Get Woojer Strap Edge 22% OFF

 

Whether it was Gunship and the pounding Drone Racing– the kick drum alone makes it worth having a look at– Woojer Strap Edge… or The Word Alive’s Quit While You’re Ahead, I loved listening to music in this way. It’s someplace 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 duplicate. 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 much heavier end you’ll find it tough to go back.

I followed up my musical jaunts with some motion picture time. This was where I took my first foray into VR with the Vest Edge, and the set up on Oculus Quest 2 was simple and speedy. Taking the 3.5 mm feed from the Oculus into the Vest Edge’s control system, you then connect your earphones in series prior to depositing them on your head. I worried that there ‘d be a lot of loose cables, but with some placing under and around the Vest Edge there was never ever anything in the way, and nor did it restrict my motion.

You’re best served here with some powerful programming; I’m thinking more Michael Bay than Michael Moore. While you can have this established for routine watching– it’s a cinch if you’re hooked into your DualSense or Xbox controller– VR watching is unconditionally the way forward. If you’ve had a look at apps like Prime Video VR or Bigscreen you’ll know that they put you in a virtual cinema, and watching blockbusters in VR can be quite unique. Adding in the Vest Edge pointers things strongly into ‘nearly as good as the genuine thing’.

I chose Spider-Man Homecoming as my first port of call, and things started fairly controlled. I don’t believe I ‘d spent much time considering how filmmakers fine-tune the sound mix to draw the audience in, but the absence of low frequencies in the opening was hammered home once they appeared, including serious depth to both the soundtrack and the superhero action. I enjoyed this; it’s absolutely like having your own cinema, 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 well-equipped movie theatre. No, wait. It’s much better than that
