Simple answer is “NO”..... Please wear hearing protection.
Ear plugs for shooting are recommended and have been evolving at a rapid pace, and today, you have the best selection of shooting ear plugs.
Foam ear plugs offer basic protection; they muffle all sounds around you, but high NRR foam ear plugs offer great ear protection and are inexpensive. Moldable ear plugs are similar: they provide passive protection, good comfort, and a small price tag.
Reusable Shooting Ear Plugs are the next step up. Many of these plugs feature acoustic filters, which provide sound blocking plus an acoustic filter that still lets safe sound through. Shooting ear plugs with acoustic filters are designed to let you hear safe sounds and maintain situational awareness while still protecting you from dangerous gunshot noises.
Finally, top-shelf solutions for hunting/shooting hearing protection include electronic ear plugs and professional lab full custom molded shooter's ear plugs, both of which provide vastly superior protection for truly serious hunters and shooters.
