Whether it was Gunship and the pounding Drone Racing– the kick drum alone makes it worth having a look at– Buy Woojer… or The Word Alive’s Quit While You’re Ahead, I loved listening to music in this way. It’s somewhere between being down the front at a gig and standing next to a bass bin in a bar, and if you’re a fan of music the Woojer Vest Edge brings it to life in a way you can’t easily reproduce. If you’re a fan of symphonic music or 60s pop there’s going to be less of a draw, however if your taste alters towards the heavier end you’ll find it difficult to go back.
Taking the 3.5 mm feed from the Oculus into the Vest Edge’s control system, you then attach your headphones in series prior to transferring them on your head. I fretted that there ‘d be too many loose cable televisions, but with some positioning under and around the Vest Edge there was never ever anything in the way, and nor did it limit my motion.
If you have actually examined out apps like Prime Video VR or Bigscreen you’ll understand that they put you in a virtual cinema, and enjoying hits in VR can be quite unique. Adding in the Vest Edge pointers things strongly into ‘almost as great as the genuine thing’.
I selected Spider-Man Homecoming as my very first port of call, and things started relatively subdued. I don’t believe I ‘d invested much time considering how filmmakers modify the sound mix to draw the audience in, however the lack of radio frequencies in the opening was hammered home once they appeared, including serious depth to both the soundtrack and the superhero action. I liked this; it’s definitely like having your own movie theater, and given that I ‘d combined the Vest Edge with Razer’s haptic-toting Nari Ultimate I was experiencing every blow, every blast, just like you would in a fully equipped movie theatre. No, wait. It’s better than that
