Here is a watch-like device by researchers of Augmented Human Lab at University of Auckland that allows the hearing-impaired to feel music. It consists of a sensor bit that can be plugged into audio sources and a display bit, which has a a vibrotactile motor and LED lights encased in a watch-like device.

The device lets people feel the music on their wrist and arm. As the developers explain:

It has brought her a lot of joy, particularly when driving the car and she can turn up the stereo, and has helped her recall and feel music she used to be able to hear.
