The physical experience of a subwoofer in your car, at home, in a theater, or at a live music event, is that your entire body feels the lower frequencies in the music. An aural experience becomes tactile, like the scent and taste of your food combining to provide a richer experience than either one alone could. The Basslet, on the other hand, vibrates your wrist from your iPhone, providing you with the underwhelming experience of your wrist vibrating. It’s almost as if…. drumroll… they thought of the name first.
There’s only one way you could use the Basslet to subwoofer your body, and that would be to shove it up your ass. You won’t be surprised to learn that there’s already a product that does this very thing. (It could very well be “not safe for work”, so I’ll just put the link here.) Sadly, it’s not called The Buttwoofer.
