SubPac contest image

The headphone market has completely revolutionized over the past few years letting you hear some of the most crisp sounds imaginable and even being able to even mildly feel the bass in music. But nothing happens to compare to truly feeling the music and bass when seeing your favorite DJ or musician in a live setting. The sound you feel at a club or festival hits your body in ways you can never experience in the comfort of your own home… that is until now.

Say hello to the Sub Pac, a device that lets you literally feel the bass like never before. You can either wear the device like a backpack or you can get the seated version to add to your favorite chair. Then once you hook it up through your music source, you then begin to feel the low bass frequencies of your favorite songs physically exploding on your back. The experience is one you really have to try for yourself to understand. 

We've teamed up with one of the kings of the global bass community, Excision, to give 4 lucky winners his very own limited edition SubPac system. The B.C. based producer / DJ has fallen in love with the devices and wants the world to experience them. 

Excision recently released his annual edition of Shambahla Mix series, which has become one of the biggest mixes in bass music. It is full of unreleased music that Excision plays out live for everyone to enjoy. 

All you have to do to enter to win 1 of the 4 SubPac systems is follow Excision on Soundcloud and re-post his most recent Shambahla below.
