Details

Comfort is well catered for. The headband of the Sonar has a padded mesh to take the strain, although the headset is by no means heavy. The speakers are covered with a sponge-filled velour coating which is very soft against your ears. Nice.

The microphone is on a flexible bar so it can be positioned wherever you like and wont be bent by an injudicious knock.

Documentation is taken care of by a small manual and a mini-CD with the drivers on it. Speaking of which.

Software

The Sonar 5.1 Championship comes with a very comprehensive driver package that can control everything from simplistic volume into some extreme digital effects.

As you can see the list is fulsome although most of the effects definitely stray into 'cool but unusable' territory as they have so much reverb and echo that it becomes a bit of a mess. The bottom few settings included gated effects that really are bizarre. Try once and never again. Unless you want Ramirez to sound like a Dalek.

Also included is the good old karaoke mode for fading out vocals which does a reasonable job. The pitch-shifter though is very good at doing exactly that without adjusting tempo. Finally it's possible to make Justin Beiber sound like a male.

Link fixed and indeed this is a review by VonBlade. I might point out if it wasnt for VB there would have been no reviews while I was at GSL....
