Whether it was Gunship and the pounding Drone Racing– the kick drum alone makes it worth taking a look at– Woojer Edge For Music Reddit… or The Word Alive’s Quit While You’re Ahead, I loved 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 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 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 tough to return.
Taking the 3.5 mm feed from the Oculus into the Vest Edge’s control system, you then attach your earphones in series prior to depositing them on your head. I worried that there ‘d be too lots of loose cables, but with some positioning under and around the Vest Edge there was never anything in the way, and nor did it restrict my motion.
If you’ve inspected out apps like Prime Video VR or Bigscreen you’ll know that they put you in a virtual cinema, and seeing hits in VR can be quite special. Adding in the Vest Edge tips things strongly into ‘nearly as good as the genuine thing’.
I went with Spider-Man Homecoming as my first port of call, and things began fairly controlled. I do not believe I ‘d spent much time considering how filmmakers tweak the sound mix to draw the audience in, but the lack 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 absolutely like having your own movie theater, and considered 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
