Whether it was Gunship and the pounding Drone Racing– the kick drum alone makes it worth checking out– Woojer Best Buy… 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 beside a bass bin in a nightclub, and if you’re a fan of music the Woojer Vest Edge brings it to life in a manner you can’t quickly reproduce. 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 much heavier end you’ll find it difficult to go back.
Taking the 3.5 mm feed from the Oculus into the Vest Edge’s control unit, you then connect your headphones in series before transferring them on your head. I stressed that there ‘d be too lots of loose cable televisions, but with some positioning under and around the Vest Edge there was never ever anything in the way, and nor did it limit my motion.
If you’ve checked out apps like Prime Video VR or Bigscreen you’ll know that they put you in a virtual cinema, and enjoying hits in VR can be pretty special. Adding in the Vest Edge ideas things strongly into ‘almost as great as the genuine thing’.
I chose Spider-Man Homecoming as my very first port of call, and things started out relatively controlled. I don’t believe I ‘d spent much time considering how filmmakers fine-tune the sound mix to draw the audience in, but the lack of radio frequencies in the opening was hammered home once they appeared, including severe depth to both the superhero and the soundtrack action. I loved this; it’s definitely like having your own cinema, and considered that I ‘d combined the Vest Edge with Razer’s haptic-toting Nari Ultimate I was experiencing every blow, every blast, similar to you would in a well-equipped movie theatre. No, wait. It’s much better than that
