Whether it was Gunship and the pounding Drone Racing– the kick drum alone makes it worth having a look at– Woojer Vest Pro… 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 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 reproduce. If you’re a fan of classical 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 hard 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 quick and basic. Taking the 3.5 mm feed from the Oculus into the Vest Edge’s control system, you then connect your headphones in series before transferring them on your head. I stressed that there ‘d be a lot of loose cables, however with some positioning under and around the Vest Edge there was never anything in the way, and nor did it limit 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 routine watching– it’s a cinch if you’re hooked into your DualSense or Xbox controller– VR watching is unconditionally the method forward. If you’ve had a look at apps like Prime Video VR or Bigscreen you’ll know that they put you in a virtual movie theater, and viewing blockbusters in VR can be pretty special. Including the Vest Edge ideas things strongly into ‘nearly as good as the real thing’.
I don’t believe I ‘d spent much time thinking about how filmmakers modify the sound mix to draw the audience in, but the absence of low frequencies in the opening was hammered home once they appeared, including major depth to both the soundtrack and the superhero action. I liked this; it’s absolutely like having your own movie theater, and given that I ‘d matched 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 movie theatre.
