band. Foamies and even re-usable plugs supposedly designed for music are either uncomfortable or cut out too many of the high frequencies I need to hear a balanced sound. I know I could get in-ear monitors, and I might.

But is there a set of electronic plugs that could do double duty? Some that would effectively suppress gunshots at the range and keep a balanced sound spectrum at rehearsal and gigs?

The Peltor TEP200 get lots of good reviews, but I don't need comms connections and some of the other stuff. And $375 is a lot of money for an experiment; not too much to preserve my hearing, but more than I want to spend unless it's a sure thing. Open to suggestions.

I have the Walkers Silencer BT. First pair broke pretty quick. They replaced in about 2 weeks including shipping. Second pair seems ok. Not quite as good as my Pro Ears Pro Mag, but pretty close. I need to use more to really judge how they are working.

I have a pair of Walker Razor in FDE for around $60.00 w/tax. Fine for pistol shooting but you may want to add plugs when shooting CF rifle.
