Whether it was Gunship and the pounding Drone Racing– the kick drum alone makes it worth having a look at– Woojer Strap Gaming… 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 nightclub, and if you’re a fan of music the Woojer Vest Edge brings it to life in a way you can’t quickly replicate. 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 heavier end you’ll discover 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 Quest 2 was speedy and easy. 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 many loose cables, 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 know that they put you in a virtual cinema, and viewing blockbusters in VR can be quite special. Including in the Vest Edge tips things strongly into ‘almost as good as the genuine thing’.
I do not believe I ‘d invested much time believing about how filmmakers tweak 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 loved this; it’s absolutely like having your own cinema, and given that I ‘d combined 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 film theatre.
