Our best-selling white noise machine now comes as a portable sound machine!

The Hushh is from Marpac, makers of the beloved Dohm-DS All-Natural White Noise Sound Machine. Hushh is a portable electronic sound machine designed to help baby fall asleep and stay asleep anywhere.  The Hushh cradles your baby in soothing sound to create a comforting, consistent sound environment for sleep.  

This compact portable unit comes with 3 sound options: choose from bright white noise, deep white noise, or gentle surf and a wide volume range. Hushh is powered by a lithium ion battery and recharges from a micro-usb cord (included). Throughout night time or naptime, it masks disruptive noises to promote longer, more restful sleep cycles.  It runs continuously without a timer, and has an on/off button.

We've tested The Hushh to run for approx 12 hours continuously on battery power, when played on medium volume and without the nightlight. For more info, see battery info below. Hushh never needs batteries, so there is none of the on-going cost you get with all other portable white noise machines, shushers or other sound boxes.

And the continuous play means you can turn Hushh on at bedtime, and it will help calm and resettle your baby or child all through the night. No timers or need to reset, just lovely calming white noise all night.

If you are using this at home, we recommend choosing a plug-in model such as the Dohm or Whish.  This model is not designed to be used continuously plugged in as that will in time damage the rechargeable battery.

Please note: if you have previously owned a Hushh, this newer version is quieter than previous models.

How does the Rohm compare to the Hushh?

  • Hushh has a tiny amber light on the side, which the Rohm does not have
  • Hushh has a plastic loop which you can attach to the buggy or side of the cot, whereas the Rohm has a little tie instead
  • All other features and functions are the same

Volume info

The Hushh has a wide volume range, giving you a lot of flexibility in terms of how loud you play it and where you use it.  Most customers find low to medium volume quite sufficient and this will also mean that the charge lasts for longer as the higher the volume, the shorter the battery time.

We do not recommend having the Hushh close to your baby on maximum volume as it is very loud.  It is different to the Baby Shusher for example, which is designed for use close to baby and operates for a limited time rather than continuously. The maximum volume would be suitable if you are using the Hushh plugged in across the room from your baby and only for short periods. If you're comparing the latest version of the Hushh to a previously purchased one you may notice that the 2019 Marpac Hushh has a lower maximum volume setting compared with older versions, however this is still quite loud and our recommendation is the same.

Battery power information:

The Hushh has an internal rechargeable battery which means you never need to replace batteries or worry about your child opening the machine and playing with batteries. The battery is charged using the USB cable supplied with your unit.

The battery can last all night, depending on a number of factors:

You will get the best battery life from your Hushh when it is used on medium volume without the nightlight and is expected to last 12 hours of continuous noise.

Basically the lower the volume played at, the longer your Hushh battery will last (and considerably longer when the light is not used).

The 'Bright White' (middlesound) has been shown to have the best battery time.

We recommend charging with a good quality charger, such as the good quality chargers supplied with a phone or a Balkin brand charger. Cheap phone chargers take much longer to charge and may not fully charge your Hushh.

The nightlight function and battery life

  • Hushh has a very small amber nightlight. If you are using battery power, use of the nightlight, particularly if also using at high volume, will cut the battery life down significantly.
  • Used with maximum volume and the nightlight, the Hushh battery will last less than 5 hours
  • When used on maximum volume without the light, you can expect around 10 hours
  • Volume also has a significant impact on battery life.

Please note that Marpac is now rebranding its products as Yogasleep and transitioning to new packaging under the Yogasleep brand. Marpac has been creating sleep-savings products since 1962 and will be continuing this proud tradition under the Yogasleep brand.

Rating Not good quality

By Charlotte from Auckland on 8 December 2019

I bought two of these for my similar aged kids. After 6 months they started to turn on and off on their own & required plug in to use...and after 12 months they are nearly unusable. Both units have done the same.

Rating Fantastic

By Rebecca from Palmerston North on 27 July 2019

Love our Marpac Hushh. Love that it is portable. So easy to use in the car, pram or even on walks in the carrier. Good choice of 3 sounds and different volumes. Definitely recommend!

Rating Great Product

By Jaye from Brisbane, Australia on 15 July 2019

I bought this product 2 years and 2 months ago. It has been used every day for 10+ hours (plugged into and out of power) since then and has only just run out of batteries (no longer works now, even when plugged in). This seems to be great longevity. It is real piece of mind to know my kids have white noise even when there is no electricity. The three modes and different volume settings allow it to cater to different needs and it's size is wonderful. I have just purchased another one and would recommend this product (the benefits outweigh the cost for me).

Rating So relaxing

By Michelle from Wellington on 28 May 2019

We have just started using the Hushh after using an app on a tablet on a chair, which would cut out occasionally! The sounds on this are so much nicer. We go for the bright white noise as we find it the most calming for sleep. We chose the Hushh due to its portability as we are planning a short holiday soon and want to create a familiar environment for our little one. I did wonder if the amber light would be too bright but it isn’t at all and we only switch on very rarely. I love the sound so much I would love to buy another so we can have one in our room, too!

