Packaging & Design

The Pulsefire Haste comes in red and white box. Inside the box is the quick start guide, welcome letter, four additional Teflon feet, two extra grip stickers for the front buttons and two for the sides.

The mouse is built entirely using high-quality plastic with a matte finish. It is very compact and lightweight with its dimensions of 124.2 mm x 38.2mm x 66.8 and a weight of only 59 grams (80g with cable). The HyperFlex cable with the USB 2.0 connector is 1.8 meters long and very flexible with minimal resistance and does not interrupt movements.

The mouse looks simple with its honeycomb shell, making it lighter than a solid shell mouse. The two main buttons, the lower part of the mice and the base all have perforated hexagonal holes and the open mesh design allow for better ventilation and airflow.

There are a total of six buttons on the HyperX Pulsefire Haste and they can be programmed via the HyperX NGENUITY software.

At the top are the two main mouse buttons, the scroll wheel and a button to switch between different DPI settings. The two main buttons feature TTC Golden micro switches that are dustproof and allows for a durability of up to 60 million keystrokes. The scroll wheel has a rubber finish, provides good feedback with almost no resistance and minimal drag. The only RGB lighting is on the scroll wheel which can be controlled using the HyperX software.

On the left are two side buttons with a glossy finish and are easily accessible. The included grip stickers can be attached to its left and right side to improve grip if required. There are no buttons on the right side of the mouse.

At the base is the PixArt PAW3335 sensor and four pure Teflon feet that ensure smooth gliding on most surfaces.

The HyperX Pulsefire Haste is symmetrically designed and the mouse is perfect for both left and right-handed users. The two side buttons on left side are programmable, have a curved design and are easy to reach. Overall, the build quality is good, the mouse feels durable and can adapt to most grip styles.

Performance

The mouse is equipped with a PixArt PAW-3335 optical sensor with a sensitivity up to 16,000 DPI, a maximum tracking speed of 400 IPS and 1000 Hz polling rate. The mouse features one on-board memory profile that can be customized with the HyperX NGENUITY software. The HyperX Pulsefire Haste doesn’t have a lift-off-distance (LOD) adjustment options and falls short here.

In our everyday test, the mouse performed well and with very good overall impressions for the price segment. The mouse also performed well in normal and fast-paced games. The main buttons click very precisely and have a well-defined pressure point. The buttons are easily accessible and the matte surface offers a good grip.

The Hyperflex braided cable is very flexible with minimal resistance and does not interrupt movements. The mouse can be easily adapted to your own preferences and skills with the HyperX software.

Software

The HyperX Pulsefire Haste can be used out of the box without the use of any software. For additional customization, the HyperX NGENUITY software can be used to tweak DPI settings to a maximum of five levels, RGB lighting, record macros and remap four of the six mouse buttons. You can also adjust the RGB wheel’s brightness and polling rate.

Verdict

The HyperX Pulsefire Haste is an affordable, ambidextrous gaming mouse for esports and FPS gamers with a good performance & feature set. With an ultralight design, its symmetrical shape offers versatility for most types of grips and also comes with additional grip tape and Teflon feet.

Couple of downsides is that there are no extensive sensor settings are available in the HyperX NGENUITY software and the mouse does not support lift-off-distance.
