Whether it was Gunship and the pounding Drone Racing– the kick drum alone makes it worth checking out– Woojer Edge Manual… 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 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 such a way you can’t quickly replicate. If you’re a fan of symphonic music or 60s pop there’s going to be less of a draw, however if your taste alters towards the heavier end you’ll discover it hard to go back.
I followed up my musical jaunts with some film time. This was where I took my first foray into VR with the Vest Edge, and the set up on Oculus Quest 2 was basic and quick. 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 worried that there ‘d be too many loose cables, but with some placing under and around the Vest Edge there was never ever anything in the way, and nor did it restrict my movement.
If you have actually inspected out 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 pretty unique. Including in the Vest Edge ideas things strongly into ‘almost as great as the real thing’.
I chose Spider-Man Homecoming as my very first port of call, and things started out reasonably controlled. I do not think I ‘d invested much time considering 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 major 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 matched the Vest Edge with Razer’s haptic-toting Nari Ultimate I was experiencing every blow, every blast, similar to you would in a fully equipped movie theatre. No, wait. It’s much better than that
