There are two categories of hearing protection for shooting; passive and active. Within each category there are two ranges of effectiveness which happen to coincide with price ranges; cheap and expensive. For discussion purposes I will arbitrarily put the cut-off point at $100. I, too, need to be able to converse at the range and find that active (electronic) hearing protectors suit my needs best.
While I really like the (expensive) Sordin's, I can't afford them. I was not impressed with the sub-$100 active protectors until I tried a pair of Peltor SportTac's. The difference was that these were fitted with the gel ear seals. You have to get these separately (some vendors will sell them, iShot-inc.com even installed them for me). My $95 hearing protectors now cost $130 but work much, much better. So much better that my 18 year old son lobbied for his own set. (Better a birthday gift to him than to constantly have to hunt mine up.)
Now these protectors have crossed my arbitrary price class boundary into the expensive category. But they are about $100 less than the Sordin's, and work about as well.
Standard disclaimer - I am just a satisfied customer and not an employee of iShot or Peltor.

I have a set of Pro Ears, Dimension 1 that I bought a few years ago that have seen a ton of use and are great.
