What's best earmuffs for trap?

I'd guess they'd have to be pretty slim.

Googling finds some but the foam plugs have a higher NRR.

Thanks.

Custom molded ear plugs are the best ear muffs if you plan on sticking with it.

I shoot sporting clays and use the nice large either Peltor or Howard Leight electronic ones. Neither hit the stock and I can hear everything going on around me.

Except they're not good enough around jets - those folks wear some serious muffs; if you do not protect the mastoid area around your ear from the vibrations, that will hasten hearing loss.
