Today marks a very special launch at Glorious. We are thrilled to release four tournament-grade mice, crafted for gaming enthusiasts in need of high performance gear. Introducing the Model O 2 PRO and the Model O 2 PRO 4K/8KHz Edition, as well as the Model D 2 PRO and the Model D 2 PRO 4K/8KHz Edition. In this article, we’ll break down how we came to develop these gaming mice, and dive into each of the features for all four devices.
A HIGH-PERFORMANCE GAMING MOUSE, YEARS IN THE MAKING
When we first released the original Model O back in 2019, it took the gaming community by storm. We designed it with direct feedback from gamers worldwide, and we were thrilled with the overwhelmingly positive response it received. Fast-forward a few years later, we hosted a limited edition group buy, featuring an enhanced version of this device: Model O PRO Forge Edition. It was a stripped down version of the original mouse, sporting only the necessary cutting-edge tech for optimal performance at the lightest weight possible. Though we will no longer be hosting group buys, we decided to take this optimized mouse, turbocharge it with next-generation technology (more on this later), and make it one of our mainline products.
These new mice are our highest performing mice to date, and they are available in two sizes: the Model O 2 PRO is a low-profile, symmetrical shape, suitable for all grip styles. The Model D 2 PRO, is an ergonomic shape that offers more supportive comfort for palm or claw grip. Both shapes are ideal for gamers with medium to larger hands.

PRO MICE SERIES FEATURES, EXPLAINED…
BAMF 2.0 26K OPTICAL SENSOR WITH MOTION SYNC
Boasting a 26K DPI resolution, 650 IPS speed, and 50G acceleration, this next generation sensor flawlessly tracks even your fastest mouse swipes. Its Motion Sync technology ensures aiming feels smooth and precise without jittering or skipping.
GLORIOUS OPTICAL SWITCHES
As quick as they are durable, Glorious Optical Switches are 80% faster than mechanical models and boast a 100M-click life span with no double clicks. Thanks to their infrared technology, registering inputs requires no physical contact with the switch (whereas a mechanical one does). When a click is made, infrared light signals the mouse to operate in just 0.2 ms (whereas mechanical ones take 1 millisecond or longer).
SUPERCHARGED 4K/8K POLLING RATE
Polling rate determines how many times per second a mouse reports its position to the computer. A mouse with 1K polling rate, reports its position 1,000 times per second. The 4K/8KHz Editions report mouse updates up to 8X more frequently than standard gaming mice. This allows your aim to glide and feel hyper responsive to support precise, split-second reactions. To use 8K polling, the mouse must be in Wired Mode. To get the most out of 4K/8KHz polling rates, we recommend a system with at least a 144 Hz refresh rate monitor and an Intel i5 9th generation CPU.
BLAZING-FAST 2.4GHZ WIRELESS CONNECTIVITY
Don’t let lag drag you down. Enjoy wired-like speed and reliability with wireless freedom. 2.4G Hz ensures seamless connectivity, allowing you to fully immerse yourself in the game without disruptions.
Less weight means more speed, and less fatigue. Don’t let weight slow down your reaction time. As a featherlight, competitive gaming mouse, the PRO Series mice are built for fast-paced games by minimizing discomfort and maximizing in-game responsiveness.
ERGONOMIC AND AMBIDEXTROUS SHAPES:
Award-winning Ambidextrous Shape
Designed to comfortably fit all grip styles. Perfect for gamers with medium to large hands. The symmetrical shape keeps your hand comfortable, allowing for sustained focus, even over longer sessions.
Comfortable Ergonomic Shape
Contoured to afford additional support to palm or claw grip style. Perfect for gamers with medium to large hands. Its ergonomic design keeps your hand comfortable, allowing for sustained focus, even over longer sessions.
OPTIMIZED SHELL DESIGN
The PRO Series mice sport a sleek, fully enclosed shell with an enhanced textured surface, giving it a comfortable grip and a premium finish. Offering cutting edge functionality and unmatched design.
80 HOURS OF BATTERY LIFE
Stay in the game, not by the charger. Without RGB consuming power, you can enjoy 80 hours of wireless gameplay. This ensures fewer interruptions and more focused gameplay sessions, offering you reliability when you need it most. Play as you recharge with the lightweight and super flexible paracord cable.
