Whether it was Gunship and the pounding Drone Racing– the kick drum alone makes it worth taking a look at– Veste Edge Woojer… 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 a way you can’t quickly 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 heavier end you’ll discover it tough to go back.
I followed up my musical jaunts with some movie time. This was where I took my first foray into VR with the Vest Edge, and the established on Oculus Quest 2 was simple and swift. Taking the 3.5 mm feed from the Oculus into the Vest Edge’s control system, you then attach your earphones in series before depositing them on your head. I worried that there ‘d be too many loose cable televisions, however with some positioning under and around the Vest Edge there was never anything in the way, and nor did it restrict my movement.
You’re finest served here with some powerful programming; I’m believing more Michael Bay than Michael Moore. While you can have this set up for routine watching– it’s a cinch if you’re hooked into your DualSense or Xbox controller– VR watching is categorically the method forward. If you’ve taken a look at apps like Prime Video VR or Bigscreen you’ll understand that they put you in a virtual movie theater, and viewing smash hits in VR can be quite special. Adding in the Vest Edge ideas things strongly into ‘nearly as good as the real thing’.
I don’t believe 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, adding 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 fully equipped motion picture theatre.
