One of the selling points of deep, booming bass is the experience it offers not just in terms of sound, but how you feel it physically, as well. If you love bass you probably agree that cranking it up high enough to feel its effects is one of the best parts.
What if there was a way to feel it closer to your body, a way to completely change every audio experience you have? Imagine if you could feel the deep pounding of great music, the pulsating explosions happening in a movie, and much more.
That’s the idea behind BassMe, a wearable subwoofer that rests on your chest.
What Is the BassMe Wearable Subwoofer?
BassMe is worn over the right shoulder and provides tactile feedback, which means you can feel the bass “in your core.”
After first hearing the phrase “wearable subwoofer” my mind drifts to large cabinets. You know, the type you might find accompanying a home stereo system. But BassMe is, unsurprisingly, much smaller and convenient.
It’s essentially a shoulder-worn strap that extends over the upper chest. It provides a tactile sensation that you feel within your core.
BassMe connects to a headset via Bluetooth and syncs up to provide local bass. The developers actually claim that the experience is so effective, most users end up turning down their volume as a result.
BassMe can be used for music, movies and even games. Imagine feeling your digital experiences rather than just seeing or hearing!
It’s not meant for any one activity in particular. Instead, BassMe immerses you in whatever entertainment you want, be it music, movies, or even games. It’s also fully compatible with any headset or audio source including PC, game consoles, tablets, home cinema and more. You can connect the subwoofer using wireless Bluetooth or a standard audio cable.
BassMe does run on a rechargeable battery which should last about six hours on a single charge.
Additional specs include:
- Micro-B USB and 3.5mm Audio Jack
- Bluetooth Range: 9 meters
- Takes 3 hours to charge with 6 hours of use
- Plug and play
Sounds badass, right?
Where Can I Get One?
As you can see, there are many different applications for the BassMe wearable subwoofer.
Studio Duroy, the company behind BassMe, have launched a Kickstarter campaign to help raise funds for the project. Currently, the campaign has successfully raised over $40,00 well beyond the initial goal of $11K.
If all goes according to plan, the first units will ship to early backers sometime in November 2019. BassMe should be available to purchase through retail for everyone else shortly after.
This thing sounds awesome and could really change the way we experience modern entertainment. Let’s hope everything does pan out!
