Whether it was Gunship and the pounding Drone Racing– the kick drum alone makes it worth having a look at– Woojer Kickstarter… or The Word Alive’s Quit While You’re Ahead, I adored listening to music in this way. It’s somewhere 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 a way you can’t easily duplicate. If you’re a fan of classical music or 60s pop there’s going to be less of a draw, however if your taste alters towards the much heavier end you’ll find it tough 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 before transferring them on your head. I worried 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 have actually examined out apps like Prime Video VR or Bigscreen you’ll know that they put you in a virtual cinema, and enjoying hits in VR can be pretty special. Adding in the Vest Edge ideas things firmly into ‘nearly as good as the real thing’.
I selected Spider-Man Homecoming as my very first port of call, and things started out reasonably suppressed. 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 absence of radio frequencies in the opening was hammered home once they appeared, adding severe depth to both the superhero and the soundtrack action. I liked this; it’s definitely like having your own movie theater, and considered that I ‘d matched 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 much better than that
