The HyperX Pulsefire Haste Mouse is HyperX’s first entry into honeycomb hole design lightweight gaming mice, and even on their first try, they have done a really excellent job. At a price of 50 US Dollars or 3700 Rs. India, this is going to give serious competition to companies that get pissed off because putting holes in a mouse cannot be patented. Hey guys, I am Siddharth, and let’s check out how good this is. The design of the Pulsefire haste is pretty similar to other gaming mice with holes, so you just have a well thought out shape with a hexagonally perforated body.
The only lighting zone on it is a ring on its scroll wheel, and that is completely fine for a serious gaming mouse like this. You also get some grip tapes in the box which you can use on the mouse to improve your grip, though I really didn’t feel like there was any issue with my grip on this mouse so I didn’t use it. The shape of the HyperX Pulsefire Haste Mouse is very versatile, and it should work well with a variety of hand sizes, for my claw-palm hybrid grip style with my 19 centimetre longhand, works really well, and claw grip on it is also easy to use.
This mouse doesn’t feel to be suited for a palm grip, but you can try that if you have smaller hands. All the holes on this mouse are of course going to let all the dust, food, hair, and body fluids get into the mouse, but HyperX Pulsefire Haste Mouse has used TTC Golden Microswitches which have a dustproof coating, so even if the mouse gets dust inside, the switches should not get affected. The primary buttons are detached from the body, and they feel really nice and clicky. The travel distance is slightly higher than some other mice I’ve used, but that is not a negative. The scroll wheel is nice too, but the stepson it aren’t very tactile, so it is great for scrolling long webpages, but when changing guns in games the steps aren’t easy to feel.
The middle click is light and works well. We have two extra buttons on the left side. They are in a very good position and they feel very tactile. The DPI switch button is located on top behind the scroll wheel, and it is very easy to operate. At just 59 grams, the mouse is very light for its size, and the construction of it also feels solid, and even though the DPI button does get pressed if you press on the body, it doesn’t happen when you’re using this normally or while gaming. The mouse feet underneath are made of Polytetrafluoroethylene, and they let the mouse glide very smoothly on the mousepad. I also tried another PTFE mouse alongside it, and the lower surface area of the Pulsefire Haste actually reduces the friction and makes it smoother on the mousepad compared to another more expensive lightweight gaming mouse I tested.
You also get extra mouse feet inside the box to use when the original ones get worn out. The cable on the Haste is a flexible paracord that we have also been seeing on other gaming mice recently, it doesn’t get tangled or hinder the mouse movement, and I really like this design. HyperX Pulsefire Haste Mouse has used Pixart’s 3335 sensor which goes up to 16,000 DPI and combined with its low weight, and it’s a well thought out shape, the gaming performance on it is really good. There are of course no issues with tracking, angle snapping, or acceleration, and the lift-off distance is also less than 1 DVD.
I recently did a test on humanbenchmark.net, and amongst the 3 very good performing gaming mice, this was the one that I felt like using the most to get my top score in their aimest, and that really says a lot about how good this mouse is. Even for general desktop use, I found its weight to make things feel easier, so this mouse just feels really great to use, whether you’re gaming or just doing everyday things. The HyperX Ingenuity software is something that I wasn’t a fan of, but now they have completely redesigned the app, and I like this approach much better. The customization with the software is adequate, you can change what different buttons do, apply any mouse or keyboard function you want on them, and you can also add your recorded macros. DPIs at different levels can be changed, and the lighting on the scroll wheel can of course be customized.
There are different profiles that you can add which you can link to game exe files so it will switch to them when those games or programs launch, but it’s not like Logitech software which can change profiles based on which program is in focus. The mouse also has onboard memory, so you can also store your settings of a single profile on the hardware level so that it can work without the software. So overall, the HyperX Pulsefire haste is really amongst the top gaming mice on the market, and it is quite impressive of HyperX to execute their first honeycomb hole mouse so well. There aren’t really any new or exciting features on it, and it is quite similar to other honeycomb gaming mice, but they have followed the formula of if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it, which is completely fine, and the end result of it is a no-nonsense lightweight gaming mouse that performs well in all areas, while also not costing that much.
So I can also give this a very solid recommendation, So this concludes the topic for HyperX Pulsefire Haste Mouse.
