Whether it was Gunship and the pounding Drone Racing– the kick drum alone makes it worth taking a look at– Woojer Edge Immersive Experience That Lets You Feel Sound… 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 next to a bass bin in a club, and if you’re a fan of music the Woojer Vest Edge brings it to life in a way you can’t easily replicate. 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 heavier end you’ll find it hard to return.
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 Mission 2 was basic and speedy. Taking the 3.5 mm feed from the Oculus into the Vest Edge’s control system, you then attach your headphones in series prior to depositing them on your head. I fretted 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 restrict my movement.
You’re best served here with some effective programming; I’m thinking more Michael Bay than Michael Moore. While you can have this established for routine watching– it’s a cinch if you’re hooked into your DualSense or Xbox controller– VR watching is unconditionally the method forward. If you have actually taken a look at apps like Prime Video VR or Bigscreen you’ll know that they put you in a virtual movie theater, and watching blockbusters in VR can be quite special. Including the Vest Edge tips things securely into ‘almost as good as the genuine thing’.
I went with Spider-Man Homecoming as my first port of call, and things started reasonably suppressed. I do not think I ‘d spent much time considering how filmmakers modify the sound mix to draw the audience in, but the absence of low frequencies in the opening was hammered home once they appeared, including serious depth to both the superhero and the soundtrack action. I enjoyed this; it’s definitely 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, similar to you would in a well-equipped movie theatre. No, wait. It’s much better than that
