Whether it was Gunship and the pounding Drone Racing– the kick drum alone makes it worth having a look at– Woojer Vest 7.1 Pro… or The Word Alive’s Quit While You’re Ahead, I adored listening to music in this way. It’s someplace 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 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, however if your taste skews towards the much heavier end you’ll find it difficult to go back.
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 Quest 2 was speedy 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 worried that there ‘d be a lot of loose cable televisions, but with some placing under and around the Vest Edge there was never anything in the way, and nor did it restrict my movement.
You’re best served here with some effective shows; I’m believing more Michael Bay than Michael Moore. While you can have this established for routine watching– it’s a cinch if you’re hooked into your DualSense or Xbox controller– VR watching is categorically the way forward. If you have actually taken a look at apps like Prime Video VR or Bigscreen you’ll know that they put you in a virtual movie theater, and seeing smash hits in VR can be pretty special. Adding in the Vest Edge suggestions things securely into ‘nearly as good as the real thing’.
I chose Spider-Man Homecoming as my very first port of call, and things began reasonably subdued. I do not believe I ‘d invested much time thinking of how filmmakers tweak the sound mix to draw the audience in, however 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 movie theater, 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 better than that
