Whether it was Gunship and the pounding Drone Racing– the kick drum alone makes it worth taking a look at– Woojer Vest Sale… 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 club, 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 classical 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 find it tough to return.
Taking the 3.5 mm feed from the Oculus into the Vest Edge’s control unit, you then attach your earphones in series prior to depositing them on your head. I stressed that there ‘d be too many loose cable televisions, however with some positioning under and around the Vest Edge there was never ever anything in the way, and nor did it limit my movement.
If you have actually checked out apps like Prime Video VR or Bigscreen you’ll understand that they put you in a virtual movie theater, and seeing smash hits in VR can be quite special. Including in the Vest Edge tips things securely into ‘almost as excellent as the genuine thing’.
I went with Spider-Man Homecoming as my very first port of call, and things started out relatively controlled. I do not think I ‘d invested much time thinking about 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 serious depth to both the soundtrack and the superhero action. I enjoyed this; it’s definitely like having your own cinema, and given 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 well-equipped movie theatre. No, wait. It’s better than that
