Whether it was Gunship and the pounding Drone Racing– the kick drum alone makes it worth having a look at– Woojer Subpac… or The Word Alive’s Quit While You’re Ahead, I adored listening to music in this way. It’s somewhere 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 such a way you can’t quickly replicate. If you’re a fan of symphonic 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 find it difficult to go back.
Taking the 3.5 mm feed from the Oculus into the Vest Edge’s control unit, you then connect your earphones in series before depositing them on your head. I fretted that there ‘d be too many loose cables, but with some placing under and around the Vest Edge there was never anything in the way, and nor did it limit my motion.
If you have actually checked out apps like Prime Video VR or Bigscreen you’ll understand that they put you in a virtual movie theater, and watching hits in VR can be pretty special. Adding in the Vest Edge pointers things firmly into ‘almost as great as the real thing’.
I do not believe I ‘d invested much time believing about how filmmakers modify the sound mix to draw the audience in, however the absence of low frequencies in the opening was hammered house once they appeared, including serious depth to both the superhero and the soundtrack action. I enjoyed this; it’s absolutely like having your own cinema, and offered 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 fully equipped motion picture theatre.
