Hush smart earplugs connect to smartphone to mask noise, allow alarms

Hush Technology, Inc. said it has launched its first product, smart earplugs that help people sleep in noisy environments.

By combining a sound machine into earplugs, Hush drowns out disturbing noises and lulls users asleep with soothing sounds such as white noise, waterfall, or rain.

In order to still hear notifications that are needed, such as an alarm clock or an emergency phone call, Hush connects wirelessly to smartphones through Bluetooth® so users can select through the Hush app what notifications they allow to disturb them.

Hush Technology, Inc. is a privately held company based in San Diego, California.
