Whether it was Gunship and the pounding Drone Racing– the kick drum alone makes it worth checking out– Woojer Vest Demo… 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 nightclub, 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, however if your taste skews towards the much heavier end you’ll discover it tough to return.
Taking the 3.5 mm feed from the Oculus into the Vest Edge’s control unit, you then connect your earphones in series prior to transferring them on your head. I worried that there ‘d be too many loose cables, but with some positioning under and around the Vest Edge there was never anything in the way, and nor did it restrict my motion.
You’re finest served here with some powerful programs; I’m believing more Michael Bay than Michael Moore. While you can have this established for regular watching– it’s a cinch if you’re hooked into your DualSense or Xbox controller– VR viewing is categorically the way forward. If you have actually checked out apps like Prime Video VR or Bigscreen you’ll understand that they put you in a virtual cinema, and watching smash hits in VR can be pretty special. Including the Vest Edge tips things firmly into ‘almost as good as the real thing’.
I selected Spider-Man Homecoming as my first port of call, and things started relatively subdued. I do not believe I ‘d invested much time thinking of how filmmakers fine-tune the sound mix to draw the audience in, but the absence of low frequencies in the opening was hammered home once they appeared, adding major depth to both the soundtrack and the superhero action. I liked 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, just like you would in a well-equipped movie theatre. No, wait. It’s much better than that
