Basslet lets you wear your bass on your wrist
Basslet is yet another exciting piece of tech that has been crowd funded on Kickstarter. This invention is a neat little subwoofer that you can wear on your wrist.
You could be walking around with it on your arm, your very watch sized subwoofer. It is being manufactured by Lofelt and costs between $112 and $158.
It is estimated to go on sale by December this year, right in time for Christmas most likely. Subwoofers are huge in clubs so that the bass can be felt. These large subwoofers are vibrating big spaces of air. With another wearable bass tech the Subpacs, size is important too.
Subpacs are large and connects directly to your back, vibrating throughout your entire upper body. The German, Berlin based company behind Basslet known as Lofelt have focused on a single point of contact for transferring bass into your body.
How it works…
The Basslet is completely quiet to anyone else but you. It vibrates on your wrist and can differentiate between differing low-end frequencies.
The subwoofer is designed to give you full bass response across a wide range of frequencies – 10-250 Hz. Over half of the unit is dedicated to the motor itself, and the rest of the space is for a battery that boasts 6+ hours of play time at maximum volume.
The two founders behind the Basslet concept both have impressive resumes, having come from companies like Native Instruments and Ableton.
These two have been working on launching Basslet for three years already. They have manufacturing lined up and took to Kickstarter to salvage the funds.
It seems that they are going to be pretty successful with this Basslet endeavour since they raised an impressive €599,950 with the help of three thousand seven hundred and twenty backers.
I’m obsessed by bass. When I tried the Basslet my first thought was “hello?!” – feeling that connection through something so small is really exciting! – DBrigde, Exit Records
It’s just so intense. You wouldn’t think the Basslet would be able to match the same pace and intensity of your music. But it does. – Stefan Zilch, Spotify
