Sonic rifles tended to be less powerful than conventional blasters, but they compensated for this by being more likely to pierce less advanced personal energy shields and disorienting their targets with sensory overload.
Like all sonic weapons, the sonic rifle was particularly effective against Jedi and Sith because the weapon could not be deflected by a lightsaber. Additionally, the sonic damage was sometimes able to disrupt the target's equilibrium, causing disorientation.
