It’s not the most convenient way to listen to music, considering you’ll have to strap on a backpack-like contraption. If you’re looking to enjoy your favorite tunes in ways you’ve never quite experienced, though, the SubPac M2 definitely delivers.
Designed to deliver bass sounds in a tactile manner, it’s a wearable woofer that dumps all those low audio frequencies across your back, allowing you to feel the music vibrating in your body. Whether it’s the boom of a kick drum, a punchy bassline, or the extremely low-frequency sounds of an 808, this thing will let you feel them like never before.
The Subpac M2 uses tactile transducers and vibrotactile membranes to recreate sound in physical form, all while sounding completely quiet, so you can turn up the bass without causing a ruckus. An ergonomic shape ensures it will feel perfectly comfortable during wear, while nano silver treatment guarantees it won’t develop bacteria and odor even if you wear it so much you end up sweating on the darn thing. It comes with a dedicated control box for setting the bass intensity (allows adjustment between 5 Hz and 130 kHz), apart from containing the connectors (one 3.5mm input and a 3.5mm headphones output).
Integrated Bluetooth allows you to stream music to the wearable wirelessly, while an onboard battery lets you use it for six hours straight on a single charge. It measures 17 x 12 x 1.5 inches and weighs five pounds.
Available now, the SubPac M2 is priced at £399.
