Hush is supposed to be the first smart earplugs. They let you tune out the world, while not missing important things such as the alarm in the morning.
The Hush earplugs connect to an app, where you can choose what noise you’ll use to drown out the world. The app can also help find your Hush earplugs, and the Hush Case is used to recharge them. You can even recharge your phone using the Hush Case, a nice little bonus.
Two of the most popular methods of dealing with noise disturbances when you’re trying to sleep are earplugs and sound machines. However, earplugs have physical limitations in blocking out sound because even when your canal is completely sealed off, sound still gets through to the eardrum by conducting through your bones. Similarly, sound machines are limited in how much sound they can mask as they can only be played so loudly until they become a deterrent to sleep themselves.
Hush combines these two existing solutions by using the earplug as the first line of defense and then masking out any of the residual sound that gets through the earplug – enabling Hush to achieve a much greater level of noise isolation than is possible with either solution independently.
The big question is how many pairs of Hush you need to keep the world at bay. Pick away!
