Whether it was Gunship and the pounding Drone Racing– the kick drum alone makes it worth checking out– Connect Woojer To Xbox One Controller… or The Word Alive’s Quit While You’re Ahead, I loved listening to music in this way. It’s somewhere 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 replicate. 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 tough to return.
Taking the 3.5 mm feed from the Oculus into the Vest Edge’s control unit, you then connect your headphones in series prior to transferring them on your head. I worried that there ‘d be too many loose cables, however 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 have actually inspected out apps like Prime Video VR or Bigscreen you’ll understand that they put you in a virtual movie theater, and watching hits in VR can be pretty unique. Including in the Vest Edge pointers things firmly into ‘almost as excellent as the real thing’.
I opted for Spider-Man Homecoming as my very first port of call, and things started out fairly subdued. I don’t think I ‘d spent much time thinking of how filmmakers tweak the sound mix to draw the audience in, however the lack of radio frequencies in the opening was hammered home once they appeared, adding major depth to both the superhero and the soundtrack action. I loved this; it’s absolutely like having your own cinema, and considered that I ‘d paired 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
