Whether it was Gunship and the pounding Drone Racing– the kick drum alone makes it worth checking out– Woojer App… or The Word Alive’s Quit While You’re Ahead, I adored 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 bar, 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 classical music or 60s pop there’s going to be less of a draw, but if your taste alters towards the heavier end you’ll discover it hard to go back.
I followed up my musical jaunts with some motion picture time. This was where I took my first venture into VR with the Vest Edge, and the established on Oculus Quest 2 was easy and quick. Taking the 3.5 mm feed from the Oculus into the Vest Edge’s control system, you then connect your headphones in series before transferring them on your head. I stressed 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 limit my movement.
You’re best served here with some powerful 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 viewing is categorically the way forward. If you’ve checked 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 special. Including the Vest Edge tips things firmly into ‘almost as good as the genuine thing’.
I don’t believe I ‘d spent much time thinking about how filmmakers tweak the sound mix to draw the audience in, but the absence of low frequencies in the opening was hammered home once they appeared, including serious depth to both the soundtrack and the superhero action. I enjoyed this; it’s absolutely like having your own movie theater, and offered that I ‘d combined the Vest Edge with Razer’s haptic-toting Nari Ultimate I was experiencing every blow, every blast, just like you would in a well-equipped motion picture theatre.
