SUBPAC launches the X1

SUBPAC has launched the X1, the most powerful version of the company's tactile audio system so far.

SUBPAC's unique wearable tech gives audio creators "a deeper connection and understanding of their mix that is not possible with traditional speakers or headphones" which has made waves since its launch because of the way it transfers frequencies through high-fidelity vibrations to the body.

The X1 is the latest iteration of SUBPAC that features a software-driven, modular, wireless design that is aimed at creators as well as audio professionals and serious enthusiasts. If you've tried one, you'll know it's the closest you'll come to experiencing The Club at home without having to install a wall of speakers.
