    OK, safety and RSO hearing arguments aside, this is what I did once when I used to listen to my MP3 while out on the motorcycle.

    I went to an audiologist office; they make hearing aids. I had ear cananl molds made around my earbuds. They were siliconed in place and could be changed with a little patience and a thin sharp blade to get the silicone out.

    They cost me about $60.00 each if memory serves.

    Never tried them while shooting, but they are awesome otherwise.
    $1149 for a pair? I'm gonna spend that on a Les Baer 1911.

    Check these out.

    I use these to mow the lawn and other stuff. Really good insulation against outside noise. Never shot with them.

    Look in the phone book under "audiologist".
    I had a set of earplugs custom molded for riding my motorcycles.
    They can be set up for certain ear buds to snap in.
    However, there are two downsides. One, they can be pricy, I shopped around and paid $80. Some wanted $200 for the same thing. Second, if you move your jaw around, or clench your teeth, they seem to lose their seal.
    If money is no object, go to "Future Sonic" and get a custom molded set like the rock stars, and Nascar drivers have. Plan on $1200 for those.

    I've got a pair of in-ear Philips that do a really good job of keeping ambient noise out ie on an airplane. As others have stated however, at the range, you should probably focus on your primary reason for being there in the first place.

    I have a pair of Klipsch Custom 3 headphones but haven't taken out to the gun range yet. I think this year is the year to try them out.

    My usual pair are the Surefire Ear Pro EP4.

    I have done it with cheap in ear buds with my iPod with .40 and .45.It might not be advisable with .357 or bigger or a high power rifle but I think you would be safe with 9mm .38 .40 or .45.

    Look into some of the earbuds designed for autoracing / motorsport and or auto racing scanners. I us a profressional set of earmolds that are meant for in helmet installations. Some of the racing scanner outfits have some decent stuff.

    I know what you're thinking: "Did he fire six shots or only five?" "Is that a Smith & Wesson 686+ 7 shot or 627 8 shot?" "Does he have a concealed Sig P226 SCT and two spare mags?" You've got to ask yourself one question: "Do I feel lucky?" Well, do ya, punk?

    Good info. If I'm ever piloting a nuclear submarine, I will remove the earbuds.

    Secondly, if you can't safely handle a firearm with music on, what is going to happen if you have to use your firearm with people screaming, crying, dogs barking, and people running around you?

    I use "Marshmallows" ear plugs made by JVC. They mold to your ear and are great. I take my iPod to the range all the time.
