Whether it was Gunship and the pounding Drone Racing– the kick drum alone makes it worth having a look at– Woojer Strap Review Reddit… or The Word Alive’s Quit While You’re Ahead, I loved listening to music in this way. It’s someplace in between being down the front at a gig and standing next to a bass bin in a nightclub, and if you’re a fan of music the Woojer Vest Edge brings it to life in such a way 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 go back.
I followed up my musical jaunts with some film time. This was where I took my first venture into VR with the Vest Edge, and the set up on Oculus Quest 2 was basic and quick. Taking the 3.5 mm feed from the Oculus into the Vest Edge’s control system, you then attach your earphones in series prior to transferring 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 limit my movement.
If you have actually checked 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 unique. Adding in the Vest Edge pointers things strongly into ‘almost as good as the genuine thing’.
I selected Spider-Man Homecoming as my very first port of call, and things began relatively subdued. 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 radio frequencies in the opening was hammered home once they appeared, adding serious depth to both the soundtrack and the superhero action. I liked this; it’s definitely like having your own cinema, and considered that I ‘d paired the Vest Edge with Razer’s haptic-toting Nari Ultimate I was experiencing every blow, every blast, much like you would in a fully equipped movie theatre. No, wait. It’s much better than that
