Whether it was Gunship and the pounding Drone Racing– the kick drum alone makes it worth checking out– Woojer Casque Bluetooth… 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 beside a bass bin in a nightclub, and if you’re a fan of music the Woojer Vest Edge brings it to life in such 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 skews towards the much heavier end you’ll find 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 set up on Oculus Mission 2 was easy 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 before transferring them on your head. I fretted that there ‘d be too many loose cable televisions, however with some placing under and around the Vest Edge there was never anything in the way, and nor did it limit my motion.
If you have actually inspected out apps like Prime Video VR or Bigscreen you’ll know that they put you in a virtual movie theater, and viewing smash hits in VR can be quite unique. Including in the Vest Edge pointers things strongly into ‘nearly as excellent as the real thing’.
I went with Spider-Man Homecoming as my very first port of call, and things started fairly controlled. I do not think I ‘d invested much time considering how filmmakers modify the sound mix to draw the audience in, but the lack of radio 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 absolutely like having your own cinema, and given that I ‘d combined the Vest Edge with Razer’s haptic-toting Nari Ultimate I was experiencing every blow, every blast, much like you would in a well-equipped movie theatre. No, wait. It’s better than that
