Get Woojer Vest Connection 22% OFF

 

Whether it was Gunship and the pounding Drone Racing– the kick drum alone makes it worth having a look at– Woojer Vest Connection… 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 next to a bass bin in a bar, and if you’re a fan of music the Woojer Vest Edge brings it to life in a manner 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, however if your taste skews towards the much heavier end you’ll find it difficult to return.

I followed up my musical jaunts with some movie time. This was where I took my first venture into VR with the Vest Edge, and the set up on Oculus Quest 2 was swift and basic. Taking the 3.5 mm feed from the Oculus into the Vest Edge’s control system, you then connect your earphones in series prior to depositing them on your head. I fretted that there ‘d be a lot of loose cable televisions, but with some positioning under and around the Vest Edge there was never anything in the method, and nor did it limit my motion.

If you’ve checked out apps like Prime Video VR or Bigscreen you’ll know that they put you in a virtual cinema, and viewing smash hits in VR can be pretty special. Adding in the Vest Edge ideas things firmly into ‘nearly as good as the real thing’.

I went with Spider-Man Homecoming as my first port of call, and things started reasonably controlled. I don’t think I ‘d invested much time thinking about how filmmakers fine-tune the sound mix to draw the audience in, however the absence 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 combined 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
