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 now on DJTT’s store (
$399 now $349 in the DJTT store)
SubPac’s wearable bass monitoring system has already been through two generations prior – 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 – and now we know why.
The Subpac M2 has all new materials (“vibrotactile membranes”) 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 “optimized tactile transducers for improved accuracy and energy efficiency” – hopefully allowing an even longer charge for the built-in Li-ion battery, which is estimated at 6+ hours for a full charge.
There’s also been some improvement to the control box, which on the M1 model was a bit awkward – 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 it’s still only just over five pounds, very reasonable.
We’re excited to see and feel it for ourselves – 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 we’re excited to have some of the first. Preorders are $20 cheaper than normal pricing, and are first come/first ship.
