BassMe is an all-new personal, wearable subwoofer that promises to take your music, video games and movies to the next level of immersion.

BassMe has been developed by French startup company STUDIO-DUROY which was founded in 2017 by Alban Duroy, Raphaël Guichard and Guillaume Lannoy.

The exciting and innovative device certainly has the potential to shake things up when it is unveiled at CES 2019.

BassMe Studio-DuroyWhat you have here is a wearable subwoofer that will enable you to feel as well as hear your music, as well as audio from games and movies. Think of it as a rumble-pack for your body.

By positioning the BassMe on your chest, the device uses propulsion and vibrations triggered by sound waves. In doing so, the unit offers a new dimension to the listening experience by immersing you into music, cinema and video games.

You can “feel the groove” by connecting your BassMe via Bluetooth or a cable to an audio source; then slip on the BassMe by wearing a shoulder strap with the unit on your chest. The innovative technology will then amplify the low frequencies to enhance the feeling of immersion as you enjoy a movie or play a game.  Furthermore, thanks to its compact size, it can easily be carried so you can finally enjoy massive sound anywhere you go.

The first prototype was made in France and STUDIO-DUROY is already planning to sell the first devices in the beginning of 2019 with further plans to equip 240 premium or 4K movie theatres by 2023.

BassMe will also be available to consumers for 129€.
