Whether it was Gunship and the pounding Drone Racing– the kick drum alone makes it worth checking out– Woojer Vest Hard Reset… 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 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 way you can’t easily reproduce. If you’re a fan of classical music or 60s pop there’s going to be less of a draw, however if your taste alters towards the heavier end you’ll discover it difficult to return.
I followed up my musical jaunts with some motion picture time. This was where I took my first foray into VR with the Vest Edge, and the set up on Oculus Quest 2 was simple and swift. Taking the 3.5 mm feed from the Oculus into the Vest Edge’s control unit, you then connect your headphones in series before transferring them on your head. I stressed 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 way, and nor did it limit my motion.
If you’ve examined out apps like Prime Video VR or Bigscreen you’ll understand that they put you in a virtual cinema, and watching hits in VR can be quite special. Including in the Vest Edge suggestions things firmly into ‘almost as excellent as the genuine thing’.
I went with Spider-Man Homecoming as my first port of call, and things began reasonably suppressed. I do not believe I ‘d spent much time thinking about how filmmakers fine-tune the sound mix to draw the audience in, however the absence of low frequencies in the opening was hammered home once they appeared, adding severe 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 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 movie theatre. No, wait. It’s much better than that
