Whether it was Gunship and the pounding Drone Racing– the kick drum alone makes it worth checking out– Woojer Rig Vest Aptx Low Latency… 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 beside a bass bin in a bar, and if you’re a fan of music the Woojer Vest Edge brings it to life in a manner you can’t easily duplicate. 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 heavier end you’ll find it difficult to return.
Taking the 3.5 mm feed from the Oculus into the Vest Edge’s control system, you then attach your earphones in series before depositing them on your head. I worried that there ‘d be too lots of loose cable televisions, however with some positioning under and around the Vest Edge there was never anything in the method, 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 seeing smash hits in VR can be pretty special. Including in the Vest Edge ideas things securely into ‘nearly as great as the genuine thing’.
I went with Spider-Man Homecoming as my first port of call, and things started relatively controlled. I do not believe I ‘d invested much time thinking of how filmmakers modify the sound mix to draw the audience in, but the lack of low frequencies in the opening was hammered home once they appeared, adding severe depth to both the soundtrack and the superhero 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, just like you would in a fully equipped movie theatre. No, wait. It’s better than that
