I bought a bass shaker and I'm loving it with H5.

I've been interested in bass shakers for my home theater for a while. Bass shakers are like a subwoofer but they silently vibrate. Kind of like the rumble in your controller.  They always seemed too indulgent and expensive for what could be a gimmick so I slept on it. Controller rumble I don't like.

They can be way cheaper these days so I bought a setup for under $100 all in and it is amazing.   I game in an office chair via a monitor and a40s. My experience has improved greatly. There are so many deep THX intro like sounds that I never knew existed before. The sniper sounds and feels incredible. Lifts and power weapon pickups mean something now.

I believe I am playing at a lower overall headphone volume but with a much bigger perception of bass. That's a bonus.

Butt-kicker sells a dedicated products that do this which people like. They are more expensive. Mine is a $38 dollar shaker and $32 amp to power it + I needed a 4 pole Y cable for my headphone port. I bolted the shaker to the wooden bottom of my chair and I'm booming now.

I tried it bolted to my couch for movies and I could take it or leave it. It was cool at times but other times it bothered me. For music it was annoying. For games this thing rocks. Treat yourself.

Any chance you can take a picture of it and post it. I would like to see this tricked out computer chair. The image in my head of it is hilarious. :ghost:


It does sound pretty cool though.
