Whether it was Gunship and the pounding Drone Racing– the kick drum alone makes it worth checking out– Woojer Belt… or The Word Alive’s Quit While You’re Ahead, I adored listening to music in this way. It’s somewhere between being down the front at a gig and standing beside a bass bin in a bar, and if you’re a fan of music the Woojer Vest Edge brings it to life in a manner you can’t quickly replicate. If you’re a fan of classical music or 60s pop there’s going to be less of a draw, however if your taste alters towards the heavier end you’ll find it tough to go back.
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 simple and quick. Taking the 3.5 mm feed from the Oculus into the Vest Edge’s control unit, you then attach your headphones in series before transferring them on your head. I worried that there ‘d be a lot of loose cables, however with some positioning under and around the Vest Edge there was never ever anything in the method, and nor did it limit my motion.
If you’ve examined out apps like Prime Video VR or Bigscreen you’ll understand that they put you in a virtual movie theater, and enjoying hits in VR can be quite special. Including in the Vest Edge ideas things strongly into ‘nearly as good as the genuine thing’.
I don’t believe I ‘d invested much time thinking about how filmmakers modify the sound mix to draw the audience in, but the lack of low frequencies in the opening was hammered home once they appeared, adding severe depth to both the superhero and the soundtrack action. I enjoyed this; it’s definitely like having your own cinema, and provided 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 movie theatre.
