Kohler Co. Underscore Bath with VibrAcoustic Technology
MSRP: Starting at $3,245
Adding to the wave of its recent technology innovations, Kohler Co., a global leader in kitchen and bath design, introduces VibrAcoustic technology on all nine models of the Underscore bath line. This technology-based sound therapy is engineered to ease tension and stress for complete body relaxation by sending sound waves via six transducers placed both above and below the water level through the bather’s entire body. With four original compositions to choose from and the ability to play your own music, it’s an experience that can fit any mood -relax and unwind or rev up for a busy day or fun night out. The four original compositions, created in collaboration with a renowned sound therapist, integrate music, vibration and lighting in order to encourage the bather’s breathing rate to align with the beats or chord structures. And when the tub isn’t being used for bathing, its optimum sound s system allows it to double as a stand-along audio solution for the entire space. The bather can stream music and podcasts through the bath from a mobile device via hardwire connection or wirelessly with a Bluetooth receiver. The VibrAcoustic experience is controlled by an intuitive full-color touch screen user interface.

While other bathing experiences have incorporated chromatherapy or music, VibrAcoustic unites both and utilizes six transducers strategically placed around the bath's exterior to send soundwaves both through and above the water line for a truly therapeutic water massage. It's these vibrations, coupled with the soothing experience of the VibrAcoustic's four custom compositions, that lead the body to a state of complete relaxation. And the enjoyment continues - even when water isn't in it. When not in use, VibrAcoustic technology allows the homeowner to use the bath as an audio source, instantly transforming the bath into a personal concert hall.
VibrAcoustic technology permeates your entire body with buoyant rhythms that carry you on a course toward complete relaxation. Vibrations surround your body and resound throughout your core as the slow, sonic rhythms pulse both above and below the waterline. Choose one of our four original compositions or listen to music on your own personal device. Either way, the resulting relaxation and calm is closer to a spa session than anything previous experienced in the bath. VibrAcoustic panels broadcast sound waves that travel through the water and gently resound in the body. Strategically positioned throughout the bath to provide the most beneficial effects to the entire body, these panels are concealed under the shell of the bath for a smooth, uninterrupted bathing surface. Music and chromatherapy are choreographed to work in unison with the VibrAcoustic panels for a holistic approach to profound relaxation.
Special speakers hidden behind the shell of the bath emit sound waves that travel through the water to both envelop and gently resound within the body. Each speaker is strategically positioned throughout the bath to provide the most beneficial effects to the entire body.
An easy-to-use, conveniently located user interface controls all VibrAcoustic features and affords bathers the option of listening to the four compositions or their own music.
