PARAMETRIC EQ

SPOT YOUR ENEMY SOONER

For the first time in gaming, you can tweak the entire spectrum of sound with magical precision.

Parametric EQ lets you amplify or reduce very specific in-game sounds to hear footsteps, reloads, and bomb plants better than ever.

PRO PRESETS

FLIP THE LEADERBOARD

Optimize your in-game sound with the click of a preset. Our sound engineers worked with pro players from teams like FaZe, OG and SK T1 to give you an instant edge.

Presets are the easiest way to start using the Parametric EQ. Want a bit more bass back? Personalize the preset and enjoy your climb to the top.

CRUSH THE COMP—NOT YOUR FRIEND'S VOICE

Once opted in, close GG via the systems tray and re-launch. After the GG restart you can then select to be part of the Sonar early access via the navigation on the home page.

No, Sonar works with any headset or audio device connected to your PC.

GG is our new software hub where you can find all your favorite SteelSeries applications such as Moments & Engine, with more to come in the future. 😉

No, Sonar is a PC only software at the moment. So any setting, effect or feature applied in Sonar will not apply when gaming with your console. Engine is the best place to apply settings that will work on console as well.

If you are using your headset on PC, we advise you to use Sonar as it offers much more audio tuning capabilities and features. Engine is a good place for console gaming and mobile.

If you don’t want to use an app such as Moments, you can turn it off in the settings. When turned off it will not effect your performance and will not run in the background.

The same goes for SteelSeries Engine. If you don’t have a SteelSeries device plugged in, the Engine application inside GG will not be running in the background.

To turn Moments off you can do either of the following:
1. Click the dropdown menu above the Moments gallery and turn off “Gameplay capture”
2. Go to Settings -> Capture and Sound -> Turn off “Allow Moments to capture while gaming”
