BSE silent subwoofer pillow is a must have monitoring extension. You just lean on it with your back or simply sit on it. When you work with your audio files and monitor on headphones you experience limited sound reproduction on the low end. This is due to techhnical limitations of headphones and human hearing perception. The BSE pillow will produce low end frequencies and push them through your body to your ears.
SOUND TRAVELS THROUGH YOUR BODY TO YOUR EARS
When your brain joins the information from your ears and the information from BSE pillow through your body, you hear a richer sound, extended to the low end of the spectrum. Perfect for mixing bass heavy tracks quietly.
What is BSE pillow
HOW DOES IT WORK
The transducer in a pillow makes low frequency vibrations that are translated into the listener's body instead of air. Standard sub-woofer pushes the air back and forward and creates sound waves that travel through air. Tactile sub-woofer or silent sub-woofer pushes sound waves directly into listener's body. This only works on low frequencies, below 120 Hz. That creates a body sound experience. Your brain joins the sound information from your ears with sound information from your body that together creates a very full and rich sound experience. Just like being in a club but at low volume levels.
Benefits of BSE pillow
True alternative to classic monitoring
It's been tough to mix on headphones only in the past. Especially mixing bass and kick or male choirs. Simpy put, BSE is a headphone for the bass and the feeling in your chest.
Preventing ear fatigue
Extending mixing time by keeping your ears fresh for longer periods because of low listening volumes. You can now mix kick and bass for hours straight without ear fatigue. Try this in a traditional studio. Yeah, we know. It's not possible.
Mix as loud as you want
Mixing loud at any time of the day is not a problem. You will never disturb your neighbours, roomates, family, colleagues or your grandma again.
Mix anywhere, it's portable
You can now take your monitoring room anywhere with you. It's small enough to fit in a sport bag. All you need is a DAW with a decent soundcard and OLLO BSE. For best results join it with OLLO HPS.
Incredible tool for professionals
Even if you already have a good traditional studio monitoring you can benefit from using BSE for mixing bass heavy music. You can keep your monitor's level down because you can feel the bass with the BSE. This extends your mixing time far beyond what you're used to.
No room acoustics! Wait, what?!
Yes, you don't need ANY room acoustic treatment if you go with OLLO monitoring system. Save that money for better software, gear or just save it for whatever. A decent acoustic will cost you at least 10.000€.
