Whether it was Gunship and the pounding Drone Racing– the kick drum alone makes it worth having a look at– Woojer Edge Immersive Experience… or The Word Alive’s Quit While You’re Ahead, I loved listening to music in this way. It’s someplace 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 easily duplicate. 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 tough to go back.
Taking the 3.5 mm feed from the Oculus into the Vest Edge’s control unit, you then connect your earphones in series prior to depositing them on your head. I stressed that there ‘d be too many loose cables, however with some placing under and around the Vest Edge there was never anything in the method, and nor did it limit my movement.
If you’ve inspected out apps like Prime Video VR or Bigscreen you’ll know that they put you in a virtual movie theater, and watching hits in VR can be pretty special. Adding in the Vest Edge suggestions things securely into ‘nearly as great as the genuine thing’.
I chose Spider-Man Homecoming as my very first port of call, and things began fairly subdued. I don’t think I ‘d invested much time thinking of how filmmakers tweak the sound mix to draw the audience in, however the absence of low 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 given that I ‘d paired the Vest Edge with Razer’s haptic-toting Nari Ultimate I was experiencing every blow, every blast, just like you would in a fully equipped movie theatre. No, wait. It’s much better than that
