Last week our friends at SubPac announced a brand new iteration of their wearable bass/sub bass monitoring system, the SubPac M2. The new version brings a significant overhaul both on the aesthetic and technical aspects of the design. Keep reading for the full details!

Product: SubPac M2
Manufacturer: Subpac (formerly Studiofeed)
Availability: Preorder (limited $379 pricing for preorders) now on DJTTâ€™s store
SubPacâ€™s wearable bass monitoring system has already been through two generations prior â€“ the M1 and the M1 Bluetooth, which brought wireless streaming to the unit. But for the last few months, the M1 has been completely unavailable â€“ and now we know why.
The Subpac M2 has all new materials (â€śvibrotactile membranesâ€ť) that are now ergonomically shaped to maximize the amount of body contact and comfort. While the M1 felt more like a backpack, the M2 will likely feel more like a piece of form-fitting armor.
The internals have seen an update as well, with new â€śoptimized tactile transducers for improved accuracy and energy efficiencyâ€ť â€“ hopefully allowing an even longer charge for the built-in Li-ion battery, which is estimated at 6+ hours for a full charge.
Thereâ€™s also been some improvement to the control box, which on the M1 model was a bit awkward â€“ the Subpac M2 control box is slimmer, with dedicated placement points on the unit and a flexible cable that attaches it to the main unit.
The whole thing comes in a bit heavier than its predecessors, but itâ€™s still only just over five pounds, very reasonable.
Weâ€™re excited to see and feel it for ourselves â€“ and the DJTT store is already taking preorders for the units, set to ship in mid-December 2015. These units are extremely limited (SubPacs have never been easy to get lots of stock of), but weâ€™re excited to have some of the first. Preorders are $20 cheaper than normal pricing, and are first come/first ship.
