Whether it was Gunship and the pounding Drone Racing– the kick drum alone makes it worth having a look at– Woojer Vest Price… 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 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 manner 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 find it difficult to go back.
I followed up my musical jaunts with some film 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 swift and easy. Taking the 3.5 mm feed from the Oculus into the Vest Edge’s control system, you then attach your headphones in series before depositing them on your head. I worried that there ‘d be too many loose cable televisions, however with some placing under and around the Vest Edge there was never ever anything in the way, and nor did it restrict my motion.
If you have actually examined out apps like Prime Video VR or Bigscreen you’ll know that they put you in a virtual cinema, and enjoying blockbusters in VR can be quite special. Adding in the Vest Edge suggestions things firmly into ‘nearly as good as the real thing’.
I do not think I ‘d invested much time believing about how filmmakers tweak the sound mix to draw the audience in, however the lack of low frequencies in the opening was hammered home once they appeared, including major depth to both the superhero and the soundtrack action. I liked this; it’s absolutely like having your own movie theater, and provided that I ‘d combined the Vest Edge with Razer’s haptic-toting Nari Ultimate I was experiencing every blow, every blast, simply like you would in a fully equipped film theatre.
