Whether it was Gunship and the pounding Drone Racing– the kick drum alone makes it worth checking out– Code Promo Woojer… or The Word Alive’s Quit While You’re Ahead, I adored listening to music in this way. It’s someplace in between being down the front at a gig and standing next to a bass bin in a club, and if you’re a fan of music the Woojer Vest Edge brings it to life in such a way you can’t quickly reproduce. If you’re a fan of classical music or 60s pop there’s going to be less of a draw, but if your taste alters towards the much heavier end you’ll find it difficult to return.
Taking the 3.5 mm feed from the Oculus into the Vest Edge’s control unit, you then connect your earphones in series before depositing them on your head. I worried that there ‘d be too lots of loose cable televisions, but with some placing under and around the Vest Edge there was never ever anything in the way, and nor did it restrict my movement.
If you’ve examined out apps like Prime Video VR or Bigscreen you’ll understand that they put you in a virtual cinema, and seeing hits in VR can be pretty special. Including in the Vest Edge tips things firmly into ‘nearly as excellent as the genuine thing’.
I opted for Spider-Man Homecoming as my very first port of call, and things started fairly suppressed. I do not think I ‘d invested much time thinking about how filmmakers tweak the sound mix to draw the audience in, but the lack of low frequencies in the opening was hammered home once they appeared, including severe depth to both the soundtrack and the superhero action. I loved this; it’s absolutely like having your own cinema, and considered that I ‘d combined the Vest Edge with Razer’s haptic-toting Nari Ultimate I was experiencing every blow, every blast, much like you would in a well-equipped movie theatre. No, wait. It’s much better than that
