Whether it was Gunship and the pounding Drone Racing– the kick drum alone makes it worth checking out– Woojer Edge Ad… or The Word Alive’s Quit While You’re Ahead, I adored listening to music in this way. It’s someplace 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 quickly reproduce. If you’re a fan of classical 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 difficult to return.
Taking the 3.5 mm feed from the Oculus into the Vest Edge’s control system, you then connect your earphones in series before transferring them on your head. I fretted that there ‘d be too many loose cable televisions, however with some positioning under and around the Vest Edge there was never ever anything in the method, and nor did it limit my movement.
You’re finest 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 taken a look at apps like Prime Video VR or Bigscreen you’ll understand that they put you in a virtual cinema, and viewing smash hits in VR can be quite unique. Adding in the Vest Edge tips things strongly into ‘almost as good as the real thing’.
I selected Spider-Man Homecoming as my very first port of call, and things started out reasonably subdued. I don’t believe I ‘d spent much time thinking of how filmmakers tweak the sound mix to draw the audience in, but the absence of radio frequencies in the opening was hammered home once they appeared, including serious depth to both the soundtrack and the superhero action. I liked this; it’s definitely 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 fully equipped movie theatre. No, wait. It’s better than that
