SteelSeries Revolutionises Gaming Audio With Alias Series Microphones Powered by Sonar Technology

SteelSeries has announced their new Alias microphone series, a landmark of innovation explicitly designed for gamers. With two decades of dedication to optimizing the gaming experience, SteelSeries takes audio to the next level with Alias microphones, enhanced by Sonar technology. And if you’ve read our reviews on their latest SteelSeries Arctis Nova Pro Wireless headphones, you know how good their Sonar tech is.

According to SteelSeries, current microphones on the market fall short of accommodating dynamic activities during streaming (expressive movements, lively commentaries, high-energy actions). The Alias microphones step in to provide the liberty and range essential to gamers.

While news anchors have production crews, most streamers handle everything solo, juggling both presentation and technical setup. SteelSeries addresses this challenge by creating an integrated system of hardware and software that simplifies the dual responsibilities of streaming and production. This powerful combo enables gamers to achieve studio-quality sound effortlessly, leveling up their streaming experience.

The Alias microphones come with a custom 1-inch condenser capsule, three times larger than standard capsules, ensuring optimal voice capture while isolating background noise. Their unique cardioid pattern further boosts vocal clarity, making it ideal for broadcast and studio recording. Paired with a tailor-made shock mount, Alias microphones allow gamers to fully express themselves without worrying about audio quality.

To complete the Alias system, SteelSeries introduces Sonar for Streamers, a complimentary, professional-grade software suite. It provides an integrated audio studio with advanced features like a 10-band Parametric EQ, ClearCast AI noise cancellation, and pro software mixing tools. Designed to work seamlessly with popular streaming software, Sonar relies on CPU processing to avoid affecting gaming performance.

The combination of Alias microphones and Sonar technology sets a new industry standard, delivering unmatched audio clarity, control, and customisation. Two versions are available:

  • Alias: A USB-powered microphone offering 24bit/48kHz audio quality, real-time monitoring, and on-the-fly controls, features a 5-stage LED indicator for mic peak level information. Connection to a PC is straightforward via USB, allowing gamers to easily manage input gain, mute, headphone volume, and connect a Nova series headset using a 3.5mm cable. Priced at AUD $399.
  • Alias Pro: An XLR microphone with pre-amplifier and 48V phantom power ensuring clean, powerful 24bit/48kHz audio. It’s complemented by the XLR Stream Mixer for professional-grade audio controls which supports optional dual PC streaming using two USB ports and Sonar Software. Priced at AUD $699.

The Alias and Alias Pro microphones are available at and authorised retailers in Australia.
