Whether it was Gunship and the pounding Drone Racing– the kick drum alone makes it worth having a look at– Woojer Full Surround Haptic Vest… or The Word Alive’s Quit While You’re Ahead, I loved 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 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 symphonic music or 60s pop there’s going to be less of a draw, but if your taste skews towards the heavier end you’ll find it hard to go back.
I followed up my musical jaunts with some motion picture time. This was where I took my first venture into VR with the Vest Edge, and the set up on Oculus Quest 2 was quick and simple. Taking the 3.5 mm feed from the Oculus into the Vest Edge’s control unit, you then connect your earphones in series before transferring them on your head. I fretted that there ‘d be too many loose cables, but with some positioning under and around the Vest Edge there was never ever anything in the method, and nor did it restrict my motion.
If you have actually inspected out apps like Prime Video VR or Bigscreen you’ll understand that they put you in a virtual movie theater, and watching hits in VR can be pretty special. Adding in the Vest Edge pointers things firmly into ‘nearly as great as the genuine thing’.
I don’t believe I ‘d spent much time thinking about how filmmakers tweak the sound mix to draw the audience in, however the lack of low frequencies in the opening was hammered house once they appeared, adding severe depth to both the superhero and the soundtrack action. I liked this; it’s absolutely like having your own cinema, and offered that I ‘d paired the Vest Edge with Razer’s haptic-toting Nari Ultimate I was experiencing every blow, every blast, simply like you would in a fully equipped motion picture theatre.
