Whether it was Gunship and the pounding Drone Racing– the kick drum alone makes it worth having a look at– Woojer Recensione… 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 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 replicate. 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 heavier end you’ll find it tough to return.
I followed up my musical jaunts with some movie time. This was where I took my first venture into VR with the Vest Edge, and the set up on Oculus Mission 2 was quick and basic. Taking the 3.5 mm feed from the Oculus into the Vest Edge’s control system, you then connect your headphones in series before transferring them on your head. I fretted that there ‘d be a lot of loose cable televisions, however with some placing under and around the Vest Edge there was never anything in the method, and nor did it limit my motion.
You’re best served here with some effective programming; I’m thinking more Michael Bay than Michael Moore. While you can have this set up for routine watching– it’s a cinch if you’re hooked into your DualSense or Xbox controller– VR watching is unconditionally the method forward. If you have actually had a look at apps like Prime Video VR or Bigscreen you’ll know that they put you in a virtual cinema, and enjoying smash hits in VR can be pretty unique. Including the Vest Edge suggestions 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 fairly suppressed. I don’t think I ‘d spent much time considering 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 major 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 paired 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
