Whether it was Gunship and the pounding Drone Racing– the kick drum alone makes it worth checking out– Woojer Strap Black Friday… 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 club, and if you’re a fan of music the Woojer Vest Edge brings it to life in a manner you can’t easily reproduce. If you’re a fan of classical 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 discover it difficult to return.
Taking the 3.5 mm feed from the Oculus into the Vest Edge’s control unit, you then connect your headphones in series before depositing them on your head. I fretted that there ‘d be too lots of loose cable televisions, however with some positioning under and around the Vest Edge there was never ever anything in the method, and nor did it limit 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 viewing hits in VR can be pretty special. Adding in the Vest Edge tips things strongly into ‘nearly as good as the real thing’.
I went with Spider-Man Homecoming as my first port of call, and things began fairly suppressed. I don’t believe I ‘d spent 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, including serious depth to both the superhero and the soundtrack action. I enjoyed 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
