Twelve South introduces the all-new BassJump 2, a portable USB-powered subwoofer that turns MacBook Pro or MacBook Air into a travel-friendly sound system. Like the original, BassJump 2 is powered by a single USB connection and uses proprietary software that blends the sound output of the BassJump subwoofer with the output of built-in Mac speakers for dramatically enhanced sound. The new BassJump 2 includes remastered software that delivers greater compatibility and eight more decibels of sound. BassJump 2 is available now at Amazon.com and other outlets for $69.99. Here is more info:
Software refinements make BassJump 2 compatible with iMac and Apple Thunderbolt Display speakers, as well as third party USB and headphone-connected speakers. BassJump 2 enhances the sound of iMacs and Apple Thunderbolt Displays by adding mid- and low-frequencies for a deeper, fuller sound. Minimalists will see a less cluttered workspace but hear better sound without the added clutter of extra power cables and speakers on their desk.
Since its initial release, some of the biggest BassJump fans have been professional musicians, citing sound quality and portability as the key features. BassJump 2 works with most pro audio software, including Apple’s Logic Studio, making it an excellent monitor for musicians listening to and editing tracks on the road. Direct feedback from the music community led to several of the enhancements that make the new BassJump 2 sing.
