HyperX Pulsefire Haste 2

HyperX Pulsefire Haste 2 Wired Review

HyperX has recently introduced the Pulsefire Haste 2 wired mouse during CES 2023. This latest model boasts a sleek appearance, and still maintains its ultra lightweight design. HyperX has also made significant improvements to the sensor and switches, and an 8,000 polling rate.


Weight: 53g design

  • Connectivity: wired
  • Sensor: HyperX 26K Sensor
  • Buttons: 6 programmable buttons
  • Max DPI: of up to 26,000
  • Polling rate: 8000 Hz polling rate
  • Features: Compatible with NGENUITY software
  • Colours: Black or white (also available in a wireless version)

Despite the updated design, the ultra-lightweight structure has been maintained without any compromise. HyperX has chosen to retain the mouse’s original shape, excluding the honeycomb pattern. This decision allows the HyperX logo to occupy a prominent position on the mouse.

A side-by-side comparison of the two reveals that HyperX has successfully preserved the Pulsefire Haste’s signature design while incorporating new improvements. This has resulted in a visually impressive new mouse that retains the features gamers have come to love.

Another design feature is utilising the NGENUITY software for RGB customisation plus adjusting the DPI presets. There are four you can change by adding your own or removing them to adjust to your play style.

Overall, the updated design of the Pulsefire Haste has resulted in a better-performing mouse with the introduction of the new model. During our testing, we found that the mouse was comfortable to use for extended periods, regardless of whether we were gaming, working, or editing videos. The ultra-lightweight design of the Pulsefire Haste 2, combined with its improved features for faster performance, make it an excellent choice for gamers. We were impressed with its precision while playing The Last of Us Part 1, as it allowed for effortless movement. With its great features and affordable price point, the Pulsefire Haste 2 wired gaming mouse from HyperX is a must-have for anyone in the market for a new gaming mouse. 

The mouse comes in black or white and will be available in stores from April 18th, 2023.
