Whether it was Gunship and the pounding Drone Racing– the kick drum alone makes it worth taking a look at– Woojer Headphones… or The Word Alive’s Quit While You’re Ahead, I adored listening to music in this way. It’s someplace between being down the front at a gig and standing next to a bass bin in a nightclub, 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 skews towards the much heavier end you’ll discover it hard to go back.
Taking the 3.5 mm feed from the Oculus into the Vest Edge’s control system, you then attach your earphones in series prior to depositing them on your head. I fretted that there ‘d be too lots of loose cables, but with some positioning under and around the Vest Edge there was never anything in the method, and nor did it limit my motion.
If you have actually examined 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 unique. Adding in the Vest Edge ideas things firmly into ‘almost as good as the genuine thing’.
I went with Spider-Man Homecoming as my very first port of call, and things began fairly controlled. I do not believe I ‘d spent much time thinking of how filmmakers fine-tune the sound mix to draw the audience in, but the lack of radio frequencies in the opening was hammered home once they appeared, including serious depth to both the superhero and the soundtrack action. I liked this; it’s absolutely like having your own cinema, and given that I ‘d combined the Vest Edge with Razer’s haptic-toting Nari Ultimate I was experiencing every blow, every blast, much like you would in a fully equipped movie theatre. No, wait. It’s better than that
