Whether it was Gunship and the pounding Drone Racing– the kick drum alone makes it worth taking a look at– Feelbelt Vs Woojer… or The Word Alive’s Quit While You’re Ahead, I adored listening to music in this way. It’s someplace between being down the front at a gig and standing beside a bass bin in a nightclub, 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, however if your taste alters towards the heavier end you’ll find it tough to return.
I followed up my musical jaunts with some movie time. This was where I took my very first foray into VR with the Vest Edge, and the established on Oculus Mission 2 was easy and quick. Taking the 3.5 mm feed from the Oculus into the Vest Edge’s control unit, you then attach your earphones in series before depositing them on your head. I fretted that there ‘d be a lot of loose cables, but with some positioning under and around the Vest Edge there was never anything in the way, and nor did it limit my motion.
If you’ve inspected out apps like Prime Video VR or Bigscreen you’ll understand that they put you in a virtual movie theater, and seeing hits in VR can be quite unique. Adding in the Vest Edge tips things securely into ‘nearly as good as the genuine thing’.
I don’t believe I ‘d invested much time thinking about how filmmakers modify the sound mix to draw the audience in, but the absence of low frequencies in the opening was hammered house once they appeared, including major depth to both the soundtrack and the superhero action. I loved this; it’s definitely like having your own cinema, and provided that I ‘d matched the Vest Edge with Razer’s haptic-toting Nari Ultimate I was experiencing every blow, every blast, simply like you would in a well-equipped movie theatre.
