Whether it was Gunship and the pounding Drone Racing– the kick drum alone makes it worth having a look at– Woojer Avis Test… 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 nightclub, and if you’re a fan of music the Woojer Vest Edge brings it to life in a way you can’t easily duplicate. If you’re a fan of symphonic music or 60s pop there’s going to be less of a draw, however if your taste alters towards the much heavier end you’ll discover it hard to return.
I followed up my musical jaunts with some movie time. This was where I took my very first venture into VR with the Vest Edge, and the established on Oculus Quest 2 was basic and swift. Taking the 3.5 mm feed from the Oculus into the Vest Edge’s control unit, you then connect your headphones in series prior to depositing them on your head. I fretted that there ‘d be a lot of 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 motion.
You’re finest served here with some powerful programming; I’m thinking more Michael Bay than Michael Moore. While you can have this established for routine 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 cinema, and seeing blockbusters in VR can be quite unique. Including the Vest Edge tips things firmly into ‘nearly as good as the genuine thing’.
I don’t think I ‘d spent much time thinking about how filmmakers fine-tune the sound mix to draw the audience in, however the absence of low frequencies in the opening was hammered house once they appeared, including severe depth to both the soundtrack and the superhero action. I loved this; it’s definitely like having your own movie theater, and provided that I ‘d paired 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.
