An electric rumble that started in the base of my skull is propelled forward, pulsing into my veins as frequencies are projected throughout my entire body. Goosebumps overwhelm every inch of my skin as an amused grin creeps across my face. Every nuanced note and each rhythmic rumble, from the smallest synths to blossoming batches of booming bass, encased the world around me.
With my eyes closed, I become the pulse of the dance floor. It’s only when they open again that I’m rudely reminded that I’m not marinating in the music and mayhem of Coachella’s Sahara tent, bouncing around a world class nightclub like Avalon in Hollywood or entrenched in Drum and Bass at Shambhala‘s Village; instead, I’m dancing by myself with my headphones on in the middle of my living room, gleefully rocking a high-tech vest that feels like it came right out of Tron, only it’s the the latest and greatest in high tech, wearable tactile bass systems.
Launching just this past October, the patent pending SubPac M2 is the latest and greatest in wearable tactile bass systems, gifting users a fully immersive, auditory experience that parallels the live experience on a grand scale while silencing the world around you. Featuring plug and play controls, a Bluetooth receiver, a high capacity rechargeable battery and a slimmer control box, the M2 is made for movement, allowing the wearer to dance the way they feel – and let me tell you, you’re about to feel some kind of way.
Currently used by industry leaders and international taste makers within the music industry, SubPac has more application than music creation, audio testing and pure enjoyment. SubPac’s technology was integrated in the Virtual Reality enhanced premiere of Jurassic World as well as the “Fractal” concept car designed by Amon Tobin. The brand also offers a 21st century approach to hearing lost, tinnitus and deafness, finding use at this year’s Rock in Rio festival in Brazil where the SubPac’s campaign granted the hearing impaired a boost of bass. While the human ear can only hear to down to a minimum of 20hz, the body can receive the rest as vibrations through your bones, and the SubPac can make you feel frequencies as low as 5hz – dishing out layers in favorite songs that you might not have known existed otherwise.
“We are on a mission to introduce the physical dimension of music and sound to the world. With the SubPac M2, we have created the most immersive wearable audio experience to date. Anyone can now experience audio the way the creator intended – full immersion, anywhere, anytime.”
– John Alexiou, SubPac CEO and co-founder
