Whether it was Gunship and the pounding Drone Racing– the kick drum alone makes it worth checking out– Woojer Unity… or The Word Alive’s Quit While You’re Ahead, I adored 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 bar, 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 symphonic 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 hard to return.
I followed up my musical jaunts with some motion picture time. This was where I took my very first foray into VR with the Vest Edge, and the set up on Oculus Mission 2 was swift and basic. Taking the 3.5 mm feed from the Oculus into the Vest Edge’s control system, you then attach your earphones in series before transferring them on your head. I fretted 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 restrict my motion.
You’re best served here with some powerful programming; I’m believing more Michael Bay than Michael Moore. While you can have this set up 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 checked out apps like Prime Video VR or Bigscreen you’ll understand that they put you in a virtual movie theater, and watching smash hits in VR can be quite special. Adding in the Vest Edge tips things securely into ‘almost as good as the real thing’.
I selected Spider-Man Homecoming as my first port of call, and things began fairly controlled. I don’t believe I ‘d invested much time considering how filmmakers fine-tune the sound mix to draw the audience in, but the absence of radio frequencies in the opening was hammered home once they appeared, including severe depth to both the soundtrack and the superhero action. I enjoyed this; it’s absolutely like having your own movie theater, and given that I ‘d matched the Vest Edge with Razer’s haptic-toting Nari Ultimate I was experiencing every blow, every blast, similar to you would in a well-equipped movie theatre. No, wait. It’s better than that
