SteelSeries Wireless Sensei Announced

Coming out of the International CES in Las Vegas, SteelSeries has announced a new edition to its popular line of gaming mice. The Sensei, which has received numerous awards and positive reviews from various sites, is getting an upgrade. The new SteelSeries Sensei Wireless gaming mouse was announced, featuring switches, configurable CPI settings, and a purported 16 hours of wireless gaming power. The unit, according to the popular hardware manufacturer, offers lag-free wireless performance on par with the best wired gaming mice.

From the CEO

Bruce Hawver, current CEO of SteelSeries, stated, “The Sensei name and line-up has always been about delivering best-in-class performance to users who want a mouse that takes what is considered “good” and exceeds expectations on performance, technology, software and capability.” He also went on to say, “The Sensei Wireless holds true to its name and was built to be the best wireless gaming mouse on the market with a wireless performance and features that will sure to impress its users.”

Wireless Sensei Details

The new Wireless Sensei will feature many of the same popular features from the wired version of the mouse with the same name. It bequeaths the premium laser sensor that offers a configurable CPI up to 8,200 and premium switches designed for a 30-million click lifespan. The Wireless Sensei will purportedly offer a fast response and feel, with eight programmable buttons which can be configured via the SteelSeries Engine software, which is free.

The wireless functionality, according to the press release, has a 1ms response time, meaning there will be no detectable lag to gamers. On a full charge, the unit aims to offer 16 hours of non-stop wireless gaming, or up to 20 hours for common gaming. The base station is a charging dock as well as a wireless transmitter/receiver, and indicates battery life even when the mouse is off the base. The dock plugs in via a USB connection and allows the mouse to be used while charging for “charge-and-play” abilities.

Lefties Rejoice!

In an industry that is largely dominated by tech that caters to right-handed gamers, SteelSeries has made the Wireless Sensei ambidextrous, with rubberized accents for gri. This allows both righties and lefties able to use the mouse. The unit can also choose from 16.8 million color illumination choices which are saved into a profile.


The Wireless Sensei from SteelSeries will have an MSRP of $159.99 and become available in March 2014. Orders will be available at the SteelSeries website. It is assumed that the unit will also be available through various online and retail partners.

Quick Take

The Sensei mouse is a very popular gaming mouse that retails for about $60 that has receive much critical praise. This new version of the mouse looks pretty sick, since it’s wireless and can still be used on the base dock while charging. The only negative for gamers might be that MSRP which is a big hike over the “vanilla” version of the product.
