    Wearable Subwoofer?

    Discuss.

    It looks like a stupid gaudy niche gaming product aimed at "professional gamers", but I've seen several audio production centric reviews.

    Idiotic? The future of audio production? Leaning towards the former here, but some might like it.

    This is the givaway line in the review:

    That said, if you’re trying to produce kick-heavy music like hip-hop or EDM primarily on headphones, then I reckon the M2X’s low-end extension and response speed are easily enough to justify its cost.

    I could see that being fun while gaming with headphones on. But not for $300

    I don't think anyone making "thicc beatz" uses garage band when a cracked version of Pro-tools and shit like that is a torrent away. Although Logic and Reason are probably more popular for all synth stuff.

    I mean, clearly I know nothing about producing thicc beats, Garrett.

    It's legit, my buddy has one who produces hip hop. Best situation for it is being able to work with low frequencies and not bothering neighbors or family with a subwoofer. It also doesn't deal with the acoustics with the room so it can have a more proper response due to how low end frequencies work in small rooms.

    It's pretty much a gimmick for anything besides tracking bass player with just a DI so they can "feel" it.
