Whether it was Gunship and the pounding Drone Racing– the kick drum alone makes it worth taking a look at– Woojer Opinie… 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 bar, and if you’re a fan of music the Woojer Vest Edge brings it to life in such a way you can’t easily reproduce. 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 tough to return.
Taking the 3.5 mm feed from the Oculus into the Vest Edge’s control unit, you then attach your headphones in series before transferring them on your head. I fretted that there ‘d be too lots of loose cables, however with some placing under and around the Vest Edge there was never ever anything in the way, and nor did it limit 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 cinema, and seeing hits in VR can be quite unique. Including in the Vest Edge tips things securely into ‘almost as excellent as the real thing’.
I don’t think I ‘d spent much time believing about how filmmakers tweak the sound mix to draw the audience in, but the lack of low frequencies in the opening was hammered home once they appeared, adding serious depth to both the superhero and the soundtrack action. I liked this; it’s definitely 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, simply like you would in a well-equipped film theatre.
