DESIGN AND BUILD QUALITY

The Impulse PRO’s has an ambidextrous design which can be used by right and left-handed gamers. This would suit people who uses fingertip grip. The cable is braided, and the shell has matte texture feel on to it. Both sides have textured grips and 2 buttons which acts as the forward and back button.

The top has the standard right and left buttons along with a textured rubber scroll wheel. Aside from that they also have the DPI button and a button that controls the RGB function of the mouse.

Underneath we see the sensor and a switch that disables the side buttons if you choose the preferred mode (right-hand mode disables the right-side buttons vice versa when using the left-hand mode). The mouse weighs around 105g which heavy for some gamers.

USER EXPERIENCE AND CONCLUSION

PERFORMANCE

I really enjoyed using the mouse and it became my daily driver for almost 3 weeks now. The shape and design really fit my hybrid fingertip grip and the coating of the plastic made me enjoy using it. I had a past experience where some mice have this oily or greasy feel in using it over time but I haven’t experienced it here. I haven’t experienced any sensor issues and buttons are very crisp.

I must say this mouse even improved my aim in FPS games like PUBG and Overwatch. The only downsides I’ve seen are the stiff braided cable and the weight. I hope they will revise the mouse with a better cable like a soft rubber one and keep the weight under 90g.

SOFTWARE

The Impulse Pro comes with the Impulse PRO360 software which allows you the customize the mouse. The software allows you to customize your buttons, sensitivity, LED and parameters. You can also record macros if you need to.

CONCLUSION

The Impulse PRO is a very featured pack mouse. For the price of 1250 PHP, you get a top of the line PWM 3360 sensor, Huano Switches, good build quality, and even RGB. Even though it’s a great mouse for its price, It also has its downsides like its stiff braided cable and the weight which is heavy for FPS gamers like me.

Pros:

  • PWM 3360 Sensor
  • Huano Switches
  • Good Build Quality
  • Customizable through software and on the fly customization

Cons:

  • Weighs at around 105g which is considered to be on the heavy side
  • Very stiff braided cable which adds resistance to mouse movements
  • The coating might not be good for people with sweaty hands
