I use these. They work well for me, though all of my shooting is done outside. I'm not sure how well they would work indoors, but I would probably err on the side of caution and double up with earplugs if I ever use an indoor range, regardless of the muffs I have.
Caldwell E-Max Low Profile Electronic Muffs
+1 on the Howard Leight Impact active headset... outstanding value at under $50. We have 4 of them and they're outstanding.
As for eyes... reasonable polycarbonite shooting glasses can be had for $10-$20 at any sporting goods store and there are a number of options that run into the hundreds of dollars. Pretty much anything is better than no eye protection, but something that's rated for shooting is always advised.
I typically use the disposable foam earplugs. They are cheap and usually more protective than muffs, and IMO, more comfortable---especially in hot weather. You can check the level of protection by looking at the DB (decibel) rating; this is required on all packaging of hearing protection. The higher the number, the better, but I would recommend 26 db or higher.
As for eye protection, most any pair of glasses will suffice----prescription, sunglasses or inexpensive safety glasses.
I used my regular prescription glasses and Howard Leight Quiet Band 2 ear plugs, $8.95 and they are nice. I usually shoot .40 and can't hear squat with them so I love them, plus they are easy to put on and take off. I cant wear ear muffs because they push my glasses into my skull too much and it hurts.

Yes, lots of 9V batteries and now AAA batteries. It works.
I'm sold on these 3M throw away plugs.

The great thing about using something like this is you can stash them everywhere. I have 'em in my rifle bag, my pistol bag. My go bag. I stuff a couple in the grip of my AR. I've never, ever been somewhere and not had earpro since I started using them.
