What is the best bass shaker? The aura against the butt kicker

Website design By BotEap.comI love bass vibrators.

Website design By BotEap.comStrategically placed under your chair, they add to the experience of any movie, game, or piece of music. Every explosion, every car chase, every fight scene turns into physical vibrations that shake your body properly.

Website design By BotEap.comFor many, the choice comes down to the Aura Bass Shaker or the ButtKicker. I have them both in my house: the Aura under my couch and the BK under my gaming chair. They are both robust and well-made products, and I cannot speak highly enough of them.

Website design By BotEap.comIt all depends on the type of experience you want. If you want to shake your bones so hard your teeth chatter and your friends fly off your couch, AND you’re not worried about the price, choose the ButtKicker.

Website design By BotEap.comHow do they compare?

Website design By BotEap.comIn many ways, the specs speak for themselves. These guys, while cool, are as different as chalk and cheese.

Website design By BotEap.comClearly, ButtKicker has a bit more of a growl. Plus, it’s wireless, which means a neat setup with no cables attached to the walls. Given the power of this machine, you will have to work very hard to get the sound right, and you may have to glue some rubber feet to the bottom of your sofa to prevent some strange sounds from happening. However, once you get the sound right, your friends will never know what hit them when they sit down to play a game of Baja Edge of Control.

Website design By BotEap.comSo what about the humblest Aura? At a much lower price, you won’t get all the added extras. You’ll have to deal with cables and won’t get the extreme rumble of the ButtKicker. However, the Aura responds amazingly to low sounds at low volumes. If you live in an apartment, next to grumpy neighbors, this is a brilliant way to enhance your “great sound” experience without actually having great sound. The Aura subtly tricks your brain into thinking you have your subwoofer up to 11.

Website design By BotEap.comAnd the winner is?

Website design By BotEap.comFor the mammoth rumble, the ButtKicker is ideal. However, my heart belongs to the Aura because it is responsive, rumbling, and reasonable, and it definitely stands its ground in the face of its larger cousins.
