Whether it was Gunship and the pounding Drone Racing– the kick drum alone makes it worth taking a look at– How Does Woojer Connect… or The Word Alive’s Quit While You’re Ahead, I adored listening to music in this way. It’s somewhere in between being down the front at a gig and standing beside a bass bin in a club, 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 skews towards the much heavier end you’ll discover 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 before depositing them on your head. I stressed that there ‘d be too numerous loose cables, but with some placing under and around the Vest Edge there was never ever anything in the way, and nor did it limit my motion.
If you’ve examined out apps like Prime Video VR or Bigscreen you’ll know that they put you in a virtual cinema, and viewing smash hits in VR can be pretty special. Adding in the Vest Edge tips things firmly into ‘nearly as excellent as the genuine thing’.
I do not think I ‘d invested much time believing about how filmmakers tweak the sound mix to draw the audience in, however the lack of low frequencies in the opening was hammered home once they appeared, including major depth to both the superhero and the soundtrack action. I loved this; it’s absolutely like having your own cinema, and given that I ‘d paired 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 motion picture theatre.
