LAS VEGAS, Jan. 6, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- from ShowStoppers @ CES 2016 -- Today, Hush Technology, Inc. announced the launching of its first product, the world's first smart earplugs, at the 2016 Consumer Electronics Show (CES). Hush™ will begin shipments of the long awaited Kickstarter orders this month. The product was initially funded 6 times its original $100,000 goal on Kickstarter, raising almost $600,000 in the span of 40 days back in December 2015.

Hush Smart Earplugs help people sleep in noisy environments, whether it's a snoring spouse, loud neighbors, or whatever else might disturb sleep. By combining a sound machine into earplugs, Hush drowns out disturbing noises and lulls users asleep with soothing sounds such as white noise, waterfall, and 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.

"To bring a simple idea birthed out of a student's struggle to fall asleep in his noisy college apartment into a real consumer product has been an incredibly exhilarating experience," said Daniel Lee, CEO of Hush. "The best part is that the real excitement is just about to begin as releasing this first shipment will improve the lives of thousands of people around the world. We are providing a clean easy-to-use solution to noise, a fundamental deterrent to the core human need for sleep, so to begin to hear testimonies of how we've changed lives by doing so will be enormously fulfilling."

Hush Technology, Inc. is a privately held company based in San Diego, CA founded by three engineering students from UC San Diego.
