Whether it was Gunship and the pounding Drone Racing– the kick drum alone makes it worth having a look at– Woojer Strap Setup… 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 club, and if you’re a fan of music the Woojer Vest Edge brings it to life in such a way you can’t easily 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 skews towards the much heavier end you’ll find it tough to return.
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 depositing them on your head. I fretted that there ‘d be too many loose cable televisions, however with some positioning under and around the Vest Edge there was never ever anything in the way, and nor did it restrict my motion.
If you’ve inspected out apps like Prime Video VR or Bigscreen you’ll understand that they put you in a virtual movie theater, and watching blockbusters in VR can be quite special. Adding in the Vest Edge suggestions things strongly into ‘almost as good as the real thing’.
I do not believe I ‘d spent much time believing about how filmmakers tweak the sound mix to draw the audience in, however the lack of low frequencies in the opening was hammered home once they appeared, including major depth to both the soundtrack and the superhero action. I enjoyed this; it’s absolutely like having your own cinema, and given that I ‘d paired the Vest Edge with Razer’s haptic-toting Nari Ultimate I was experiencing every blow, every blast, simply like you would in a well-equipped movie theatre.
