Get Woojer Jacket 22% OFF

 

Whether it was Gunship and the pounding Drone Racing– the kick drum alone makes it worth taking a look at– Woojer Jacket… or The Word Alive’s Quit While You’re Ahead, I loved listening to music in this way. It’s someplace in between being down the front at a gig and standing beside a bass bin in a bar, 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, but if your taste alters towards the much heavier end you’ll find it hard to return.

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 Mission 2 was swift and easy. Taking the 3.5 mm feed from the Oculus into the Vest Edge’s control unit, you then attach your headphones in series before depositing them on your head. I worried that there ‘d be a lot of loose cables, but with some positioning under and around the Vest Edge there was never anything in the way, and nor did it restrict my motion.

If you have actually examined out apps like Prime Video VR or Bigscreen you’ll understand that they put you in a virtual cinema, and enjoying blockbusters in VR can be quite special. Adding in the Vest Edge suggestions things strongly into ‘nearly as great as the real thing’.

I selected Spider-Man Homecoming as my first port of call, and things started out reasonably controlled. I don’t believe I ‘d invested much time considering how filmmakers tweak the sound mix to draw the audience in, however the lack of low frequencies in the opening was hammered home once they appeared, adding major depth to both the superhero and the soundtrack action. I enjoyed this; it’s definitely like having your own cinema, and given that I ‘d paired the Vest Edge with Razer’s haptic-toting Nari Ultimate I was experiencing every blow, every blast, much like you would in a well-equipped movie theatre. No, wait. It’s better than that
