Whether it was Gunship and the pounding Drone Racing– the kick drum alone makes it worth having a look at– Kickstarter Woojer Strap Edge… or The Word Alive’s Quit While You’re Ahead, I loved 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 easily replicate. If you’re a fan of symphonic 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.
I followed up my musical jaunts with some film time. This was where I took my very first venture into VR with the Vest Edge, and the set up on Oculus Quest 2 was swift and basic. Taking the 3.5 mm feed from the Oculus into the Vest Edge’s control unit, you then attach your headphones in series prior to transferring 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 ever anything in the method, and nor did it limit my movement.
You’re best served here with some effective programs; I’m thinking more Michael Bay than Michael Moore. While you can have this set up for regular watching– it’s a cinch if you’re hooked into your DualSense or Xbox controller– VR watching is unconditionally the way forward. If you have actually checked out apps like Prime Video VR or Bigscreen you’ll understand that they put you in a virtual movie theater, and watching smash hits in VR can be pretty special. Including the Vest Edge pointers things strongly into ‘nearly as good as the genuine thing’.
I selected Spider-Man Homecoming as my very first port of call, and things started out fairly controlled. I don’t think I ‘d invested much time considering 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 severe depth to both the superhero and the soundtrack action. I loved this; it’s definitely like having your own movie theater, and considered that I ‘d paired the Vest Edge with Razer’s haptic-toting Nari Ultimate I was experiencing every blow, every blast, much like you would in a fully equipped movie theatre. No, wait. It’s better than that
