There are numerous proposals of tactile displays that aim to improve music listening experiences. However, these devices commonly have problems, such as the heavy weight and large size of the device due to numerous actuators, which lead to long setup time and user confinement to the system. To address these issues, we proposed to present vibration via user's collarbone. In this paper, we first investigated whether presenting vibration to the collarbone really contributes vibration transmission to wider areas of a user's body. Then, we performed a psychophysical experiment to evaluate subjective vibration effect with actual music listening experience. Results suggest that presenting vibration through the collarbone induces vibration transmission to wider area, and contributes user's subjective music listening experience.
