Have you ever been in a movie theater when the soundtrack swells and felt the bass literally pounding through your body?
Sound can be a profoundly moving experience, especially when paired with physical sensation. It’s also a great way to “feel out” a story, theme, or narrative, which is why professional sound studios often have physical sound systems built into their chairs so that audio engineers can literally feel the music.
SubPac technology converts sound waves into high fidelity vibrations so that you can feel the music while gaming, watching movies, or just jamming to the new P!nk album.
The SubPac M2 X is wearable — it just looks like a backpack — and is the latest release from SubPac. (Mashable writer Adario Strange detailed his experience with an earlier model here.) The updated version is slimmer than previous models, with a more ergonomic design.
The pack connects via 1/8-inch jack or Bluetooth so you can connect to virtually any sound system. Musicians can pair it to their instruments, dancers can pair it to their stereos, and gamers can pair to VR systems for a fully immersive experience. The SubPac is also a way for deaf and hard of hearing individuals to experience music in another way.
As one of the most wished for items on Amazon’s startup spotlight Launchpad, the SubPac is clearly resonating with people (no pun intended.) Reviewers are sharing their uses, from hosting a solo dance party to staying motivated while running. Everyone from sound engineers to casual gamers have found something to love about SubPac.
You can pick up the latest model of SubPac on Amazon for $349 (with free shipping.) Apparently you’ll never experience sound the same way again.
