The advantage of most electronic muffs is you can actually amplify the normal sounds when no loud sounds are present, so that helps overcome the sound dampening of the plug. However, if you are on a very active range, the muffs sound will be 'switched off' when others are firing and they will act just like a pair of regular non-electronic muffs. With the addition of the plugs while switched off, it will make it tougher to hear. If there is no shooting going on, then it should be better.
EDIT TO ADD: The cheap electronic muffs at Harbor Freight and Academy (<$30 range) are very slow to switch back on after dampening, so there is a delay in the regaining of sound amplificaiton. With th higher-end muffs, the switching is much faster and you don't even realize they were switched off and on.
