Cyber Snipa Sonar 5.1 Championship Review
Published: 19th April 2011 | Source: Cyber Snipa | Price: £41.77 |
Surround sound is one element of a gaming setup that can make a huge difference to your performance. No matter if you're playing a racing game, spotting enemy flag runners, or annihilating the Zerg, those little audio direction cues really help save a tenth or two in either killing them, or at least being aware of your surroundings.
For a long while those of us who use headphones were limited either to a pseudo-surround effect via DSP, or re-mortgaging the house for a pukka pair of 5.1s.
Thankfully as technology continues its rapid advancement of endlessly giving us better, cheaper, products the world of genuine surround headphones is now within the reach of the masses. This neatly segues us to the Cyber Snipa Sonar 5.1 Championship Headset. Lengthy indeed in name, but thankfully at only £50, not too lengthy in price.
Let's grab a look at the specifications before we take a look at the headset itself.
The Sonar comes with 4 speakers in each ear, front, center and back, and also for you bass heads includes a subwoofer as well. USB connectivity ensures that it's compatible with almost anything you choose to plug it into. It also has an inline remote for controlling your audio experience.
|Operating System: Windows 2000/XP/Vista/7|
|Connection port: USB 2.0|

Time to have a look at the Sonar 5.1 Championship itself.
