Whether it was Gunship and the pounding Drone Racing– the kick drum alone makes it worth taking a look at– Woojer Edge Precio… or The Word Alive’s Quit While You’re Ahead, I adored listening to music in this way. It’s somewhere in between being down the front at a gig and standing beside 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 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 skews towards the heavier end you’ll discover it hard to return.
Taking the 3.5 mm feed from the Oculus into the Vest Edge’s control unit, you then attach your earphones in series prior to depositing them on your head. I fretted that there ‘d be too numerous loose cables, but with some placing under and around the Vest Edge there was never anything in the way, and nor did it restrict my motion.
If you’ve checked out apps like Prime Video VR or Bigscreen you’ll know that they put you in a virtual movie theater, and seeing smash hits in VR can be quite unique. Adding in the Vest Edge pointers things firmly into ‘nearly as excellent as the genuine thing’.
I opted for Spider-Man Homecoming as my very first port of call, and things started reasonably controlled. I do not believe I ‘d invested much time thinking about how filmmakers fine-tune 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 definitely like having your own movie theater, and given that I ‘d combined the Vest Edge with Razer’s haptic-toting Nari Ultimate I was experiencing every blow, every blast, just like you would in a well-equipped movie theatre. No, wait. It’s much better than that
