For all the audiophiles out there, Basslet by Lofelt is the watch-size subwoofer that delivers bass straight to your body for a powerful music experience that headphones alone cannot provide. As they say, “Music is meant to be felt – not just heard. ”
Basslet uses unique Haptic technology to feel music. For the noobs, Haptic technology uses motion and vibration to create different sensations which are detected by our sense of touch. It provides a natural way to interact with digital devices and user interfaces. Lofelt created the world’s most advanced high-definition haptic engine – the LoSound engine – to provide a new and unique experience of sound and music. Basslet is the first ever product to be equipped with the HD haptic engine for music listening, gaming and VR.
The LoSound engine effortlessly recreates bass frequencies down to 10 Hz. It provides a bass-optimized frequency response and large dynamic range to handle low-end peaks with extreme accuracy. The high precision of the LoSound engine results in a deep music experience – making you feel like you are surrounded by sound. You can see the working of this engine here.
The LoSound engine is the most powerful and accurate micro-actuator for HD haptic feedback on the market. It is based on an innovative voice-coil design with highly optimised magnetic flows which allows it to be extremely powerful yet remarkably compact – and silent to the outside world.
Along with allowing you to feel the thump of a kick drum or the groove of a funky bassline in high definition, features include:
- Plug and play – no software or configuration needed
- 6+ hours playtime
- Totally Silent
- Frequency response from 10 to 250 Hz
- Small sender to connect to any device with mini jack
- Immersive gaming & VR
Jump into your game and feel the heat of the action as if you’re there.The Basslet enhances the feeling of immersion. Get physical feedback from your environment: punches, explosions, kickback – and much more.
The Basslet works for anything that has sound: connect it to your smartphone, laptop, gaming console, VR headset – even with your old Walkman. Just connect the sender to your headphones and it’s done! No app needed.
Applications for the LoSound engine go well beyond the realm of music, gaming and VR. The automotive, robotic, aerospace, entertainment and medical industries, amongst others, are turning to haptic technology to fulfill different purposes. Lofelt’s high-definition haptic technology has the potential to revolutionize several products and to bring whole new device-categories to life. This watch-size subwoofer is hence a good buy starting at $199. You can buy it here.
In the near future, the use of high-quality touch feedback will become widespread, like wireless connectivity or touch screen technology. Haptics will move quickly from something special to something that people expect in all their favorite devices. Lofelt’s mission is to continue providing the world’s most advanced haptic technology – giving a new dimension to everyday products and experiences.
