Whether it was Gunship and the pounding Drone Racing– the kick drum alone makes it worth checking out– Woojer Strap Deaf… or The Word Alive’s Quit While You’re Ahead, I adored listening to music in this way. It’s someplace in 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 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, however if your taste alters towards the heavier end you’ll find it hard 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 prior to 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 ever anything in the method, and nor did it limit my movement.
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 enjoying blockbusters in VR can be pretty special. Adding in the Vest Edge tips things securely into ‘almost as excellent as the real thing’.
I selected Spider-Man Homecoming as my very first port of call, and things started out fairly subdued. I don’t think I ‘d invested much time thinking about 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 superhero and the soundtrack action. I loved this; it’s absolutely like having your own cinema, and considered that I ‘d combined the Vest Edge with Razer’s haptic-toting Nari Ultimate I was experiencing every blow, every blast, similar to you would in a fully equipped movie theatre. No, wait. It’s much better than that
