Whether it was Gunship and the pounding Drone Racing– the kick drum alone makes it worth having a look at– Woojer Vest Quest 2… or The Word Alive’s Quit While You’re Ahead, I adored listening to music in this way. It’s somewhere 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 duplicate. If you’re a fan of classical music or 60s pop there’s going to be less of a draw, but if your taste skews towards the much heavier end you’ll find it difficult to go back.
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 Mission 2 was simple and speedy. 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 cable televisions, however with some positioning under and around the Vest Edge there was never anything in the method, and nor did it restrict my movement.
If you have actually checked out apps like Prime Video VR or Bigscreen you’ll know that they put you in a virtual movie theater, and enjoying blockbusters in VR can be quite special. Adding in the Vest Edge pointers things strongly into ‘nearly as great as the genuine thing’.
I don’t believe I ‘d invested much time thinking about how filmmakers tweak the sound mix to draw the audience in, but the lack of low frequencies in the opening was hammered home once they appeared, including major depth to both the soundtrack and the superhero action. I enjoyed 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 fully equipped film theatre.