Rating Love it

By Rebecca from Palmerston North on 8 May 2019

It’s been great so far! Battery lasts really well and I love that it’s portable, so easy to take in the stroller or car. It’s also really helped when putting her down to sleep at someone else’s house as she has something familiar. Definitely recommend

Rating Awesome little sleep aide

By Laura from Auckland on 28 March 2019

Was recommended to get this particular white noise machine has it has been so handy and great for bubba. We have it on all night (on the lowest volume), battery is amazing, it helps baby (and is!) sleep at night. It’s so small, light and portable that it’s so great to travel overseas with. Definitely worth the purchase!

Rating Great overnight use

By April from Auckland on 28 March 2019

We love this product as we wanted something we could charge instead of going through batteries. It lasts all night and we can easily attach it to the stroller on walks. It even helps me sleep better when there’s a party going on next door or a barking dog in the neighbourhood!

Rating Instant calm

By Kirsty from Wellington on 28 March 2019

After struggling for hours on end for many months when trying to settle our wee one this little gem was a life safer! The first time I turned it on, my crying, overtired baby instantly stopped and closed her eyes! Since then we have continued to use white noise and it has helped in setting up a sleep routine, which in turn has given us back our sleep! Also love that it allows us to continue 'living' our daily lives, without having to tip toe around while baby naps, as it drowns out any background noise. Highly recommend!

Rating A great buy

By Janet from Wellington on 17 March 2019

Bought this for our 2nd child after having had the Aden & Anais Star with our first born all her life. This is far superior - the white noise is soft, and there’s a lot of control over the volume. The waves are what we use and as baby is still in with us, I can vouch for how nice the waves sound and you barely notice the machine. Now considering buying a 2nd so that we can bin the Star!

Rating Disappointing

By Hannah from Auckland on 10 February 2019

Not sure if we have a faulty handset or if all are so “quirky” but ours only turns on sometimes if charging and then turns on by itself if it’s plugged in to charge but the power is off. However the most disappointing thing is the battery life. Ours doesn’t last the night and cuts out suddenly waking our son up. For the price paid I would’ve expected something that could last overnight. (Ours lasts maybe 10 hours).

ANSWER - The Sleep Store
Hi Hannah. Sorry your Hushh isn't working the way it should, this isn't normal and it sounds like it is faulty. Please contact us at returns@thesleepstore.co.nz and we will organise a replacement one.

Some Marpac Reviews:

(10.26.12 walmart.com review)

Best item ever for a new baby — at least for the parents. This will put a baby to sleep in short order. This is our second Sound Conditioner in two months because the first one did such a fantastic job. The hospital should offer these with every delivery — gets the baby to sleep & lets Mom & Dad get some much needed sleep. Wish we would have had them when our kids were little — kids that are now receiving these as gifts. Love it!

This sound machine is exactly what I was hoping for. No lullabies, no forest sounds, no 10 minute shut off — just plain old, consistent background noise. I actually bought it for my baby.

I have a new baby as well as a 2 1/2 year old and it was getting really annoying trying to shush my toddler and anyone else in the house when the baby was napping or sleeping. Baby was a light sleeper and would wake easily when my toddler was running around, playing or laughing and such. This sound machine totally blocks out the house noises so my baby can sleep comfortably and everyone else in the house can talk, play, make noise without worry.

I love love love it! My baby sleeps through the night now ever since I put it in her room the first night! It is a life saver! I would highly recommend it to anyone who has a baby that is having problems sleeping through the night!!

Happy Mom 112

I have a two-year-old and a six-month old. Each one has this product in their room. It’s amazing because it blocks out all other noise, including middle of the night crying sessions! I will even take this with me on vacation. A must buy for all moms!!!

Anyway, a friend recommended the Dohm/Marpac Sound Conditioner. I was skeptical.
Let me tell you, I have had it for one week now, and have been getting the best sleep of my life. It provides the perfect type of white noise to cover up any annoying noises that may have kept you from enjoying a full night's rest.

(amazon 5.28.13)

I was a bit skeptical about this device at first but after using it for a year or so, I have become a believer. The noise is neutral and constant. The only part I dont like is turning it off in the morning... it sounds so... quiet! So, if you are looking for a no frills noise making machine, this is a solid and functional option.

(2.14.13 amazon)

We were a little skeptical since our environment was more noise polluted than theirs, but I cant even explain how much this little machine improved our quality of life. We ended up staying in our lovely apartment and becoming good friends with the owners of the bar. ALL THANKS to this machine. If this little thing can block out the loud noises of New York city, Im completely confident to say it can work anywhere. Get one!

(amazon 1.24.13)

I bought this for travel and was initially skeptical, but I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of this product. It works very well, better than any other noise machine I've had. I like the ability to change the sound and I like the compactness for travel - it's my new and permanent companion. I highly recommend.

(amazon, 9.27.14)

I'm one of those people who needs a fan/white noise to go to sleep, and I was a little skeptical about this machine. What could it do that my current fan or a white noise app couldn't? Well, I'm not sure why, maybe it's psychological, but this thing lulls me to sleep much faster and keeps me knocked out all night.

(amazon, 8.31.14)

...Love the sound - doesn't sound like a radio station off the air like the one I used before.

...I would have died from sleep deprivation if it were not for my sound machines; I sleep between two sound machines.
